We have had a mixed week of days out and lazy days at home. We were without our car for three days as it needed a new middle rear seat belt (it just stopped working for some odd reason) and an MOT. It took three days (yes you heard right) three days for them to replace it. I felt like I had been transported back to the 1970's when our only means of transport was on foot or waiting an age for a bus (we have a very rural bus service to our village). Anyway the kids managed to scoot everywhere whilst I hot footed behind them. We enjoyed some activities at the local library on a couple of the days which is always fab and free too.
We managed to get to Cadbury's world and had a really nice day out with the In-laws. We had lots of free chocolate and enjoyed our little tour round learning all about the the history of chocolate and we all enjoyed the part when you get to drink melted chocolate with your own choice of topping. I went for marshmallows, a little girl in front of me actually chose liquorice all sorts in hers - yuk, yuk, yuk.
Here's Daisy Doo sat by a mock up of an old Cadbury's advert.
We managed to meet my oldest friend and her two little ones at the Odds Farm Park which is a rare breads farm just five minutes from our house. We had a lovely if not rather cold day there.
I loved this old fella, I think he has a really sweet face. Daisy is mad about horses and rides each week. Unfortunately both of them are really allergic to horses. Daisy has to take antihistamines before each lesson.
I liked the chickens too, I would love to keep them but P loves his garden too much and would hate the damage they would do to his plants, not to mention the chicken poo.
This fella was most definitely in charge bossing all the hens around.
Its been a glorious day here today, really warm and sunny. I had arranged to meet my sister at 9.30 am to go off for a mooch around a large car boot sale. P was tasked with taking the little ones to the cinema to finally see Nanny McPhee. P hates car booties with a passion and would much rather scoff sweets and watch a good film.
