Exciting News & Our Valentine Bargain

It’s been an exciting week for us with the news we made the list of just eight Legoland Blogger Ambassadors our main highlight.  We are big fans of the attraction so this is HUGE for our little family.  We cannot wait to head there again and let you know all the news straight from the resort.  If you wanted to refresh yourself with our initial application post you can do so by clicking on Legoland Blogger Ambassador.

This weekend I went with my eldest to see the Goosebumps film, I really enjoyed it, Jack Black was great as the eccentric R. L. Stine and the story was full of twists.  It’s a PG but some of the monsters are a bit creepy, so it depends on how you feel your child will cope if you take them to watch it, luckily eldest had his best friend with him, which helped him feel brave.  I was naughty and went for a full on ice cream sundae with the works; whilst my son went in a bit over enthusiastic with the pick an mix it set me back £6.30 just for his sweets!!!


For Valentines hubbie and I treated ourselves to an Iceland meal deal, it was a bargain for £10, the fizzy rose brut drink was very nice and the meal was tasty, well worth the price.  We did not give each other gifts, we always plough our money back into the house renovation or on stuff the kids need.  Guitar lessons started this week so that’s another expense.  I would like it if we could spoil each other on these special occasions and it feels slightly bah humbug not to, but one day it will be different, hopefully our finances will not be tied so much around our property.  But I am glad Iceland have such good deals so even us frugal romantics can get caught up in the spirit of the day and enjoy good food and good company!

We had a new board game to review; Dixit went down very well when we were at my parents for dinner.  We have also had a bubble machine to review, which was perfect timing for half term, as I am grateful for anything to keep my two boys occupied and out of mischief. 

Today we had friends over for a playdate, I feel weary tired now but the boys had a lovely time so that’s what matters!  Now just to think up activities to keep them happy for the next few days…

  15. Oh that's awesome news about being chosen, you must be absolutely thrilled. Legoland is ace, we always have a great time there. We don't do valentine's at all although part of that is because we met on the 13th February so it's like a non-wedding anniversary.
