Festival Of Heroes 2017

"We are all mad here" 





When your a parent, you want nothing more then to see your little one smile, today poppy, my mum and I took a mini road trip to the Roman villa in Brading (iow). Yes, It was a road trip, it took an hour to get there #Islandlife. The festival of heroes was in aid of raising money for a local charity called the daisy chain charity. With many Disney character names announced on their Facebook page it seemed like a pretty good idea to take Poppy for the day. 





"Its always tea time" 

 it was another 40 minutes of queuing before we had even got in! But seeing poppys face light up at her favourite characters was rather special. She loved playing with the mad hatter, teasing him by taking his cups and pouring Alice invisible tea into hers! She was besotted with Belle, woody and jessy and gave a huge hug to Snow White. Although it was a pain in the arse with the travel and waiting to get in its the little moments like these that forget the bad ones. 

I hope you enjoyed the magical read
Lots of love

Jane Eyre at The Mayflower theatre

A night at the theatre with @sotonbloggers 




I've always been a theatre lover and I've seen many shows at the Mayflower theatre over the years, so when I was invited to see Sally cooksons new adaptation of Charlotte bronte's novel Jayne eyre last night, I had to be there. We were given Great seats where we sat comfortably waiting for the show to begin. I honestly had no idea what to expect on this "new take" of the novel, it was also a great time to announce the tour as 2017 is the 170th anniversary of when Jane eyre was first published. the highly acclaimed co-production between the national theatre and the Bristol old vic. 
Jayne Eyre, played by the amazingly talented Nadia Cliford, shows her beginnings as a destitute orphan overcomes life's obstacles from surviving poverty, injustice, betrayal and the ultimate decisions on following her heart. While others may of found the thought of Jayne Eyre on stage might not of been their cup of tea I can honestly say…

Rainy Day Toddler Activities

Rainy day toddler activities,






 Due to the weather recently turning into the typical none existent summer, the rain is back, and in full force! For me this is really hard as I take poppy on walks every morning. When it's terrible weather though I like to keep her cosy in the warm. I've been getting some inspiration through Pinterest and one of them was this cute little idea. All you need is play-dough, food skewers, Cheerios and a child friendly surface. 
This project helps with their Learning colours, numbers, hand-eye coordination, patience and eating (the Cheerios, not the play-dough) at the same time. Poppy really enjoyed this project, you could see her concentration face was really adorable it also helps her speech as she was saying a few colours without us prompting her.  Honestly give this a go with your little ones, it's pretty fun.

Hope you enjoyed read
