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.
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
Today we headed to Warwick Castle for some spooky Halloween fun. This was our first visit to Warwick Castle and we were very impressed with what we saw and would love to go back to discover more in future.
This half term (22-31 Oct) Warwick castle has been transformed into The Haunted Castle with six new spine tingling attractions. To make it even more scary Warwick Castle is open until 9pm each night too!
The last (but by no means the least) park we visited during our week in Florida was Discovery Cove, which is just the most amazing place to visit!

Discovery Cove is an all-inclusive day out so once inside you don’t have to worry about a thing. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks for the day are included. Also covered are wetsuits, snorkelling gear, towels, lockers, sunscreen and self-parking. Read more
