Half Term Family Fun-At The RAF Museum in London

It’s almost half term!
You know what that means-bored kids within a day of being off and limited funds to fill each day with an activity.  You’re bound by the area you live in if you don’t drive, or if the public transport isn’t great,

Little do you know, there is a perfect day-out, just waiting for you!

The RAF Museum in London, is not only perfect for anyone of any age, it’s educational, it’s FREE and more accessible than personally , I even thought it was!

Your day at the museum
There are over 100 aircraft on the museums site, and these are all free to see.  There is no other museum or attraction in London that enables you to see so many historic and educational, aircraft and exhibitions, without paying an entrance fee!
Additionally, there are constantly free events and various educational exhibitions.  There is actually so much to do, you’re advised to plan to spend an entire day there, because of the amount there is to see!  How perfect it is to spend a full day here during the half term, for free!

You can drive to the museum site, which is just 10 minutes from Juntion 4 of the M1.  Currently however, there are are refurbishments being done to the car park.  This is not an issue at all though, because the ease to travelling in via train and tube, are just so easy!

The RAF Museum is only 30 minutes from Central London,  then either a 8 minute bus journey or 12 minute walk from Colindale tube.

If you don’t believe just how accessible the museum is, here’s a short video, featuring a  family, on their day out!

A Letter To My Son


My darling boy,
Yesterday mummy went to your last ever parents evening in year one. 
Before I left you said to me, “it’ll be a good one mummy, I’m always good!”

Now I know you’re a good boy, I know you’ve never been in trouble, and are consistent at working hard and achieving high. But I’m not delusional sweetheart. 

Grown ups will teach you from a young age, not to believe all you are told, and to take things small humans such as yourself say, with a very large pinch of salt. 

When your teacher sat me down, my tummy gave that familiar lurch of anxiety-what if this time something was different and we had a brand new obstacle to overcome.

My anxiety was for nothing. 

You didn’t disappoint and were true to your word.  
Your results for the end of term tests and subjects, not only blew me away but your teacher too. She told me how much she will miss you when you leave her class in two weeks. She told me how proud I should be of you. 

God I am proud of you!

I want to tell the world how proud I am of you, but proud as a standalone word isn’t enough.

  • I am thankful. Thankful to have you as my son, for the joy you bring me and the consistent happiness you fill our lives with. 
  • I am amazed.  Amazed how my little baby boy, has grown into such an amazing big boy, who is so clever, thoughtful and funny. 
  • I am grateful. Grateful for the gift of you from whichever divine being sent you to me. 
  • I am overwhelmed. Overwhelmed by the sheer love I have for you, for the amount you achieve and still have to achieve. For all I have taught you and have to teach you in the future.  
  • I AM PROUD. Proud to be your mummy, your friend, your comfort, your support and your absolute biggest fan. 


Not long ago you told me that one day you’ll be too big for cuddles on my lap and holding my hand. 

That day can wait-I’m not giving it up without a fight. 


                                                                   Keep making me proud my lovely. Keep being you. 

My baby always.
