My mum came to visit in September, it always flies by so quickly!

It’s always nice when family come to visit us down here in Ramsgate. It’s also really nice when my mum comes down too. Mum loves Ramsgate, she’s transfixed by the beauty of the Royal harbour and our magnificent golden sandy beach too. Her and her partner Leon love exploring the various towns and areas around…

Autumn is here and I love it

Now that November is here the mornings and nights are darker, the days colder and the floor littered with leaves, autumn is well and truly here. Amongst it all, the Sky daily has been beautiful. Looking out across the field near our house, we can see the stunning colours filling the sky as the sun…

I love Ramsgate

If you haven’t visited Ramsgate yet, why the heck not? Ramsgate is a beauty and home to the only Royal harbour in the country. To add to that it’s next door to a glorious sandy beach. Honestly it’s gorgeous and you have to check it out. Ok, so the high street isn’t great, but with…

Why is everyone hating on Wetherspoons in Ramsgate?

Since Wetherspoons announced they were coming to Ramsgate there has been plenty of views whether this is good or bad. Wetherspoons Ramsgate, you can’t fault it, it really does have something for everyone. Most of the groups on Facebook have someone at least once or twice a day complaining about Wetherspoons in Ramsgate. If it’s…

Walking Club in Ramsgate who’s with me?

So a few months ago, a friend and I were thinking of setting up a walking club of some sort. Obviously at the time everything was so weather dependent but now that the sun wants to stay, walking more and enjoying this fine coastline and fresh air seems like a great idea. We had originally…

I Want To Make Swimming More Of Emily’s Life

After a slight disappointing start with swimming for Emily earlier on thanks to the temperature at the pool where the classes were in the early stages of her little life, I’m still not giving up on my little water baby. Emily loves the bath. It’s almost, if not probably, the best time of day for…

Thanet needs more things to do for children under 5yo 

Last Thursday, Emily and I met up with Clare and her daughter Scarlet. Being half term the opportunities to do anything with our girls in the rain was limited and we bravely thought taking our little ones to the Bumble Bees soft play area would mean that parents would avoid it because it was half…

Our first holiday together 

Last month, Sam, Emily and I returned from our week away in Southern Spain. As we arrived at Gatwick and looked out to the shiny bright light that was the sun, when those doors opened, the cold air that hit, sure reminded us we were no longer on holiday anymore, in holiday mode and heading towards…

Sand in my toes 

I’m looking forward to to our holiday in a few weeks. Back in March Emily felt the sand in her toes at Broadstairs beach for the first time. She was a little unsure at first, but after a few taps, snuggling her toes deeper in the squishy sand, she liked it. Now that summer is…

This past week…

This week has been mad. Along with the usual work stuff, a bit of babysitting Emily’s cousinin Maidstone, Emily has been in a pretty crappy mood and I’ve not been that far behind either. She’s not only teething and suffering from the never-ending growing pains, she’s also really agitated and frustrated that she can’t crawl….
