A review of Ordsall Hall in Salford

April 23, 2019 admin 0

Over the Easter holidays we were invited to Manchester for a day out. We started off at Salford Museum and Art Gallery and then after lunch we headed to Ordsall Hall in Salford which is a free attraction for everyone to enjoy. We hadn’t been to Ordsall Hall before and weren’t to sure what to expect but if I ask you to imagine a national trust property then you can probably imagine something very similar, […]

Salford Museum and Art Gallery

April 15, 2019 admin 0

During the Easter holidays the boys and I were invited over to Salford Museum and Art Gallery, an attraction that is totally free to the public. Despite having visited Manchester several times and enjoying nothing more than a free day out and educational places we hadn’t even heard of the Salford museum and Art Gallery, let alone visited and if I am to be totally honest I think I would have avoided it as the […]

August 8, 2018 admin 4

Earlier this week were invited to go and try out the new VR experience at Legoland Manchester and boy were the kids excited. The tiddler was excited for the general day out as he hasn’t been to the Manchester Legoland discovery center since his 4th birthday when he was told he was too young for one of the rides, so he really wanted to go back so he could ‘finally’ go on it and the […]

Celebrity MUA masterclass in Manchester

July 11, 2018 admin 0

When I first started writing my blog it was my little piece of pink in a world full of a blue, in other words it was my release to be girly, write about make up and clothing and escape the constant refereeing and child wrangling that had become my life after having two boys. However this quickly became more about them than it did about anything girly and instead I now find myself reviewing family […]

Our first visit to Winter Wonderland in Manchester

December 12, 2017 admin 0

Last night we were invited to the Winter Wonderland in Manchester for some festive fun. This was our first visit and although I had heard all about it I still wasn’t sure what to expect or how an indoor theme park would actually work. We hadn’t told the boys where we were going just that it was an adventure, so when we arrived and were welcomed by elves, a winter bear, a dance show and a […]
