North Pier Blackpool...

This week it has been cold and very rainy here..

We have not had to the chance to do any outside adventures. 

Darker nights are on their way.

In from school then lazy nights before bedtime.

Reading, crafting and catching up on homework...

I think we are slow this year adapting to the weather.

No much running...

No Parkrun for a few weeks either a my husband has been working.

We have got to start getting out again now the rain has stopped!!

This week I am sharing some outside ventures from our holiday in Blackpool.

Ones I forgot to post a few weeks ago...

Whoops...

Or you could say I was saving them for a rainy day!?!

Fun At The Top Of The Blackpool Tower..



A few days I found these photos on my phone. Photos I had forgotten about. Some I took from the top of Blackpool Tower.

All the way up at the top of the Tower.

Big thing for me. Going to the top.

Being scared of heights and all.

Makes me dizzy thinking about it now.

So much so after finding these, {do you ever find photo's you forgot about?}. I had a dream about being at the top of The Tower.

At the top of the tower they have the "Walk of Faith" which is a glass floor panel. After going swimming in the day of my dream, I dreamed the first floor at the top was a swimming pool, looking down onto the road!! as I was swimming around franticly trying to get out !!

Funny things these dream eh!!

Holidays, Fitness, Fun And Selfies...


When we go on holiday we love to walk for miles, run, and scooter (me and my daughters new hobby together). This is a family fun run and scooter day when we were at Blackpool a few weeks ago.


We ran past the North Pier this time to discover somewhere we had never seen. It was beautiful. Waterfalls, not to busy and miles of perfect running paths. Lots of fun illuminations to see along the way.




Photo bombing my daughters photo for a change, as she loves doing this to me!!


How cool does this course look!?!


Perfect for running and scootering on...


And a few family selfies for good measure..
.

On holiday I discovered Vine, so we had fun trying to make a 7 second clip...

A Postcard From Blackpool...


Last week we had a lovely few days break in Blackpool before the children went back to school. Staying in a hotel for 4 nights, it was lovely. One of the best bit for me was having someone else make breakfast for a change {as well as spending time with my family :)}...

Once we had booked our hotel we noticed it had forecast rain over most of the country all week. Eek!!..

Leaving our oldest 2 sons at home they mentioned it was pouring it down, each time that we rang them.

Luckily Blackpool missed out on all the rain that had been forecast! We were very blessed to have sunshine, cloud free sky's and most importantly for a trip to the Great British seaside ...no rain Hurrah!!







How cool is it having a beach to yourselves first thing in the morning!?!

[Row 3 ~ Meeting Kim Collins in Birmingham... Sons first day in secondary school, {Aww, when did he grow up!?!} 2 sons back at the same school!! ]


Sometimes you think you don't really do to many different things in 2 weeks... and them you amaze yourself home much you can fit into a fortnight!!

The last 2 weeks have been busy, busy, busy.  Starting off with a few days in London, then a trip to see athletics in Birmingham, then a 4 nights holiday in Blackpool,  back home for our 18th Wedding Anniversary and a mad few day running around the shops buying last minute back to school things.



The children have now all made it back with all new things on. Oh my how old they look in their new uniform!!

What mum leaves it till 2 days before son starts secondary school to buy a blazer?

Eek this one did!!


Thanks to John Lewis in Nottingham I found him a blazer!! I was so pleased to find one I nearly brought him a girls one!! thankfully they did not have his size on the shelve! so I had to ask, then she realised I was buying a girls blazer for a boy and told me....

Phewwww!! son will not forget this day ... Embarrassing mum!!


In John Lewis with the Lego man...

How quickly did the 6 weeks holiday go!?!

I now need a holiday to recover!


Aww a beautiful new dress fro Joe Browns to review,,,

How has the last 2 weeks been for you??
