Fort Fun is Eastbourne’s best adventure park  bursting with so many different activities from indoor soft play, a massive outdoor adventure play area, bouncy pillows, American golf and much much more! This Christmas Fort Fun has introduced ‘Breakfast with the Elves’. Every Saturday and Sunday in December leading up to Christmas, from 9 am you can enjoy a buffet style breakfast of pastries and cereals followed by a traditional English breakfast. All while the North pole Elves make sure you have an enjoyable and magical experience! I jumped at the chance when I was asked if we would like to pop down one morning to see what was on offer. It was just up Finlay’s street and I have loved Fort Fun Since I was a little girl myself!

We booked our tickets well in advance online. I’m guessing you can buy your tickets on the day in person but the chances are the sleigh rides (you choose your time slot) may be sold out. They were quite limited already when we booked back in October!… Read More

Baby Milestones development 9 months old 36 weeks

 

Today is a very special milestone for little baby Emmeline. Today, and yes TODAY (I haven’t missed this update, first time ever I think!) Emmie is 9 months old. Special because she has been out in the big wide world for as long as she was tucked away in my tummy. So it’s been another month since Emmie’s 8 month update and another 4 weeks that have passed far too quickly. She is growing up very fast and has come leaps and bounds this month. without furthur ado, Today I am 9 months old!

 

Weight: 16lb 5oz

 

Emmie and I popped along to clinic this morning after I dropped Finlay at school ready to self weigh. I stripped Emmie off and popped her on the scales. The scale read 7.465kg, I didn’t have my little red book, but It was only 4oz heavier than her last weigh in.… Read More

Luxury Christmas Food Hampers: Prestige Hampers Review

Christmas Gift ideas Luxury Christmas Food Hamper Prestige Hamper Review

 

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The magic has well and truly arrived.  I don’t know about you but I get quite nostalgic when it comes to Christmas. Although I have very few memories of Christmas as a kid, I have a few special snippets. Little things can trigger those memories and I love it. Growing up in the 80’s was awesome, and I do remember that hampers were everywhere. Whatever the occasion there was a hamper. It wasn’t like today no way. In my day some old ‘Del Boy’ would turn up at the door, take your order and a few days later it would arrive on a milk float! How I remember the Hamper of Multicoloured Fizzy pop turning up. A hamper that today would have every health professional having a heart attack, but I loved it!

 

So when I got the Chance to review a luxury Christmas Hamper from Prestige Hampers, I got that that little fluttery feeling deep inside and those luminous bottles of pop from my childhood danced inside my head!… Read More
