Travel

We love exploring new places both in the uk and overseas. Follow our travel adventures as a family of 6.

Lanzarote

One of our favorite places is Lanzarote but there is so much more of the world we would like to visit.

Uk

Last Easter we had a little road trip to the lovely Isle of Wight. It was such a great family Holiday .

Days Out

Weekends are often spent exploring places closer to home for brilliant family days out.

Surviving the Spring Holidays – Staycation

So today is the first day of our Half Term Holidays and while friends of mine are holidaying with Mickey 🙁 and fellow bloggers are talking about holidays to my paradise Isle, I am at home.

A staycation of sorts.

I have a few plans but they are not set in stone!

So here is what I need to do for less stress

  • Get lots of healthy snacks ready  – When the ‘mummmmmmyyyy i’m hunnnngery” whines start I will be ready!
  • Craft packs – When it inevitably starts raining I need to make sure I have activities on hand for the “I’m bored” moments
  • Meal Plan – If I create a meal plan it will take the stress out of thinking up dinner ideas.
  • Grab & Go Basket – In here will be suncream, hats, Sunglasses and bottles of water.
  • Book a Sitter  (Nanny) – So that I can have a little break of my own. Probably for  a swim.
  • Outfits laid out – to take the stress out of mornings Im going to lay out each days outfit the night before.
  • Brief Plan of each day – So I said i have lots of ideas for the week and if i write down a plan for the week it means I’m going to actually do things and not think oh well not today.

Monday – Butterfly Zoo

Tuesday – Local Peppa Pig Event with picnic

Wednesday – Trip to the seaside

Thursday – Camp Out In the Garden (Weather Permitting)

Friday – Mummy’s swim day – Soft Play / Park day
