Beaver 

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

Beaver
Because DS1 got chosen to look after the cuddly beaver all week from Scouts. So, we have been to Coombe Abbey (a beautiful park near where I live) on an adventure at the weekend to take some photos for Scouts. It was lovely to have a walk in the woods in Autumn, so many beautiful trees!

Of course at the weekend it was bonfire night and we saw so many beautiful, big fireworks. I love the colours, not so much the bang as I have sensitive ears. We had hot dogs,  I am glad we stayed at home as it was so blooming cold,  brrrr. We live up on 16th floor so  lucky to see all the fireworks. I do miss an actual bonfire, I just think they are beautiful to watch burning away, maybe one day we can when we move to a house, fingers crossed.

hope you have had a good week!

Cheers for reading X

Fun 

Hey Readers,

My word of the week is:
because we have done same fun things during this week. We went to the cinema to see Paw Patrol, which made my son super happy, as he has been begging for ages. We went to the Showcase with there fancy recliner seats,  makes the experience so much more comfy.
For Halloween we visited a pumpkin patch and picked a MASSIVE pumpkin. Then we carved and the boys love it when it get lit every night with tea lights in. I think they are going be sad when we have to throw it away. The boys helped decorate the home with spooky decorations and the eldest went to a Halloween fancy dress.

Hope you had a fun week!

Paw Patrol at the cinema

Hey readers,

On Saturday me and the hubby took the boys (4 &6) to our local Showcase Cinema De Lux to watch Paw Patrol:Big Screen Tails, 60 minute special. During the week Showcase hosted 25 unique events and films celebrating art, film and music.

I normally don’t have the funds for this type of activity but due to getting free tickets and it being half term who could resist anything to entertain your little darlings.
I like this cinema (I have wrote about the cinema before here) because it is quiet due to it  being further away from the city centre.

The cinema is really clean and modern with the design. It also was not crowded or loud which helps as my eldest and myself struggle with these types of issues.
There was free face paint on the day, which my children loved.  There was no ques which makes the experience a lot more pleasant. This was a big hit for both boys and added to the enjoyment of the event.

The screening itself was really comfortable. The film was just over an hour so having reclined seats helped settle my boys. There was plenty of room space and because it is a kid screening I think parents like myself you don’t feel self-conscious or worry about the noise.

Husband noted that the leather seats could do with a wipe with proprietary  leather treatment where the  back and seat meet because you could hear some crazy creaking from leather on leather as people adjusted their seats mid film – not a problem with family films but may be a bit off putting with a thriller.

I liked the fact that the screening was a shorter film as both my boys struggle a bit with concentration, so that was a really positive and no arguments again added to a good time.

The lightening of the auditorium I loved as it was not overpowering and the subtle blue lights at the side of the walls was excellent in the design aspect of the experience. Also, I found the volume of the film perfect. Normally when going to the cinema it is super loud, which worried me a bit as my eldest is really sensitive to hearing and could potentially cause a meltdown (autism).

The boys loved the experience and felt very comfortable. I definitely recommend going to go to the cinema with young children.
