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 […]

Our trip to the Wyevale Christmas grotto

November 29, 2016 admin 0

This weekend was the start of our Christmas festivities and no such plans would be complete without a trip to see Father Christmas. We were invited to visit the grotto at Wyevale garden center in Nantwich and the children coldnt wait to tell him what they wanted. We had never been to Wyevale before and were amazed to find that it was so much more than a garden center, with shops, cafes, crazy golf and […]

Num Noms take over Bella Italia

September 9, 2016 admin 3

A couple of weeks ago the boys and I were invited to a Num Noms event at Bella Italia. I had no idea what a num nom was but the event included pizza and ice cream so the boys (and I) were sold on the idea. It turns out that num noms are small squishy, stackable toys  that have surprise features, such as stamps and lip balms.     When we arrived at Bella Italia […]

How to have a fun day out without breaking the bank

September 4, 2016 admin 0

Everyone loves a good family day out but sometimes it feels impossible to enjoy the nicer things in life and visit the most talked about attractions when you have to pay for tickets for a whole family, in our case two adults and two children, especially during school holidays when you have so many days to fill. I am a big believer in accessing free events and attractions but every now and the we do […]

Free family fun at Warrington with VPX

August 16, 2016 admin 2

Today we headed over to a community organised event in Warrington. I had only planned on popping in with the boys for an hour or two but we ended up staying for 6 hours and even watched everyone pack up and leave as we enjoyed our ice creams in the last of the sunshine. The day was full of activities for children of all ages to encourage them to try new sports  and with the Olympics […]

Has Toby Carvery got what it takes to impress my family?

August 4, 2016 admin 0

Having just returned from two weeks of all-inclusive food and drink it was fair to say we were all feeling our waist bands getting tighter and our energy levels a bit zapped. The food on holiday was lovely and I enjoyed salad and vegetables with every meal, along with cakes, chips and cocktails. The children however were a bit fussier, with the tiddler living on cucumber and ice cream as his staple pieces and the […]

Day out at Loggerheads in North Wales

June 29, 2016 admin 0

Over the last 18 months my husband and I have come to realise that the best days out with our boys are those spent in open spaces. We can admire the scenery whilst the boys can be boys, run, jump, climb and be noisy without fear of judgmental looks from others. We have also discovered that living only 20 minutes from North Wales is a huge bonus as they have loads of amazing and beautiful places to […]
