Last month we were invited to the launch of Dinosaurs In The Wild, the new immersive walk though experience at Greenwich Penninsula, London. Dinosaurs In The Wild transports visitors back in time to the cretaceous period and a world choked full of dinosaurs. With two dino obsessed little girls in tow we made our way up to London for the opening night to see if the experience at Time Base 67 would live up to expectations.
Last year I read the scariest book I have ever encountered: Behind Closed Doors by B.A.Paris. This was some feat as I've been reading the psychological thriller and horror genres for over 25 years and honestly believed I was immune! No wonder it has sold over 1million copies in 37 countries around the world. I couldn't wait to meet the author of my nightmares at the book signing of B.A. Paris' latest thriller Bring Me Back at Waterstones in Farnham last week and I'm intrigued to find out if it packs the same fearsome punch as Behind Closed Doors.

Last night I watched my favourite film on the big screen for the first time. I'm showing my age here, to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of The Princess Bride the original 35mm film was shown at The Prince Charles Theatre just off Leicester Square. It was brilliant! The whole audience were laughing along to the caper. So amazing to see it on the big screen
Just before Christmas One4all, the multi retailer gift card challenged me to shop for the perfect outfit using one of their loaded gift cards. I was super excited and had a wonderful day shopping on my own (yes on my own without the kids) looking for an outfit for my Grandparents Diamond Wedding Anniversary lunch. Not many couples make it to 60years married so this was a special family occasion.
My kids love a treat after school or when we are out and about. We've been trialing some of the new products hitting the supermarket shelves o to see which ones get a thumbs up from All about a Mummy HQ. Here's what we think of six of the latest kids' snack pouches and drinks.
Heroism, Laughter, Romance, Adventure - Disney has it all by the bucket load plus some rather catchy tunes. Put that all on an ice rink and what a show you have! We are very excited to announce we have been invited to Disney on Ice presents Passport to Adventure tour which is hitting the O2 this month. Hosted by Mickey and Minnie we will be taken on a tour of the globe meeting all our favourite Disney characters along the way - I'm bursting to tell the kids about our Christmas treat but we are keeping it a secret!!!
We had an amazing trip to Circus Wonderland who visit our local recreation ground each year and never disappoint. The show always changes and my favourite act this year was the trapeze. Amazing strength and grace.
Today marks the end of our holiday. The second week we were joined by my Bestie and her family. We were sad to come home but reality beckons!

It's no secret that when travelling we sometimes prefer to ditch the guidebook and explore to find hidden gems other tourists have yet to discover. Such places might have endless tales to tell about the local culture and often they prove more interesting than the popular tourist hot spots. London is no exception. Here is a run down of the top attractions in our capitol which have managed to stay under the tourist radar.
