Last year one of our stand out halloween memories was taking part in our local Pumpkin Hunt with Demelza Hospice.

Like most of us, we break up for the half term break this week, and with two whole weeks (and a week of parenting solo) ahead, it can be a bit daunting to know exactly what we are going to do with the kids without breaking the bank or getting cabin fever! more “Half Term Fun with Demelza Halloween Pumpkin Hunt 2018”
Like most kids, our daughters have been obsessed with The Greatest Showman since they first laid eyes on it. Needless to say, I knew they would jump at the chance to see a real live circus, in an actual big top with breath taking stunts, hilarious clowns, and a whole dose of #DontTryThisAtHome. more “ROLL UP ROLL UP @ThePaulosCircus comes to town”
When was the last time you went on a bus? And I’m not talking about a school trip, airport transfer or minibus to that hen do… And more specifically, have you taken your kids on a bus trip? It’s something so simple yet so many of us omit from our kids childhood in favour of the convenience of leaping in the car to get from A to B. more “The children on the bus… A summer family day out to Bluewater with Arriva Thameside service”
