Bournemouth Mini Break

Last weekend Rob, Dylan and I went on our first mini break together as a threesome. We stayed in a questionable hotel (more on that soon) for one night in Bournemouth, Dorset. It was my treat to Rob as a joint B.day and fathers day present, and my last big spending blow out before my…

Last Weekend

Last weekend was a good one. It was my Mums 60th birthday so my Dad had organised a surprise stay for her in a hotel in Sandbanks, Bournemouth with Rob and I, my sister, her husband and the boys and the parents besties, a lovely couple who we have all known for years. It involved a lot of…

Devon 2015

Towards the end of August Rob and I enjoyed our annual family holiday. We stayed in a lovely house in Croyde Bay, Devon with my parents, my sister, her husband and the three nephews. Then afterwards, Rob and I travelled on to Cornwall to visit our friends who moved down there a couple of years ago, and…

Another Quick Camping Trip

The other day I thought about setting up a new blog chronicling my cycling adventures. The perfect domain name for me – Helonwheels is available (please no one buy it now that I have mentioned it!) But then I remembered that writing one blog is a lot of effort, let alone two! I would totally be up for reading…

More Camping Good Times!

It seems that my camping trips are like buses. Nothing, then they all come along at once! Just over a week ago Rob and I did a little tour in the van, camping first at Ivinghoe in Bedfordshire, then traveling on to Truck Festival in Oxfordshire. For the third year in a row, I bought Rob…

A Quick Camp Out At Lydd

Rob and I are both off work this week. I hope its an opportunity to catch up on my blogging, but its Thursday already (whaaaat!), and is a really busy week for both of us as we are frantically decorating before we get the new flooring fitted next week, and generally trying (and failing) to keep the…

New Forest 2015

Rob and I have just got back from a short mid week break to the New Forest! We had been itching to get away somewhere on holiday ever since the new year, and discussed many options of were and when to go. We did consider a city break in Europe, and we got very close to booking…

Camping At Kingsdown, Nr Deal

At long last I had a weekend off, so Rob and I managed a quickie. Thats a quick local camping trip for one night only. In case you were wondering! We headed down to a cute looking campsite with sea views in Kingsdown near Deal in Kent. What can I say really, it was lovely and we had a…

Isle of Wight 2014

This time last week I was on holiday on the Isle of Wight. Le sigh, it all seems so long ago. As ever the island was green, lush, quaint, old fashioned and cute. The weather not so. It pretty much rained everyday. Still, we did not let the weather stop us from having fun. Some of…
