Dad Diaries #2 – A Week Away at Burnham-on-Sea

This week we’ve been on a little family getaway to the Somerset sea town of Burnham-on-Sea at the Haven resort. If you follow me in all the usual places then you probably already knew that. But I wasn’t really that active this past week. I think every now and then it’s nice to scale back on social media and take a little bit of a break. And getting away gives you a great chance to do that. Almost Having an Absolute Nightmare I’ve made the odd parenting mistake in my time since having Isabelle – Rachel makes the point that…

Ways to Help With Postnatal Depression: Going Away Together

When I look back at my experience with postnatal depression, I know there was a lot of things that helped me on my way to recovery.

The Lynton Cottage Hotel I don’t think you can really go wrong with every room that the Lynton Cottage Hotel has to offer.

Exmoor Zoo Review – An Unimpressive Day Out with the Baby

Whilst we were on a little holiday to Lynton in Exmoor, we were looking for things to do, and thought we’d pay a visit to one of the local attractions: Exmoor Zoo. So this is, as you might expect, a little review of our short time at the zoo. I’ll be honest, before arriving at Exmoor Zoo, we didn’t really have any idea of what to expect. When we go away, we tend to just go with the flow. So this little ‘day out’ wasn’t exactly planned and more of a random endeavour. But it didn’t take us long to…
