7 Natural Wonders of Africa

Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

We’ve all heard of the Seven Wonders of the World, and the ‘Natural’ Wonders of the World. While their lists may differ, they all have one thing in common-they contain world renown spectacles which leave us amazed at the beauty, and mysteries of the world. The Natural Wonders of the World are naturally formed occurrences, places or formations which are astonishing in every aspect, so much so that they’ve been singled out above the rest. Unfortunately, we are often guilty of being oblivious to some of the greatest natural phenomenons because we either didn’t know it existed, was possible, or… Continue Reading “7 Natural Wonders of Africa”

The Band Review: Mayflower Theatre

The Band

Like many Take That fans we were hooked by last years TV show Let it Shine, which saw band Five to Five crowned champions, for the chance to star in The Band. The Band is a musical is written by The Girls’ writer Tim Firth. It tells the story of five 16-year-old girls who are fans of a boy band and is based on the experiences of Take That and features their music, but the actual story follows the girls and is a genuinely-beautiful tale of love and loss, growing up and grief. It is a big birthday for my… Continue Reading “The Band Review: Mayflower Theatre”

What to pack for a holiday to Lapland

Lapland

Visiting Lapland with the kids to meet Father Christmas has been top of my bucket list for the last few years. It is recommended not to take babies and toddlers as the weather is extremely cold outside, generally around -12ᶜ and sometimes as low as -30ᶜ this time of year, so we have been waiting until Sebastian is old enough to enjoy it too. If you are travelling to Lapland with an organised tour they may provide some of your kit, including a thermal outer-suit made for Arctic conditions, cosy woollen socks, snow-boots, outer gloves and a hat. The key… Continue Reading “What to pack for a holiday to Lapland”

Mifold Portable Grab and Go Car Booster Seat Review and Giveaway

Mifold car seat

As people that travel a lot, I was really excited to receive the mifold – Grab-and-Go Booster® seat to review. Car seats are an extremely topical subject right now, with stats showing that in around 30% of journeys that children take they are travelling illegally without any kind of car seat at all. These journeys include cab rides, transport on holidays, outings with grandparents or school friends and those unexpected trips when there is a need to take an additional child in the car. The UK car seat law requires all children travelling in the front or rear seat of any car,… Continue Reading “Mifold Portable Grab and Go Car Booster Seat Review and Giveaway”

Our Visit to BrickLive 2017

Our Visit to BrickLive 2017

Back in December 2015 we attended our first BrickLive event at the ExCel in London and it was safe to say that the kids were in LEGO heaven that day. When I saw that BrickLive was heading to Birmingham NEC and coincided with our visit to see Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure, I decided to arrange a visit to make a full day of it. Over the summer we were lucky enough to see the Great Brick Safari on location at Marwell Zoo, so it was a treat to see it again at BrickLive. Made with Over 2 million LEGO®… Continue Reading “Our Visit to BrickLive 2017”

Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure

DisneyonIceMain

Ever since our trip to Walt Disney World in the summer the kids have lived, breathed and even dreamed everything Disney! Old dusty DVD’s once loved by my older kids have been dug out and watched over and over again, our Disney CD in the car as been played to death and our subscription to the Disney Life app has been renewed. They are desperate to re-visit Disney World, but sadly funds don’t allow so I booked the next best thing: Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure which was being held at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham. We managed to… Continue Reading “Disney On Ice: Passport to Adventure”
