Snow Kids...


These is no getting-away from the snow at the moment. Back again this week, thankfully not as deep as it was on Boxing Day. When it is cold outside, it is hard work getting my children out to play but throw us snow and there is no keeping them in!! 

Today I am sharing some snow fun pictures I took when we had snow a few weeks ago. I have only just got around to sharing. 

A miserable week with flu, not helped by the weather, the snow at least looked nice out of the windows! I am so glad after a week of having lemsip, it is eventually going. Sorry son, eek I may have passed it on to the 2nd eldest son!!

Park Fun In The Snow!!

Park Fun In The Snow... Yes really!!

If you read any my blogs, follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook you will have seen we got lots of lovely snow on Boxing day. It was great to see the snow arrive and also great to see it go! The last few days when it turns mushy and icy is never good.


My youngest two children are getting a bit to big for the park now and are never really interested in going on the swings, but if they cant go on ... they want to!! Typical eh? This week we have been having lots of fun out in the snow and these pictures were taken the day after boxing day, when the snow was fresh and new. Since then we have had shopping trips, running, walkie talkie fun and a trip to the woods to play Nerf guns in the snow.

X Country Racing : Country Kids With Coombe Mill..

Brr .... it has been so miserable for us to get out and about over the last few week. We have mostly been staying inside after school as it has been getting dark and cold quickly. Weekends spent Christmas shopping with a few fresh miles walking to the shops and back.

Today I am sharing some pictures from a few weeks ago when my son did a cross country race. It is on every few weeks but lack of training and transport today so he has to miss the event. I always think it is great how many children get up and out early to run on such a wet and cold day. I have let my running slip due to exchanging a run for a class in the gym to keep warm. 


No mum I'm not nervous!!
Now I'm ready to race ...
Daughter and her teddy came along to support..
Let the race begin...
Go go go..
Tired but giving it his all...
Gave it everything...

Cross Country Relays At Berry Hill Park...


Last week my second eldest son ran the Cross Country Relays at Berry Hill Park. Each year 1,000's of runners of all ages come to the park to race x country. If this day was not get my running mojo back, no day would.


This is an event all the family love to go to watch. My husband and all my sons had been looking forward to this event for some time. Would it be raining? would it be cold? would it be muddy? like previous year? No, It must have been the warmest year on record for this event, {well in years} as usually I am wrapped up warm hiding behind scarf's, hat and gloves with the cold.

Not this year!!

The ladies races is the one that inspires me..  Women of all ages, running unbelievably fast... one day lol...


My son did great and was very pleased with his race. It is hard to get a good picture when he is running though...

Sometimes my kids do not want their photo taken...


Sometimes they do lol...

So on Tuesday I did a 6 mile run and rep session at running club, after 5 weeks off from running. Great to get back on it again but the boiler being broken don't make it easy to get out the door as freezing water is not much of an intensive to get me out running.

 Great news too, we have found someone to replace our boiler, put it where we want it putting, and at the right price!! 

Roll on a week on Monday...

Our Halloween Night...


Hope you all had a fun Halloween day and night?

My children love Halloween and had a great time making cakes, designing  Pumpkins, dressing up and going out 'Trick or Treating'


The little witch had a few costume changes!!


And then she was happy being a little Hello Kitty devil..


Lots of people make a real effort here, which is lovely to see...


How big was this Pumpkin, lol...

Now the children are set up for the next few weeks with candy and chocolate!!

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!?!

Run/ Walk In The Park : Country Kids With Coombe Mill...

On Sunday me and 3 of our children decided to go on the hunt for conkers. Dressed in something comfortable to run in,  it was the perfect combination to get some exercise done too.


Mum behind as usual!!


Its easy to get the youngest to our running when they have new trainers...


No Conkers here, so run to the next spot...


Found one unopened chestnut shell so we could be close?

Not!!

That was about it...

We did not find any...



Oh well..

We had to make a quick plan B...

And picked some leaves to make an Autumn picture instead...

Fantasy Island...

The last few weeks we have been getting out and doing lots of running. The children are loving running at the minute, which is great...A PB at Parkrun for my son last week and nearly 2 minutes quicker for me last week than 2 weeks before. 

This week I though I would share some pictures of a family day out to the seaside {instead of running again!!}. Sharing one of the last visit to the Beach in 2014. No more visits for another year. Aww...

Something special about being at the seaside when the sun is shining. 

How good does it make you feel!?! 

This was a day out a few weeks ago at Fantasy Island in Ingoldmells. The sun was out and it felt like we were aboard. We stayed the night in Mablethope and the next day was completely different, cold windy and overcast!! Typical British weather!!


Fantasy Island was buzzing with people..


Great wall, perfect for a photo opp!!


Loving this sunshine..



After a walk around the market and fairground, time to hit the beach...


Having to sit in the shade as it was to hot..
