Kidtropolis – Review

Get Dancing with Frubes


This post is an entry for BritMums’ #FrubesMoves Linky Challenge, sponsored by Frubes

The three R’s #BrightFuture

This post is an entry for BritMums #brightFuture Challenge, sponsored by Unilever.

CarFest South 2016

My favourite gig.. well, Festival! Carfest! These days, it’s not often that I get to rock out with my best friend, sipping drinks in the VIP area and dancing along to our favourite bands..but that’s exactly what happened at Carfest South this year. CarFest raises money for Children in Need, and combines fabulous car displays with marvellous music. It sells itself as a family festival, I can honestly say that we found it incredibly friendly, and there was lots to do!
