Growing the best type of lawn for your garden usage

April 18, 2019 admin 0

If you don’t have much of a green thumb, you might not be aware that a garden lawn can be made of different types of grass. And for every type of grass, there are characteristics and traits that make them better-suited to one purpose or another. Whether you use your garden for entertaining or as a play space for the kids, the right type of lawn can go a long way to protecting both you […]

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 […]

April 12, 2019 admin 4

We have a fantastic prize on offer for you this month, a family ticket to the opening day of the incredible two day family event, Cheshire Fest 2019. This is a family festival to rival all others and the best bit, as far as I am concerned, is that it is being held here in the North West at Manchester Rugby Club in Cheadle Hulme on June 1st and 2nd.    Cheshire Fest 2019 has […]

Getting ready for summer with the VonHaus pressure washer

April 10, 2019 admin 3

Over the Easter holidays the weather has definitely been good to us and as a result we have started making some progress on our garden makeover, which admittedly was meant to happen two years ago, but better late than never. The original plans have changed a bit and we have now decided to dig up some of the raised patio bit and extend the grass and as the kids are getting older we are going […]

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 […]

Zog at the Storyhouse Chester

April 8, 2019 admin 0

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.

Should children be taught about sexuality in schools?

March 22, 2019 admin 0

You may have seen recently that there have been a few televised debates asking the question, Should children be taught about sexuality in schools? Which comes after some pretty shocking footage released from schools where parents are protesting about this very thing. There have been calls for LGBTQ lessons to be cancelled and reports of children certain teachers being personally victimised. The whole thing is abhorrent  and actually quiet shocking in today’s day and age, […]
