New Summer Menu at Urban Reef

Urban Reef sign

We have been fans of Urban Reef restaurant since it opened although we seem to pop in for a cheeky lunch date when the kids are at school, rather than visit for an evening meal these days. Urban Reef describes itself as an ‘informal bar, deli, cafe and restaurant’ located next to the beach on Boscombe Promenade and we love it because it gives us the chance to go for a bracing walk along the beach with a special hot… Continue Reading “New Summer Menu at Urban Reef”

Schleich Tractor and Trailer Set Review

We are huge fans of Schleich figures in our house and have drawers full of farm animals and dinosaurs which get played with regularly.

Weebledown Farm Review

Weebledown Farm

I have fond memories of Weebles as a child – I remember being absolutely determined that I could make them fall down but never managed it! Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down! If you are unfamiliar with a Weeble,┬áit is a toy that is shaped like an egg that has a heavier bottom than top, meaning it rights itself when pushed over – hence it never falls down! We were sent Weebledown Farm to review last week and I… Continue Reading “Weebledown Farm Review”
