We were on holiday in the States recently and stayed in San Jose for a few weeks, visiting friends. As we tried to combine quality indoor time (hiding from the heat) and lots of outdoor fun, we came across the Children’s Discovery Museum in San Jose. If you’re ever around and have a small child to entertain, don’t hesitate to …

Legoland Windsor Visit – Day Out With A Toddler

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com47 Comments

We’ve been planning the visit to Legoland for ages, but we thought that Bobcat might be just too young being under three. Both mummy and daddy are hardcore Lego fans (even granddad!) so we also really looked forward to the day since we we booked the tickets. Upon arrival, at 10 am on a Saturday morning, term time, we were …

Review: Term Footwear Wellies

In Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Wellies are essential clothing items when you’re a young child. All that outdoorsy fun you don’t want to miss because of bad weather. In fact, that’s part of the fun. One word: PUDDLES. Have you met a kid who doesn’t find puddles the most exciting thing in the world? No, me neither. Bobcat is definitely a huge fan of them. Loves …

Family Dayout Series: Drusillas Park East Sussex Review

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Drusillas Park is located in East Sussex, short drive from the lovely coast. Our first time visit left me with ambivalent feelings. Some parts of it are really nice, but others are just run-down or just random. It has no apparent concept either: bit of a mix of everything, but not too original or exciting. The park tries really hard though: …

Hotel Review: Meon Valley Marriott Hotel And Country Club

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

We picked Meon Valley Marriott Hotel And Country Club for five nights in August as a mini-holiday near home. As we checked the reviews on Tripadvisor it was clear that many families chose the hotel for being “children friendly“. We thought, the rooms are big, there’s golf for daddy and beauty treatments for mummy, small children can use the swimming pool, so …

Best BBQ Sauce With Orange

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

There’s still a few summer days left, let’s try to make the most of it! I love barbecues on a summer day and who doesn’t? It doesn’t have to be something for vegetarians to avoid.

Family Ibiza Holiday With Children – That’s What We Call Luxury!

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Ibiza is forever in my heart since I lived there for a few years. Forget about the notorious party island fame, you can take children and they will love there! The sandy beaches are very safe for children: they are clean, the water is shallow and warm, and most of them has at least one small beach bar (chiringuito) serving …

Rainbow Pasta Salad With Greek Yogurt Dressing

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

We had some of my husband’s male friends coming over the other day for a quick lunch before watching football. And what a good wife am I? I prepared roast chicken for them with greek salad, but then I thought, I should probably give them another – more substantial – side dish option before heading to the LIBRARY. This salad …

Maternity Wear Wish List Spring/Summer 2016

In Style by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Yay! Spring is on it’s way! Or at least that’s what I like to think in mid January, counting the weeks till March. And for pregnant mummies it will make life a little easier: dressing without all those thick layers which makes you look and feel even more huge. I still like to look good and embrace my changing figure …
