We started the May half term holidays a bit glum about the fact we had no plans. That all changed very quickly on the first Saturday afternoon. A family member had offered to lend us a 12 man tent and despite us both saying, “we will never go camping”, we had the sudden desire to […]
Sometimes it’s easy to forget, that it’s often the simple things in life, that children love most. We find ourselves sat around wondering what to do for the day on a Sunday, as though the only options are a full day out somewhere, that costs an arm and a leg. Truth be told, my […]
After a few crazy months of travel, birthday parties, days out and of course that all important question that Mike asked me, we’ve been enjoying a quiet half term, close to home. I’m blogging a full update of the past few months in our crazy lives next week. Today I just wanted to share a […]
I’ve never been great at the whole eye-and-hand coordination thing, but I remember in high school, one of the few sports I could actually hit the ball in, was tennis. So, last year, when I heard about the Great British Tennis Weekend (GBTW), I thought I’d check it out. My family and I visited […]
Two years ago, we took on the Gromit Unleashed Trail in Bristol, an art sculture trail, which is part of The Grand Appeal, raising money for Bristol Children’s Hospital. This year, Aardman Animations launched Shaun in the City – a very similar art sculpture trail, featuring Shaun the Sheep. There were 50 Shaun sculptures in […]
This week we went to LEGOLAND as Bunny was desperate to see the new Heartlake City development. All three girls had a fabulous time, but I particularly loved these two photos of the three of them. The one above with a Lego Cat and the one below, taken on the carousel.
Most Wednesday’s we go to St James City Farm in Gloucester. This is one of their residents, Phatboy the Owl. SHE is absolutely beautiful, despite having a boys name!
Over the Easter holidays, Bunny joined Beat Camp for two days. Bunny has wanted to do Beat Camp for a really long time, so we decided to make it happen. Beat Camp is a holiday club (and after school club in some Gloucestershire schools) for children aged between 6-12 years. Beat Camp encompasses different percussion techniques (including junk […]
One thing I have ALWAYS wanted to do is get a Merlin annual pass and visit as many Merlin attractions as possible in one year. This year I am doing it! Merlin have 31 Worlds of fun in the UK, including some of my favourites, LEGOLAND, Thorpe Park, Alton Towers, Chessington World of Adventures, Blackpool […]
We recently went to Webbs of Wychbold to celebrate the start of the festive season. Webbs is probably the biggest garden centre, I have ever been to. In fact, it’s not just a garden centre, they sell everything from toys, greeting cards and clothes, to Christmas decorations and they even have a food hall. It’s […]
