Summer Holidays at Roarr!

We spent a very happy and hot day at Roarr! with a very happy and hot child this week. During lockdown I had asked L to write down anything that he wanted to do once we were able and visiting the dinosaurs was on that list, so when we were gifted tickets to visit I couldn’t wait to tell him.

This half term they are offering half price kids entry if they go in fancy dress and it was really fun seeing all the kids dressed up, running around and having fun. There are lots of fun activities to take part in too.

We caught up with my sister and my niece and just made the most of the fact that we were somewhere a one year old and a six year old could both have fun and that there were plenty of things for us to do inside in the warm.

Thursford Christmas Spectacular

Last Friday I went to watch the Thursford Christmas Spectacular with my friend. Neither of us had been before, so we were really excited to check it out.

Thursford Christmas Spectacular

From the moment we arrived it was just magical. Trees covered in lights everywhere you look, from the carpark guiding you in and as you walk through an archway into Thursford the magic only increases. With animatontric huskies barking their greeting and even more lights than you would have thought possible.

Wild About Autumn

Autumn is hands down my favourite season, I’m definitely wild about Autumn. Chunky knits, hot chocolates a plenty, beautiful colours and a mix of wonderful weathers that can be delightful and dramatic all within half an hour.

I’m sat here writing this, cosy inside as the rain is beating down against my window and oddly I’m looking forward to the school run. Because on the way home we can jump in puddles and run and splash and get as cold and wet as we please, knowing that home is waiting with warm blankets and a hot drink. The perfect way to brighten my very grey day will be splishy, sploshy fun with my kid.
