The London Dungeon with a 9yr old? | Merlin Annual Pass

Way back when our gurt big hulking teens were just little boys, we were on holiday camping in Yorkshire. We planned to spend a day exploring in York, and while there we had the grand plan to visit the York Dungeons – I mean, how scary could it really be? I had roughty-toughty-non-scarable boys, it’d be fun. Hmmmm. Within ten minutes (after ignoring the dubious warnings at the ticket desk) I had to beat a hasty retreat,...

Surprisingly Fab Clothing for Girls (from Nutmeg. Who knew?)

I know, Morrisons possibly isn’t the first place you’d think of taking your 9yr old daughter clothes shopping, is it? But think again, ladies. I’m a total convert! Take a look at these… This is the Navaho Blouse (to be honest I’m loving the entire Navaho range), and it’s available in ages 5-13yrs for just £7. The fabric is soft and flowing, and the embroidery detail at the top is gorgeous. The...

The Very Best Sheepskin Mule Slippers. Fact.

It’s that time of year again – the time of year when the hunt for the very best sheepskin mule slippers begins again. I’m not ashamed to say I’m a bit of a slipper freak. I don’t know if it’s a simple fact of getting older (and colder), or if I was just a late developer (in my youth I detested them; spent my time barefoot, only opting for socks on cold toes if absolutely necessary) But now I...

Graco Milestone Review – the only car seat you need to buy? #GenerationGraco

Being asked to do a Graco Milestone review really took me back a few years. Waaay back when I began this parenting malarky almost 18 years ago (EIGHTEEN YEARS! *cries*) car seats were honestly a baffling thing.  Of course, the Big News on the Parenting Street back then was the totes awesome ‘travel system’ idea – utterly groundbreaking, the car seat that could sit in the pram chassis so you didn’t have to...

What IS Shrek’s Adventure all about? | Merlin Annual Pass

It took a short while, but our group suddenly understood our flight attendant wasn’t actually a slightly odd member of staff, but rathr a properly funny character that I wish I’d engaged in conversation sooner. Seriously – fair play to anyone who can get a small group of baffled Brits hollering Shrektastic! at each other on a Thursday morning! We were visiting Merlin’s newest attraction, Shrek’s...

Weymouth Sea Life | #MerlinAnnualPass

This year we were seriously thrilled to be chosen by Merlin as an Annual Pass Ambassador. Sadly, this totally excellent news signalled the start of a catalogue of disastrous months – 2016 has not been kind to the LittleStuff house. Whooping Cough actually stole the first three months of the year; it was as much as I could do to drag through each day with the bare essentials, days out and fun stuff were simply off the agenda. Of...
