Easter Holiday in Majorca

Today was our get away for the Easter break to the sunny Spanish Island of Majorca. We had an early start in order to at the airport for 0600 which meant a long day, which as I type is coming to an end. We had a fantastic week in the sun, not too hot and certainly not too cold.

The Abandoned Trip to London

Back to Blogging

Therefore I am starting up this blog with that being the aim. The document some of things that I get up to. I want to come back to this in 10 years time and see the memories. I wonder if I will be able to?

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.

Saturday Stroll Through Brindle Lodge

I ventured out with the kids this afternoon and thought we would call in on Grandad and Grandma and then take a stroll around Brindle Lodge. This is somewhere I would have walked through many a time as child but never been back since.
