I am not a fan of waking early on a Sunday, but for a chance to go to Chester Zoo for the latest Matalan Bloggers Event, my parents, my daughter and I found ourselves on the road pre 10am.
Chester Zoo is one of our favourite places locally and my daughter loves to see all the animals – especially the bats flying around in the Fruit Bat House!
Matalan had very kindly given us a £20 voucher to spend online for a new outfit for my daughter to wear for the occasion and I had to admit she looked lovely! Admittedly even though we have a Matalan in our home town I have never really spent time looking in the store or on the site. It was great to look through all the children’s clothing online and I am happy with the items I chose. The quality is great and the cardigan is definitely long enough to see my daughter for another year and at the reasonable prices, I believe I chose a bargain!
The Chester Zoo event was a great way to catch up with bloggers I have not seen in a while such as Red Rose Mummy and My Mummy’s Pennies and also meet new bloggers. The weather was definitely on our side and if anything we found ourselves roasting – hopefully my tan will have topped up slightly!
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed herself, along with my parents too! The highlight definitely had to be seeing the baby Elephant and baby Rhino. They were ridiculously cute and I cannot wait to go back again next year to see more new additions to the zoo!
We got to take some amazing images at the Zoo, which in actual fact my daughter took! I believe I may have a little David Bailey in the making 🙂
All in all we had a lovely day, with thanks to Matalan. I will definitely be looking to add more Matalan items to our wardrobes in the future!
