Halloween Fun πŸŽƒ

I Love Autumn & Halloween… here’s what we got up to !

We went out for the day, to a nearby farm!

It was brilliant.

There was SO much to do.. we made wands, got sorted into our Hogwarts house, had a spooky trailer ride, explored the spooky maze, picked and decorated pumpkins, pettee guinea pigs & rabbits, looked at loads of other animals and had a bug trailer ride.

A great family day out, themed really well and with lots of fun to be had.

We had a fun little family Halloween party at my sisters house.s

She set up some fun activities for them, we also had a buffet of party food, spooky tunes and Halloween pass the parcel.


Me & Tim always do a few Halloween traditions at home – these include carving a pumpkin (we’ve done one every year that we’ve been together) and I make us ‘Spooky Sausages’ which are meant to look like mummies.

I also like to watch horror films but Tim isn’t too keen on those so thats usually just me haha

Some of my favourites are Scream, Halloween, Hocus Pocus, Nightmare before Christmas and Nightmare on Elm St.


Our local cinema was showing some Halloween classics on Halloween.

Me and my Twin sister Sarah always watch horror films together so we went along and watched the original Scream! I can’t believe its the 25th Anniversay 😱

Scream is my favourite ‘Scary Movie’ and it was cool to watch it on the big screen.


What did you get up to this Halloween?

Do you have any traditions??


Until Next Time,

Holiblog:Disneyland Paris🌟 The Parks πŸŽ πŸŽ’🎑

This second edition of holiblog is all things Disney parks.

There are two parks at Disneyland Paris, accessed via Disney village.

Disney village is so magical in itself, with it’s fun and tasty treats and happy Disney tunes on loop. It is lined with Disney shops and lots of cool eateries too.

It even has a cinema.


The two parks are Disneyland & Disney Studios.

Disneyland is akin to Magic Kingdom in Florida, it houses Main Street USA and the Disney castle, although this Disney castle is Auroras, in stead of Cinderellas. I actually love this, it’s so cool that they are different ones.

Disney Studios is much like Hollywood Studios in Florida. It has all the Studio style buildings and American streets.


🌟 Disneyland 🏰


This park is the bigger of the two and is home to classic rides such as The Pirates of the Carribean, Phantom Manor, Thunder Mountain, Hyperspace Mountain, The Carousel and much more!

The Disney illuminations take place at the Disneyland park. The lights show, fireworks ans music were amazing.


🌟 Disney Studios 🎬


Disney Studios is home to classic rides such as Rocking Rollercoaster Ft Aerosmith, Tower of terror and Toy Story land. Toy Story land was awesome and had some cool and different rides to the one in Florida.

We met loads of Characters here that we needed to tick off our list, the rest of the crew, Donald Duck & Pluto.

I also got to meet Goofy again 😁 My fave!


& just look at that Disney Castle!! 🏰πŸ₯Ώ

So pretty πŸ’– So magical 🌟


It really is one of the most magical places on earth!

Until next time,

🐣Easter Activities for kids!

Hi guys!

This blog post is just a few simple ideas for you to keep the kiddies entertained over the Easter weekend.

Even if you don’t celebrate Easter in the traditional sense (I don’t either!) It is still lovely to make the most of a long weekend and some family time.

But, of course with kiddies it can be hard to keep them entertained and if you are having people over for the Easter weekend or Easter Sunday then you may need to get them out from under your feet whilst the prep takes place!

Well fear not, because I have some ideas for you that will keep them busy and are lots of fun!


Let’s take a look!


1. A Easter Egg Hunt


Cadburys & Nestle both have Easter egg hunt packs out atm as well as places such as Aldi & Lidl. They come with lots of eggs (depending on the size of the hunt you want and some prizes for the end.

You can also get Easter egg Hunt packs that have clues and signs included in them which is great if you have older children, to add a bit of challenge to your hunt.

I’ve seen these in Asda and discount stores such as B&M.


2. Easter arts & crafts


These monthly children’s magazines are great for a bit of easy art and craft and they come bursting with resources!

