Rollercoaster Dad and I then had a lazy Valentines day with a spot of shopping and lunch out followed by a rather wet drive to be reunited with the girls at Grandma's. There we made good use of her dog by taking him for some fabulous walks at a local Woodland Trust wood which has a lake, tunnels and rocks and all manner of exciting places to explore. I was planning a Country Kids post on these this week but it will have to wait until the girls go back to school as I just haven't had the time.
Back home chaos reigns. Remember that bathroom - well that's finished but we have started on Bigger Miss's bedroom - so they are still sharing and her furniture and stuff is filling our living room. What with that and working my normal days, half-term has been a little stressful at times but we have managed a couple of activities. Maybe next week normality will return...
|Frank Turner - epic gig at the Portsmouth Guildhall|
|Walking the dog with Grandma.|
|Sunshine (yay!) glinting on the water - I have dozens of photos from our dog walks last weekend but keeping the best for a Country Kids post!|
|We managed a home-made pizza one night after work and the girls loved designing their pizzas, something we have done lots of times before but not for a while (mental note - must do more often!)|
|In preparation for a much overdue review of the fabulous Florentine and Pig books we made Twinkly Jam Jar Lanterns (think I may be busy with all these posts next week!)|
For more half-term fun head on over to the Boy and Me:
