This summer the boys and I were invited to Sea Life Manchester and the Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester  for the day.

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, […]

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 […]
