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”.

Bexhill-on-Sea

I’ve got many memories of Bexhill-on-Sea throughout my life. It is the family home of my Dad and even though I didn’t grow up there we visited family often when we were children. Less so in our adult lives but since my Dad has migrated back to his home town the option to visit more with our little family is there.

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

Last week the Robot and I took a mini epic solo trip down to the South coast to visit my Dad and the Robots Grandad. We’ve not been down to Bexhill since the Robot was 5 months old and boy has he changed since then. After a 7 hour train journey and 5 train changes we arrived for a couple of days of fun.

Fathers Day Fun

When Fathers Day rolls round I don’t tend to think much of it. Maybe because I don’t quite get to see much of my Dad or maybe it just feels like another day. Today though on Dave’s 2nd Father’s Day I’ve been thinking a bit differently. We always go on …

Splash Splash Splash

It seems a bit out of place writing a blog post about the rain when most of the UK has had a mini heat wave and lots of nice spring weatherbut I am going to anyway. The Robot loves to splash. The thunder storm that hit us on Saturday bought some rain. It made me realise how lucky I am to have the Robot.
