Today we’ve done something quite special: We’ve travelled to the Moon! Well, okay maybe not the actual Moon in outer space, but about as close as you can get. We went to see the Museum of the Moon, which is currently exhibiting at Rochester Cathedral, until Wednesday 4 March. The Museum of the Moon is … More Museum Of The Moon At Rochester Cathedral!
The event that I’m going to tell you about in this post happened the other week, but at the time felt too overwhelmed to write about it, and then when I tried I found it tricky to put it into words. I’m not sure I’ll be entirely successful now either, but I’m giving it a … More My nonverbal 12 year old autistic child talked to me about his drawing!
In December last year (2019), we visited Drusillas Park for the first time. We’d heard about it shortly after moving to south east England three years ago, but for various reasons (including cost, as well as it’s being a bit of a journey for us to get there) we hadn’t managed to visit the place … More Visiting Drusillas Park in Wintertime

I’m sure the castle and gardens are amazing at any time of the year, but now during the Christmas period … More Days Out In The South East: Christmas Time At Hever Castle!
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I haven’t been posting very much here during November. I posted about this on our social media about a week ago, but it’s just as relevant for here on the blog, so I feel I should write about it here as well. Plus this also gives me an … More Getting The Balance Right…?

There’s also a Sheffield Park House, situated at the edge of the property, but that’s still privetely owned and not open to the public.

Pevensey is a village in East Sussex, near the coast, just a few miles north-east of Eastbourne. It’s main claim to fame in English history, is that it was the site for William the Conqueror’s landing in 1066. But Pevensey Castle’s history reaches much further back, to Roman times, and it was in military use … More Days Out In The South East: Pevensey Castle
