Last Friday, we went to check out Dinotropolis Adventure Park which opened at Bluewater last month. Autumn loved dinosaurs, so as soon as I heard about it I thought she’d enjoy it. In fact, the night before, we’d had dinner at neighbouring Rosa’s Thai Cafe and she’d been excitedly shouting “DINOSAUR!” at the advert on the wall! As we headed to our booking at 2pm, we were looking forward to some lunch and dinosaur themed fun. View Post
Last week we accepted our invitation to review Rosa’s Thai Cafe, which has recently opened at Bluewater. I really enjoy Thai food and have always felt like Bluewater was missing a Thai restaurant, so it’s great that that has now been rectified. Located next door to the cinema and Dinotropolis, it is ideally positioned for a date with dinner and a film or a day out with children. That said, our main concern before putting it to the test was our 2 year old daughter Autumn. She had never eaten Thai food before! View Post
I was aware of Shaken Udder’s milkshakes for a good couple of years before I met them at a local blogging convention last autumn. The fun cartoon cows on the bottles were what drew me to them first. However, the more I learn about the company and these milkshakes, the more I love them! If you’re a long-term reader of my blog, you’ll know that I enjoy supporting local businesses. As these guys are only an hour up the road from me, across the Thames in Essex, it just adds to their appeal for me. Anyway, that’s enough of my waffling. Let’s get down to what you want to hear about…the milkshake!
Excitement is mounting about the semi-final of Strictly Come Dancing this weekend. We know who our semi-finalists are, and now we know what dances they’ll do to what music. The competition is close and we can only guess who will be victoriously holding that glitterball trophy on Saturday 15th December. Fortunately, once the final sequinned dress has left the stage at the grand final, the fun can still continue! The Strictly Come Dancing Board Game is a great game to play with all the family over Christmas to relinquish your post-Strictly blues. View Post
Have you been to see Fantastic Beasts: The Crime of Grindelwald yet? We went to see it at a local cinema’s premier a couple of days ahead of the release date and thought it was great! I’ve been a big Harry Potter fan since I was 8. As such, this continuation of the franchise is very welcome to me. The nifflers in the latest film were so cute! I was delighted when Kids @ Play Toys sent us some adorable plushies to review! View Post
