Sebby’s 8th Birthday Party at Kids on Quadz, Bournemouth

Sebby has been planning his birthday party since he missed out on one last year, thanks to lockdown. We had been looking at activities online when we spotted Kids on Quadz parties in Bournemouth and from the moment he saw a video of it, he was sold! We had booked it for his actual birthday, but in true COVID style, I got pinged by my app and had to isolate for 10 days. Thankfully, the guys at Kids on Quadz… Continue Reading “Sebby’s 8th Birthday Party at Kids on Quadz, Bournemouth”

Review: Lunch at The Greyhound Inn, Corfe Castle

The Greyhound Inn sign

One of our favourite days out locally is to Corfe Castle and if we are not climbing the castle itself, we will be finding somewhere which overlooks it for a bracing walk and a fabulous photo opportunity. After trekking up and down the hills around Corfe, it is perfectly acceptable to reward yourself with a pub lunch and on Monday, we did just that when we were invited for lunch at The Greyhound Inn, which sits in the shadow of… Continue Reading “Review: Lunch at The Greyhound Inn, Corfe Castle”

Snakes in the Heather Walk at Parley Common

I am always on the lookout for different things to engage the kids, especially as they are now getting older and more tricky to please.

I am a member of the facebook group, Dorset Goes Wild, which aims to encourage, enthuse and educate primary school children… Continue Reading “Snakes in the Heather Walk at Parley Common”

An evening at Hollywood Bowl – Tower Park

With restrictions easing, we have been looking at activities we can all do as a family this half term. Ten pin bowling is great all round fun whether you’re with family or friends and we were invited to go to Hollywood Bowl, at Tower Park, Poole. We last visited for Sebby’s birthday back in 2016, so was hoping to see some improvement in all our skills. Of course, some things have changed and there are hand-sanitiser stations at the entrance… Continue Reading “An evening at Hollywood Bowl – Tower Park”

Review: Car Park Party Billionaire Boy

Billionaire-Boy

Back in February, when we were in the midst of lockdown, I saw Car Park Party were touring with Billionaire Boy and they were coming to Poole. We love going to the theatre and were booked to see Frozen with Eliza on her birthday, but understandably it had been postponed for the second time. Her other love is reading and she adores David Walliams, so I decided to book us in, even though I was a little unsure of watching… Continue Reading “Review: Car Park Party Billionaire Boy”
