6 October 2018

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.

Our Sunday Photo - 01/10/2017

1 October 2017

Last night we headed up to Blackpool to see the Blackpool lights. It's something we do every year but usually we have our winter coats on, hats, scarves, gloves etc but yesterday we just had our rain macs on. It wasn't very cold yesterday so it didn't really feel right seeing the lights on a warm day. We are so used to walking round Blackpool with the cold wind on our face. We might have to take another trip up before they finish. Anyone else been to see the lights yet?

Our Summer Days - Day 16, Walton Hall Gardens

8 August 2017

5 comments
We spent a lovely day at Walton Hall Gardens on Day 16 of Our Summer Days. The weather wasn't great but it was dry so we made the most of no rain and headed out. Walton Hall Gardens is in Warrington so about 30 minutes from home. We haven't been for quite a few years now and I am pleased to say that it was so much better than I had expected thanks to a few enhancements.

Saturday Morning Visit To Mini Moose Land At Chill Factore

26 October 2016

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.

Our Family Fortnight 01/10/16

1 October 2016

3 comments

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

20 September 2016

2 comments

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

17 May 2016

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.

Bubbles World Of Play Review

29 March 2016

14 comments
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

26 March 2016

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.
