Santa and chase in the same day!?!

Today I had the wonderful pleasure of attending the Bambinos Christmas party and wow did it look fun.

All the usual toys were laid out for the children to play with whilst parents got to have a good chinwag about the coming horror that is Christmas morn, dinner and the big tidy up.

However not long after the last of the children arrived than who should appear upon the stage? none other than good old St Nick himself, the children in the room rejoiced as Santa called them all by name to give them just what they wanted for Christmas with (of course) absolutely no intervention from the parents that brought them to this wonderful event.

Surely this could be the most exciting part of this wonderful day? It would appear not.

Whilst the children quickly unwrapped the presents given by their beloved Christmas icon amidst scream and squeals of excitement and unabashed childish glee a few eagle-eyed parent spotted someone approaching from the car park.

The room all but exploded as Chase from paw patrol walked through the door, the much loved canine star was soon surrounded by overjoyed children and parents taking pictures as he high fived and hugged his way across the room.

To top off this excitement fueled and gift-filled day there was a buffet of sandwiches and savoury treats laid out for children and parents to enjoy, this was all washed down with grape juices and juice pots.

All in all, I believe this day was a great success and a lovely end to the Bambinos year, children left smiling gifts in hand and hearts bursting with joy with all having had a wonderful time.

We here shall miss you all until we see you again on Wednesday the third of the new year.

Good night, God bless and Merry Christmas to you all in this most festive of seasons.


Zumba fitness, how do you do it??

I visited the Zumba Fitness class with Maggie Palmer recently and here’s what I thought.

I was even welcomed to join in

My first impression of this class was before I even got to the class, I was welcomed by members on Facebook when it was notified that I would be visiting the class, I was even welcomed to join in (an offer swiftly weasled out of).

This class isn’t just for women, it’s open to men, women, boys, and girls.

At the class itself the members were very welcoming and friendly to me singing the praises of the class and joking about my possible participation, Maggie Palmer (pictured below) was very helpful and thoughtful going so far as to notify all in the class and give anyone the chance to hide from the all seeing eye of the camera, this class isn’t just for women, it’s open to men, women, boys, and girls.


The class was energetic and fast paced It gave me the impression they were really pushing to the limit to burn fat, tone their bodies and really have fun.

I may even attend some time down the line.

Contrary to the joking of my boss I did not end up joining in but what I have seen of this class gave a really good impression, I may even attend some time down the line.

If you are interested in Zumba, burning fat, toning up or even just having a good fun workout head down to Maggie Palmers Zumba class Tuesdays at 7:00PM – 8:00PM

Let’s hope we see you there soon.
