Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about what’s in my bag. I’ve actually managed to make the switch to an actual adult bag. Still a rucksack, but a nice one. I don’t miss those changing bag days at all!

7 Reasons I love The Handmade Fair

A couple of weekends ago I headed off to The Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace. This is the second fair I have been to, having already been to The Handmade Christmas Fair in Manchester a few years ago.

We had an excellent time and the weather was kind to us. A couple of downpours, but they were short-lived and there was plenty of cover. Here are 7 reasons I love the Handmade Fair.

Gruffalo Spotting

Like most children of his age L is a big fan of the Gruffalo. In fact it’s not just him, we’re a family of Gruffalo admirers. It’s one of my favourite books to read to him. So when we were asked to try out Magic Light Pictures ‘The Gruffalo Spotter’ app, we straight away said yes. I’m always up for a bit of Gruffalo Spotting.

Our day at Beamish

When we went on holiday with Verdant Leisure we made the most of all County Durham had to offer, including a visit to Beamish. Well two actually! So I thought I’d write about our experience.

Feeling Calm
Even the weather was on our side. It may have been raining when we arrived but it was sunny by the time we left.

Our Visit to Castle Acre

Earlier in the year I treated us to English Heritage membership. To be fair it was a no brainer. Membership for two adults, with L free, is £30 in Tesco Clubcard Vouchers. So it was next to no money. L loves castles, English Heritage have a lot. It’s free days out for a year.

I’m going to try to write about all the properties we visit using our membership. What I liked, didn’t like, share some pictures. We’ve already made our money back on the membership, so I am very happy it is good value for money.
