Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway review Lucas standing next to an orange tractor in the sheds

We love trains, from the moment Lucas wakes up and until the moment he goes to sleep trains aren’t far off the menu!

We were sent a Maxi-Cosi Laika pushchair a couple of weeks ago to review*. I love it, I honestly wish this was available when we couldn’t go anywhere without the pram.

Ninja Adventure, Preston review

| Days Out, Review

A couple of weeks ago, my friend and I went to Ninja Adventure in Preston. I’m not really sure why we decided to go as we aren’t particularly sporty people but when invited* it’s rude to decline and it’s a great opportunity to try something new. We went axe throwing a couple of months ago! […] Read more…
