I’m pretty sure children do not need to go to the zoo on Monday, go-karting on Tuesday, Alton Towers on Wednesday, a water park on Thursday, the cinema on Friday, the trampoline park on Saturday and bowling on Sunday – is it me? Or is this a little excessive? Lots of parents could only afford to do one of these things a month, so showcasing this as a ‘standard week’ in the holidays is a little unfair I think.

If your children haven’t already broken up for the end of the summer, they soon will be. Whilst the summer holidays can bring a lot of joy and fun times together, parents often find these weeks a really difficult juggle. The cupboards need to be stocked more frequently as well, you only have to blink […]
We have already been fairly lucky with the weather this summer and whilst it might be hitting a rainy spell at the moment (anyone else been affected by scary thunder storms?!) we’re holding out hope for the sun to come back out again before the season is out.
