Our book advent activity

November 30, 2016 admin 0

One of the activities on my Christmas activity wish list was to do the book advent for the boys and at 9:30pm on the 30th November we were finally ready. Despite me organising the books in advance and trying my best to be organised this year, me and the other half were still frantically wrapping books the night before. No activity in our house is ever complete without a little drama and true to form […]

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 […]

So this year I want to make it as magical as possible and enjoy as many Christmas activities and events as we can before they get too old and too wise. Over the past few years I have seen some […]

Christmas is here and if you are still running round trying to get all those last minute presents, I have a great stocking filler for that special lady in your life that she will just love!   I’ve been lucky to have reviewed Time Bomb products before and I couldn’t recommend them enough.

Our Christmas sparkle was stolen by Broomheath plantation :(

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 […]
