Making monsters

Monday has come round so quickly once again. This morning we headed off to the local library. We listened to two great stories about monsters and trolls so our craft was making trolls!


I think they look a little like jelly babies!


For once this wasn’t a craft we could bring home to show Daddy. Instead we added it to the Mythical Maze display at the library. It’s a Summer Reading Challenge that Big Brother has signed up to!

Planes 2 Fire and Rescue

Today we headed off to The Odeon in Leicester Square for the preview of Planes 2 Fire & Rescue. Any one who knows my children will know what huge Disney fans they are. They both loved Planes so we had high expectations for Planes 2. We managed to keep our plans a secret until we were outside the cinema – the huge posters and fire engine gave the game away!

There were lots of activities laid on to keep the children occupied before the gala screening. We had our photos taken with Dusty too!


The film was fabulous and both my children loved it! In fact Big Brother has already told me he wants to go and see it again and wants Father Christmas to bring him the DVD for Christmas!

When world-famous air racer Dusty learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his team, a bunch of all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire, and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero.

After our exciting morning at the cinema we treated ourselves to lunch at Planet Hollywood. Big Brother had the biggest sundae I’ve ever seen and did a pretty good job of demolishing it. After all that eating we walked to Hamleys via Regent Street (which was closed to traffic for the day!). We sat at the Lego bus stop and had a good look at every single toy in Hamleys – but managed to walk away without spending anything.

Trying to keep cool

We’re not enjoying this heat wave at the moment, it is so difficult to keep cool. So we were quite happy to head off to Brent Cross for some shopping and air conditioning for the day. We haven’t been for ages and it was lovely to buy lots of lovely clothes for the children (Cars for Big Brother, Tinkerbell and Frozen for Little Sis).

We were spoilt for choice for somewhere to eat but eventually picked Leon. Little Sis loved her Fish Finger Rice Box :)
