    Visiting New Zealand From America. PODCAST #18

    This week's podcast episode sees our first interview ever! We thought it would be fun for you to hear all about New Zealand from the eyes of a first-timer. Someone fresh off the boat and eager to explore.

    This week's lovely guest was Mark; an American tourist, who, having recently visited New Zealand for the first time this year was only too happy to share his first impressions of the country.

    How To Avoid Jet Lag & Get Some Shut Eye - PODCAST #17

    How To Avoid Jet Lag & Get Some Shut Eye - PODCAST #17

    Jet lag. Is there anything worse than finding yourself wide awake at 3 am with the dreaded jet lag? Pacing around the house like a deluded tiger, trying to decide whether it would be best to watch TV or clean the cutlery drawer out?

    In this week's podcast, Sonny and I talk about jet lag and a few proven ways in which you can avoid it.

    And no.

    My suggestion wasn't to get as drunk as possible on the plane thank you very much. I am far too sophisticated and grown-up for that.

    Fun Things To Do in Charleston, SC. PODCAST #16

    Fun Things To Do in Charleston, SC. PODCAST #16

    This week's podcast walks you through a budget-friendly and fun weekend with kids in Charleston, SC; one of the most popular and unique travel destinations in the world!

    Last year my husband and I took our two kids ( teenagers age 16 and 13) to Charleston, SC for a long weekend.

     But.

    There was a catch.

    As always we were on a budget (nothing new there then ) and I must admit, I was somewhat worried as to whether we'd be able to make our money stretch.

    Feeling Grateful. PODCAST #14

    Feeling Grateful. PODCAST #14

    This week's podcast is hosted by Liz and Sonny (first one of the year!) and is an up close and personal episode looking a what happened in our lives last year that left us feeling grateful (and being able to discuss the reasons why we are grateful).

    I think everyone should take stock (each day if possible) and take a look at what the things they have to be grateful for.

    Otherwise, you could turn into a moaning Minnie.

It’s a Drama Parenting Podcast

Brilliant! A true insight into teenage angst and hair tearing parents!!!

Just listened to your second podcast... even better than the first, you really bounce off each other!......Next!! Can’t wait!

Such clarity!! How you have explained this horrible experience that I’m sure we have all suffered at some stage in our life,is amazing!!!
I now no longer feel threatened or frightened by these sad bullies, merely sorry for them.
Well done... mum and son !!!
