Things to do in Liverpool

November 28, 2018 admin 2

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

July 27, 2018 admin 0

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 […]

My trip to the Very dresses event in Liverpool

November 23, 2016 admin 0

One of the best things about blogging is an event, most of mine are usually aimed at the boys. We go  out for the day, or even the night, and eat food and play with plenty of toys.   But last week was totally different, an invite arrived from Very. It was addressed to me and not the boys, and this made me feel rather merry.   It was the Christmas dress preview event, with […]

Has Toby Carvery got what it takes to impress my family?

August 4, 2016 admin 0

Having just returned from two weeks of all-inclusive food and drink it was fair to say we were all feeling our waist bands getting tighter and our energy levels a bit zapped. The food on holiday was lovely and I enjoyed salad and vegetables with every meal, along with cakes, chips and cocktails. The children however were a bit fussier, with the tiddler living on cucumber and ice cream as his staple pieces and the […]

When the Strawberry Fountain completed The Claire House Splash Dash

July 10, 2016 admin 2

Those that have been following my blog will know that my husband and I are always looking for new outdoor fun to have with our boys and this weekend we had the opportunity to try something new, The Claire House Splash Dash.   My eldest had seen pictures of the splash dash and had asked if we could do it so when the opportunity came up I thought it would be just perfect. We kept […]

Free family day out at Rice Lane City Farm in Liverpool

June 17, 2016 admin 4

This half term has been wonderful, not only was I lucky enough to have a full week off with my boys but we were also blessed with the most amazing weather, making it the perfect time to explore new out door places. As most parents will agree, with school holidays comes the added expense of entertaining the children, so free days out are always welcome. I did some research into free days out in Liverpool […]
