Last weekend saw the annual Christmas offering from the Ideal Home show team.
After having great fun at The Ideal Home Show in the summer we were really excited to head back for a taste of all things festive ahead of December arriving.
I’m always impressed with the ‘wow factor’ that hits you as you exit Earls Court station for one of the Ideal Home Show events – and being greaterdby Father Christmas, a snow machine and lots of Christmas trees certainly got us all excited for what we would find inside.
The show was packed, to be honest busy to the point of Read More →
Having spent the best part of 25 years sat next to my mother at Brisbane Rd watching our beloved O’s together it should come as no surprise that I don’t think that sporting events are a strange place to find woman and girls hanging out together. That said, I never did think the day would come that I would be seen heading to watch WWE live with a daughter of my own! Football yes, but grown men in pants pretending to want to beat each other up? Not so much!
But the day arrived and, with one very exited 5-year-old daughter and an even more excited 33-year-old friend, I headed to Wembley Arena for my very first experience of Wrestling! As soon as we got off the train you could feel the excitement in the air, these wrestling fans really take things very seriously. WWE themed clothing seamed very important, we must have stood out like a sore thumb in Read More →

We love BeWILDerwood at Essex HQ. Its about a 2 hour drive for us to get there, but it’s worth every ‘are we nearly there yet’ just to see the look on the girls faces as we arrive. We cannot wait for the all the BeWILDerwood October Half Term fun that is coming up.
Climb, run, jump, slide, swing and sail the day away at this magical land built within the trees. Our BeWILDerwood highlights are always The Broken Bridge, the zip lines and the slides (the biggest one scares the life out of me but its such a rush on the way down!). Read More →
Now work is getting busier for me and The Essex Husband is back on a Monday-Friday shift pattern, our weekends have become even more precious. The one just gone we headed down to the Gruffalo Woods Brentwood for a little Essex Gruffalo Hunting.
The Gruffalo Woods Brentwood, set within Thorndon Country Park, is a wonderfully fun adventure for all the family. It’s not that big of an area to walk around, plus it has recently had the addition of paths in some areas allowing better access for buggies. Costing only £3 for parking, and with no entry fee, it’s a must visit for all Gruffalo loving children. Read More →
I’m raising a pair of geeks, not that I mind….they clearly take after their mother, so when I was asked to take part in the Mecca Bingo‘s Summer Activities Challenge and post about something we have enjoyed doing this summer, a day at a museum was the obvious choice.
Most of our day trips when down in Looe were museum based, but our hands down favourite was The National Maritime Museum Falmouth. It was amazingly hands on, and so wonderfully informative. The girls, aged 5 and 2, were engaged from start to finish, and my husband and I found so much to read and learn too. Read More →
