On Sunday we decided we’d venture out into the wilds, in search of dinosaurs. Rumours circulated that the prehistoric beasts had found themselves at home at Bents Garden Centre in Warrington, and the hunt was on.

This weekend, the boys had the pleasure of visiting a few museums on The Wirral – I stayed at home with Teddy as the weather here in the UK is incredibly bitter at the moment and I don’t feel taking him out is in his best interests until it warms up a little. First on their list was the U-Boat…

Located on the tip of the Wirral peninsula, New Brighton is home to a beach as well as the usual beach-front necessities. Each section of the beach is heavily monitored by lifeguards,…

This weekend was the highly anticipated Newton-le-Willows town show – I blogged about last years offering here, and this year didn’t disappoint. We arrived soon after 11, and started our day at the bandstand. We didn’t get any photographs of The Davies Sisters who we sat and enjoyed for a while – but they do feature in the vlog of…

This week we had some much needed couple time – we ended up travelling to Blackpool and vlogging the experience (which you can view here) – but we had some photographs too, and I don’t want them to go to waste. The whole town was in holiday mode! Half term was here and the weather wasn’t letting any of us…
