Jelly Invaders at the National Sea Life Centre

Over the weekend, we enjoyed a trip out to the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham. We’re working with them this year and love putting our annual passes to use. The kids are always excited to visit, and this time were even more so as they knew there was a …

Our Disney World Plans

How can it be only a few weeks until we go to Disney World? The time has just flown by, and I think, I hope, we are all set for it now. We have moved resorts since we first booked and are happy with that, we have got our seats …

A Free Day Out With The Kids!

Free days out with the kids can be hard to come by, especially when we have so much rain forecast over the holidays. Lots of our go-to free places are outdoors, from feeding the ducks to going to playgrounds to whizzing around on bikes or scooters. But it can be …

Disney on Ice: Worlds of Enchantment Tour

Last week we spent a magical afternoon at Disney On Ice’s Worlds of Enchantment tour. It was utterly brilliant! We are big Disney fans in our house, so this was absolutely perfect for us. We have seen Disney On Ice a few times now and it seems that we all …

Easter Fun with Cadbury Peter Rabbit!

Oh my, we had the BEST delivery last week, a bundle full of Cadbury Easter eggs. Can there be anything better than being picked up from school and told that when you get home you’ll be having some Easter fun and going on an Easter egg hunt? Not your average …

Siblings March 2018

These two are too close this month, just too close! I think it’s a combination of a few things, from awful weather weekends keeping us inside a bit more than usual, the excitement of our upcoming holiday and Little Man being poorly a couple of times. All of these things …

10 Ways to Enjoy the Countdown to a Disney World Holiday

As regular readers will know, we are very excited here as we’re counting down to our first family Disney World holiday. We booked it last May and we now have less than three months to go, with the anticipation heightening weekly. With a Disney World holiday, a lot of the …

A Fun Day Out At Twycross Zoo

On Saturday we kicked off half term with a fun day out to Twycross Zoo. Twycross Zoo is one of my favourite days out, as I have so many happy memories of going there when I was a child, and it’s now great to see my kids enjoying it so …

Siblings February 2018

A new tradition has started in our house. Apparently, every Sunday is now Disney Day! The kids decided this two to three weeks ago, when we got our Disney World holiday countdown up and running. They tell me that as it is now this year that we are going, they …

Siblings January 2018

We had a brilliant Christmas break, a much needed fortnight off school for these two. We broke up quite late so they only had a couple of days off before the big day itself – it’d be fair to say that excitement levels were high! It actually worked quite well …

Christmas at the National Sea Life Centre Birmingham

Over the weekend we visited the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham. We hadn’t been for a few months, and we were very keen to go whilst they had an extra special guest in residence. We were there nice and early, and it seems this is a good time to …

Our Christmas Traditions

I feel like there’s no other time of year more full of traditions than Christmas. We already have quite a few here, and with the kids still quite young, I am sure we’ll be adding to them year on year going forward. So here are a few of our Christmas …

Drayton Manor’s Magical Christmas

Over the weekend we were invited along to experience Drayton Manor’s Magical Christmas, and we all had a brilliant time. Drayton’s Magical Christmas includes entrance into Thomasland and all of its rides and there are even a few rides running out in the rest of Drayton Manor. There are snow …

Siblings November 2017

Another month has rolled around! So what’s this last month brought to my pair of siblings? We’ve had half term, a welcome break and it was great to see the two of them enjoying each other’s company all week. It’s funny how quickly I’ve adjusted to not having my Little …

Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure

There was much excitement here yesterday as last night we went to see Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure at the Arena, Birmingham. As regular readers will know, we are all about Disney here at the moment as we are off to Disney World next summer, so this show was …
