The Worst Witch at Birmingham Hippodrome

[Ad-Review] Mildred Hubble flew onto the stage at the Birmingham Hippodrome last night for the opening performance of The Worst Witch. As a child, I loved The Worst Witch stories by Jill Murphy, and I would watch the movie over and over. I couldn’t wait to see how the story was brought to life on stage and introduce Mini to the tales too. The Worst Witch portrays the story of Mildred Hubble, a normal girl who finds herself mistakenly at Miss Cackle’s Academy for witches. Accident prone Mildred stumbles her way through term, making firm friendships along the way with…

I had been wanting to visit Coombe Mill Farm in Cornwall since hearing about it from my friend Jo at Mummy Needs Wine. We decided that it would be ideal for our Easter holidays. As soon as I told Mini we were going and showed her the website, she couldn’t stop asking when we were going. She was desperate to meet the animals and get to help out during the farm feed runs. Coombe Mill is around a 3.5 hour drive for us, without any stops. I was not looking forward to the journey, on a bank holiday weekend. However,…

The Camel Trail, Cornwall Family Cycling Adventure

The Camel Trail – Family Bike Ride The Camel Trail in North Cornwall is an 18 mile cycle track that is a perfect place for a family bike ride. The trail is formed from a disused railway making it smooth, and mostly level and flat, ideal for cycling with little ones. During our Easter holidays to Coombe Mill Farm, we were lucky to be only a short drive away from The Camel Trail. Mr Mack had signed up to the Birmingham Velo, a 100 mile bike challenge, so we thought it would be a good idea to help him get…
