19 Books For 2019 - The Life Of Rylan by Rylan Clark-Neal


Can you believe it! I’ve read another book and this one I read in a few days. Maybe it was the piece and quiet and lack of tech on our holiday or maybe it was simply because it was such a good read.

Book 4 of my 19 books for 2019, was Rylan Clark-Neal’s autobiography, The Life of Rylan.

Sudbury Hall and the National Trust Museum of Childhood


Nestled in Derbyshire, Sudbury Hall and the National Trust Museum of Childhood, combines a historic country home and childhood memories of the past.

Arriving at Sudbury over a bank holiday weekend we found it to be quite popular. With the car park situated across the road from the main hall and museum, the walk takes you on a picturesque view up to the property.

Beach Scavenger Hunt - British Beach Edition


Lots of you love my spotting activities and there's one for nearly every season, the seaside and even Halloween and Christmas. Spotting activities are ideal for keeping the kids entertained as they look out the window on long car journeys asking 'are we there yet?!', or when they get bored whilst out for a stroll, but what about when you'd like to keep them entertained elsewhere?  Perhaps at the beach or in a forest? Maybe add in a little adventure too?

Well, this is where a scavenger hunt comes in! So, for the first time ever welcome to the Mummy Snowy Owl Scavenger Hunt!! As it's summertime and lots of us will be off for a paddle at the seaside, I thought a beach scavenger hunt was the perfect way to start.
