Getting the Boys Writing for National Stationery week

***Review***
National Stationery Week runs 24 April - 30 April 2017, when the UK will celebrate its passion for handwriting and all things stationery. I think this is an important initiative. Writing is just as important as ever, and to help get involved we have been sent a big box of stationery.

Have a Whale of a Time on the Way to Amsterdam

Did you know how much wildlife can be spotted from on board the passenger ferry in the North Sea?

From dolphins to whales to birds, you’ll be amazed how many there are. We attended a recent event onboard to learn more about it, and you will be able to learn all about the wildlife that lives in the North Sea too if you are sailing from Newcastle to Amsterdam on the DFDS King Seaways ferry, on a marine wildlife mini cruise.

A Wonderful Family Day Out at New Lanark World Heritage Site & The Falls of Clyde

***REVIEW***
New Lanark World Heritage Site is one of 6 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Scotland. It is a beautifully restored 18th-century cotton mill located in the Clyde Valley, Just one hour south of Glasgow and Edinburgh, it welcomes over 300,000 visitors every year to experience over 200 years of social history and industrial heritage.

It has to be said, it is not a World Heritage Site that I had previously been aware of, but when offered the opportunity to visit and review, it caught my interest, and the combination of history, heritage, the outdoors, and the first trip to Scotland for my boys I thought would be enough to convince them too. And it was.

Lightwater Valley - A Family Day Out in North Yorkshire with Angry Birds

***REVIEW***
Lightwater Valley is a theme park near Ripon in North Yorkshire, England. It is only eight miles from junction 50 on the A1 and less than 75 miles from Newcastle. When an invitation arrived inviting My Boys Club to review the theme park, it was an invitation we were not going to turn down and the hope of a great family day out in Yorkshire awaited us.

I didn't know this until this week but Lightwater Valley is best known for being the home of Europe’s longest rollercoaster - The Ultimate. More about the rollercoaster later.

A Vegetarian Alternative to the Traditional Sunday Roast

***RECIPE***
Easter is nearly upon us and apart from Christmas and New Year, it is one of the only other times of the year that many families have the opportunity to get together during a holiday period. The unofficial start to spring and the tourist season here in the UK, it also means that for the next six months our days will be longer, warmer (hopefully) and happier too.

With two Bank Holidays, for many people that means four days off work, as we hit the quarter-year mark. Whether you will be out egg hunting or waiting in at home for the Easter Bunny here is an alternative recipe for Vegetarian Loaf this Easter for any friends or family members who have decided to give up meat or if you are looking for a meat-free alternative to lamb on the dinner table.

Lambs so cute & cuddly - At a farm near you in the North East

Spring is finally on its way and with that brings lots of very adorable lambs being born in the British countryside. 

Lambs are just so cute and cuddly that its no wonder that sheep are so popular in nursery rhymes such as Little Bo Peep, Baa Baa Black Sheep, and Mary Had a Little Lamb. Millions of lambs will be born this spring with many of them here in the north east.
