Last week we went on a little holiday to Dorset with my parents. The OH couldn't get down until Wednesday due to work but myself and Eliot enjoyed the whole five days! The break was actually booked through The Sun's £9.50 holidays deal after my parents collected tokens and kindly treated us to a little break. You had to pay extra for entertainment passes and for electricity but overall it was a pretty good deal. If you're able to get away during term time there are some fantastic places to choose from on the deal.
We stayed at Parkdean Sanford a caravan park with a good range of facilities. We arrived around 5pm, checked in and drove round to our caravan, which was a luxury one much to our surprise. Everywhere was immaculate, it had three bedrooms, two bathrooms, even a washing machine! It was just perfect for a little break away with all the home comforts which I personally think you need when you have a baby especially if you are sterilising bottles.
Once we were all ready we went into Poole for the day, had a wander round the quay and shops. My mum and I also enjoyed clotted cream scones, a must when your away by the sea!
Before leaving Parkdean for the day on Tuesday and Wednesday Eliot had lots of fun in the Crazy Caves (soft play) and it was amazing only sharing with one other baby, one time and then having it all to ourselves!
On Wednesday we went to Swanage and had stroll by the sea, fed seagulls and I repeatedly failed at winning anything out of the teddy grabber machines! The OH arrived in the afternoon.
Thursday was my favourite day, I was super excited to be taking Eliot to Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park, as he has recently become a bit of a Peppa Pig fan! Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side and it rained on and off the whole day but we still had lots of fun. It also meant the park wasn't that busy and we hardly had to queue for the rides.
There is also a large indoor play area which has different sections for different ages. It was simply fab, by far the best ever soft play area I've stepped into!
We arrived back in Peppa Pig World just in time for the last few rides, flying a helicopter, driving a car and sailing in Grandad Pigs boat.

Here's a little video of our hol, including a caravan nose and Peppa Pig World!

HELLO! Hope you've all had a good week :) On Friday we arrived home from our little Autumn break down in Dorset (post to follow) and I thought I'd share Eliot's outfits via vlog as I do love watching those types of video! Hope you enjoy!

We plan to visit Peppa Pig World on Thursday as Eliot has just recently got into it so I'm sure he'll love it! Although he has been a bit unwell since yesterday afternoon with a suspected sore throat. He had some calpol last night and seems a lot better this morning so hopefully it won't get any worse.
Typically the weather forecast isn't great, fingers crossed it's not too bad the whole of this week!
Hope you have a good week, whatever you're up to!
This week Organix are launching 'The Little Book Of Weaning'. They have been speaking to parents to find out their main concerns and worries when it come to weaning their babies. From that they have come up with their 'The Little Book Of Weaning'.
Weaning can be a daunting time, I remember buying bits and bobs in advance and thinking about whether to go down the puree or baby led weaning route. In the end we started with purees but moved on to more baby led weaning. I think you need to experiment with what works for your baby and family but only what you feel comfortable with.
The Little Book Of Weaning is available as a free download but I've teamed up with Organix to offer not one but three lucky readers a chance to win a hard copy! All you need to do is enter the rafflecopter.