They are a bit pricey but, trust me they last! I bought this one for my nephews and we made two things each and there is loads left!! So one issue goes a long way and they are really easy, fun & varied.

You could also look online (Pinterest!!) for come easy craft ideas that use your recycling.

Kids love a bit of junk modelling.


3. Easter baking


Kids (& adults) love getting involved in a bit of baking, especially when it involves a tasty treat at the end!!

Check out some recipes here .

These are all really child friendly, quick, easy and the recipes use alot of the same ingredients! So easy on the purse too.


4. A Easter film


Why not create your own ‘cinema’ for a rainy day activity?!?

Pop on an Easter Film, grab some comfies, a blanket and of course some Easter choc snacks or any bakes you have created, and just enjoy a nice, chilled film together. Netflix or Easter specials of their favourite shows are great for this.

During the school holidays local cinemas such as Cineworld usually put on more ‘Movies for juniors’ showings which are a MUCH cheaper way of taking the kids to the cinema, so look out for those too πŸ˜€


5. A Nature walk/visiting the farm


A walk is a great way to enjoy and talk about the Spring and all the beautiful flowers and changes taking place.

Plus, on a nice day (let’s keep our fingers crossed for some) a bit of fresh air and a run around is great for the kiddies.

Visitng a farm is also great at this time of year as there are lots of baby animals to see and learn about too! Great experiences.


🌷 I hope this helps & have fun whatever you do 🐰

Happy Easter!


Until next time,

Blogmas Day Four: A festive day out πŸŽ„πŸš‚

Last weekend me, my husband Tim, twin sister Sarah and her husband Dan and kiddies, Noah & Casey went away for a winter weekend away.

We stayed at Rose Farm in Great Yarmouth, in a lovely little static caravan.

It was lovely and reminded me of our family holidays from years gone by.

One of our activities on the Saturday was a little railway journey and it felt really festive.

There was a little winter chill in the air, just enough to need to wrap up all cosy, which added to the festive feels.

We went on the Bure Railway from Wroxham to Aylesham and it was just lovely. The boys really enjoyed themselves.

To add a little extra festive cheer, there were loads of Christmas decorations.

And when we got to Aylsham there was a Santa’s grotto as well as even more lights.

So festive! πŸŽ„πŸŽπŸŽ…β›„

It was a lovely weekend and it made us all feel really ready to start having lots of festive fun days. Bring on the next Christmas activity.

Until next time,

21 days to go!

A long weekend of sunshine πŸŒž

What a lovely bank holiday weekend we’ve just had here in the East of England. Weather like this doesn’t happen that often and as soon as it does boy do we know… out come the flip flops, shorts & Instagramed blue sky pictures! But isn’t it great!! & perfect coupled with a extra long weekend.

Here is how I spent the Bank holiday weekend, in the sun.

Saturday 5th

A sunny (& V.hot) Parkrun in the park.

A stroll to the local park and a go on the swings, followed by a drink in a cafe along the waterfront.

Sunday 6th

Watching the football, in the sunshine, followed by a lovely sunny picnic with my husband Tim, sister Sarah & nephew’s Noah & Casey. We had some yummy food, relaxed in the sun, played and stopped for a Starbucks.

Monday 7th

Lunch in the sunshine at one of our favourite local eateries. Pretending we are in Italy.

A drink in a cafe on the waterfront with Tim, my mum and dad. Outside in the sunshine, soaking up the last of the sun and enjoying the extra day off work!

I hope you were able to get out in the sun & make the most of that extra vitamin D 🌞

What did you guys get up to at the weekend?

Any plans for the next May bank holiday?

Until next time,

EASTER! 🌼🐣πŸ₯

I havn’t done a blog post about something I’ve done in ages! I love reading those sort of posts myself (So I hope you guys do too!) Plus they are nice to look back on and reminisce. 

My hubby had Friday off of course which was a nice treat so we decided to make the most of the day and do as much as we could together and it was soooo nice.

Good Friday 

So we started off the day with a super yummy cooked brekky, a lovely Friday treat as usually we would both be at work and wouldn’t have time for such an indulgent breakfast.

