I’ve had my Olympus Pen E-PL7 for nearly two years now. You can read my reviews here and here. When I first got it, the plan was to carry on using my Nikon D3000 and use the Olympus Pen for days out or whenever I didn’t want to carry the Nikon with me.  But the Olympus is so light and compact that I’ve very rarely used the Nikon since.

As a family we try to make the most of any nice, sunny weekends and we always head to the seaside. One of our favourite places to visit in the UK is Broadstairs. With fine, beautiful sand, clear water and a nice promenade it’s easy to see why it’s such a popular resort.

We visited Broadstairs last Sunday and even though it wasn’t a really sunny day the kids still wanted to go to the beach. Isn’t it amazing how kids never feel the cold?

I love Pizza Express. Fact. It’s one of our favourite restaurants to go to as a family and even my super fussy eater son loves their dough balls, but who doesn’t?

A couple of weeks ago I was invited alongside a few other bloggers to visit their newly refurbished High Holborn restaurant for a pizza party. A couple of glasses of prosecco and some nibbles and we were all ready to give pizza making a go.

Did you know that this week is National Picnic Week? And it couldn’t have been a better week for picnics, with the temperatures reaching  the 30’s and the sun shining.

With the weather being super hot we have been coming home in the evenings and enjoying a splash in the paddling pool – me included- and a bit of a picnic in the garden. Our routine has been out of the window, but hey, the sun doesn’t shine in London very often so we’ve been making the most of it.

Our holiday requirements have changed a lot since having children. Long gone are the days of long haul flights and exotic destinations; we are now embracing all inclusive and child friendly places instead. Fuerteventura has been on our holiday wish list for a while, not just  for the great weather all year round but also for their white sandy beaches and super clear sea. After a lot of research we decided to stay at the H10 Tindaya which is part of the H10 Hotels group. The H10 Tindaya is in Costa Calma, in the Southern part of the island, about an hour / an hour and a half transfer from the airport.
