The Many Stages of Robot

It was Fiona at Coombe Mill that sparked an interest in creating this blog post.  She has watched, through my blog, the Robot grow into the fun-loving outdoor little boy that he’s become.  It was her comment about him being sat in a back pack, to short walks, to the …

The East Lancashire Railway

On a cold and wet January Sunday we jumped in the car and went to visit The East Lancashire Railway. If you’ve followed my blog for a while you’ll have worked out that Dave and now the Robot have a thing about trains. The steamier the better….

Looking For The Moon

Looking for the moon had become one of my favourite activities to do with the Robot.  Every time we need a bit of fresh air we put on our coats and head outside to look for the daytime moon.  The best bit is that now baby Sister is here we …

View From My… Tent on Scafell Pike

View From My… Tent on Scafell Pike A moment of reflection of time gone by, a snap shot from where I lay my head or better still we lay our heads.  A look back on a trip or outing, one that I will always remember and don’t want to forget.  …

Getting Out

A moment of clarity…  It took till Boxing Day to realise that we were stuck in a bit of a newborn/pregnancy rut. Where getting out was too much like hard work and when we did do the getting out we just did the same old stuff.  Going to the park …

Surviving A Long Train Journey With A Toddler – NO SCREENS!

We’re seasoned train travellers with our little Robot son. He’s 2 and while most our journeys are less than an hour we have destination south coast in our sights. Visiting Family that live across country with a fun-filled 7 hour train journey. Yikes.

With Christmas round the corner quite a lot of people will be considering catching the train to visit family. I figured it would be a good time to share with you a trip I made solo with my toddler back in the Summer. I was a tad daunted to say the least but knew we’d be okay.

Happy Days October 2017

The purpose of this post is to concentrate on all the happy things that have happened over the month. We’ve certainly had some happy moments but being heavily pregnant is starting to take its toll on how happy I can actually feel. I ache now, moving is slow, parent/friend support is spread very thin, poor Dave is juggling work and waiting for that moment I go “I’m in labour”. As of the 29th it’s not yet! I can’t wait… Let’s take a look at some of the happy moments of the past month.

The Wild Trail at Sizergh Castle

The Wild Trail – Sizergh Castle A few of my friends have been mentioning the wild trail at Sizergh Castle is a great free place to go for families.  It was when Abi from the Baby Maze posted a review on her Facebook page with a how to get there …

A Weekend in Wales

We’ve been kind of sucked into a Summer of weddings this year so we haven’t been away on any camping trips or longer holidays. Plenty of day trips, and the weddings themselves have taken us around the country to some beautiful destinations. However I want to take you back to the beginning of July when you could say that the wedding season actually started. We went for a long weekend in Wales.

A Day Trip To Grange Over Sands

It has been a summer of hidden adventures that I’ve not given the time to write about. This is my attempt to break my bloggers block and just get tapping again! Yesterday we had no plans and in the morning I asked the Robot what he’d like to do for the day. His answer was simply “diesel train”.