After that we didn’t have long before the film we had decided to see at the cinema was starting (Beauty & the Beast!!!πŸ₯€) As we live close to our local cinema and the sun was shining we decided to walk.
Of course the film was amazing (I’d already seen it once!) But Tim also enjoyed it too.

We were getting a bit peckish again by the time the film had finished so we had a cheeky Nandos, because why not! It’s a bank HOLIDAY after all, treat yo self!

& the fun didn’t stop there, oh no. Next stop was back home for a spot of Harry Potter Monopoly (Yes you heard right!) 
My very clever and lovely husband designed and made this for me for my birthday a few years ago as offical Harry Potter Monopoly doesnt exist. It’s amazing.

In the evening we decided to grab a drive thru Starbucks from the new one in our hometown and head to our local bowling alley. The Starbucks was beaut. πŸ‘Œβ˜• 

We had three games of bowling (Tim won best of three) and then we headed home.

A very GOOD Friday! (Sorry, not sorry!)

Easter Weekend 

Saturday

We completed our usual 5k Parkrun first thing Saturday morning, insert horrendous picture here ⬇

Once we had done that we went our separate ways to freshen up and get ready to go to Lowestoft. Tim’s mum & Dad have a holiday flat there so we are staying for the Easter weekend. 

We arrived around 2 o clock and settled in before heading to the shops to grab some dinner supplies. 

We then headed to the beach for a play & the arcades too!!!!! Seriously coooool.

Later on Me & Noah got creative and made some yummy chocolate Eatser treats…

& we cooked and ate dinner, watched BGT and played games in the evening 🎲

Easter Sunday 

First things first, EASTER EGGS!! 

We discovered the little cafe over the road from the flat is open on Easter Sunday so we headed over for breakfast… 

…unfortunately everyone else had the same idea!! Looks like they are the only place open for business on Easter Sunday, in Lowestoft.

Whilst we waited for our food we took a walk!
Oh I do like to stroll along the prom prom prom 🐚🌞

Once we were suitably full and wind swept we headed back for more Easter frivolity ie an Egg hunt & an Egg and spoon race.

For the rest of the afternoon we chilled out before heading back home.

Our family has an Easter tradition of a Chinese takeaway in the evening on Easter Sunday (Yeah it’s random I know) Don’t hate us cause you ain’t us! 

Jealous, right?! I love a family tradition. 


What do you guys do for Easter? 

Happy Easter! πŸ₯🐣🐰

Until next time,

My day off!Β 

I love watching daily vlogs on Youtube so I thought I would do a blog post about my day!

Our school had a PD day on Friday which meant a 3 day weekend! YES!!

There was only one way to start that day, lazing in bed followed by a trip to the Tesco below our flat to pick up breakfast.

I’m loving that our Tesco now has a Costa coffee machine! Caramel latte all the way β˜•

I also picked up some sausages, eggs and mushrooms for breakfast πŸ˜‹

Delicious!

I spent the rest of the morning not doing very much and catching up on programmes that I had fallen behind with (4 weeks of Home & Away to watch πŸ™ˆ)

In the afternoon I walked into town to meet my sister Sarah and my nephews Noah & Casey.

We did a spot of Christmas shopping first…

It was the first time I had seen the Christmas lights on and it felt very christmassy.

After that we headed to the swimming pool. Noah & Casey both love swimming and I’ve only been once with Casey so it was nice to go in with him again β™‘

Little cutie! although his face says why have you laid me down here! πŸ™Š

After lots of splashing, floating, slide and wave machine fun we got out and once we were dressed we decided to head to Costa to warm up.

Me and Sarah both got our favourite festive drink, the mint hot chocolate.

I also got their lemon tart too, it’s so yummy and zingy.

Sarah tried their festive gingerbread muffin which has a cute iced gingerbread man on top…

A fun way to spend my day off and I love that I still have 2 days left before I’m back to work πŸ™†

P.s, I can’t not mention… IT’S A MONTH UNTIL CHRISTMAS #sorrynotsorry 

Until next time,

Roseanne πŸ™‚
