Isaac’s Outdoor Activities Birthday Party at Avon Tyrell

Birthday Cake

On Sunday, Isaac turned 9 years old and in the lead up to his birthday he told me that he wanted something different for his party. Last year he literally had a blast with a Science Party and prior to that he had a superhero themed party which were both held indoors, but Isaac is quite an adventurous boy with a passion for being outside and is quite a daredevil on the quiet, so I thought I would take a chance on the weather… Continue Reading “Isaac’s Outdoor Activities Birthday Party at Avon Tyrell”

A Magical Winter Wonderland with Christmas at Paultons Park

We have been going to Winter Wonderland at Paultons Park, home of Peppa Pig World, for a few years now and I will admit that last year we found it a little tired and dated – not that the kids cared.

You are given a specified… Continue Reading “A Magical Winter Wonderland with Christmas at Paultons Park”

The show… Continue Reading “Horrible Science at Winchester Science Centre”

The entrance is still the same with the penguins cheerily greeting you as you arrive alongside a small sea themed park to… Continue Reading “An Autumn Day Out at Marwell Zoo”

My Great British Family Holiday #OMGBFamily

Rope Swing

I have very fond memories of holiday’s as a child and always looked forward to spending time with Great Auntie Kathleen and Great Uncle Len who lived in Somerford, then Hampshire. I lived in West Sussex at the time, a stones throw from the shingle beach and not too far from the bright lights of Brighton, but holiday’s with my Aunt and Uncle always stick in my mind. It’s funny what you remember, the journey through the New Forest that… Continue Reading “My Great British Family Holiday #OMGBFamily”
