My Brilliant Half Term


Rivington Pike

On Monday we went to Rivington Pike up to the top and I only had one rest on the whole journey which was at the top of the Pike, so I was exhausted by the time I got to the top! The view was the best I’d ever seen it I could see so far out!

This is the view from the pike.

We were going back down the Pike, but  we went a different way I’d never been before. At last we were at the bottom of the Pike and then we went and had a drink in the Great Hall Barn and I had a hot chocolate. Mmmm! 🙂


Grandad Comes

On Tuesday Grandad came to babysit and bought us each a Galaxy Chocolate Flurry that was delicious. After tea we played a game of Bugs In The Kitchen and two games of Monopoly Deal.


On Wednesday we watched ” Honey, I Shrunk The Kid”, which was really good I’m really looking forward to watching the next one “Honey, I Blew Up The Kids “.


 Spending WHSmith £20 Gift Card

On Friday we went to WHSmith in Manchester to spend our £20 Gift Cards from Uncle Bob Auntie Lauren and Brandon. First we went to Debenhams for Georgia to spend her £25 voucher and I looked at a lot of things that I really liked there were so many of them!

Then we went to WHSmith and I bought three books for the price of two which were The Person Controller, Tom Gates Everything’s Amazing (sort of), Tom Gates Genius Ideas (mostly) and a Brainbox The World.


Afterwards we went to BrewDog and I started reading Tom Gates Everything’s Amazing (sort of) and had a apple fritz which was delicious.

Yard And Coop

After that we went out for tea at Yard and Coop and we had buttermilk fried chicken, sweet potato chips and normal chips and sauce for mains, I had a Mama Mia sauce which is just an Italian pasta sauce which was really nice.

Christmas At Sky High Adventure

Have you read about my last experience at Sky High Adventure?

If you haven’t click here. On my latest blog from Sky High Adventure I had a invite to go again and meet Santa and do one of the activities again either the High Ropes or the Clip’n’ Climb. I chose Clip’n’ Climb since it was my absolute favourite thing in the whole place. I was allowed to take a friend with me, so we asked Ashton to come and he said yes. When we got there we saw a huge Christmas tree.


Clip ‘n’ Climb

When I went in to the Clip’n’Climb area I went on the different walls that I didn’t manage to complete with school one of them was really difficult with ropes hanging down to pull yourself up. We had races on some double sided ones. I got to do the Drop slide, The Leap of Faith and a stair thing where you stand on tower things and go higher and higher.
