A 1950’s Vision of the Future – Atomium with Some Toddlers

Pre-kiddos we used to go every year to Brussels – chips, chocolate and beer – it’s pretty much the ideal weekend break. And only 2 hours away by train, it’s closer than visiting most places in the UK. So we decided it would be nice to visit friends with some similarly aged kids and show […]

Going Off-The-Chain Itailian in Windsor – Francesco’s

Every time I have ever ended up hunting for dinner in Windsor, it has involved trapsing around door-to-door looking for somewhere to seat 8 with no notice on a Saturday, with very little luck. We usually end up with grumpy kids carrying pushchairs upstairs and feeling a little disheartened by a mediocre faux-Italian menu. SO […]

The House of Magic – Cats, magic, should be the perfect Weasel film

After weeks of sweltering weather and playing in gardens, parks and country houses, we thought we might have a break and go to the cinema. There are actually quite a few kids’ films on at the moment, being summer holidays and all, but Weasel went for The House of Magic due to her obsession with […]

Private Boat Rides in the Rain at Dapdune Wharf

Shamefully I have never visited Dapdune Wharf, a National Trust property/canal/boat thing in the middle of Guildford. It’s one of those places I’ve always meant to go to, but its proximity was almost the issue. It will always be there right? But having totally forgot to plan anything from my Weasel day (Fridays the Ninja […]

The Lego Movie with a Toddler

With Weasel’s uncle visiting, Husband had an excuse to take a Friday off and all head off to the cinema to see the Lego Movie. I’m pretty sure the three of us were looking forward to it more than Weasel was; she would have probably have preferred to go see the Tinker Bell film again […]

Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy and Lots of Popcorn

With our newly found freedom to go to the cinema again, Weasel and I headed off post-gymnastics on Friday to see the new Tinker Bell film, Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy on opening day. My choice would have been the new Lego film, but Husband would be none too pleased if we saw that […]

Garden Centres – Cakes, ‘Puppies’ and Potted-Plants

Slightly rainy Saturday? Too chicken to brave a softplay on a drizzled weekend? Out of fish food/greeting cards/Shih Tzu calendars/random sweets in jars/shit you never knew you wanted? Excellent, garden centre it is then. We did genuinely need fish food and a 2014 calendar (on sale for 50p, whoop whoop!), so the garden centre with […]
