St Patricks Day Fun

St Patricks Day Fun

Oddly even though I come from an Irish family and grew up in bars and clubs, I've never really celebrated St Patrick's Day but I thought it would make for something different to add to Wonder Kids and for the first time ever I have some recipes to share with you.  I love cooking and I'm trying to get my daughter excited about cooking so Im hoping that these treats may just be the start.

Dublin to Cork

Dublin to Cork

It's been a fantastic month but also a very busy month, I touch on this a little in my last post The Complete Guide to Fathers Day 2018.  We have not long got back from a visit to Ireland where I was doing some shows but I also took my family with me and I think in total we had about 48hrs in Ireland to have fun. So I thought it would be great to mention a few things that we got to do and some things that you really shouldn't miss.

Piñata - A guide

Piñata - A guide

Although Piñata’s are no way near as popular in the U.K as they are in the states they are getting more popular.  These aren't as simple as you may think and I have seen some go horribly wrong ending up with broken noses and broken fingers. I mean the adults not the kids!

Halloween - 2015

Halloween - 2015

Halloween in the U.K is an odd time of year.  It's certainly a bigger event than it was when I was a kid but it's by no means mainstream and it doesn't even start to compete with Christmas or Easter. One of the major hiccups is the whole trick or treat tradition, which doesn't go down well here.  First the weather is normally freezing cold and wet and then having random strangers knocking on your door is not a very British thing to enjoy, it's really weird for us.
