Actions Stations at Hamleys

This morning we were invited along to Hamleys to see a preview of the Fireman Sam DVD Heroes of the Storm which is set for nationwide release on 21st September. The children loved the film which features Fireman Sam and an all new updated Pontypandy Fire Station. There are also 2 new team members and a new 6 wheeled boat vehicle.


After the film we went downstairs to wait for Fireman Sam to arrive which was very exciting.

Then we had a good look round every single floor of Hamleys. The children were treated to a small toy for being so well behaved.

A trip to fruit towers

We received an invitation to Innocent fruit towers to learn more about smoothies and why they are good for you. We got to visit some new stations including Wood Lane

and Ladbroke Grove. It was sunny for once!

We arrived at fruit towers and got straight to work making our own smoothie.

The children loved their visit. As well as making smoothies they had fun making fruit and veg heads, painting using fruit and veg and playing on the coconut shy.


We were also able to sample the brand new fruit & veg smoothies which are shortly hitting the shelves.


We had a lovely time and the children really want to go back and visit again soon!

A day at Dawlish Warren

We’ve been enjoying our holiday in Devon. Today we spent some time at Dawlish Warren, showing Grandad the kite we made whilst we were at Nanny’s earlier in the holiday.

The children went on some of the rides. Big Brother favoured the sporty looking racing cars whilst Little Sis wanted to go on the roller coaster with Daddy.


They both enjoyed the pirate boats where they joined forces to get everyone as wet as possible with the water guns. They finished off in the more sedate tea cup ride. Big Brother as especially happy to pick one decorated with his favourite character, Lightning McQueen.
