Summer Holiday Bucket List

Summer Holiday Bucket List

Do you plan your summer holidays and how you are going to keep the kids busy or just take each day as it comes?

I find that being organised and planning ahead works well for us and also allows me to work within a budget mixing free events and activities with paid ones. One of the strategies I have adopted this year is to…

Bug! Day at Imperial College, Silwood Park, Ascot

Bug! Day at Imperial College, Silwood Park, Ascot

It always makes my day when you find out about an amazing event taking place in Berkshire, thanks to @hello.happiness.windsor for the recommendation. I had no idea Imperial College had a campus in Ascot and it’s such a beautiful place to have spent an afternoon.

A day at West Wittering Beach

A day at West Wittering Beach

On Sunday 24th June we headed for a day on the beach at West Wittering in Chichester. It’s one of our favourite beaches to visit, especially as it’s a sandy beach with good car parking facilities (we paid £8.50 to park for the day, which we paid by card on arrival) and is generally a relatively straight forward journey from Berkshire, traffic dependant. We arrived at about 10.30am and the car park was very busy but there was still room to park. The beach was also busy but due to its size it still felt to me as though there…
