Capturing Holiday Memories With Tesco Photo On Canvas

Going away to Bluestone a couple of weeks ago was our first holiday as a family of four. So I’ve been going through our photos and finding the best ones to capture onto a canvas. Capturing holiday memories is important to me as our girls are growing away so fast, and I want to treasure every precious moment. Tesco Photo invited me to try out their online service to get canvases of our holiday.

Capturing Holiday Memories With Tesco Photo On Canvas

Using Tesco Photo online was easy, it was choosing which photos to use was the hardest! I went for a template canvas print and a retro style canvas print.

Casdon Chip ‘n’ Pin Till and Shopping Basket Review

We love our role play toys. Baby girl’s latest favourite thing to do is to pretend she works in a shop (like her mummy does!) and goes around with her shopping trolley picking up her play food and heading to the till. We are a huge fan of Casdon role play toys and this latest one doesn’t disappoint! The Chip ‘n’ Pin Till is fantastic for pretend play alongside the shopping basket. A huge thanks to Casdon for sending these over to us to review, you made my little girls day!

Casdon Chip n Pin Till and Shopping Basket Review

The Chip ‘n’ Pin till comes with some pretend boxes and cans of food, but I would recommend getting the Casdon Shopping Basket to go alongside. The basket contains lots of packets and tins, not forgetting a lemon! The items are real life miniatures of the real thing. Yes there is even a box for an Arctic Roll, my fav!

Saturday Catch Up – Are you ready for Winter?

Did you know that today – 29th September is the date most of us Brits get ready for Winter? This weekend millions of Brits will be getting their winter wardrobes out, packing up their gardens and getting the first roast of the season in the oven apparently! We have had such gorgeous weather this past week down in Cornwall the flip-flops and shorts have been out!

Here is a little about our week….

We got the chickens back from mums on Monday after their holiday there while we went away. It was great to get them back. The garden felt eerily empty without them.

On Tuesday we popped on the train and went down to St Ives. It was rammed with people – of the older generation, I may add!!! Some lovely bloke gave up his seat on the train for me but my husband had to stand! We stopped off for fish and chips, well lets just say for half the price we had much better ones out of a chippy van in Wales last week!! Who puts carrot crisps on a plate of fish and chips???

Family-friendly Things to do in North Wales

When opting for a somewhere to visit which all of the family can enjoy, it can be a harder task than first thought. This can mainly be due to having children who have completely different tastes or are different ages. Although a staycation may not be your first thought when planning a holiday or trip somewhere, it can often be a lot easier to spend a few days away somewhere a little closer to home.

Wales has attracted families for years, mainly due to the allure of the outdoors and landscapes just waiting to be explored. North Wales is home to an array of incredible attractions and points of interest which serve as the perfect family day out which everyone will enjoy. So, whether you are looking at staying in Conwy holiday parks or are local to the area, below, you will find a range of family-friendly things to do in North Wales.
