At the start of June we took the boys to their first ever festival, Cheshire Fest, and we had such a good time that since then we have been looking for more family festivals that we can visit this year and are thinking of going to the BBC Summer Social (3-4 August, 2019).    It looks like it is going to be amazing, completely aimed at children and families and incredible value for money with everything […]

Best bars in Liverpool

January 31, 2019 admin 1

I have written about Liverpool a few times because it quite simply is one of my all time favourite cities, which is helpful seen as though it is only 40 minutes up the road from us. I love Liverpool mainly for it’s diversity, there is literally something for everyone with so much choice from family days out, couple retreats, shopping trips and nights out, not to mention their abundance of cultural festivals and museums.   […]

Liverpool is one of my favourite cities because there is loads to see and do and there is always something new going on from Giant parades, to cultural festival,  and of course the Christmas markets. As well as having loads to see and do there are also lots of lovely hotels in Liverpool and with 3 train stations it’s easily accessible for a day trip or weekend break. If you are thinking of visiting Liverpool […]

Our first visit to VR-here Liverpool

November 27, 2018 admin 0

On Sunday we took the train over to Liverpool and enjoyed a lovely family day out. We started our day with a trip to VR-here Liverpool, which is located just outside of the city center in an industrial area but is within walking distance, even for little legs like those of the tiddler. We hadn’t told the boys where we were headed but as soon as they read the sign outside they were so excited […]

Discovering Spaceport with Mersey Ferries

October 16, 2018 admin 0

Despite living here for the best part of 14 years we had never visited Spaceport or taken the ferry across the Mersey to Liverpool, although we had talked about doing it a few times, that is until this week when we combined both activities and had a fun filled, educational, family Sunday.   We headed over to Spaceport for 10 am when it opened, which I would recommend you do too if you decide to […]

Summer productions at The Epstein Theatre in Liverpool

On Monday the boys and I were lucky enough to get some last minute tickets to watch Pinocchio: The boy within, at The Epstein Theatre in Liverpool. As a family we love a good show and try and go as often as we can but we had never been to the Epstein Theatre before and as Billy was working it was just me and the kids, so we decided to make a day of it […]

The magic of my name personalised books

June 29, 2018 admin 0

I am a huge lover of personlaised gifts. I have said it time and time again, I think they just show that little bit of extra thought has gone into buying a present for someone and they then become special keepsakes that you are more likely to cherish over the years.   I am also an avid reader. I love books so much that I even joined a book club in January and now meet up […]
