Review: Bristol Zoo Gardens Dinomania

Bristol Zoo Gardens Dinomania

A couple of weeks ago we had a lovely family day out at Bristol Zoo Gardens. We took along my cousin as well as he had been asking my aunt and uncle to take him. We had actually planned to go the previous week but it rained non-stop, plus we overslept. As it turned out, the weather was much the same on the day we did go! But not to worry, we enjoyed ourselves anyway and it was nice for… Continue Reading “Review: Bristol Zoo Gardens Dinomania”

Climbing {The Ordinary Moments}

Cheeky Chap is utterly fearless. He may lack confidence in many areas but climbing and exploring is not one of them.

One Boy and His Dog

Last year my sister and her partner got a rescue dog. As a young pup, Riddler used to be somewhat excitable. The first few times Cheeky Chap met him I think he was quite taken aback by him.¬†With time and training, Riddler has calmed down a little but is still definitely a character. For around six months, the husband walked Riddler twice a week when both my sister and her partner worked. During the school holidays, Cheeky Chap would join… Continue Reading “One Boy and His Dog”
