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 […]

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.

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 2

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 […]
