Wonderland, Robert Miles and WWE Norwich #LittleLoves

May 12, 2017

It’s Friday again, how did that happen? My days are passing in a blur of family life. This week has bee especially busy with a number of days out and activities. Roo has been at the forefront of most of the things this week. Not sure how we managed it but everything fell on the same week. I’d have to say that her highlight of the week was going to WWE Norwich and getting to see her first live wrestling match.


One of the recommendations in Roo’s last school report was to read more non-fiction titles. Whilst she is happy to read through a Jacqueline Wilson novel or two she is a little reluctant to pick up other books. As rewards for her school certificates, she has been receiving Horrible Histories books as they seem to be really grabbing her interest – plus they hold some gruesome facts.


On Saturday I headed down to London with Roo along with Magic Nanny, my sister-in-law, and my niece. With tickets to see Wonderland The Musical at the New Wimbledon Theatre. with us all being big Alice in Wonderland fans we were eager to watch the new musical – *spoiler* we loved it!

As I drove Roo to her swimming lesson I heard a radio announcement to say that Robert Miles had died at just 47 years old. This was the DJ of my youth and spent many an hour listening to his Dreamland album or dancing to the tunes in nightclubs with my friends. Children has to be one of my all time favourite songs so needless to say I have been listening to his music via Spotify whilst I work.


Nothing of any note, it’s been a week of catching up on the housework with me finally seeing the bottom of the wash basket in I don’t know how long.


With Roo attending her first WWE event, she was treated to a wrestling t-shirt for the occasion. The Bellas are her favourite WWE Divas (and adores the Total Bellas show) so a red ‘Stay Fearless’ t-shirt was adorned ready for the show.



We were shocked and saddened to hear the tragic news from Drayton Manor. We have visited the park at least once a year, every year since Roo was two years old. My heart goes out to the young girls family and school friends.

    We had the opposite problem with my eldest, she loved non-fiction but I could never get her to read fiction books! Reading Harry Potter with her dad seems to be helping though. Horrible Histories books are fantastic, we have loads of them and N loves sharing all the gruesome facts she reads.
    Enjoy the weekend! xx

    I know what you mean – the days and weeks merge together! Love Roo’s tshirt – how did she find the event? x

      She loved it! She’s already asking when she can go to one of the London shows

    I love this song, reminds me of my younger days! I was devastated to hear about the news of the Drayton Manor accident, utterly speechless. Just so awful, my heart goes out to all involved and especially the little girls family.

    The news from Drayton Manor was just awful wasn’t it. I can’t imagine what her family, friends and school are all going through. And of course the staff at the park x

    I absolutely loved the (then) WWF when I was younger and now my son has really gotten into it. Bringing back some fun memories!
    Such sad news about Drayton Manor x

    I’m so glad you loved Wonderland. I was wondering as I’m not sure what Seren would have made of it.
    Horrible Histories books? Thank you!! The boys are loving watching it on CBBC in marathons (still no Sky 😉 ) and getting them hooks on the books would be a bonus.
    I hope you have another fab week.
