Home: Would You Consider a Key Free Door?

On more than one occasion I've found myself clicking my car key fob towards our house door and expecting it to magically unlock (please tell me I'm not the only person who has done this?).  My kids find it very amusing, but when I'm struggling up the garden path with the weekly food shop (note to self:  start online food shopping) there have been many times I've wished this was actually possible.

Oakwood Theme Park Review and Competition

Last weekend we visited Oakwood, Wales' biggest theme park.  Oakwood was one of my favourite days out as a child (and teenager).  I will always remember the day that my parents surprised us kids and took us on a "mystery day out".  We were so excited when we spotted the famous "Oakwood flags" and realised that this was our destination for the day.  We've had many a happy day here as a family too.  Read on to find out all about our most recent day at Oakwood and for a chance to win a Family Ticket to Oakwood Theme Park of your own:

5 Crafts to Do Outdoors This Summer with Kids

In the Summer, we like to make the most of the nice weather and spend more time in the garden.  As well as playing games and eating picnics, we also like to do craft activities outdoors when we can - the fresh air is good for us and the house stays tidier when messy crafts are confined to the garden or in bad weather, outdoor rooms.  Outdoor rooms such as garages and garden houses are a godsend for messy rainy-day activities and can be made cosy in an instant with the help of an electrical heater, a few blankets, and a portable radio. If you’re in the market for a new outdoor building, just in time for summer then check out Lidget Compton’s range of concrete garages – the perfect summer addition to any garden! 

Here are five crafts that you can do outdoors this summer with children:
