The senior British Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes

Last year I attended the Women’s British Open here and had a great time. Therefore we I found out that more professional golf was being played this year I wanted to come along.

We were really lucky with the weather as the day we attended (Thursday – day 1) the weather was fabulous sunshine and warm.

Christmas Eve walk around Worden Park

This morning was a lovely morning, one of those crisp, cold mornings with clear blue skies.

We decided to head out for a walk, and with little bellyaching from the boys, we went to Worden Park

The Ricoh Women’s British Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club

If you have never been to watch a golf tournament before then I would highly recommend the women’s events. The players are brilliant and the crowds not quite as busy as for the men’s event.

In fact whether you like golf or not, you will still have a great day out, particularly if the weather is nice as it was today.

A Day Out at Windmill Farm

Everyone else had been before except me and I was pleased to greeted with a lovely, friendly, family atmosphere at Windmill Farm.

The farm has a number of ‘attractions’ including farm animals, pets, a miniature train as well as reptiles and snakes. In addition there are lots of play grounds and a soft play area for the kids to play as well as the cafe.

A Sunny Stroll Around Brockholes Nature Reserve

The nature reserve us just off the M6 motorway at Junction 31. In fact you have to look for the signs in order to take the correct road or else you will end up on the motorway.

There is a selection of short walks you can take, which go in and around the nature reserve. We went on the perimeter walk – well sort of having got a little lost but ended up on a nice walk along the river.

My Very First Concert – Ed Sheeran at the Edithad

Note: see if you can spot the celebrity in the photos (not someone on stage or performing at the concert of course!).

My brother kindly gave me the opportunity to attend the concert as he had a spare ticket and I snapped at the chance. To be honest concerts and going to this sort of event as never been my thing but I thought it would be silly to pass the opportunity.

A Walk Round Longton Brickcroft Nature Reserve

We actually headed out to Southport to get some walking shoes however found ourselves in what looked like a 5 mile tail-back to get into Southport. Therefore we changed our mind and found the nature reserve on the way back.

A Walk Around Hesketh Park

With it being the half term holiday I took some time off work for a short stroll around the park with the Kids! On the way we encountered some massive swans (the biggest I have ever seen) and some rather amusing Gym equipment!

Worden Park in Half Term

I expected Worden park to be much much busier during a stunning day in February half term. Surprisingly it was reasonably quiet and Harry and James absolutely loved it playing in the playground.

This post was written after this blog was first published. It was added to record this specific event and was back-dated to the event time/date.

Single Seater Racing Experience

The Three Sisters race track is located in Ashton-in-Makerfield near Wigan in the north west of England. The experience started with some driving tips and tricks to learn the lines in a nice Mini Cooper and then we got about 10 minutes around the track in a single seater Formula Ford card reaching speeds of around 80 – 90 mph – it felt much faster!
