Day 187

Betty

Betty is making steady progress since her surgery. She runs about at speed on three legs but when she is walking slowly she puts her leg down and she is weight-bearing well. Hopefully her recovery is going well and she will be fit and well in the long-term.

A year in pictures – Day 236

Blackberry pickerToday we packed up and left the campsite and the kids mainly entertained themselves by playing with the children from the next door tent.

The Little Miss also worked out that the blackberries on the bushes are absolutely delicious!

A year in pictures – Day 234

Beach weather?!We decided to go to the beach on the day that showed the best weather.

Unfortunately it wasn’t true and sat on the beach in bright glorious sunshine whilst big raindrops rained on us! Typical!

Breakfast

The kids have been thoroughly enjoying themselves at this campsite. We are all sleeping fantastically well, partly because everyone is busy and tired but also because we are going to bed early.

Fire starter

One of the best things about this campsite is they have some fab firepits ready for a roaring fire!

Mrs Day is our resident pyromaniac so she was happy.

A year in pictures – Day 231

Watch out! Oh no!We are staying at a lovely campsite in the New Forest and we went out for the day to a local nature park.

We had a fab walk along the designated routes and saw lots of interesting scultures and things the kids could climb on. We also found a Gruffalo!

Fauxquet's Valley Campsite

We have had a fantastic time staying at Fauxquet’s Valley Campsite. The facilities are amazing with a lovely clean shower block as well as a brilliant swimming pool.

They also have a number of animals, chickens, geese, pigs, sheep and two lovely sheepdogs. The kids enjoyed feeding them. We will definitely be back.

Cabanon Pyramide 6

A few weeks ago we bought this rather retro but fabulous Cabanon Pyramide 6 tent so we thought we should go camping for a couple of nights to see if we could put it up without killing each other. I am happy to report that we had it up within half an hour and no husband or wife was harmed during the procedure!

It should do really nicely for our camping trip in the summer and it will be perfect for Greenbelt.

2016 Project366 (Day 230)

Slow wormUrgh. Today I had to pull my big girl pants up and deal with a massive slow worm on the patio.

The Little Miss came running in and told me that there was a “lo worm naughty cat” and I went outside to find Fat Eric watching his prey wriggling about. The slow worm was intact although it had lost it’s tail at some point. I managed to get it into a kids bucket and then I put it under the hedge.

I can totally appreciate how beautiful they are but the way they move really freaks me out! I am trying so hard to not let the kids see how much I dislike them though!

2014 Project365 (Day 145)

The Amaizin Adventure Park

Today we went to The Amaizin Adventure Park.

When we arrived it looked really quite shabby but there was loads of things for the kids (big and small) to do, including petting the animals, a tractor ride, pedal go-carts, a hobbit house, climbing frames, a gigantic inflatable slide and various inflatable bouncy castles and ball pools.

This photo kind of sums it up for me though and it has made me laugh every time I look at it. Everyone (bar me) went on this, but the thing that makes me laugh so much is the height that my sister got when jumping. It’s hilarious!
