Weasel Can Tweet

If you’d like more deep thoughts and contemplation on the meaning of life, go follow the Dalai Lama. If you want more of the same – baking for mummy to get over the all bodily fluids she has to deal with, diva-like behaviour of 2 toddlers and the daily life of being a failed yummy […]

Jolly Harbour Antigua with a Toddler

You get some very strange looks bathing a baby in an inflatable duck on the back of a yacht in Jolly Harbour. Not disapproving, more just surprised. You don’t see a whole lot of kids hanging around, let alone ankle biters. Although Antigua seems to be limited for marinas that provide water and electricity hook […]

Olympic Sailing with a Toddler – An Awesome Day Out

One thing you don’t have to worry about at the Olympic sailing events down in Weymouth & Portland is being the only one with a small person with you. In fact, I think the non-parents were probably outnumbered 3 to 1 at least. And it’s pretty much the ideal event for energetic kids. Why? – […]

Norfolk Broads in Winter

Zogg Trainer Seat

Realising that it’s a damn hard workout carrying a kid around in the swimming pool after a few visits and starting to listen to that tiny voice that tells you maybe it’s not entirely safe to chat away to friends in a wave pool without some kind of safety device on your kid, we decided […]
