We visited Enginuity, which is a science museum in Ironbridge, (Telford, Shropshire) during this half term and is one of ten museums in the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage site. We are incredibly lucky to have these museums on our doorstep and want to make use of what our great town has to offer.
I have been looking forward to this half term for weeks, not only because we have all needed a break and time off together for a while but also because the weather is slowly picking up and I am wanting to do more with Ellie.

Life isn't always Instagram friendly and there are certain things you don't share on there to be seen to the world. Nobody wants reality on IG do they?
I have finally given in our interest form to put Ellie's name down for nursery. I found it such a stressful task, I have said from the start I wanted Ellie to attend the nursery linked to the primary school I work at mainly because the staff are amazing, I know them and I know… Continue reading Nursery

Tickets purchased online are actually cheaper than paying when you get there and can be purchased right up until 9:30 the morning you are planning your trip which… Continue reading Chester Zoo with a toddler.
And just like that my second child is ONE! I'm not sure where the last year has gone to be honest with you. The past week has been even more hectic than usual and im finally starting to find my feet again and catch up on everything. I had planned to have written three blog… Continue reading First birthday
