A Walk In Regent's Park..


So much fun finding new parks to explore.


These photo were taken at Regents park in London. 


I took them when we all last went to visit...

And all looking forward to going again in the summer holiday...


We all had lots of fun here ..

How cool are these fun wooden sculptures?


Not as big as this one, even when jumping!!


Something must be wrong, they are being nice to each other !?!


So relaxing..


A quick look back, until we visit again...

Linking up our outside fun over at~

Back Into A Routine...


I can honestly say I don't know where the last few weeks have gone? The last few days have been manic.

My boiler has not been mended yet and I am out of pocket by £480.00. A week and a half with no boiler has been tough, especially boiling the kettle all the time for warm water. I asked a man to mend our boiler who has done every job but mend it :( No idea what to do next, no boiler mended and no money spare now...

Our Easter weeks have mostly been about eatting! but so much fun!!

With me carb loading for the marathon and my son turning 11 we have shared some wonderful food. Back on track next week with some healthy stuff, now the Eater eggs have gone!!


How big can one burger and a hot dog be?


I had never tried Krispy Kreme doughnuts until a few day before the marathon, oh wow they taste so good!!


Picking my race number up...


Fun at the marathon expo...


Comfy shoes for walking around London...


Socks to recover from the marathon...


My London marathon medal...


Having some yummy Easter eggs to review...

Here is what we have been up to over the last few weeks!!

What have you been doing lately?

But First Let Me Take A Selfie...





My daughter has just started to enjoy using her camera. She has had it for a few years now but just got the bug of taking pictures.

Going walking for miles in London around all the parks she really enjoyed snapping away at flowers, birds and trees. Then I noticed her stand back , arms stretched out in front of her taking selfies. Haha it really made me smile watching her, trying to get the perfect shots...

So I snapped away with my camera whilst she snapped away with her camera...

Pettiecoat Lane Market...







What I wore~

T-shirt ~ Pettiecoat lane
Jacket ~ Primark
Skirt ~ George at Asda
Tights ~ Primark
Shoes ~ Jonathan James


Don't you just love a good market?

Bargains galore?

Fashion at unbelievable low prices?

It has been years since I visited a Sunday market. I use to love them but got so carried away buying things I did not really need, want or use, just because the prices were so low. On Sunday a few weeks back when we went to London we stumbled up on Pettiecoat lane market. A nice market with loads of bargains. 
Trying not to look at anything as we had to carry them all around London , I still could not help buying something. I brought 6 amazing summer dresses all priced up around £25.00 for £1.00 each. They are new, priced up, just seconds. A ll they needed was a strap sewing back on!! Even I can manage that. Can you imagine how may I would have purchased if we did not have miles to walk as we were sight seeing?

Lucky my husband had a bag on his back ...

We past a stall full of scarf's £1.00 each so i had a few of these too...

London t-shirts anyone? £2.00 each

And a fabulous little stall full of fridge magnets and soverniers £1.00 each.

Can not wait to visit again!!

Still need to find Portobello market now, never visited this one yet!!

Do you love a good Market?
