Oh Yummy Chocolate...


Don't you just love the smell of chocolate in the M & M store? Hmm warm chocolate..

We always love to visit their amazing shop when in London. 

We had a lovely day out in London yesterday.

The weather was amazing too.

Today I am sharing photos from a visit last year!! 

My children are still holiday here still and 100's of photos to go through. Then I remembered I still have a few posts in draft.

 I had forgot to post!! 

Funny thing is my son wore the same t-shirt yesterday he wore in these pictures too. Must be his favourite London look!! 


What I wore~
  • Dress : Primark
  • Bag : Cath Kidston
Now to plan something fun with the children today. All go here!! Not so warm today though :(

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 ..

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!?!

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..

Parkrun Parkfunday...



I am finally back on the roads and trying to improve my running..

Last week we started back doing Parkrun on a Saturday mornings.

For those who do not know, Parkrun is a free weekly 5km timed run. There is most probably an event going on near you? as there is hundreds going on all around the world.

9 a.m on a Saturday morning.

Why did we stop?

Exercise! 

Family fun! 

Timed run!

Only 5km!

Free!!

I do not know why we stopped!?!


It is a great way to spend quality time with my children, doing something we all love.

 Last week me and my 2nd oldest son took park, this week me, my 2nd oldest son and youngest son took part. 

Next week my husband may join us!?! 

Just got to get my daughter into running now...


For some reason this year I have fallen out of love with running. I am hoping that trying to do most Saturdays ( when husband is not at work in the mornings ) morning runs will help me love running again.


No more excuses, from me !?!..

Got to be in it to win it  improve my running :):)

Victoria Embankment ..

There are lots of beautiful parks in Nottinghamshire and one of our favourite places is at The Victoria Embankment. The first time I seen it, I wanted to move here!! I phoned my husband up and said, pack up we are moving.

Nothing ever materialized from that conversation but we love to visit when possible. They also hold lots of great events held here too, so lots of things to look out for. Last year I ran the Nottingham half marathon, we also had a great time at the Arm Forces Day where we watched the Red Arrows fly by and a bike race event was on not to long ago...

How cool is the park for the children!?!











Now if you can get up, you can get down!! "I'm not getting down until someone helps me" *rushes over to help* wow it looks a long way up there!!
