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.

Holding On

Yes it's been a long time since I last posted.

A lot has happened since last summer and to be honest I've not felt the urge to disclose all for once in my life.

As the title says, I'm just holding on.

I don't feel all 'woe is me' and I certainly don't want sympathy from anybody.

I'm not one of those bloggers who wants to make everything seem happy and fun, so if things aren't going great, I tend not to beat around the bush, and if I don't feel like writing, then I just don't.

holding on


Through Instagram and Facebook I've posted many quotes that reflect the way I'm feeling, and I've had the odd little post about some of the sad times like my nan dying, and the happier times like meeting my partner.

But no matter what has been happening my crazy head is still very much crazy. I may have moved house and gone for that fresh start, but I cannot get a fresh start from my head.

This head eats away at me, my son and anybody that dares come near it.

The depression and anxiety are in constant battle with each other which in turn stops me wanting to do anything and I can lose hours inside my head without noticing that I've done it. It stops me achieving the goals I so often long to achieve;
