Our Visit to the Brighton Upside Down House

We ended the recent half term by going to the brand new Upside Down House in Brighton and the boys were not disappointed!

It had only been built two weeks before our visit and it's been put next to the Brighton i360 which makes a gorgeous photo when you get the right angle!

The makers of the Upside Down House have already built three in other locations around the UK. They want to give people the chance to capture images that are surreal and fun which you can definitely do in this house.

We had great fun exploring the two-storey house which has a bathroom, play room, bedroom, lounge and kitchen that you can explore.

Knockhatch Adventure Park Review and Giveaway

Our May half term was crammed full of fun activities. The first was Fort Fun which I've already posted about, and our next was Knockhatch Adventure Park in West Sussex. At the bottom of this review I am offering you a family ticket for four people to get into the park for free, and all entries are free and easy to do so feel free to share.

Knockhatch Adventure Park

Knockhatch is a great mix of indoor and outdoor activities including a petting farm, owl sanctuary, indoor play centres, adventure playgrounds and a boating lake. We didn't get a chance to do half of the activities as there's a good couple of days worth so we shall definitely be going back in the summer holidays!

Here are the bits we did manage to check out:

Review of Fort Fun, Eastbourne

This half term the boy and I were very lucky as we had company in the form of my partner and his two boys for the week.

We made the most of it and went to a few places, with the first being Fort Fun in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Fort Fun Eastbourne

I've never been before so I was probably as excited as the kids. Parking was easy and the location meant you could also spend time on the beach and at a beautiful park afterwards which was a bonus.

Activities

Fort Fun has a great mix of indoor and outdoor amusements, which was important that day as it was a typical, British hot, then cold, then hot day!

Giveaway: Pure Green Skinny Coffee Detox Program

Last weekend's beautifully warm Easter bank holiday gave me the kick up the bum I've needed to get bikini-bod ready for the fast-approaching summer, and I've even managed to organise a giveaway for you guys!

This week I've been on a mission to set up a plan so I can no longer make excuses as to why I'm still a chunk, and it's included trying a coffee that helps with the initial weight loss.

The Pure Green Skinny Coffee 28 Day Detox Program is easy (yay!) because all it involves is drinking one cup of coffee a day and all of the ingredients are natural which is a must for me.  Apparently it helps because it is an appetite suppressant, it reduces bloating, boosts metabolism and has antioxidants to hydrate the skin.

The Kindness of Strangers

I'm overwhelmed by the private messages, Instagram DMs and emails I've received over the past two days after people read my post about how I'm currently holding on to life as best I can.

The majority have been from people I've never met and it's amazing how many have said they have, or do, feel the way I currently do.

Some have emailed with concern and asked me to see a doctor. Don't worry, I know when the symptoms get bad enough to need some intervention and thankfully I'm not at that stage at the moment. I do check in with doctors and even did a few weeks ago, and I've tried various medications, but they all have nasty side effects that make them hard for me to take.

I'm taking it day by day and today has been a better day than the last two. I busied myself with gardening yesterday afternoon, which is a great distraction and workout at the same time.

I've refreshed my memory of all the techniques I spent most of 2017 learning that I shared with you last year, and have started listening to a guided meditation by the late, great Louise Hay which talks to your subconscious to encourage the negative thinking process to reduce.
