Living Coasts in Torquay

February 27, 2018 admin 3

Last week we visited my Nana in Paignton and on the Wednesday we visited Torquay for the day. After finding Living Coasts on the Visit South Devon website I knew I wanted to pay them a visit, especially as the penguins roam free which certainly isn’t something you get to see everyday.   We arrived at about 11am and thankfully the school holidays in South Devon differ to those in the North West so it […]

Torquay’s Dinosaur World

February 26, 2018 admin 5

Last week my family and I went on a little holiday down south, we started in Fareham staying with my brother and then travelled to Paignton to see my nana. Before our trip I researched places to visit and things to do and found Torquay’s Dinosaur World on the Visit South Devon website and thought it would make a great trip as both boys love dinosaurs but especially the tiddler.   Torquay’s Dinosaur World in […]

The Wizard of OZ at St. Helens Theatre Royal

February 16, 2018 admin 0

On Wednesday we payed our second visit to the Theatre Royal , this time to see The Wizard of OZ. Last time we sat high up and had a wonderful view of the stage, whereas this time we were seated on the lower floor and it made me realise what a nice little theatre St. Helens is,  it had a lovely personal and intimate feel to it and I think I would probably choose these […]

Circus Extreme at Event City – Review

February 14, 2018 admin 4

Last night we had a three generation family night out to watch Circus Extreme at Event City in Manchester. This was the first time we had been to see this show and I wasn’t too sure what to expect and as it started at 7:45pm I was a little worried it might be too late for the boys and they might fall asleep. I needn’t have worried they were absolutely transfixed from start to finish. […]

Our first visit to Winter Wonderland in Manchester

December 12, 2017 admin 0

Last night we were invited to the Winter Wonderland in Manchester for some festive fun. This was our first visit and although I had heard all about it I still wasn’t sure what to expect or how an indoor theme park would actually work. We hadn’t told the boys where we were going just that it was an adventure, so when we arrived and were welcomed by elves, a winter bear, a dance show and a […]

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Theatre Royal in St.Helens

December 8, 2017 admin 6

On Wednesday we took the boys to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Theatre Royal in St.Helens. It was the first time we had been to a panto as a family of four because I was worried the tiddler would get bored and the big’un, who doesn’t like loud noises, might get scarred and we would end up leaving half way through, so to say I was a tad nervous was an understatement. […]

Be Boulder in Widnes – Review

August 23, 2017 admin 0

I love those voucher sites, groupon, living social, wocher etc, don’t you? I have found some cracking deals on them and have been able to try new things for a fraction of the price or found out about places that I didn’t know existed. Over summer we have used a couple of these vouchers and on Tuesday we used one at Be Boulder in Widnes, if you are thinking of going here are my views.   […]

Rocket building in Port Sunlight

August 9, 2017 admin 0

One of the things that I love about my blog is you guys. The ones that take the time to read the posts and then message me or comment. A couple of weeks ago I published our summer wish list of activities and later that day I received a message from a friend who had read the list and thought we might be interested in a near by event and I am so glad she […]

FREE Easter activities in Chester

April 1, 2017 admin 0

The boys broke up from school and pre school yesterday for Easter and I am lucky to be able to have almost the full two weeks off with them. However, I know that the best way to avoid an argument filled holiday period is to keep them busy, with fun filled days exploring new places and learning through new activities. This doesn’t have to cost a fortune if you know were to go, so I […]
