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.

At The Park : The Wednesday Blog Hop..


One day last week, after school we went to visit my parents. Before we arrived we stopped at a local park and did our evening run. It is lovely to run in day light and another bonus, the sun was shining! Still very cold though.

Lovely to see lots of Spring colours around, the swans on the water and the daffodils popping up all over. After our mile run we stopped to watch the sun starting to set.

Whenever we have gone out as a family over the last few days to the park or anywhere outdoors,  I have always forgotten my phone.

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..

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.

How Does Your Garden Grow?


Over the last few weeks we have been on lots of cool adventures. Sometimes the simple things in life can be great fun too. 

Once a week we have been visiting my Mum and Dad. It is always a fun day for the children visiting Grandma and Grandad.

We had a lovely day out in London yesterday.

The weather was amazing too.

6 Miles Walk...

Hurry up dad, it's my turn!!

When the snow arrived at the beginning of the month it was so much fun. Everybody loved it. Before it had settled the children wanted to go out and play in it. Walks out, snowballing fun, making snowmen, slipping, sliding, Nerf fun and going on a walkie talkie adventure.

Now a month later and the snow is back again {lost count how many times it has come and gone now this month!}. Not too much fun now, cold, icy and everyone is fed up with it. The flu, colds and fever has caught us all {apart from hubby} and now I am really looking forward to warmer weather...

This was a 6 miles walk through the woods when the snow was exciting ..
