Mess Free Pumpkin Decorating Ideas for Halloween.

It’s October which means pumpkins and pumpkin patch photos have flooded onto social media. Shops are full of pumpkin carving kits, halloween decorations and costumes. It’s a fun time of year. However, for children with sensory issues…or who simply don’t like messy activities it can be full of pressure too. Carving a pumpkin is fun…

Days Out: Halloween at Hollow Tree Farm, Suffolk.

We’re currently on half term and as it’s J’s first one since starting school in September, I plan to make the most of this time off with him. Our first stop this week has been Hollow Tree Farm in Suffolk. We have visited a few times over the last two years and each time we…

Big Fun in a Little City: Our role play adventures (review).

This week we had the pleasure of popping to Little City – West Suffolk (there are other Little City’s available) for a playdate with a friend and her little girl. We decided to meet up at this play group for under 5’s as it was something different to where we usually go. Little City is…

Days out: Newmarket Memorial Park

As we’ve had such lovely weather we decided to go and try out the Memorial Park Gardens in Newmarket, Suffolk. There’s nearby parking, close to town centre and an onsite refreshment shack.

Days Out for under £20: Planet Laser (Suffolk)

Today was the first proper rainy day we’ve had all summer. It was definitely an ‘indoor day’. Soft play was out of the question as it would be rammed and frankly I didn’t want to pay a fortune. Swimming was the same. So we went to J’s favourite place…Planet Laser. The reason I love Planet…

Days out: Suffolk Super Con 2018…Sci-fi lovers paradise!

We’ve just got back from spending the morning at Suffolk Super Con 2018. This is the first convention J has ever been too but as you know from our post about J’s obsession with Star Wars, we couldn’t miss this! I asked J who he’d like to dress up as. He obviously chose Kylo Ren….

Autism and Festivals: A day out at Strawberry Fair, Cambridge…

Today is one of my favourite days of the year…the first Saturday of June. This means it was Strawberry Fair! I have been to Cambridge’s Strawberry Fair almost every year since I was 18. When I was younger it was all about the music, having drinks with friends and exploring the crafts stalls (including finding…

Review: Stonham Barns Soft Play (Suffolk)

Today we went off to explore a new soft play centre. I have been wanting to visit Stonham Barns for ages. We only had time to visit the soft play today but Stonham Barns has so much. It’s like it’s own little village. The centre itself was easy to find and had a secure entry…
