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 […]

We were first introduced to the world of Smiggle back in July 2016 when we were invited as a family to the launch of their new range at the their Manchester store. We had a wonderful morning and left with a selection of fun and interesting pieces of stationery and small toys. Since then we have included Smiggle items in the boys Christmas stockings and have purchased items as gifts for their friends birthdays. Since […]

During our Fridays we try and have as much fun as possible, we visit the zoo, go swimming, treat ourselves to cakes and milkshakes and have recently found joy in […]

Our Christmas sparkle was stolen :(

December 16, 2015 admin 0

5 weeks ago my family and I took our annual trip to the Broomheath plantation to pick our Christmas tree. It was a lovely day spent hunting for the perfect tree to fit in our living room to be tagged ready for us to chop down ourselves in December. On Saturday we went with our two very excited boys (5 and 3) to cut down our tree, take it home and decorate it. Despite the […]

Who loves a bit of Hanky Panky?

During half term I had to take my car for the dreaded MOT whilst I had my two boys, 5 and 3. The mechanic said it would take about an hour so we took a walk into Chester in hunt for a pancake house that had been recommended by friends. It took us a while to find it as it’s off the main road hidden away down a quiet little street behind the hustle and bustle […]
