Flying With Kids: What I've Packed In Their Hand Luggage


On Tuesday morning we will be flying out to Berlin for the week for a work collaboration which I will be sharing more on later in the week. I have never flown with both of the kids before, but luckily this is only a short flight so should be some practice before a long haul flight to the Caribbean in a few months. 

As you can expect with two children you may need to pack a lot to entertain and keep them happy for the duration of the journey. As Harry is under two he isn't allocated any hand luggage so I decided to buy a bigger case for both of them to share. To some it may seem like I've packed a lot but the majority of these will also be used out there and on the way back too. The way I see it is you can never pack too much. Kids get bored easily so quickly switch to something new within 10-20 minutes. 

Travelling With Kids - My Top Tips & Hacks


Travelling with children needn't be stressful, if you plan ahead and are organised you should have a relatively stress free holiday. We have two holidays coming up at the end of this year one a short break next week and the other a two week all inclusive holiday in the Caribbean in November. Amelia has been abroad a number of times when she was younger however it will be Harry's first time and we haven't flown since Amelia was around 20 months old so of course she won't remember it.

Back To School With Matalan


I can't believe how fast the summer holidays have gone by, Amelia will be starting reception class in just two weeks time, as she was in the nursery class at the school last year she has worn a fair share of uniform brands but we've never tried the range from Matalan. So when we were asked whether we would like to try out their school uniform range I was eager to see whether the quality was as good as others we have tried in the past.

A Sunday Train Ride {The Ordinary Moments}



The weather here has been pretty miserable lately, but that's nothing new as we live in North Wales. We had a day stuck in the house yesterday so I really wanted to take the kids out and do something to make the most of the time we have together before Amelia starts back at school. I had been wanting to take the kids on the Llanberis Lake Railway for a while now but thought I'd wait until Harry was a bit older and I think he was just at the right age. 

SIBLINGS | AUGUST


The summer holidays seem to have flown by this year and with just over two weeks to go until Amelia starts back at school I'm hoping to make the most of the days we have together when I'm not working or when the kids are with their dad. The weather has been pretty awful again this month, lets be honest... I don't think we're going to get a summer at all but isn't that what we go abroad for? I have tried to get out as often as we can whether it just be for a short walk in the local forest, around the lake or to the park but I do have a few days out planned before school starts next month starting with a ride on the local steam train tomorrow.
