Disney On Ice - Dream Big Coming To UK This Autumn

When I heard about that Disney On Ice was returning this Autumn with a new show I was eager to see how it could top the show we saw a few years ago. When I saw the announcement that Dream Big will feature Moana, Frozen, Beauty and The Beast, Tangled, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin I was so excited, what a fantastic bunch of characters.

We are so excited about CBBC Summer Social coming to Liverpool this year. We have been to something very similar in the South a few years ago and it was amazing. This time it is our hometown and we cannot wait to attend.

Cocktail Making Masterclass at Prezzo

You may have read my post recently about us sampling the new Summer Set Menu at Prezzo. We had lots of delicious food and drinks and while we were there we had the chance to take part in a Cocktail Making Masterclass. John and I have never done anything like this before and as the cocktails were going to have Peroni in John was very excited to make them.

Breakfast With Santa at Alton Towers Hotel


One of our favourite Christmas traditions is visiting Alton Towers each year for Santa’s Sleepover. This is a tradition that we have enjoyed for about 11 years now and over those years we have seen the special event change and evolve with new activities added each year. This year we enjoyed a breakfast with Santa for the first time.

Pumpkin Picking At Kenyon Hall Farm


Last week my social media was full with photographs of people Pumpkin Picking. It's something we have never done before so we decided to go on Saturday morning. I googled the best places to pick a pumpkin in the North West and lots of choices came up. I then researched a few that were local to us but we actually decided on Kenyon Hall Farm based on a friends recommendation. She went last year and said it was really good. I headed to the website to check out where it was and for those local it's by Warrington just off the M62. Saturday morning it was raining so I hoped not many people would want to go picking in the rain but I was wrong, it was so busy.

Scarefest At Alton Towers 2017


Last weekend we headed down towards Stoke for our October visit to Alton Towers to celebrate Scarefest. We have been going every year for as long as I can remember and each year it gets bigger and better. Now that we have little J we have to divide our time between the main park and CBeebies land however based on his no fear attitude when it comes to rides it wont be long before he will be wanting to get on the thrill rides!

A Trip To Blackpool With Virgin Experiences.

Blackpool is a place that whenever I hear the name it takes me back 30 years to when I was little and I would visit Blackpool on the train with my Mum and Dad. It used to seem so far, like it was a million miles away when the reality was we could have reached it in less than a hour by car. I think because both John and I have fond memories of visiting Blackpool we have tried to visit quite a few times a year with the boys. You may have read a few months ago we visited Blackpool Sealife and last weekend we were back at the seaside resort thanks to Virgin Experiences. We were invited to choose an experience and we all agreed that a short break to Blackpool would be a perfect way to end the Summer.

Capital FM Summertime Ball 2016



This post has been sitting in my drafts since the Summer and I'm not sure why I didn't publish it. As time went on I didn't feel the time was right to post about something we did months ago. As the tickets for this years Summertime Ball will be going on sale shortly I thought it would be perfect to share on day now for those who are thinking of attending this year.

 Now that big J is growing up buying for his birthday isn't as easy as it was. We asked him what he would like and even he couldn't think of anything. After listening to the radio one morning he heard about the Capital FM Summertime Ball so he asked us for tickets for his birthday.

Steps Are Back - #20YearsOfSteps

Credit Steps

Well today when I got home and started to browse through Facebook I did not expect to see this  news trending - STEPS ARE BACK. Woohoo I am so excited. I have been a very loyal fan for 20 years so I am delighted that not only are they back with a new album but a tour too. I have seen Steps live many times and obviously their music is poptastic but they were born to perform on stage, their live shows are amazing. #20YearsOfSteps here we come.

Jamie Raven Live 2017


On Tuesday Daddy and I headed to Southport to see Jamie Raven. For those that don't know who he is, Jamie came runner up in the 2015 Britain's Got Talent final. He narrowly lost out to Jules and Matisse by just 2 per cent of the vote. We remembered his performances and loved watching him so we were quite excited to see his live show. We have been to a few magic and illusion shows and whilst they have been okay we have always left the theatre feeling quite underwhelmed. Hopefully Jamie would amaze us and we would be heading home with confused looks on our faces and wondering "How on earth did he do that?'

