The Snowman Tour at Blackburn Cathedral review

the snowman, the snowman tour, carrot productions, blackburn cathedral, blackburn, christmas, the bear and the piano,

I was kindly invited to see The Snowman Tour at Blackburn Cathedral. A much loved favourite of mine. This was an orchestral performance of the much loved classic of mine.

Oh my goodness it was absolutely amazing! I was so impressed with it all. I didn’t want it to finish and I wanted to watch it again. The musicians were superb! The atmosphere was perfect. Both children enjoyed it very much. It has given Master A a few new favourites. The Snowman and musical instruments especially! The soloist was superb! Such a beautiful voice! Every person performing was so talented. I love the fact they wore Christmas hats/accessories! We even had a visit from The Snowman!

The Bear and the Piano was very good too. So good we have since bought the book. To buy the book click here

I hope that Carrot Productions makes these shows for many years to come and I hope I am able to go to every performance! The Snowman performance has changed my life. It was that good! It has to be one of the best performances I have been to. It was magical. I think it helps that I love The Snowman. It brings back so many memories when I see the programme. My lovely mum (who is very missed) made a snowman cake years ago for Christmas. So many lovely memories of that cake. I watched her make it…and certainly ate quite a bit of it!

Do you know that Carrot Productions will be touring again soon. This time it will be Wallace and Gromit. I love Wallace and Gromit. I love Carrot Productions! Exciting! I am hoping that there are some tickets left for The Pleasure Beach arena. That is Miss A’s second home! See where they are touring! The Snowman performance was amazing and so magical. I am sure the Wallace and Gromit tour will be too! For more information, visit the Carrot Productions Website


I have been missing.

First of all, hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. We did. That’s why I decided to be blogging today. As you can tell I have been missing.

2018 has been tough. But now I have found myself in a better place. A more organised state of mind. I am ready to make 2019 the best I can make it.

2018 should of been like that but due to various reasons, Master A and his issues, still getting over losing my mum, it didn’t happen.

October was the worst. I found out that Master A could have a genetic condition called Noonan’s Syndrome. Genetics testing has started for that and I should have the results in the next couple of weeks.

If he has it, the likelihood is that I have it too. I have been going through so many emotions since his genetics appointment. Guilt, sadness, frustration, impatience. I have been waiting for almost three months for the test results. That is the time it takes, I found it difficult to deal with.

I have beating myself up a lot. I felt guilty for passing something onto him. But it is something that I didn’t even know about.

He may not have it, I know. To be honest, a lot of me hopes he does. I have been waiting for almost three years for an answer to why Master A has his cafe au lait marks. As I told the genetics doctor, I have never been told that they are normal and the fact that I can’t see inside Master A and there are a few conditions that can cause issues internally, I need to know that he is OK.

That’s when she mentioned Noonan Syndrome.

Time will tell whether he has it or not but to be honest, I want answers. I want to know what is going on with Master A.

Anyway, I worry less now. Master A may have his learning difficulties and ‘quirks’ but I wouldn’t change him for the world.

He and his sister really enjoyed Christmas. They still are having fun. I am worrying and stressing less so I have more time and energy to put into making their time more fun and making sure we all enjoy every single day.

I would like to thank everyone that has supported me this year, here’s to a more happier and productive 2019.

Preston Precious has been neglected but from now on I will be spending a lot more time on here and on social media (when the kids don’t need me of course!).

Hope 2019 is a good year for you all!

I am kindly invited to see The Snowman Tour at Blackburn Cathedral. This is an orchestral performance of a much loved Christmas show of mine. I remember watching it for the first time when I was little and it was magical on screen, it is going to be even better at Blackburn Cathedral with a live orchestra playing.

We are going to see the performance at Blackburn Cathedral as this is the nearest place to us. But as this is a tour, maybe they are going to be in your area? The tour will start on the 3rd December and finish on the 29th December. For more details and how to buy tickets visit Carrot Productions Website.

There will be other entertainment on the day too, like another animation showing. Looking forward to seeing this! The animation that we will be seeing is The Bear and the Piano. This animation is based on a book. A book that I have never heard of and intend to purchase as it looks lovely! To buy this book yourself, click here.

There will be a soloist singing Walking in the Air. I think I will be in tears at this point. This song brings back so many memories of Christmas at my parents house. I miss those days. Christmas is still very good now, especially with both children but there is something special about Christmas Day while growing up.

I am really looking forward to seeing this performance of The Snowman. I haven’t told Miss A yet, she will be very excited!
