Our Stay At Simgill Farm Cottages

Edit this post
We have just returned from a lovely family weekend break to the Lake District. We love visiting the Lakes and have previously stayed in a little Bed and Breakfast, Caravan Park or Hotel. This break was a little different as there were 14 of us in total so we needed to book somewhere big enough for us all. After a lot of searching the internet my brother in law found Simgill Farm. It's described as luxury self catering accommodation with properties that sleep up to 18 people.

Our Summer Days, Day 8 - Thorpe Park

Edit this post

I have mentioned it before on our blog that we are Merlin Pass Holders, and have been for as long as I can remember. Although we don't venture down South to the attractions very often we think it is still excellent value for money just for the amount of times we go to Alton Towers each year. This year we said that we would try and make an effort to go to Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures as we have never been before. Last weekend we finally made it down South and visited Thorpe Park and Legoland.

Swim To The Top Of The Class

Edit this post

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.

The View From The Shard

Edit this post

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

Edit this post
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.

We Took The Frankie And Benny's Challenge

Edit this post
We love a good challenge and last week when we were asked to take part in one involving Frankie and Benny's we happily accepted. We love Frankie and Benny's, it's a place we go to for a special treat or to celebrate a special occasion. The reason for this is I have always thought of it to be quite expensive so it's somewhere we wouldn't visit often. When we were asked to dine at Frankie and Benny's for breakfast, lunch and dinner (not all on the same day) on a budget I honestly didn't think it would be possible but I was wrong.

Our New Year Bucket List

Edit this post
I hadn't thought about writing a bucket list before as I thought a bucket list was things you wanted to do before you die. However, I have noticed that some people have seasonal bucket lists on their blogs. They write down all of the things they want to do in the following three months. We have had a little think and there are a few things we want to do so I've decided to write them down.

The Sun Shines On Liverpool

Edit this post
What a lovely bright and sunny weekend we had here in Liverpool. It was so nice to wake up with the sun shining through the curtains. We made the most of the glorious weather and went to Otterspool Prom and The Festival Gardens.
