Cadburys World.

Yesterday we took an amble up the M1 to sunny Birmingham and the gorgeous, creamy, scrummy, sweeet, chocolate world of Mr Cadbury!!

The journey was fine although I am sure that Birmingham was closer than the 116 miles Stella said it was on previous visits!! We went with Karen and Megan from over the road and Hannah who was sleeping over. The girls were very happy in the back singing and playing games all the way there. Karen was super organised and had a bag with drinks and food.

When we got there we had trouble finding a space to park. Once we got in we were an hour ahead of our 'tour' time but they said it wasn't too busy so we could start the tour straight away. We were in the first theatre with our little bag of goodies when I realised that I had left Stella in full view in the car, so I had to go back the way I came and rescue her. It was not an easy thing to do as there were no escape routes like they have in Disney. When I eventually joined them again they were in the next theatre, the one with the wobbly seats!! We continued around to the Cadabra ride where the attendant took great pains to tell us that we would be photographed half way around and that we could see the photos when we got off, well we stuffed that up as we were all looking the wrong way and there were two lovely shots of the back of our heads, Karen,the only one looking the right way, looked dazed, so not a successful photo shoot!!

The girls had a go at piping with chocolate and we decided to have a bite to eat. We walked into the cafe and were immediately attracted by the scones, jam and cream with a pot of tea deal. The girls had hot dogs and chips. (slimming world starts today again!!!)

Since my last visit they have converted an area outside into another attraction called 'Essence' in here we were able to choose some sweets which they they covered in melted Dairy milk. It was very yummy and very sickly!!

We had a great day out, I am glad we had free tickets or it would have been a very very expensive day!!!

What Loz Means

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.

You are incredibly wise and perceptive. You have a lot of life experience.
You are a natural peacemaker, and you are especially good at helping others get along.
But keeping the peace in your own life is not easy. You see things very differently, and it's hard to get you to budge.

We went to Cadbury World last summer and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Not a great lover of milk chocolate myself, which pleased my son & hubby, who were more than happy to eat all my freebies! !
