Last Friday we had an inset day, so with some friends we headed down to Drayton Manor Theme Park for the day. The weather as we set off was horrendous and we were really considering cancelling our plans, the drive down was awful, roads were flooded and visibility was really bad on the motorway. But by some stroke of luck when we arrived the rain seemed to ease and we managed to get through the whole day with only mild drizzle to contend with. The wettest we got was on the water rides 😉 Read more
A helicopter flight has been on my wish list for ages, despite having done it when I was little I really wanted to experience it again so I was over the moon a couple of months a go when the lovely people at Buyagift sent me a voucher for a 25-35 Minute Extended Helicopter Flight for Two and last Saturday we finally got to have our helicopter experience over Nottingham.
Last Friday we spent the day at the Spa at Ye Olde Bell Hotel and had the most wonderfully relaxing day. The spa is located just off the A1 in Nottinghamshire and is surrounding by beautiful countryside making it the perfect location for a relaxing day. The spa at Ye Olde Bell only opened last June so everything is brand spanking new and looks so stylish and beautifully decorated. Read more
We recently spent two amazing weeks in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and had the most amazing time. We booked our holiday through Thomson and stayed at the Sensatori Punta Cana.

A few weeks ago we discovered yet another National Trust property and probably our most favourite to date. Belton House is an absolutely gorgeous property sitting in formal Italian and Dutch gardens and an historic 1300 acre deer park. We visited on a gorgeous Spring day and spent the whole day exploring the beautiful grounds. It was too nice to venture indoors but we will be going back very soon to explore more. Read more

This was our second visit to the National Forest Adventure Park; last time we went it was Easter and we enjoyed lots of Easter activities as well as everything else the park has to offer. The main reason for our visit today was to see Father Christmas in his Winter Wonderland. We love to take the kids to see Father Christmas and usually try to go somewhere different each year and tie it into a day full of fun. Read more
