It's always worth searching listing sites and local Facebook groups for free days out on Bank Holidays. They are a brilliant source of free days out - London seems to have a free festival or concert every weekend - and we attended Canalway Cavalcade in Little Venice, a really brilliant one, on Bank Holiday Monday.… Continue reading London’s Free Family Days Out: Canalway Cavalcade In Little Venice
Hello Monday, and hello spring! It looks like the weather is finally improving, so here are my three suggestions for the upcoming weekend in Ealing... We Love Cheese!

Chomeuse… Continue reading Sunshine Blogger Award
If you follow me on Twitter you will have seen some photos on my Saturday afternoon in The Dodo Micropub, Hanwell. Oh yes! I was out, on my own (well, with a friend) drinking beer. For shame! Call the soft focus Facebook quote brigade quickly, they need to strip me of some #realmum and #blessed… Continue reading Me Time: The Dodo Micropub Hanwell
Ealing Broadway has a host of places to enjoy a cheeky cuppa or up your caffeine. As well as all the usual chains (indeed two of most!) there are a host of small independent shops to choose from.
