A Festive feast with the #QBloggers

Last week a group of bloggers attended an event in Queensgate to taste lots of festive food and drink from retailers within Queensgate.

With Christmas literally days away the kids had been asking to go and see Santa for ages. We were due to go last weekend but with the heavy snow we were unable to get there.

When I was contacted recently to see if the boy would like to review the Hot Wheels stunt bridge I just knew they would love it. The motorised bridge (which requires 2xD batteries) and multiple configurations just brings endless… View Post

Little man went mad shouting and screaming that Santa’s Elf was calling. Doug then pretended to speak to ‘Santas Elf’ who was calling to say there was a live… View Post
