We recently visited Paulton's Park to explore Peppa Pig World. Due to how far away the park is from where we live we decided to make the most of the journey and enjoy a full week away. We prefer to stay in apartments rather than hotels as having Coeliac disease can make it hard to eat out so having private catering facilities makes things easier and often cheaper. We choose Room and Roof Apartments for our stay. We stayed Monday to Friday in a one bedroom apartment. 

Days Out | Peppa Pig World

I recently gave Paulton's Park a glowing review as it's a great family theme park but as the Peppa Pig World is such a significant part of the park and likely to be one of the main reasons for people to visit I thought it deserved a stand alone review.  As I mentioned in my Paulton's Park review, Peppa Pig World is a hefty four hour drive away for us, factor in the copious amount of toilet trips that a four year old needs and you're looking at a full days travelling- so was it worth it?

Days Out | Paulton's Park

We live a four hour drive away from Paulton's Park, factor in travelling with a four year old and with toilet breaks, snack stops and leg stretches you're looking at a full day travelling. I needed this theme park to be exceptional, it had to be a roaring success or the stress of the journey wouldn't have been worth it. Thankfully Paulton's Park really pulled it out the bag. We had an absolutely amazing time at this all ages, family friendly theme park.

Accommodation | Nox Kensington

I am a big fan of a city break and I love to visit London. We live around 2 hours away via train and are fortunate to have a direct train route depart from the neighbouring town. Being from 'up North' means London accommodation prices always come as a shock. We look for something affordable, comfortable, clean and practical. We're not bothered by luxury when it comes to a city break as we spend most of the time out of the hotel exploring the local sights and as we travel by train we don't need to consider our parking options. I'd never heard of NOX hotels before but there are quite a few branches in the London area. We were travelling with Iris this time and had planned to spend the majority of our time around the museums so we chose to stay at the NOX Kensington branch. 

AD GIVEAWAY | IDentity Lingerie Silk Pyjamas

Pyjamas have always been a staple in my life. There's something incredibly comforting about being at home in your nightwear. For me clothing signifies that I'm ready to face my fears and head out into the outside world. Clothes are my armour. In contrast, pyjamas are my safe place. Loungewear and nightwear signifies taking a step back from the world and retreating to the comfort of my own home. Pyjama days are a necessity for me so when IDentity Lingerie asked me to review their luxurious range of Long Silk Pyjamas I jumped at the chance.

Living Arrows | Mummy Daughter Days

As you can see Iris is in that annoying pre-schooler phase of silly faces, made up words and constantly saying 'poo', 'bum' and 'sick'. She's well and truly in that 'gross out the grown ups' stage of her life and whilst it's annoying, it can on occasion be rather amusing.
