Today, we headed up to Dalby Forest to take part in a very special, once-in-a-lifetime (possibly) sporting event – The Stick Man Games! Who doesn’t love the story of Stick Man by Julia Donaldson?
I know, right? It’s almost the end of the month and I still haven’t gotten around to this month’s linky, but fear not – here it is – THE linky for family days out in the UK. Where have you been in May?
With both schools being super busy this month, we haven’t had chance to get too far – but we have squeezed in a trip to The Deep. You can read about our trip with Charlie the school bear at The Deep, Hull
We are very much looking forward to this half-term when we will be venturing a little to the north and exploring a couple of places in North Yorkshire.
It’s been a while since we visited The Deep in Hull. While not much really changes year on year – which my children LOVE by the way! – we do like visiting and seeing the wonderful array of sealife on display, including numerous fish and rays, sharks, and more recently, penguins.
Hello! I am going to Blog On Manchester this weekend. I think it will be my fourth one. I think that means I’ve been to all of them.
Well, I couldn’t not really. Many moons ago (OK, about four years ago, maybe three) there was me and Laura in a pub. Somewhere in Manchester city centre. There was wine. That much I remember. She said she could do a blog conference and did I think anyone would come. I said that I would anyway. I said “If you build it, they will come” in some weird voice of authority. So I really had to didn’t I? Continue reading
Sorry. Been busy. But here it is – THE linky for family days out in the UK. Where have you been in April?
Us? We’ve been busy. The Easter holidays saw us take a trip to the Midlands where we investigated Cadbury World and Drayton Manor. I’ve yet to get round to actually writing about them, but I’ll get there! Continue reading
On Mother’s Day we sent Anne and her family to check out The Floating Showroom as it hosted an Origami Poetry Cafe.
Here’s what Anne had to say….
“It’s as original as it sounds. Continue reading
The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester (also known as the MOSI) is one of the free museums managed by the Science Museum Group. Like other museums in this group (The Science Museum, and the National Railway Museum in York), it is huge and there is a lot to see and do for all ages. Did I say it was FREE? Continue reading
With spring fast approaching, it’s about time we got about and about a bit more. We need your inspiration!
Have you had a day trip somewhere this March which you can share with others? Whether it’s a theme park, the beach, a zoo, or a museum, if it’s in the UK and you can go with children then we want to know about it. Continue reading
With half-term just around the corner, I’d like to share with you three things to do with your children. As it’s looking likely to be a bit cold and wet this coming week, I’ve given you suggestions for indoor ‘days out’. Hopefully, the forecast will be wrong and we’ll be able to get outside for a while but you know, best to be prepared! Continue reading
On Sunday, I had a little child-free day out of my own. To Doncaster in South Yorkshire. I know, right? It’s not the most glamourous of towns, but then I’m used to that. It wasn’t to do anything particularly adventurous, well unless you call walking at a steady pace through the town centre adventurous. There wasn’t even a prize at the end of my walk. So why did I bother? Continue reading
