Things to do with the family this Halloween Weekend!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I can’t believe that the half-term holiday is almost over! 😦

I wanted to take LO and Baby Girl to so many places this week but unfortunately it wasn’t possible as my plans changed quite a lot during the day and it’s hard taking two kids out… well, that’s how I feel anyway. Maybe I’ve also been a bit selfish as I’ve still been going to my morning fitness classes and the gym and even managed to get away one evening to go out for a girly meal with some old friends. *hides face*

I do think I deserve one night early evening off at least… 🙂 

If you’re stuck on Halloween ideas for this weekend, here are a few that I’ve come across for Friday to Sunday. I do apologise for posting this so late… I’ve been procrastinating with this post as I have a few other product reviews lined up which I need to start working on. Also my Polaroid Camera giveaway is still running but will end on Monday 31st October – the winner will be announced the day after. If you haven’t entered already, you can do so here… check out the blog post now

So without further ado, here are the few events around Greenwich and surrounding areas that may be of interest…

I hope that is just enough to get you by this lovely weekend which is set to be dry and a little bit sunny (we can only hope!)… LO and I will be heading out to Mudchute farm with my sister and my nephew Lils, then hopefully we will be able to make it to Discover for the weekend. If not, Odeon Kids is brilliant on the weekends (£2.50 per ticket) and at Odeon Greenwich, they’re showing The Secret Life of Pets, The BFG and Pete’s Dragon.

Have a great weekend everyone! xx
