Cirque Berserk At The Alexandra Theatre.

Last night we attended the fantastic Cirque Berserk at The Alexandra Theatre. 

I’m always slightly weary about taking the kids to the theatre as Raiden something struggles to cope with his Autism, certain smells, noises and lights he sometimes doesn’t like, so its definitely a gamble when I take him somewhere new. We decided to take the plunge and head to the circus on a school night and I’m so glad we did it was amazing. 

After a sell-out West End run and nationwide tour in 2016, Cirque Berserk! the UK’s biggest theatre-circus spectacular is back. Combining contemporary cirque-style artistry with adrenaline-fuelled stunt action, Cirque Berserk! is a danger-filled spectacle that will amaze audiences of all ages. The show its self was mind blowing the cast are so talented and both children was amazed with all the different acts.


Showcasing the finest in traditional circus thrills and skills, Zippos Cirque Berserk! brings this treasured form of live entertainment bang up-to-date in a jaw dropping spectacular created especially for theatre.



We was on the edge of seats with  legendary motorcycle GLOBE OF DEATH – four motorcyclists reaching speeds of over 60mph within the confines of a locked steel cage. I was on the edge of my seat. 

PLUS experience thrilling acts from over 30 jugglers, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, drummers and daredevil stuntmen. Award-winning clown, Tweedy will also join the troupe - family entertainment at its best!

Both children was still taking about the show this morning, on the way to school and Lexie took the programme in today to show her class. Definitely a show for all ages.

Moving House And eBay Finds.

This week we moved from a two bedroom flat to a three bedroom house. The move went pretty smoothly and now it’s gonna take a while to get things in to places and make it absolutely perfect on how we want it. I know these things take a while and I’m happy to take my time to do room by room. Once rooms are finished I will be doing some before and after‘s as well. 

I wanted to share some eBay finds that I have purchased, eBay can be really hit and miss at times but I’ve been super surprised with some of the quality of the things that have came.

First up are these curtain tie backs, my windows are quite big so I’ve had to go slightly bigger with a few pairs. I didn’t want them all to be dragging on the floor. So when browsing eBay I spotted these. Now I knew they would be really hit or miss, so when they came I was really happy. I think they really match the curtains and I think they look great up. They was £5.75 for two with free delivery.

I was trying to find some pink blackout curtains in a sort of middle pink, we didn’t want a really hot pink or a tint of pink and I managed to find these for a respectable £16.99. I’ve learnt that curtains are super expensive ( especially when you are doing a whole house) They came with some standard tie backs and they was free delivery.

Lexie’s theme is going to be unicorns. So I purchased this wall sticker for £3.99 which is personalised with her name. It was so easy to stick on and I think that it looks great as an added bonus to her room. Again it was free delivery and you can have it in a whole of different colours. 

For the Hall way and stairs I wanted some grey/silver lampshades that would give out quite a bit of light. The kids still have the hall light on at bedtime and if they ever got up to use the toilet in the night they need to see where they are going. These shades are solid , easy to put on and they look really nice. Only £9.99 with free delivery. They come in a heap of colours and to be totally honest if I hadn’t bought most the lampshades already I think they would be in most the rooms.

Lexie isn’t a stranger to Glimmies, she had some fairy ones last year and she was super fascinated with the light up feature. Flair have extended the range with releasing the Glimmies Aquaria GlimSplash with a new design.

Mother’s Day With Baylis & Harding

Stuck for a gift this year, look no further than the fantastic Baylis & Harding. They have bought out a fantastic brand new range for Mother’s Day. Packed with not only bath and body products to keep mom feeling pampered but also essential everyday items too. Pink gin fizz is the latest scent and as per usual it’s fantastic. Thinking about it I don’t think there has been one scent Baylis and Harding have done which I’ve it loved. 

So I moved in to a new house this week, a huge big house that needs lots of little touches that make it feel like home.

Who doesn’t love a super scented candle. Baylis and Harding sent me the lovely Fuzzy Duck trio of candles, they smell gorgeous and look so pretty too. I love the pink and gold designs and it’s just what I needed for the new home.

RRP £15 available from Tesco

Also in the parcel was the Fuzzy Duck Pink Gin Fizz Travel Set. You know when we was plagued with white show last week, the fluffy socks was a lifesaver I think I wore and washed them everyday last week to keep my feet toasty warm. Including a travel cup,( which I’m using for the school run ) & foot balm to keep my feet super soft.

RRP - £10, available from Morrisons
