Family Life – June 2019

I don’t think I have experienced a month with such highs and lows as this month! It started off extremely stressfully. After selling our house in April, we still didn’t have a moving date! We knew it would be soon, actually we hoped it would have happened already. The move date kept getting pushed back and back until the end of the month, so it ended up being a month of goodbyes.

The Lost Gardens Of Heligan, Cornwall

We first discovered The Lost Gardens of Heligan for ourselves on our first trip to Cornwall 9 years ago. Back then our oldest three children were quite young, and the Gardens have changed a bit since then (of course! That’s the nature of gardens). We found that The Gardens had a lot more to offer the children this time around – especially with the improvements they have made in The Jungle area

Dover Castle, Kent

As we were in Kent during half term visiting Grandparents, we decided that we would try to take the children to Dover Castle because neither Ben or I had been before and it’s fun to go somewhere new. We were hoping to combine the visit with a walk along the White Cliffs, but although we were experiencing an unusually warm February, the coast was covered in fog.
