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.

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!?

Parkrun Parkfun...


Yummy foods to warm us up..

We had to work hard for it first though..


Last Saturday me and my youngest son ventured out into the cold and icy early morning (well not that early but it feel like it in Winter) for a 5K run at our local Parkrun.

Feeling Great? : The Wednesday Blog Hop..


This photo was taken by my husband on Saturday before my sons race. He asked our son how he was feeling? This was his reply!

Think he was feeling pretty confident as he has put the training in. Running everyday since New Years day has really paid off for him. I really need to try this next year as I've not even ran for a week!!



It may have been a miserable rainy day but he did amazing and gave it his all!!

Fitness Friday : Could You Run Everyday?


Could you run everyday? I know I can't. I try every New Year. 1st Resolution, go out on a run everyday. I once lasted until February, but then fell off the wagon. So Fitness Friday today with my running hero. My 12 year old son!


In January he made a New Years Resolution. To run at least one mile every day. We are now nearly in November and he is still going strong.  Even when we have been away on holidays, or days out. Even in the pouring rain and last Winters snow.  As Roy Castle used to say "Dedication's all you need."

The Wednesday Blog Hop...

I love this photo I took at my parents house last week. When I was younger I use to jump over the pampas grass with my friend. We cut our legs to bits. Then did it again the very next day! Good old days!?!

Everything Is OK...


When you go away for a whole day and you are worrying if :

The kids woke up early for school?

Went to school OK?

Son who helped out got back to Uin in time OK?

Husband got home from work OK?

The puppy has been OK?

Then you get this picture sent to you and you know:

All has been really good without you!!

Fun In Nottingham...

Last Saturday me, hubby and two youngest children all got to meet up with our eldest Sons/ little 2's Brothers in Nottingham for the day. I think study; Uni sounds like none stop parties for the first few weeks!

Youngest of the 2, sounds like he has freshers flu, or just a little horse from all the late nights out and shouting.

It was great to get to see them, things are so quiet around here since they left. I got to hear all about what they have been up to! Well I'm sure I didn't get to know everything!!


I could not resist a quick shoe picture in the Autumn fallen leaves...

Autumn Fun...


Me and my daughter making the most of the Autumn leaves.

These pictures were taken on our walk last week. Something fun about kicking the fallen leaves and chucking them around in the air. 

What is not to love about the wonderful colours of Autumn!?!

Proud And Oh So Quite Moments...


Life lately? Another one of my sons has flew the nest!


My 2nd eldest son has packed his bags and gone off to university. My eldest son has gone back; after 10 weeks off, into his 3rd year. It is getting so quiet around here! I am so proud of them both..

Thankfully a long time until the other 2 children are old enough to leave home.

Off To Uni : The Wednesday Blog Hop..


In a few weeks my 2nd son will leave home and go off to uni.

Does it get any easier when the 2nd one goes, I ask myself!?!

I was so upset when my first son went to uni 2 years ago, I even wrote a piece in the Nottingham Post

Last Thursdays he got his exam results.

He did great.

3A's in business chemistry and biology.

Also got offered a place at the uni he wanted on the same day. What a day. 

Another one to soon fly the nest. I am just hoping I am not so upset I will be crying in the street again, like I did when my eldest went!?!

Bet I will though..

Going On An Adventure...


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

Nice sunny skies, for six action packed weeks..

Not!! 

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.
