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.

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.

Our Family Fortnight 01/10/16

The past two weeks haven't been very exciting really. We haven't done as much as we would usually do but I think it's mainly been because of the weather, it's been rubbish here up North. We've had lots of wind and rain so it's been quite miserable. Anyway here is a look at the last fortnight.

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.

Our Family Fortnight - 17/09/16

This fortnight we have had to snap back in to the school routine quite quickly. It's back to early morning starts, school runs and homework. Before the new school term begun we did have the chance to enjoy one last weekend of the holidays, it was a wet wet one but we made the most of it. You may have already read that we headed to Blackpool for the first ever Slime Fest in the UK.

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.

Nickelodeon Slimefest 2016 - Blackpool

On a wet and windy Saturday we headed up the M6 to Blackpool for the 1st ever Uk Slimefest. I had googled Slimefest and it looked so much fun so I knew both big and little J would love it. The event was part of the Blackpool Illuminations Switch On.

Our Family Fortnight - 03/09/16

The last two weeks have been very busy. We have had a few events to go and they have all been so much fun. We love heading out on little adventures, seeing and trying new things. We do try and combine the events with other fun things too, so while we attended a Netflix event we also made the most of our time in London and headed to some of the major attractions.

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.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making Of Harry Potter Review

We were so lucky last week to visit the Warner Brothers Studio - The Making of Harry Potter tour. This was our second visit and we all seemed to enjoy it so much more this time. If you are a Harry Potter fan then this is definitely the place to visit.

The View From The Shard

A few months ago we received a Buyagift Smartbox. If you have heard of Buyagift you will know that they offer 100's of experiences throughout the UK. The Smartbox which is perfect for couples had over 500 experiences to choose from but after a lot of thought we decided to use our voucher on our recent visit to London.

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.

Bubbles World Of Play Review

We have been to New Brighton many times over the years and taken notice of the gradual improvement of the area from its run down seaside town times. One building we had noticed was ‘Bubbles’ and not giving it a second thought decided it was a good place to put a swimming pool. I was surprised when we received an invite to go to Bubbles and find we had been invited to an indoor play area rather than a pool. And what a play area it is. The biggest I have been to with either big or little J at any time in the past.

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

Official Gruffalo Teacher's Resource Pack

The Gruffalo is a story I was familiar with but hadn't actually read it through until last year when Little J got it as a gift. It has since become a favourite of Little J's and we read it most nights. He knows all the words and will often recite it even during the day. I am so gutted that we missed the Gruffalo trail in our local forest as I know he would have loved it. Some of the children I work with went on the Gruffalo trail and they loved it. To tie in with the trail there is a free downloadable Gruffalo's teachers pack available which I have recently been checking out.
