Half term so far…

Well it’s been a great few days of holiday fun already.

•Monday we had a lovely lazy day at home…kids played and we also enjoyed watching ‘Oz and the great powerful!’ The film was so good, they didn’t move through the whole 1&half hours of it.
We also popped to the pet shop to have a browse at the rabbits, rats, mice and fish….shame we couldn’t take one of the fury buggers home 😉 they were oh so cute!
We also popped to the pound shop. The kids love to be able to choose a toy and mummy doesn’t have to worry about the price lol

•Tuesday we had a great morning at Kidspace adventures in Croydon with friends then lunch at Mac D’s.
Afternoon was spent in the park as the weather was oh so lush. OJ played football with people he had introduced himself too and CJ made friends with little girls who had babies and dolls…I enjoyed a good catchup with a friend.

•Wednesday….a family day spent up in London. Coming soon on a separate post 🙂

So for now we have enjoyed our holidays with friends and family and hope to feel refreshed and ready for school on Monday 🙂

Loving the holiday’s already?!

Sooooo it’s half term already…..sure it was only just Christmas holidays?!

Can’t believe how quickly 2015 is passing us by already. Seems as if summer is only round the corner…but now its February half term and the fun has begun.

We have already ventured to Kidspace for some fun straight after school broke up and enjoyed our Valentines meal a day before. Steak, Pudding, Wine, Chocolates….oh so good 😉

Woke up to a cuppa in my love mug, beautiful red roses, a teddy (which CJ has taken a shine to) and a lovely card. Thanks hubby;) and Happy Valentines Day to you!!

I know there is a cliche of Valentines Day and how for just one day you ‘need’ to be romantic and loving and spend shit loads of money, but deep down everyone loves it and would be very hurt if their partners didn’t get involved. Even just the card or flowers can be sentimental or breakfast in bed. Unless your partners buy flowers every week or spoil you with gifts and romance everyday (ha, who does that) then you can’t say for just 1 day you’re not bothered about valentines.

Deep down us women and men love to give or get given something special. Just embrace it and enjoy 😉 xox

5 TOP February Half Term Day’s Out…

Wow, can’t believe it’s February half term already. Still only seems like christmas was just yesterday!

The question on every mum and dad’s mind is, what the hell do I do with the kids?! My kids can drive me up the wall if stuck indoors for to long. Its like I keep them caged and they never see the light…

Why is it that when you make plans for the afternoon the kids play so beautifully together, no fighting, no moaning in the mornings and then trying to get them out the house is a mission, but if we decided to have a lazy day and go no where, that they then decide to misbehave, argue with each other or better yet moan they are bored. Drives me up the wall.

Then the weather doesn’t help when it still feels so frosty and cold, we struggle to come up with exciting ideas to keep the kids entertained. Do we venture outdoors? Farm’s and zoo’s are always a great idea and the kids love it, so here are a few places my way that we love to visit.

  • Brockets Farm, Leatherhead Surrey
  • Godstone Farm, Godstone Surrey
  • Dean City Farm, Morden South London
  • London Zoo, Regents Park London

We also love to visit London town and it only seems to be half term holidays that we take a trip on the trains, underground and buses. So here are our TOP 5 things to do/places to go this February half term 2015

  1. children-south-bank-centreImagine Children’s Festival  – South Bank Centre  – This event is running now up until 22nd February. There are so many things to do and keep busy including theatre shows, dance, music and readings from top author’s.
  2. Croydon Play frameKidspace – Croydon – We are lucky to have an annual membership for this fab indoor play area. Can’t say no to £15 a month membership for family of 4. Visit kidspaceadventures.com and see what they have to offer.
  3. 1-pm-natural-history-museum-londonNatural History Museum – South Kensington – This has got to be the best place to take the kids and always so much to do there for any age. We love it and can’t wait to visit again soon.
  4. marchio-ufficiale-peppa-pig-mania-peppa_pigPeppa pig: Golden Boots – Odeon – If the kids love this popular show then it’s out now for all to see. Book tickets soon and enjoy.
  5. 8721_original_SEA_LIFE_London_Aquarium_Priority_Entrance_Ticket_1367229539Sea Life Centre – Waterloo and Brighton – Yet again a favourite place for us to visit. The kids love the interactive areas and the sharks. Half term can be very busy, so try visit as soon as they open.

I hope you all have a fantastic half term and that the rain stays away so that we can enjoy the outdoors, if not, then its muddy puddle jumping we go!

Let me know all the fun places you might be visiting over the next week, would be good to get some ideas.
