LEGOLAND Review -Trafford Centre, Manchester

We went to Legoland!!

And we had lots of fun!

You know when your watching your kids driving around in lego cars, on a fun looking road with lego tree’s and characters all around them and in that moment you wish that you could be a kid again so that you can join in too? Yep, that is exactly what happened to me!

Legoland Discovery Centre is a fun indoor playground for kids with a couple of rides to go on and lots of activity sections to participate in that provides a jam packed, fun day for kids, allowing the parents to either join in and watch or relax with a coffee in the cafe.

We arrived early at 11am and at that time it was fairly quiet however that soon changed by the afternoon, when it got a lot busier, apart from having to que for certain rides and activities for a little longer, it didn’t seem to matter though.

My favourite part:

Had to be the 4D cinema experience!! We watched a 15 minute long, Lego Nexo Knights movie. It had flashing lights and sound effects, with splashing water that sprinkled all over us and crazy lego peices feeling like they were coming out of the screen and about to hit us! We laughed so much and thoroughly enjoyed it!

How much did we pay:

  • For an adult ticket we paid £12.92 each
  • For a child ticket we paid £9.58 each
  • I paid online (as it cost slightly more to pay on the door) and I selected the 11am arrival option (from the selected 15 minute slots)

Here’s a few more pics of me, my mum and my kids enjoying our time at Legoland;

Did I enjoy Legoland and would I recommend it to you all?

Yes, absolutely!!!

My Thoughts – Positive Self Talk

Typical work day routine:

Wake up at 6am and get ready for work whilst constantly nagging the kids to get ready for school, rush your breakfast, kids rush theirs, feeling guilty you even rush conversations with them just so that you can make it in time to drop them at the childminders and then rush off for your train!

After all of that rushing around you arrive at work to rush through your morning to take an hour for yourself for your lunch. You then rush back to the office and rush through your afternoon dealing with office politics and getting through your work load until the clock strikes 5pm and then you rush off back to the childminders and then rush back home.

It's 6pm and by this time you are exhausted Layonie but dinner won't make itself! So you cook dinner, do kids bath time, have your dinner together, homework time, then it's the kids bedtime before finally you can relax in the bath and wind down before you climb into your bed to get as much sleep as possible ready to rush through the same routine again tomorrow!

Life as a single full time working mum!

It's not easy, sometimes you just want to give up, give in, forget what society dictates and be a full time mum again! But you know that that won't get you to where you need to go, to make the contacts that you need to make, to get you to reach the aspirations that you have so deep inside for your future, for you and your children, so you wake up again the next day, paint a smile on your face, push your emotions somewhere to the back of your mind, maybe have a little rant to a friend over what'sapp during your commute, just to get it off of your chest and you keep going!

You keep going because you believe that the future is bright, that your dreams and vision for your future will come true!! You believe that your long term plan will benefit the kids in leaps and bounds and will absolutely be worth it in the end. This current lifestyle is only temporary because you know how you want it to all work out! 

You believe in you!!!

Ignore the opinions of colleagues that think they know what's best for you, just smile and nod! You have your own personal plan for your future, keep that close to your chest and stay focused! Your family and friends advice is always welcome and you appreciate that they are trying to help but you don't have to apply it, everyone's desire for the future varies widely and that's ok, you know what's best for you more than they do!

Don't play it small to fit in, play it big, think big and believe even bigger! Continue to work on those projects! Who cares if you embarrass yourself or if it doesn't work out, I'd rather try and fail, than to never try at all!

You've got this honey – keep going – push through – believe and receive! #PersistentlyHappy

Looking forward to seeing you reach your goals!

The power of positive self talk!

To all the mums in the world I salute you – we don't get enough credit for what we do!!!!

Hope this post helps a mum today, your not alone as you can see, I feel the same way too!

We can do this!!!
