Day's Out : Skegness...


How quickly has the six weeks holiday gone by? Back to school for mine next week.

We have been out and about all over the country. 

One day me and my daughter went out for a girls only day out. Just me and her. It was lovely. 

We was wondering where to go and my daughter picked the beach!! The nearest beach to us is in Skegness, a 3 hour train ride away. My mum and dad have a caravan there so it was a good reason to go and visit them.


We texted grandma and grandad to say we was on the train and coming to visit them. A good job or they would have been out for the day. ( like they were the time after this visit when my son came with us!).

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.

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.

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..
