Thomas Land: Review and Competition

We were lucky enough to be selected as ambassadors for Drayton Manor Theme Park during their 2015 season. We have been going regularly since Lia was just four months old and it is safe to say that it is the girls’ absolute favourite place. If you are a fan of Drayton Manor or would love to give it a try, keep reading for your chance to win a family pass for a day at Drayton Manor this season. Today, we were invited to the first day of the Thomas & Friends Weekends at Thomas Land within Drayton Manor. These are…

Last week was half term and we filled it with lovely days out. At the weekend, we kept things relatively calm to give the girls a chance to recover from their hectic week. We stayed local and made the most of our National Trust membership, heading to our favourite attraction. The weather was terrible, but we still managed to get out to the park. Since then, we’ve got quite nicely back into our usual routine. Libby is still enjoying nursery and Lia is loving her activities in the mornings. Yesterday I even treated them to a morning at soft play,…

Whilst I hate the…

Our Thursday photo #92

This week instead of a weekly update, I’ve got a story to tell. As usual, my dangerous dog plays a starring role. It all started as soon as I stepped out of the door to take the dogs for a walk. My husband had taken the girls to playgroup and true to form, he’d forgotten to take a spare nappy for Lia, who promptly crapped herself. He sent me a text asking me to drop off a spare. So, knowing full well that our walk was going to be cut short, I headed straight to the nearby muddy field to let the dogs…
