Milkshake Live: The Magic Story…

Milkshake TV has been in our lives for a loooooong time. When J was little(r) and would be awake at 6am I would bring him in bed with me, put on Channel 5 and snooze a bit longer.  Current favourites are: Blaze and the Monsters Machines, Fireman Sam, Whispa and Paw Patrol. However, his most…

Surviving the cinema with a toddler…Cars 3

J is obsessed with cars. Well actually all types of vehicles. If it has wheels then he is happy. He has always loved the Car movies and either the first or second film is often on in the background. So when the adverts for Cars 3 came on the tv, J would get upset that…

Out and About: Soft play for £2!!! Review of Planet Laser.

Our Hollow Tree adventure…a day at the farm.

Today we visited Hollow Tree farm in Suffolk. This is a new place for us but we’d heard lovely things so thought we’d go for a try. Firstly, taking J anywhere requires FBI level investigation skills. I checked: Distance (I’m not driving far away to find it sets him off and we have to come…
