Durdle Door with a dog

Durdle Door with a dog

Last weekend we jumped in the car with Beau and decided to go the beach. On beautiful sunny days we have the luxury of being only half an hour from a stunning beach. Except, life with a dog means you need to do a little more research when making a day trip. Our favourite beach doesn't allow dogs during specific months, so a quick Google and we were soon heading to Durdle Door with a dog and a very excited boy. Our journey to Durdle Door took us across the Poole chain link…continue reading →
Weymouth is always welcoming

Weymouth is always welcoming

The other week my mum text me and said they were off geocaching near Weymouth and asked if we'd like to join them on the beach for fish and chips after I finished work. We can't pass up a trip to the beach, especially since our beach visit commitment, on our summer life list. Plus we don't live too far away from Weymouth and M loves it when he gets to see his Nanna and Grandpa. Weymouth is a place we both have fond memories of from our childhood and it's  nice to…continue reading →
Best View in Dorset

Best View in Dorset

On the A35 between Bridport and Charmouth West Dorset is a little farm shop with possibly the best view in Dorset.

It's become a bit of a tradition to take a picture when we stop. I could see this view every week…continue reading →
Christmas at the Tank Museum

Christmas at the Tank Museum

Last year when M was very small and wrapped up in his sling, we took him to celebrate Christmas at the Tank Museum. We were very tired mummies and had a baby that had no idea what was going on around him. So this year we had higher expectations when my mum asked us to go with her to see Santa arrive on a tank. Apart from some confusion with the staff when Santa arrived outside the Museum, everything else was well planned and full of festive cheer. Monkey's Nanna treated him to…continue reading →
Our House is our Home….

Our House is our Home….

One of the most common questions we’ve been asked by friends since we announced that there was a little miracle growing inside my wife was, “When are you going to move?”. This question is guaranteed to get me reaching for my soap box as I try to justify our decision not to move just because we are increasing our household from two to two and a barely three. We have lived in our home for 2 years this year and I couldn’t be happier with it. It's a one bedroom flat with enough…continue reading →
