Let that be a lesson!

Last weekend, I madly posted a blog post about how happy I was that our journey from Ramsgate to Bristol was a breeze. Out of all of the journeys that we had to and from Ramsgate and Bristol, for that trip on that Saturday in all it’s gorgeous glorious sunshine was the best travel day…

Our weekend in Kingston

A few months ago, we travelled to London to visit my mum for Mother’s Day. But the weekend was a little all over the place, which meant the actual Mother’s Day wasn’t spent with my mum, but it was spent with my little family which was lovely. So here’s the thing, with Mother’s Day approaching,…

We’re going to London for Easter

Emily and I are up in London for Easter this year. It’s my mums 60th and fingers crossed the weather will be nice for us to all enjoy our time meeting friends and family. It’s a weird one this year for so many different reasons. It’s our first time spending Easter without Sam. It’s the…

High Speed trains vs slow trains with a toddler

On the few occasions that we travel to London to visit my family, we take the train up. Living in Ramsgate, we luckily have the high speed trains to London’s St Pancras, which at 1 hour and 16 minutes, means little fuss and easy access to London. High speed train services aren’t the only trains…

Our trip to Bristol

It’s taken me ages to write this post but it’s not because I forgot, it was trying to find the time, I seem to have very little of time these days. A couple of months back, Sam, Emily and I went up to visit Sam’s brother and family for a long weekend. We had a…

Travelling to Bristol with a small child

For the record, we’re not travelling to Bristol again by train. What a nightmare. Delay, after delay after delay. As if the morning wasn’t hectic enough with Emily deciding her Picasso moment had to shine through with my red nail varnish she found in my bag and painted everything in sight including herself, her pretty…

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…

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…

Travelling with a baby abroad

Travelling with kids can be terrifying. I heard the horror stories, I read plenty of them and I thought different when we went on holiday with Emily in September last year. Sam and I weren’t really sure how the journey was going to pan out. We assumed the worst, admittedly, and I frantically bought every…

Monday’s trip home was a nightmare in London

Monday we came home from spending a weekend with family and friends in Isleworth, my hometown. The weekend was lovely, but it went by so quickly. Time just flew, by it was great to see everyone, including my niece who we picked up from school on the Friday, gave her her birthday presents early and…
