Story of The Little Gentleman: The Boo Theatre

We were invited to The Boo Theatre again a couple of weeks ago, to see a new performance: Little Gentleman from The Catherine Wheels Theatre Company. Oona especially was really excited to go, since she had such a lovely time when we saw ‘Babies in Space’. I spent the morning lazing around and then, realising the house was a pig-sty… Read more →

Last weekend, Oona and I were invited along to The Boo Theatre to their ‘Babies in Space’ to join in the adventure of  baby Luna who has been lost by its Mama and needs to find its way home.

Skipton with a posh new camera 

I got myself a posh new camera. It’s a Canon S120 and I love it! I took it out with us to Skipton at the end of Summer and it did me proud! My regular readers have had to put up with some terrible pictures over the last few years (and you still will because I am likely to forget… Read more →

Legoland Christmas 

We go to Legoland at least once a month and because we go so often I usually just give you a snapshot of our visit.

As usual the big… Read more →

Calamity Jane at Liverpool 

I took Imogen to The Liverpool Empire to see Calamity Jane. It wasn’t her birthday or anything, I just took her because she is a MASSIVE fan. I kept it as a surprise for as long as I could and then told her about it. She was so excited! She wanted her hair up, under her hat like Calam so… Read more →

Chill Factore ex ice ment!

Well this has turned into a bit of a non-summer hasn’t it? It’s been nice enough for the kids to play out all the time, but not hot enough for paddling pools and water fights. I know, I know there’s time yet…we could have an Indian Summer after all…in the meantime though, why not just give in? Give in and… Read more →

Airjitzu at Legoland Manchester

Today we went to the Ninjago Airjitzu event at Legoland Discovery Centre, Manchester. We go there all the time and you would think the kids would be getting fed up of it by now but actually there’s always something different to experience despite the fact that there is always the same warm welcome with the staff recognizing the children and… Read more →
