The Great Brick Safari at Marwell Zoo

Lego Brick Safari

This week Marwell became the first zoo in the UK to host a collection of giant LEGO® brick animals and we were lucky enough to be some of the first to find them.

Among them is a 1.5 tonne elephant, a life size Bengal tiger and a family of lions. Other sculptures have been inspired by Marwell’s diverse… Continue Reading “The Great Brick Safari at Marwell Zoo”

New Look World of Top Gear at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu

World of Top Gear Launch

We last visited the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu back in April 2014 and our favourite area head to be the World of Top Gear. Although neither my husband or I are petrol heads, Top Gear is a show we love to watch and it is a real family affair as we will the presenters on to complete their challenges and laugh when they go awry.

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”
