How I’m Feeling After Seeing My Dad

When Daddy got back from America. I told him I was going to see my Dad.  It wasn’t something we had really spoke about before he left.  We were to busy dealing with his fear of flying, and to be honest this is very much about my story.  The next day, I dropped the kids off at nursery, and ferried…

Why I’ve Been Trying To Find My Dad

Something has been playing on my mind recently, and to be honest it’s not something I really talk about on here very much.  I think it was Christmas that made me think about it more than usual.  As a blogger I was reading lots of lovely posts about how Christmas is a lovely time for people to reminisce over their…

What’s on for Families at Larmer Tree Festival 2016

I have literally been looking forward to going back to Larmer Tree Festival since our first visit last year.  As a family it was our first experience of camping with children and going to a family friendly festival and it really was a lot of fun.  We were blown away by the quality of the festival camping and all the…

Highfields Park in Nottingham is one of our very favourite places to go, and my daughter and I visited after going to the theatre on Sunday to see The Elves And The Shoemaker at Lakeside Arts.  Princess had the scooter and I had the camera and we enjoyed getting some fresh air together.  It was so nice to get out…
