Summer holidays with friends

This year is officially the first real summer holidays we have had. OK, we have had them whilst J attended nursery but school is official, you cant just pull them out for a day out with no worries. We also get into a routine of not having them around 5 days a week for 8 hours a day, so when they are suddenly thrown back into the mix with the attitudes they have learnt from school, and the new found boredom of having nothing structured to do we are left pulling our hair out.

Maize maze at National Forest Adventure Farm

The maize was up and over the girls heads, the hot sun was beaming down on us. The dirt track was dry even though it rained earlier that morning. We could hear voices, but saw no one. Armed with a rucksack full of juice, full bellies and a flag on a pole if we needed help we were lost. Where were we? We were in the middle of a maize maze. Not just any maze. It was a HUGE over 3 miles worth of trail maze at National Forest Adventure Farm to celebrate JCB's 70 years.

Rainbow Promise

Last week saw J become an official part of girl guiding. She took her rainbow promise. I was a brownie when I was younger, and although I can not remember much of it apart from the hideous brown calottes, I remember being told that I could no longer be a brownie due to my behaviour. I later re-joined as a girl guide and those memories I do remember. They were filled with giggles, learning new skills that sometimes can not be taught at school and gave me something to do after school apart from just "chilling out".

Eurocamp Avant Accommodation Review

It feels so long ago now that we were on our holiday in France. The purpose of our holiday was to review the three bedroom Avant accommodation with Eurocamp. This style accommodation is new for 2015, and we were one of the first to step inside. Our accommodation was in La Pointe, St Giles which is in Bènodet, Brittany.
