August So Far...

How quickly are the Summer weeks going by!?

So quickly I completely forgot to put on The Wednesday blog hop this week!!

We have been so busy just lately.

Visits to the seaside, nature walks weekends away and so much more.

My phone is full of pretty memories.

No time to stop and look at pictures yet as we do not get a minute!!

Horrible History Break At Butlins..

We have just come back from a fun filled week at Butlins Skegness. All as part of my Butlins Ambassador role. We got the chance to try out a Horrible History themed break. Perfect for Spring Bank Holiday. The only thing during our week, which was not perfect however, the weather! Although as it turns out, if you stay at Butlins, come rain shine or gale force winds the fun really never stops!!

Read on...

We decided to travel by train. So a nice early walk to the station was needed. Everyone up with a smile, with a spring in their step? Not likely!! After a few tantrums (mainly the Hubby;-) we are on our way. A few hours after getting up we arrive in Skegness to be greeted by the Jolly Fisherman.

Fun Geocaching..


Eventually my children's school's have broken up for their half term holidays.

I'm sure most of the UK have already had at least a week off school already!?

Thankfully they are both off at the same time as they are both at different schools and some schools around us broke up a few weeks ago. We would not have been able to go far if one was at school and one was home!

We have plenty of outdoor fun planned and can not wait to get out and explore new places. A few weeks ago we discovered Geocaching.

Walk Around Newstead Abbey..

A few weeks ago when the children were off school and the husband was off work we took a train ride to Newstead in Nottinghamshire. We got off the train and had a walk around Newstead through to Newstread Abbey.  With a spot of sight seeing along the way.

Newstead train station.

Parkrun Parkfun..

Last week as I had been ill, the husband got to run Parkrun again. Me and my daughter go to cheer them on and held their coats for them. Mollie also came along for the walk but all she ready wants to do is run with them.

Coats : check
Wellies : Check
Hats and gloves : Check

It is still really cold first thing.

Waiting for the race to start so we can walk around the course to cheer the boys on. Mollie focusing on my son, hoping he shouts her over for a run!?

Red Telephone Box : Wednesday Blog Hop..

Not often you see a red phone box nowadays.

We saw this one at Wollaton Hall on Saturday. 

It was such a miserable day and pouring it down with rain. I always get a nostalgic feeling when I see one. Temporarily warming me up!! Did you know the minimum you can put in a call box now to make a call is 60p !!! It was 10p when I last used one. Inflation.......

My son was racing here and he came home so muddy!!

Can't wait to go back another day when the sun is shining!

Perhaps make a call???

Want to link up?

Autumn Poem And Ferris Wheel..

Today I am sharing something different :

Autumn Poem And Ferris Wheel..

Lots of fun in Skegness this year,
Blue skies were oh so clear.

For now next Summer feels a long way off,
Autumn nights and lots of coughs.

Nights are getting darker,
I need to find my Parka.

Lightweight clothes have been packed away,
Ready for another day.

Jumpers and Winter coats out ready to wear,
Look at me I feel like a bear.

Christmas Jumpers pulled back out, 
But not quite time to wear about.

Until next year in warmer times,
Hope you've enjoyed my silly rhymes.

My Sunday Photo : Parkrun...

My Sunday photo was taken yesterday at Parkrun.

Me, my youngest son and daughter ran it. It was so warm at 9 oclock and we all worked hard. Especially my daughter as she got a pb.  She ran around with her dad, so he could encourage her on. When I had done the race I waited for her to finish so I could cheer her on. Not to far behind me this week too.

I rushed over and gave her a big hug but she was feeling a little sick as she had sprinted to the end..

Going On An Adventure...

We were all excited for the start of the Summer Holidays. 

Nice sunny skies, for six action packed weeks..


In fact more dull and rainy days than sunshine this week.

No worries though, cloudy days can be fun too. All we need is an idea. Some of our most memorable days of the holiday so far, have been when we woke up with seemingly nothing to do. 

Tuesday being a perfect example. We decided to take a trip to Grandmas house that morning, after nice big breakfast.
