Days Out | Knowsley Safari Park

11 comments
We live under 20 minutes away from Knowsley Safari Park yet we haven't been for years which is such a shame. Last week we visited and I instantly remembered all the things I loved about the park and how much fun we have missed out on.

Saturday Morning Visit To Mini Moose Land At Chill Factore

8 comments

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.

Num Noms at Bella Italia

2 comments

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.

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

13 comments
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.

Christmas At Liverpool ONE

9 comments
We are so lucky to have Liverpool ONE so close to where we live. For years we had to venture further afield for shopping trips and meals out. Since Liverpool ONE arrived we have everything we could ask for. Now you can drop the kids off at school and you can get everything you need and more before you have to pick them up again. Here's how we recently went Christmas Shopping at Liverpool ONE.

Toby Carvery - Waterside Review

6 comments
The highlight of my week so far has to be our visit to the Toby Carvery - Waterside. It was a very cold, wet and blustery Monday evening and I really didn't want to head home after the school pick up to cook our dinner. I needed a day off from cooking and a nice Toby Carvery was just what I needed to warm me up.


We have quite a few Toby Carvery restaurants close by although we do tend to drive a little further to the Waterside. Daddy and I used to go for meals there before it was a Toby and it's always been a nice restaurant, even better now.

Our Day At Toytopia

14 comments
When we were asked to visit Toytopia I knew we would all love it. We love toys and having lots of different brands and toys under one roof is a our idea of heaven. With Christmas just a few months away it was a perfect chance for little J to try out some possible choices for his Christmas list. I have to say we have just got back from a fulfilled day - here is our day at Toytopia.

Visit Brewers Scare This Half Term

You will know by now that we are very fond of Brewers Fayre and we are lucky to have one quite close to home. Earlier this evening we enjoyed a lovely meal and if you are looking for somewhere to take the kids then I would definitely recommend a visit to Brewers Scare this half term. After its recent refurbishment little J loves the new Beano play area and with spooky activities planned for next week I'm sure we will be back for another visit.

Malama Beach Holiday Village, Cyprus

21 comments
Last September I won an all expenses trip to a commonwealth country by texting a special code that I found on a bottle of Rubicon. I do love my competitions and this has probably been my best win ever. The decision on where to go was a hard one. The budget was just under £5,000 and of course we would have been happy to pay more if needed as Daddy and I fancied Barbados. After weeks of thinking and checking out our options, In the end we decided to try Cyprus as we thought it would be more family friendly.

Family Snow Park Pass to Chill Factoré Giveaway

22 comments
Big J and I were so jealous when Daddy and little J got the chance to visit the new Mini Moose Adventure Playground recently at Chill Factoré. It looked so much fun and I know little J had a great time. We have been looking at all going together soon and I was checking out the website when I came across the Snow Park Pass.


The Snow Park Pass allows you to visit the Snow Park and experience a range of snow activities. They all look very exciting plus this Summer they have introduced a new Snow Luge.  The Snow Luge is built entirely from real snow and you can take on the twists and turns as you race to the bottom.

Mini Moose Arctic Adventure Playground at Chill Factore

11 comments
Last week we were invited to Mini Moose Arctic Adventure Playground at Chill Factore. The play area which is suitable for children under 4 is a new addition to the Snow Park. Big J and I would have loved to attend but unfortunately we couldn't so it was just Daddy and Little J. They look and sound like they had amazing time so I will hand over to Daddy to tell you all about it.




We arrived a little earlier than we expected as the m62 was really clear.  Little J hadn't eaten his breakfast so I was glad to find a nice Costa in the Chill Factore building, where we sat and had some toast and a nice drink.

Our Day Out At Legoland Discovery Centre

3 comments
Last month we visited the Legoland Discovery Centre in Manchester. The Legoland Discovery Centre is situated in Barton Square within the intu Trafford Centre. As it is part of the Merlin Group we get free entrance to this and also its neighbour attraction Sealife so its a great day out. If you don't have a Merlin Pass its better to visit the website before your visit as they have offers and multi buy tickets for both.

We haven't been for a few years so I was looking forward to seeing the some of the newer attractions such as Star Wars Miniland, Forest Pursuit and Merlins Apprentice. There is also a brand new attraction opening soon called Duplo Farm.
