The Storyhouse in Chester have done it again. They have managed to deliver yet another incredible show worthy of the West End in a city that until recently hadn’t had a theatre for years, yet is now becoming the place to be for some of the best touring shows across the country and this time it is the world renowned Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.   When we first got invited over to the […]

Salford Museum and Art Gallery

April 15, 2019 admin 0

During the Easter holidays the boys and I were invited over to Salford Museum and Art Gallery, an attraction that is totally free to the public. Despite having visited Manchester several times and enjoying nothing more than a free day out and educational places we hadn’t even heard of the Salford museum and Art Gallery, let alone visited and if I am to be totally honest I think I would have avoided it as the […]

Chocolate free Easter gift ideas

April 9, 2019 admin 0

Easter is usually a time that means over indulging in chocolate and I for one do not have a problem with that, but then I am a self confessed chocholic. However we do try and limit the children’s intake of sugar where we can and for that reason we usually opt for chocolate free Easter gift ideas from us (or rather that dam bunny that takes all the credit) as we know they will get […]

Yesterday I took our youngest to see Zog at the Storyhouse in Chester, which we are lucky enough to call our local theatre. If you haven’t already heard about this performance then it is live stage adaptation of the incredible book, Zog, written by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler.   The book is one of our favourites and one I can now read the majority of without even looking at the pages as we have […]

The Wizard of Oz at St.Helens Theatre Royal 2019

April 7, 2019 admin 1

Last night we went to watch the opening night of The Wizard of Oz at St.Helens Theatre Royal, our favourite place for pantomimes and once again we spent the evening belly laughing from start to finish. I always worry that there will come a time when these pantomimes will start to feel a bit samey samey as we go as regularly as we can and yet each time I leave feeling shocked at how they have […]

On Monday night I had the absolute pleasure of being invited to the opening night of Annie at the Storyhouse in Chester.

Our first visit to Warwick Castle

February 27, 2019 admin 2

During Feb half term we headed to Devon for a week, breaking the journey there up with a few days at my brothers and breaking the journey home up with a day at Warwick Castle. As a family we love visiting new places, exploring old stately homes and examining castles, but Warwick Castle is one of the few we hadn’t visited so being invited during half term made for a lovely treat.   Warwick castle […]

Last week we visited family in South Devon and spent time exploring the local area with a ride on a steam train, walks on the beach and drives through the most picturesque parts of the country. Whilst there we were lucky enough to invited over to Pennywell Farm for the day which is only a 30 minute car journey from Paignton where we were staying, so of course we agreed.   Being lovers of outdoor […]
