Plant and Play Wildlife Garden

1004946_678543712189484_1998318354_n
Today both mum and I were off and we took my gorgeous little niece for the day. We thought we would do something different that wouldn’t cost a small fortune. Most places to take children are free for under 2’s but then the adult prices are ridiculous! Drawing a bit of a blank I asked other mums on Facebook, lots of options to chose from, however a lot she has already done over the last couple of weeks. Although there was one that caught my eye that I had seen people talk about but I hadn’t been to myself, Plant and Play Wildlife Garden in Bangor. Fantastic, it was close by, the little lady went free as she is under 2, for mum and I it was £3.50 each and a big bonus was that it was outdoors!


So what is Plant and Play Wildlife Garden?
‘Plant & Play Wildlife Garden is an educational garden, growing and teaching about seasonal fruit and vegetables. This business will host horticultural/conservation workshops and training sessions for adults, themed children’s birthday parties and a variety of seasonal events. There will also be raised beds, suitable for disabled access, for rent including a selection of vegetables. There will be an on site shop where customers can purchase gardening and nature related second-hand books, seasonal plants and vegetables and (made-to-order) hand-carved unique garden furniture. Training and educational activities are available for all age groups. Off site services also available, i.e. school visits, wildlife garden design and creation, planting and maintenance of living willow fencing/domes.’

I have to say the three of us had a total ball this morning! We would 100% recommend a trip to Plant and Play Wildlife Garden with your little ones. Everything was planned and provided for us, Vikki was fantastic! She made the learning fun and it was designed for every age and ability, today’s age ranges of children were 1 – 6. The children had loads of fun playing, learning and exploring both indoors and outdoors, from crafting to playing games on the grass area. Vikki was amazing with the children, our little lady just loved her, she has a great nature with the children and has them glued. I will definitely be heading back with my friends and their kids and the little lady loved it so much that her Granny is thinking of taking her again on Monday!

Summer holidays

wpid-img_20140716_213006.jpg
Since the start of July I have been on my Summer hols, hence why I have been a little quiet on here. I planned to be the perfect blogger and post everyday, but life has taken over and won my attention! Loads of time spent with friends and family, chilling in the sun and reading, oh and actually being really good and remembering to post to my instagram for mine and Fashion Floozy’s photo-a-day challenge, why not look us up? #qandzphotoaday @zeejay86 and @queeniejbhair

Today mama bear and I went on a road trip up the North Coast, check out the pics!

Vintage guinea pig

Photo: Hair from the back thanks to @queeniejbhair

Yesterday saw me being a guinea pig for my bestie Christine from Queeniejbhair Every Tuesday is her training day and this week it was a vintage look under the guidance of the fabulous Tina.  Seeing as I was off I volunteered straight away, even though I had no idea what she would be dong, only that it would be an up do.  Have a look at the finished style!

As always I just loved my hair and this style, just a pity I had no where to go to show it off! For sure though the next time I have a special occasion I need an up do for, I think this will be the style I go for!

To see more from Christine and her fabulous hair styles be sure to check out her blog . . . Queeniejbhair
