Afternoon Tea at The Wallace Collection

  My lovely step-mum moved down from up north to the other side of London last summer. This means that we can do things like pop over for coffee or meet up for afternoons in London instead of a pre-planned four hour journey to meet…

Fairies, Pirates and Playdates

  I don’t know about you but the half-term holiday just flew by here. Maybe something about having the Monday as a bank holiday. I just can’t believe we are now into the last 6 weeks of Seren’s Reception year! The clock is ticking…

Rainy Bank Holiday Monday

Well it’s Bank Holiday Monday so it had to rain right? I’m still thinking how lucky we were with the summery weather a few weeks ago and the gardens probably need some rain. We had planned to walk from my inlaws house to Forty…

Sunshine, splashing and London’s Ice Cream Farm

  I feel like we’ve well and truly started summer over the last few days! Picnics, building sandcastles, BBQs, paddling pool, suncream, sunhats and sandals on! Which all feels a bit strange given we haven’t even had Easter yet. Yesterday, we popped to the…
