On a nice day there can be nothing better than a walk in a beautiful setting followed by a refreshing drink in a lovely country pub. Now, the Malvern Hills certainly are a beautiful setting, but at 1,394 ft above sea level at their highest point, are they really child friendly? Well as we found out with our … Continue reading Walking in the Malvern Hills with Kids
With two trips to France with our kids and pooch already under our belts this year, I wanted to give a run down of some fab dog and child friendly accommodation. From large family houses to chambre d'hôtes, B&Bs and Air BnBs - we've found some gems. Anywhere that happily welcomes a family with three … Continue reading 5 Child and Dog Friendly Places to Stay in France
It's obvious that getting ready to go out (out out, not just out to the park or to the shops) as a mum is a world away to the days sans kids (and a world away from the title picture of this post!), but a recent nightmarish getting ready experience has left me scarred - … Continue reading Getting Ready (to go out out) Like a Mum
So it looks like we may possibly have to remortgage our house, or get a loan ...or sell one of my kidneys. I hear you wondering what financial emergency has prompted such drastic measures. Perhaps our car has broken down and needs extensive, expensive repairs? Maybe we've had a massive leak at home which the … Continue reading Summer Dollardays
This is Buddy, he's our crazy 1yr old greyhound. We got him as a puppy from the Dogs Trust in January 2015 and a few weeks ago we ventured abroad to France with him for the first time. Apart from the fact that a dog sitter costs nearly as much as a holiday itself, we … Continue reading Travelling to France With a Dog.

Final Day It was Saturday and we were finally getting to spend a day sightseeing with Mr DaisLikeThese. Our plan was to get up and … Continue reading Our Adventures in New York City – Part 4
I can't believe I'm really saying this, but it's true - I miss Cbeebies! The boys have moved on; they're now into Scooby Doo, Tom and Jerry or football matches. Baby DaisLikeThese is too young to even care what is on TV. But me? I want to know what disasters Postman Pat is getting up … Continue reading Mourning the loss of CBeebies!

As well as the daily craziness of family life, we love to get out, travel, adventure and explore. Here I will document the highs and lows and pass on … Continue reading Welcome to Dais Like These!
When we are out and about we are often quite a rowdy bunch, well, it's inevitable what with the two boys, the baby, the dog and us. If we're eating out, the kids tend to go a bit feral and I end up spending the entire meal barking "sit down...stop fighting...get off the table...we don't need to … Continue reading Thank you to the strangers praising my children’s good behaviour!
So we'd had a successful journey from London to New York, followed by a fab first day, and the following few days didn't disappoint either. Day 3 We were up and out early again as Mr DaisLikeThese wanted to take a walk to check out the Husdon River edge before work. To be honest it was … Continue reading Our Adventures in New York City – Part 3
