No weekend plans? How about taking a trip to Legoland? To celebrate the end of the season, the theme park in Windsor is offering ‘one more day of awesome’ at a special reduced price of just £20 per person – that’s HALF the usual ticket price.
The park are recommending you pre-book your tickets today to avoid disappointment tomorrow. Other vouchers, discounts and special offers will not be accepted.
Do not fear, there will still be the usual rides including the Dragon’s Apprentice rollercoaster, the Jolly Rocker swing ship ride, Lego City driving school and Lego Ninjago: The Ride.
Whilst the park celebrates the last day of the season, it will open again for Christmas festivities on the 2nd-3rd, 9th-10th and 16th-24th December.

A (hot) cup of tea
You have countless ones that are stone cold or at best luke warm. So being able to sit back (OK, hide in the kitchen) with a fresh tea and finish it… well, that’s heaven in a teacup.
Reading a book
Right til the end. These days, your literary opportunities tend to revolve around supermarket labels, picture books and a quick scroll of your friends' status updates on Facebook.
You relish the music from your train neighbour’s headphones simply because it’s not anything from a Disney film. And you laugh when you hear someone complain about a long journey. Do they not realise how amazing that time is for catching up on Twitter? Or, let’s be honest, napping.
Your usual is Petit Filou – makes sense if your toddler’s having them anyway. So treating yourself to a grown-up yoghurt with a special fruit compote or chocolate section? Bliss.
Watching Made In Chelsea
Those evenings where you get to finish a full episode of something on Netflix without falling asleep. Winning.
A trip to the hairdresser ALONE!
You’d usually be taking your toddler for a trim, in a constant slight cold sweat that he won’t sit still or might run riot. So, getting to go on your own? To sit in that chair, drink the herbal tea, read the magazines (yes, plural!)… Bliss.
Sleep beyond 7am
Now that’s what they call a lie-in.
Wearing those earrings
You know the ones – big, beautiful, don’t-need-a-necklace earrings that make any outfit. Except they’re also baby eye candy, enticing her to pull on them at every opportunity. Ouch! Got a babysitter for the evening? Out they come.
Forget pouring it in the spag bol – that glass of red is predominantly being drunk by you.
Moments of silence
Before, you might've phoned a friend or put on the radio. Now? Sit back. Close eyes. Ahhhh…..
Going to the toilet by yourself
The peace and quiet of being in the bathroom alone with your, erm… thoughts.
One without brightly coloured bubble bath, squeaky plastic toys or the potential for the room to be flooded.
