Our Training Day Outing

I hate being stuck in the house all the time but being a blogger means that I am in quite a lot writing up posts and playing with trying out items for reviews. Yesterday was a school training day and so I decided to take a day away from blogging (well the competitions were already scheduled) and spent it with my family. Simon wasn't working either so we decided to take a trip into town.

We had a walk through the Trinity Centre in Leeds and admired their Christmas lights and decorations. A huge snowman stands in the middle of the centre with bright flashing lights an singing Christmas songs. 


Then we got to our destination, The Handmade Burger Company. Thomas has been wanting to go here since my birthday when Simon and myself went an loved it. You can see what we though in our Handmade Burger review.

The boys each got a little colouring set to do whilst we waited and they both enjoyed scribbling and colouring in, Thomas was also doing the puzzles too. I thought this was a good idea as it tool their minds off from waiting for their food and gave them something to do.

The meal went down a treat, burgers, chips, salad, were all so nice and even the ever fussy Thomas enjoyed his too. Promising the boys a dessert, I ordered a sharing sundae as we weren't really that hungry but were being greedy and didn't want to get one each. And then it came...


A yummy chocolate brownie and waffle sundae with vanilla ice-cream, chocolate sauce and whipped cream with chocolate powder on top. Oh... My... Gosh... it was so yummy. All of us tucked in and devoured it although we still couldn't manage it all. 

I am so glad that we went to The Handmade Burger Company because not only are the staff really pleasant and always there if you need anything else, but there food is amazing too. 

After having a rest and finishing off our drinks, off we toddled to The Entertainer. We promised the boys a toy if they were good and so we went for a look around. The one in the Trinity Centre is packed full of loads of toys and even had a couple out to play with. Looking around the whole store, the boys eventually settled on the Play-Doh Diggin' Rigs Rowdy Trash Tossin' Garbage Truck. We paid for it and then went to wait for the bus home. 


When we got home, the boys took no time at all pulling the box open to play with their toy.

We had such a lovely day and it was so nice to spend the day out in town together, having nice food and shopping for toys. I can't wait to do it again!
