Father’s Day Fun from Hobbycraft

I recently took a trip to my local Hobbycraft in Norwich to grab a few bits so that L and I could make some fun Father’s Day gifts. Now L is only two and half years old, there is a limit to what he can craft but no limit to the mess he can make, or the fun he will have making it!

So we pushed back the rug, got him into his little craft apron, these are brilliant and only cost £1, well worth purchasing one, and then we set about immortalising Daddy by creating a portrait of him.

We love these play aprons

Our last full day in Devon was a bit of rainy and miserable one but not to be put off we headed to The Milky Way Adventure Park that has over 110,000 sq ft of indoor play, it was definitely the right choice and couldn’t have been a more perfect place to spend our day.  Continue reading Our Day at The Milky Way Adventure Park

Our trip to Quince Honey Farm did not start well, as it was around an hour from where we were staying at Sandaway Beach Holiday Park and some of the other days out we went on we knew it was perfect napping distance so decided to go one afternoon. We went after a really great morning at The BIG Sheep and the little one slept the whole way there, on the bizarre detour we took and in the car park when we gave up finding places to drive.

This is the only place we went this year that we had been to before, we had visited The BIG Sheep last year and all had so much fun we just had to come back. When we had previously visited I had really wanted to watch the duck trials and thanks to L only managed about 60 seconds of it, so I had to come back and husb had really wanted to ride the roller coaster but it wasn’t quite finished, so he had to come back and well L just wanted to give the sheep their tea, so clearly he had to visit as well.

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends to help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

It’s not all be bad though, here are my top 10 moments from the past 7 days;

We went to Watermouth Castle on our first full day in Devon, following two days of travelling and therefore two nights in different bedrooms we picked Watermouth Castle because it was literally 5 minutes from Sandaway Beach Holiday Park where we staying. I liked the idea that we could have a lazy morning and head there for when it opened, stay as long as L wanted and then be back to the caravan in minutes for more laziness.  Continue reading Our Day at Watermouth Castle
