    Meegos and Mini Meegos Series 1 | Collectible Crocheted Soft toys

    Our little Hoopsters are obsessed with collections. I mean they will start to collect anything. My issue is that most of the collectibles they go for are small plastic items that hurt your feet when you find them on the carpet. Today we’re looking at the Meegos and Mini Meegos Collectible set. We were given […]

  • Museum of London Docklands

    Visit to Museum of London Docklands

    We are back from our epic Easter weekend trip to London with sore feet and a lighter wallet.  Our first stop was the Museum of London Docklands. London for us is always worth the effort and we aim to visit at least once a year with the kids.  There is just so much to explore […]

  • Canny Crafty

    Canny Crafty Gosforth

    Our girls love to craft, however, the mess that comes with painting always puts me off.  This is where Canny Crafty Gosforth comes to the rescue.   Kids and adults can get messy with paint, create a unique masterpiece and let Canny Crafty do the cleaning up.  What’s not to love about that? Where is Canny […]

  • Longlox Pamper Party

    Longlox Salon Kids Pamper Party

    Abigail started talking about her 7th birthday party in the Spring, more or less the day after her 6th Birthday.  A Vue cinema party was the first idea but this was soon changed to Build a Bear, swiftly followed by Clip and Climb, trampolining, and Pizza Hut.  The option of no party instead opting for  […]

  • Newcastle Kitchen and Bedroom Company

    Bedroom and Kitchen Home Improvements

    While some people lust over designer shoes, handbags and the latest high-end fashion, for me it’s all about the latest home interiors.  Nothing makes me drool more than a perfect granite kitchen island with a Falcon stove! I really am my Mother’s daughter.  Give me the latest Farrow and Ball wallpaper design and Karndean floor to […]

    Snow White & Seven Dwarfs Review – Tyne Theatre & Opera House

    Another December weekend, another pantomime for the Hoopers.  It’s a good job we love them so much.   This time we had the treat of watching Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House on Westgate Road.  Although we enjoyed last years offering from Newcastle Panto Company, we were excited to […]

  • Enchanted Parks Gateshead

    Enchanted Parks 2017-Saltwell Park Gateshead

    For the second December running, we braved the cold to head out to Saltwell Park for their Enchanted park Inventor’s Ball.  It really was a freezing night and we will all look like the Michelin men the number of layers we had on.  We booked a 7.30pm slot on the Friday evening, as I knew Alan wouldn’t […]

  • Robinson Crusoe at Gala Theatre Durham

    Robinson Crusoe at The Gala Theatre, Durham

    After a lovely wander around Durhams’ shops and cobbled streets on a crisp cold afternoon, we headed to the Gala Theatre for the Press Night of their “Swashbuckling Family Panto” Robinson Crusoe.  The girls asked us to tell them the story of Robinson Crusoe and showing our literary lack of knowledge we weren’t 100% certain.
