Dinosaur World Live in Chester

April 10, 2018 admin 0

At the weekend we went to the new theatre in Chester, The Story House, which is just the best addition to the city, to watch Dinosaur World Live. I wasn’t to sure what to expect from the show but my eldest had informed me that “when the meteor hit the earth 5 dinosaur eggs were saved and it’s probably about time they hatched so maybe this is them putting on a show using those real […]

Our first trip to Marco Pierre White in Chester

April 8, 2018 admin 0

I thought I would share another one of my “bucket list experiences” with you from three years ago when I set myself the challenge to do 30 things before I turned 30. This time it is of a memory of a more sedate experience which was to eat in a celebrity restaurant. When I added this to the list I didn’t have a particular chef or restaurant in mind, any would do, I just wanted […]

That time I drove an Aston Martin

March 30, 2018 admin 0

When I was 29 I wrote a list of 30 things I wanted to complete before I was 30 and although I never quite completed the list I did manage to tick off most of them with a bit of help from family and friends. One of the things on my list was to drive a really fast car and my husband arranged this for me for my birthday at the Three Sisters in Wigan. […]

Cinderella at the St.Helens Theatre Royal

March 26, 2018 admin 0

On Saturday night we visited The Theatre Royal in St. Helens to watch our third panto, Cinderella, and I think I was more excited for this one than the children were because Prince Charming is played by no other than Lee Latchford-Evans from Steps. This little nugget of information meant that the week leading up to panto day was spent with me singing various renditions of my favourite Steps songs (along with dance moves) and […]

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.
