What’s on this weekend for kids in Sheffield March 10/11

Hello there! Welcome to another weekend roundup… and this weekend it’s mothers day this Sunday! I hope after a very snowy start to the week and following on from last weekends storm everyone is feeling more excited for spring. Unfortunately the weather forecast doesn’t look great this weekend but the temperature has definitely increased, which is what I’m happy about, how about you?! We’ve managed to have a few outdoors days out this week which has made me so happy. I hope you are able to get out and about this weekend and fingers crossed, we’ll be seeing proper Spring weather coming very soon. What’s on this weekend for kids in Sheffield March 10/11

I’m actually writing this post very last minute; I wasn’t sure I would be able to get this done, so please accept my apologies for the lateness of this and how short it is. I received some very, very bad news a few days ago about a family member passing away and it has really struck me hard. My mood is so low, I don’t really feel like doing anything at all, but I knew I wanted to get this out. Without further ado, here’s some things to do this weekend and I hope to see you again next week.

Please don’t forget to subscribe to my blog to be notified of all my new posts, and follow me on Facebook. I also post videos on YouTube, so come along and subscribe to that, too! Thank you 🙂
