What Do You Really Want?

I want to cry! I really do. I am forty odd years old and I have yet to find my calling in life. I don’t know what I want, what I need, where I have to go or what I wish to be.

What Do You Really Want?

There are days when I want to go back to being a scientist. Some days, I want to make it as an author or change tack and be a medical writer. Then there are days when I have visions of owning my own business. I am so inconsistent with my goals, my dreams, my passion, that I have no idea where to begin, what to do to, or where to go with any of this.

Are You an Irregularly Regular Blogger?

Apologies to those of you who expect me to write and wait in anticipation for my next post.

I haven’t been very regular with my blog. I could easily cite lack of time as a legitimate excuse. It would be a very good excuse, especially since I have taken up cycling as a serious pastime.

But there is more to it than that.

Brand New Kazoops Airs on CBeebies

My 6 year old and I watched the brand new episode of Kazoops together, and J very succinctly summed it up with, “Kazoops is fun to watch because it helps your imagination get bigger.”

5 Golf Myths Busted!

Golf is not something I naturally think of when it comes to pursuing a sport. I succumb to the cliché that golf is but a hobby.

Online Golf is a website dedicated to all things golf. They have taken it upon themselves to introduce this often overlooked sport to youngsters.

Now the only golf I have ever played is crazy golf. But I am not averse to giving something new a try. With a bit of encouragement, neither is my son. He plays cricket and has tried hockey, so why not golf? We decided to support this venture and agreed to be part of an indoor golfing event. 

5 Golf Myths Busted!

The pros were on hand to help us as we made our way around the 6-hole indoor golf course and tried to harness our latent golfing talent. The aim was to introduce families to golf and basic golfing techniques, and bust some golf myths along the way.

Six Things To Do in Tenerife When You Are Six

Tenerife has been on our list of places to visit ever since a friend went on holiday there a couple of years ago. Not content with taking her word for it, we have been doing our own research into why Tenerife is perfect for a family holiday. And what could be better than to base our expeditions out of a beautiful private villa in Tenerife.

Learning need never be boring. Family travel is a great opportunity to widen horizons and broaden understanding, age notwithstanding. So our top six things to do when you are six feature a mix of entertaining and educational attractions. A balance of natural wonders, architectural gems and fun days out that aim to capture the essence of Tenerife.

Lego Ninjago at Legoland Discovery Centre, Manchester

Isn’t it amazing how clued up children are when it comes to contemporary play characters? I had no idea what Ninjago was, but my nearly 6 year old son had this twinkle in his eye at the mere mention of the possibility of a family day out involving Lego Ninjago. I have obviously underestimated the role of peers in my child’s quest for knowledge!

So it was that J gave us a discourse on all things Lego Ninjago as we headed to the Legoland Discovery Centre to be part of the launch of their new Lego Ninjago City Adventure play area.
