This post is an entry for BritMums #MamiaDaysOut Linky Challenge, sponsored by Aldi Mamia.

#MamiaDaysOut hamper, a large wicker basket filled with Mamia blackcurrant spring water, fruit puree pouches and rice cakes


Aldi kindly sent us a hamper of snacks for Lucas to enjoy on a day out. I should have taken the photo before Lucas got his mits on the fruit pots! The hamper included their award-winning 100% organic baby food which starts at just 59p, and includes fruit and savoury pouches, fruit pots, rice cakes, and flavoured spring water.

I decided to take Lucas to the Fairy Glen as we hadn’t been before. Fairy Glen has been described as ‘a valley with spectacular waterfalls and cliff faces. These features, interspersed within the ancient broadleaved woodland, make Fairy Glen one of the most picturesque woodlands in the borough.

Designated as a Biological Heritage Site for its oak, birch, ash and alder, the site boasts a rich and mature woodland biodiversity. There is a wide variety of flora growing at the site and, depending on the season, the woodland floor may be covered with bluebells, wild garlic, ferns, and red campion.’

Doesn’t it sound wonderful? I don’t think we must have walked far enough because all we saw was an autumnal woodland with leaves everywhere and unfortunately nothing special. I apologised to Lucas for a rubbish day out but at least we had lovely snacks to keep us going x
