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…

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…

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…

We’re going to Isleworth on Friday

We are going to Isleworth this weekend and I really can’t wait. Although I saw my mum a few weeks ago for Emily’s first birthday in London for lunch, it was only brief for a few hours and not long enough. It was be great to catch up with my niece, sister, grandparents, mum and…

London’s Public transport with a baby

Public transport in London is very different to down here in Ramsgate. It’s busy, hectic, a mad rush, busy, constantly busy and if you’re not moving quickly, Londoners tend to let you know about it. Before I moved to Ramsgate, I lived in South West London for most of my life’s whole 26 years. And…

Travelling with a little lady

Emily and I made the long trip up to London to see family last week from Ramsgate. Without a car it’s difficult to go back to my hometown and see family with a little baby and this was my first trip since I was pregnant going up for my baby shower last August. On the…
