Our 2018 Bucket List – Update #1

Back at the start of the year (which was now four months ago… SERIOUSLY!!), we sat down together to come up with a bucket list of things we’d like to achieve in 2018. We tried to come up with a variety of things that would enhance our life together over the course of 12 months, and as with all goals, it’s important you reflect on them often. Which is why, today, a third of the way through the year we’re doing our first update. Go Away Once A Month We were determined to go away at least once a month this month and so far… so good! Well, except for March when only Helen went away on a Hen Do to… View Post

Our Photos From Walt Disney World 2018

If you didn’t already know we love Disney, everything Disney to be precise. This year we took our 3rd trip to Orlando to visit Walt Disney World. We were supposed to visit back in September but due to bad weather, the holiday got cancelled. So when we booked again we booked to visit in April. Here are some of our photos from our trip. While we have visited Walt Disney World before we never had to money or opportunity to get the Disney photo pass. This time was different as it was part of our ticket bundle and we really wanted to make the most of it. We decided to meet everyone we possibly could in the time we had and… View Post

We’re Going To BlogOnX

Helen and I are both excited to be attending BlogonX in exactly 14 days time (by which time we’ll be home from Orlando, Florida and have spent five nights in Iceland… we have A LOT going on right now) It’s my third time at the BlogOn conference (I think… it could be fourth!) and Helen’s second. However, it’s the first time we’ll be attending together to represent our multigenerational lifestyle blog The Harrison Household. We, therefore, figured it was pretty fitting to complete the BlogOnX linky which you can learn more about right here… Share a recent photo of yourself Here’s a quick snap of us meeting the one and only Ariel at Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World last week 🙂 What’s… View Post

Everything You Need To Know About Mardles Rocks

I’ve loved Geo-caching for as long as I can remember, but I can’t always imagine it’s that fun for kids (especially after one or two finds…) which is why when I heard about Mardles Rocks I knew it was going to be a hit! So, what is Mardles Rocks? The idea is very simple to Geocaching, just with added AR and a little more emphasis on design and creativity – which in my opinion is what makes it perfect for kids! In short, hide and or find decorated rocks and move or reside them for others to find. However, what makes Mardles Rocks unique from other decorated rocks is the ability to add AR (augmented reality) While you can find… View Post

Summer Travel Essentials

Have you booked your family summer holiday yet? Over the Easter holidays, many of us turn our attention to the next major school holiday, where we plan to spend two weeks of sun-drenched (at least one hopes!) bliss away from the stress of it all. However, holidaying with the family isn’t always easy and just one wrong turn can lead to a nightmare of illnesses that can easily ruin that relaxing holiday you’ve dreamed about so much. For that reason, I’ve put together a list of our travel essentials… Hübner’s Silicea Gastro Intestinal Gel We love trying new foods while travelling abroad, however with that can often come some side-effects. Hübner’s Silicea Gastro Intestinal Gel is designed to help soothe the symptoms… View Post

There is nothing that we love more than sleep, well maybe food but you see my point. I will be 100% honest without a good nights sleep I am such a moody person.
