Day trippin’ with Mothers Meeting

Feel like I have been MIA since returning to work, so when Mothers Meeting suggest a day out of London, I booked the day off and little man and I headed down to the beautiful Priory Farm.

Located in South Nutfield, the farm is a perfect day out for anyone but especially families wanting to get out of the big smoke. You can grab some locally sourced lunch at the farms cafe then enjoy a beautiful walk along the discovery route while the kids run wild!

We had so much fun – Raphael loves being outside and it was great seeing him trying to keep up with the big kids! I got to chat with mamas along the walk and took a few photos along the way….

Can’t wait to pay the farm another visit especially over the summer months where the poppy and sunflower field will be in full bloom!

Thanks again to Mothers Meeting for another amazing day out!

Time in the sky

Had a fun little trip out with a friend and our baba’s to Greenwich and took a trip over the Thames on Emirates air line experience! 

We boarded on the Southside of the river at the Greenwich peninsula terminal. Cabins leave every few seconds so we were able to board straight away. Between the hours of 10am and 3pm the trips are extended by 10mins to allow you to check out the amazing views and with the weather finally starting to pick up on a clear day it is amazing!

The cabins can hold up to 10 people, we managed to fit 2 mama’s, 2 baba’s and 2 push chairs comfortably in one car and with the option of a non stop return trip we had enough time to get the baba’s out to check out the views too!

We really enjoyed our trip and I would say it is definitely worth a visit. It’s not that expensive and even though it is a bit off the beaten path, it’s a perfect morning or afternoon activity.

Here are a few photos taken by my photographer friend Frances Carlisle of our time in the sky….

pop up books

I was thrilled when my hubby gave me a pop up book for my birthday. Big Bang Pop by a French Author Philippe Ug is filled with vivid colours and beautiful 3d images. It takes you on a journey through the milky way telling you about the life’s of stars.

I remember my mom having a set of vintage pop up books as a kid. I have really vivd memories of them and showing Big Bang Pop to Raphael reminded me of how magical I thought those books were so I thought I would feature a few on here which I think would make amazing Christmas gifts!

For Mama…

Another Philippe Ug, Drôle d’oiseau (Funny Bird) tells the story of a little bird, from an egg to flying the nest as a magnificent bird to discover the world!

For baba….

A box of bugs. 4 concept pop up books by David A Carter

For mama & baba….

White Noise by David A Carter is a pop up book for all ages where the paper structures create a sound as they open!

Fingers crossed santa brings me Drôle d’oiseau for Christmas!
