Festivals, not something that's been on the top of people's to do list over the last 18 months but as normality gets ever closer and we begin to emerge from a time of lockdowns and restrictions we finally get the chance to stand in a field of strangers, sharing portaloos and common interests. Joyous. Gloworm Festival is the UK's absolute best family orientated festival. It's a heady mix of Cbeebies characters, Playmobil raves, glitter face paints, arts and crafts and circus tricks. Whatever your little ones are into they'll find something to enjoy at Gloworm.

Living Arrows | Paw Patrol Movie

Iris loves Paw Patrol. Most kids have phases where they enjoy different characters but Paw Patrol seems to have outlived all previous phases and has been going strong for over a year now. Her birthday party Paw Patrol themed, her presents were all Paw Patrol based and she's asked for a Paw Patrol bedroom when her room gets painted next month so what better way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon than a trip to our local cinema to see the movie.

Living Arrows | Getting Dressed Up

Plus a Halloween tutu that is purple, orange and black. On the floor are some green Ikea Plufsig mats with dressing up/ fancy dress items such as animal masks, rabbit ear. oversized sunglasses and beards strewn across the mats.

Well I completely overestimated my ability to keep a regular blog schedule throughout the summer holidays! We packed so much into the holidays, we had a trip to London, days out at Sundown Adventureland, sleepovers at Grandmas and trips to the seaside. It was fun but actually kind of exhausting, I'm very glad to be back to the daily grind. 

Days Out | Graves Park, Sheffield

Graves Park was our first destination on our mission to complete the Sheffield Bear Hunt. The bear hunt is a charity event in which individually designed bears are placed around the city. You can sign up on the website to track your progress or collect a paper trail map from various places. We chose Graves Park as our first stop as it has so much more to offer than just bears.

Accommodation | Skippers Rest Apartment, Scarborough

The image shows the living are with grey gloss fitted kitchen and black velvet sofa bed with bright coloured cushions. The right of the image is a title that reads 'Travel, Skippers Rest, North Marine Road, Scarborough YO11 7HZ,'

Skipper's Rest is a one bedroom apartment in the North Bay area of Scarborough. It's located close to Peasholm Park and The Open Air Theatre. It's set one street back from the seafront and has access to the beach via the main road with pavement or via coastal cliff path. The cliff path has beautiful views and is easy on the way down but a bit tough on the legs on the way back up!

Living Arrows | DRFC

It's back! The football season has official returned. I'm not a fan of football and have only really attended matches under duress but Daddy has been a lifelong fan of  Doncaster Rovers so it kind of feels like our year starts when the football does.
