We visited this FREE festival that offered a variety of professional cultural and creative arts performances and workshops for all ages through dance including street dance and free running, live music, theatre, film, comedy, performance poetry, graffiti, BMX-ing, skateboarding and art exhibitions.
Well my favourite bit about it was the Colourscape, and was one of the reasons I popped down It’s a amazing experience, you are given coloured cloaks to wear and on entering remove your shoes and go on in entering all different coloured sections with musicians in the main section…

Well it’s been 10 days since my daughter came out in the pox! It has been hard work not going anywhere apart from solo escaping from me! I have felt very sorry for her but lucky for her she had it quite easy and is just now left looking scabby and with a cough We were recommended antihistimine syrup and Pox Clin Mousse – which I had never heard of but I must say was a lot easier and less messy to use. Especially as she didn’t want me to touch her ‘spots’ as we called them! You had to apply 3 times a day and the good thing about the less mess was being a independant 4 and a half year old she could do it herself if she choose to And it goes a long way, I now have it on stand-by waiting to see if my 1 and a half year old little boy is going to suddenly turn ‘spotty’!
You can get Pox Clin Mousse 100ml from Boots for £10.47, this has been a personal review and I did not recieve the product for free.
This evening I ask my hubby what he wanted for tea and gave him the options, immediately after chicken pie was mentioned – ‘chicken pie’ was chosen!
So I decided to make chicken and mushroom pie and serve with carrots and peas, not sure where I got the base recipe from but if you fancy it here goes:
Skinless chicken breasts 3-4, chopped into 2cm cubes
1 medium onion, chopped
1 potato, chopped
250ml vegetable/chicken stock
1 sheet puff pastry
2 tsp milk
*Optional: Carrots, Mushrooms, Peas
Toss chicken cubes into flour – shake off excess. Combine meat, *carrots and stock in a medium pan – bring to the boil then simmer covered for 45 minutes or until chicken cooked. Transfer to dish and allow to cool for 10 minutes. *Add peas and mushrooms and place pastry over filling – trim to fit dish, add decoration if wish and make 2 small cuts in top. Brush with milk and bake in oven at 200c for 15 minutes Serve with gravy if desired – we do!
