Festival of Lights at Longleat


On Sunday we went along to the Festival of Lights at Longleat. We are so lucky that its only ten minutes down the road and that we live right next door to it.

I managed to get our two adult tickets free with our Tesco Clubcard points and Sonny was free as he is under the age of 3.

We didn’t want to spend all day there as it was a cold day and I wanted Sonny to have a morning nap before we headed over. We only needed to get there early if we wanted to do the safari which we didn’t want to do on this visit.

We arrived at about 2pm and headed to see all the animals. Sonny loved watching the penguins being fed. It was so busy everywhere  it was hard to see the animals and have a nice walk round, so we quickly walked round then headed to find the under 5's park.

Sonny loved the under 5's park especially the trampolines in the floor. He just wanted to bounce with the other children’s playing on them.


We then grabbed a coffee in Costa which took forever because it was also really busy. After this me and Sonny went to the mirror maze. That was funny as Sonny was so confused but loving it at the same time.

When the lights switched on we grabbed a mulled wine (yum) then headed towards the lights. I love mulled wine.

Sonny was really grumpy when we got to the lights and really played up. I don’t think he liked the crowds of people and it was pretty cold as well. I thought he was going to love them but he didn’t show any interest in them.




Me and Darren thought the lights were okay but won’t be rushing back next year to see them. It’s definitely worth going to visit them once to experience them.

Charity at Christmas | My homeless gifts



Charity at Christmas | My homeless gifts
This year I have decided to do more for charity at Christmas. I made a box for the Operation Christmas Child appeal. I made a lovely box up for a boy age 2-4. I made a video all about this over on my YouTube channel. Follow the link below to watch this.
I then found out about boxes you could make up for the homeless in the Bristol area and found out my work place was getting involved with delivering the boxes. I loved getting involved with this and started my box straight away.
I made a box for a homeless lady. Here is a list of what was inside my box
  • Pastel Blue bobble hat
  • Cosy Christmas socks
  • Americano coffee
  • Box of tomato cup soups
  • 4 Bars of chocolate
  • Pot noodle
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Shower cream
I also added a little note to say Merry Christmas signing it from all the family.
I hope that the lady who gets my box really enjoys receiving it and loves everything inside.
I will defiantly be involved in the Christmas shoe box appeals again next year. It’s such a great way to give to people who don’t get Christmas presents.

Weekend Tot Style #2 I'M COOL



Weekend Tot Style #2 I'M COOL
 
 
How cute is this boy dressed all in his new Zara clothing. His shoes are from Matalan and the jumper and leggings are from Zara boys. I love Zara clothing there are reasonably prices and such good quality.
We went out to the park. He wore his Primark body warmer and hat.
I love dressing Sonny in his cool clothes. I thought dressing a boy would be so boring. How wrong was I.
