It is time to kiss goodbye to fur-lined coats and boots, and say hello to pumps, cardigans and sunglasses. Spring has sprung, and I could not be more excited!

Thea had her 4th birthday a few weeks ago. As we did a big party for Ava on her fourth birthday, we wanted to do something special for her too.

We’ve been to a few Winter Wonderland experiences over the years but this year we tried out one in a garden centre. And it was brilliant! If you’re anywhere near Aylesbury, in South Bucks, I highly recommend World’s End’s Winter Wonderland. Ryan was really reluctant to drive for nearly an hour to go to a garden centre but luckily I was proved right (phew!)
The world’s End Winter Wonderland experience
It begins with a a walk through a little snowy village. It is inside but it’s kind of chilly so you’ll need to keep your coats on!
