Paultons Park – Our Visit To Peppa Pig World

We were kindly invited to visit Paultons Park – Home of Peppa Pig World on Tuesday 5th November which was the start of the Winter season and a new experience for us as we are used to going on more day trips in the Summer months (especially family theme parks)

We were so excited to spend the day at the well-known and popular family theme park where we had planned to visit for the past 2 years but never got the opportunity until recent. We set off mid morning after the children had woken from their nap and was happy to arrive and see that we had come on on a quiet day which meant no queues!

On arrival the first thing that was visible was how pretty and clean the grounds were and although the weather was dreary with occasional showers, the family theme park surrounded us with lots of beautiful sights of flowers and autumnal colours from the leaves on the trees.

It was lovely that both Nia-Mae and Josiah were able to enjoy all the rides we went on by being accompanied by an adult and I love how the family theme park had just the right amount of rides to entertain young ones as some can be so busy with too many rides to choose from; you can easily miss out from confusion of where to go.

Peppa’s Big Balloon Ride

Nia-Mae loved watching the ride and listening to the theme parks happy music and wasn’t scared of how high it was. The ride lasted a good amount of time and was enjoyed by both children and the parents overlooking the lovely view of the whole theme park.

Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club

This was one of our favourite rides as it was one that stood out from all the rest and we could enjoy the water ride without getting wet plus view all the life-like models of Peppa Pig and her family while listening to the theme tune from the well-known tv show! It was lovely to see the array of colours from the model features which really helped make it stand out from many of the other family theme parks we have visited.

The Queens Flying Coach Ride

We enjoyed our coach ride again over looking the beautiful views which encouraged conversation about what Nia-Mae could see. We could also see others enjoying the ride at the same time and waved to the other children as we passed them by!

Meeting Peppa And George

Luckily we were able to meet Peppa and George and take a photo with them. They were very friendly and there was also a member of staff available to take both professional photos which were available to purchase but also take photos of family’s with Peppa and George using their own cameras. Even though the weather was wet, the children were all very exited to meet them both and we didn’t have to queue which was an added bonus! Peppa and George are available at allocated time slots and they even came from under the shelter to meet the children up close and personal.

Georgie’s Spaceship Play Zone

After a busy morning of exploring the rides we had time inside the play zone where Josiah could spend time out of the pushchair and we could have a break from the wet weather. We really loved the set up as it catered so that both parents could relax and have a cup of tea while the children enjoyed playing in the soft play.

It was suitable for both Nia-Mae and Josiah with age categorised play zones, Nia- Mae enjoyed going down the slide and the activities of the Recycling zone where the children can take part in experimenting with the soft balls. Josiah enjoyed George’s Musical Instrument’s which was specifically an area for babies 1 and under.

We then enjoyed eating lunch before heading out to meet Peppa and George again and then enjoying the scenery of the rest of Paultons Park including Lost Kingdom where Dad enjoyed experiencing the Flight Of The Pterosaur while myself and the children looked and heard all the sounds from the dinosaur models.

We ended the evening with gorgeous hot chocolate before heading home and talking about the days event during the car journey. We can’t wait to visit again next year to go on the rest of the rides and attractions that we missed out on.

Thank you for having us Paultons Park!

Desenio- The Ease Of Using Gallery Walls

Desenio is a Swedish company that provides high quality posters and fashionable prints online that are available in the EU, Norway, Switzerland, the US, Canada and Australia.

Wall art is the accessory that can change and lift an entire room and whether you choose abstract, minimalism, quotes or landscape Desenio have a vast range that is guaranteed to compliment your existing colour scheme or decor theme.

If you’re anything like me then visual aids are a must and help to envision and assist putting together ideas and images that are swimming around in your head. We are slowly decorating each of the rooms so the gallery wall tool is a perfect and simple concept that reminds me of an ‘online Pinterest’

Each gallery wall is categorised by room with no obligation to purchase the whole gallery as each wall art can be customised by poster, frame and accessory which amends and adjusts accordingly.

Here are the choices I opted for when using the wall gallery for myself:-

Bedroom

The bedroom is a place of calm and relaxation and the type of decor chosen helps to reflect this. Our colour scheme is white and grey which in my opinion is a perfect combination of masculine and femininity as my husband also shares the room and would definitely frown upon having lots of pink and floral.

Seeing this wall gallery immediately reminds me of how I would envision the finished result to be for our bedroom and allows colours to be added and changed without having to redo the whole bedroom decor all over again.

For both prints at sizes 50x70cm (without frames) totalling £45 and qualifying for free delivery seems very reasonable with the added bonus of how much time has been saved without the fuss of looking around at different prints and then having the daunting task of narrowing it down to the final choice.

This wall gallery is available to purchase here:- Dotted Waves Poster (No.1 & No.2)

Upstairs Landing

We have a huge wall space on the upstairs landing which is directly next to our bathroom. These prints would go perfectly to substitute the lack of wall space we have both in the bathroom and downstairs in the hallway. The vibrancy of colours and fun illustrations reminds me of our recent holiday to Cyprus and would help to ‘kickstart our day’ as these would be positioned directly facing both bedrooms.

A little bit more pricier at £67 for four prints but still brilliant value as one print consists of a size 50x70cm and two prints at 30x40cm which again can be customised to your size requirements.

This wall gallery is available to purchase here:- Pineapple & Poolside Posters

Kids Bedroom

The kids will be sharing in the new year and this is probably the hardest room to design as they are a boy and girl sharing and I would really like the decor in the room to grow with them as well as be as gender neutral as possible but still have a youthful feel to it. There wasn’t as much choice in the wall gallery selection as I would have liked but I came across these posters which would make a fabulous start to their wall decor but also giving me leeway to design their room without having to stick to a ‘jungle theme’ but still have the earthy tones to complete the rest of the room.

I could also build on these wall posters by purchasing some of the individual prints from Desenio by adding some leaf prints which would also add a pop of colour.

These are both available to purchase here:-

Baby Giraffe & Hakuna Matata Poster

Green Monstera Poster

Seeing how these prints work harmoniously together in each room gives me a revived excitement about decorating each of these rooms and makes it feel less daunting when it will be time to add the finishing touches. The wall art gallery is a wonderful innovative idea that should be the future of all online print stores.
