Organising a christening

There are many reasons why a parent might decide to have a christening for their child. Perhaps they are christian and want their child to be raised as a christian too. Maybe they find the notion of being part of the christian community appealing and want to welcome Christianity and the Church into their family’s life. Or the motivation to have a christening for their child is not focused on faith rather it is because they want their child to be blessed to celebrate and show thanks for their safe arrival into the world.

Planning for the future: the tasks that most of us don't like to think about

It might be something of a morbid topic - but it's one that we will all come across at some point in later life. While enjoying the time with our children might be the priority now, we shouldn't forget the occasions where things might start to slow down and provisions have to be made.

It's most definitely the stage of life that most of us don't like to think about. Nevertheless, those of us who do take the time to think about some of the more practical areas of life, do tend to make things a lot easier for family members down the line.

Accessible days out in Pembrokeshire plus family day out voucher giveaway

Like most families we love family days out. They are fun, allow us to make memories together and enjoy quality time together as a family. Days out with the kids are even more special when our extended family join us especially since we live quite a few miles from them. Because of the distance between us family days out with extended family are even more precious and important to us. As days out with our extended family are few and far between due to the miles between us, it is vital that the places we visit are appealing and suitable for the whole family so that the day is an enjoyable success.

With many members of our extended family suffering from varying mobility issues - my mum has fibromyalgia, cervical neck damage, spinal disc degeneration and arthritis, my Dadcu (grandad) suffers from various mobility issues due to old age and hip issues, and my father-in-law is in a wheelchair - we are very aware of how whether a place is accessible and mobility friendly can make or break a family day out.