Our New Years Eve


This is a little late, but better late than never I suppose. We ended 2016 with a visit to the Liverpool Ice Festival. It's something we did a few years ago and we thought it would be nice to do it again. Both Daddy and I aren't keen on New Years Eve so a nice day out was perfect.

Saturday Morning Visit To Mini Moose Land At Chill Factore


Having two boys with a large age gap it can be difficult to plan days out that they both will enjoy. It has been a chore in the past as you want them to both have a great time but luckily for us we have one attraction close by that they both love. You may have seen my previous posts on Chill Factore and how much the boys enjoy visiting. The Chill Factore is an indoor ski and snowboarding centre and is home to the UK's longest indoor ski slope. They also have a fabulous Arctic Playground just for under 4's called Mini Moose Land which is perfect for little J. We were invited to pop along recently and have 1 hour of Mini Moose Land fun.

Swim To The Top Of The Class


I have always said that both boys are water babies. They love being in the water and not only do they enjoy having fun splashing around but they both love swimming. From when big J was born he was always at our local swimming pool. Daddy would take big J every week and it was 'their' time together. then big J started to have swimming lessons and it boosted his confidence in the water. I think swimming lessons are a must for every child as it is a life skill that is so important. Little J also enjoys going to the pool although he only goes once every six weeks or so, something we definitely want to change. On their last visit to the pool Daddy actually said little J could start have swimming lessons now as he is ready.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang At Birmingham Hippodrome


A few weeks ago Daddy and I travelled to Birmingham to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Birmingham Hippodrome. I absolutely loved the film when I was younger, I would watch it everyday after school. I knew all the words and would sing along at the top of my voice. We went to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang years ago and loved it but the actual reason for our visit this time was that I am a huge Carrie Hope Fletcher fan.

Num Noms at Bella Italia


I have mentioned Num Noms before on my blog but if you haven't heard of them Nums are adorable, scented, squishy characters with tons of personality. Noms are motorized mischievous characters that move around, they're scented too. Stack the Nums on top of the Noms to make over 1,000 sweet scented combinations. We were recently invited to an event at our local Bella Italia to celebrate the launch of series 2 of Num Noms.

Beat Bugs Netflix Event


When we were asked to be a member of the Netflix Stream Team we were all so excited. We had heard of Netflix before but had never tried it, now it's used every day. We all have our different profiles set up which suggests programmes and films based on what we like. As it is the Summer holidays most of the day we are on little J's profile watching Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol and Beat Bugs. As a member of the Stream Team we were invited to a Netflix event in London and it was amazing.

Our Morning At Mattel Play Liverpool

A few weeks ago we popped along to Mattel Play Liverpool for the first time. I'm not sure who was more excited about visiting, Little J or Me. I had read lots about the new interactive play centre and it was all positive. I was a little unsure about visiting at the weekend as I was worried it would be overcrowded so we headed down to the Albert Dock quite early on a Saturday morning.

Disney On Ice Silver Anniversary Celebration Review

We were really excited about seeing Disney On Ice Silver Silver Anniversary especially after watching the Worlds Of Enchantment show in Manchester last year. This time it was in the Liverpool Echo Arena so a lot closer to home but we had tickets to an evening show so I wasn't sure little J would stay awake.

A Day Out In Liverpool #EvolvingCities

I probably don't have to tell you what an amazing city Liverpool is because I'm sure you will already know just how much history the city has. Not only do we have an incredible musical background and two premier league football clubs, we were also named Capital of Culture 2008 and our riverfront was named World Heritage site 2004. Our city has truly evolved over the years and I do feel blessed to live in Liverpool. Travelodge have created a guide to show you just how much Liverpool has changed over the years
