Lego Discovery Centre

A few weeks ago, we were invited to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre for the launch party of the new Duplo village. Unfortunately this fantastic party clashed with Grandads birthday get-together, thankfully, we were able to come and visit another day to try the new area out.
We decided to visit on a busy half-term afternoon, as it was the only convenient time we could do. As we arrived, it was buzzing, kids running around happy and excited, some intensely building models, and others waiting patiently for the 4D short film to start. LEGOLAND discovery centre is on a much smaller scale then LEGOLAND Windsor but all undercover. This makes it a great day out come rain or shine.

Weight watchers, Week 3 weigh in.

Last week I set myself the goal to loose 2.5Ib. This would enable to get my 5% weight loss from original body weight weigh in award. I thought it was do-able with a lot of walking thrown in, and sticking to my points. However, shortly after posting that goal, I was invited out, not for just one, but two three course meals. I didn't count those evenings, and just had what I fancied, including a cocktail and a glass of wine. I let my hair down, and enjoyed both meals because I did.

Wicked Wednesday

Yep... now J is at school, the back chatting is in full swing, and the tantrums if she doesn't get her own way... this tantrum??  All because she is over tired....  (the no clothes because she was eating spaghetti and meatballs!)

National Adventure Farm, May half term...

"I want to hold a spider mummy!" Was all I could hear en-route to National Adventure Farm. It was a big mistake telling little S that it was wild and deadly week whilst we were there, which meant they could get up close and personal with some terrifying animals.

Hungry Horse Review

This weekend after visiting Tatton Parks Geronimo festival, we didn't want to fun to finish on such a fun family day out. Instead of heading home, we headed to Hungry Horse. Brighton Belle in Winsford. It is just a 25 minute drive from Tatton park, making it a great time to stop off if heading south. Enough time for the kiddies to have 40 winks, without them being to cranky when they wake.

Geronimo Festival review

We had been eagerly awaiting this weekend since January, when we were asked to be Geronimo ambassadors. We heard what the plan was, and it sounded like an amazing day out for families. From our experience, sometimes, the build up is not worth the event, and others, its not built up enough. Geronimo Festival, was the latter.
The atmosphere was relaxed. There was no hurrying, pushing, or urgency. We were amazed. We were expecting to need alcohol after the stress of a busy day out. However, the festival was spread out so we were not on top of others, which meant the children could get hands on. It wasn't too far spread out, so the little legs could still get around. It was very well thought out.

My Sunday Photo

This week, I have chosen two photos. The reason being, I couldn't simply choose just one. When I saw them I instantly smiled. They are so full of energy. What do you think? Which is your favourite? Both were taken at Geronimo Festival on Saturday.

Revolution Bar, Food and Cocktail review

Friday nights usually consists of myself in my pj's when the girls go to bed, and occasionally with a cheeky vodka and coke, with a film on the TV. How times have changed since parenthood, and settling down to married life. So, when Wilmslow Revolution bar invited myself and a guest to come and review them on a Friday evening, I quickly glimpsed to see if Daddy M was around for "babysitting" duties,  and snapped their hand off. A catch up with A from 3boyshubbyandme, with no children around, a cheeky cocktail, and good food was well over due.

Whats the time? Learning to tell the time...

The girls are becoming more and more aware about time. What time is it? Is a constant saying in our house, so when Little Tiger Press, offered us to review "What's the time Clockodile?" We kindly accepted.

Styal Mill, enjoying the great outdoors

The birds were singing their heavenly songs, as the soft breeze cooled us down on the warm Sunday morning. We were in good spirits celebrating Grandad's birthday a day late. The girls were happy to be outside roaming, as us adults enjoyed the slow easy paced Sunday walk and catch up.
