Cumbria, here we come!

We are hoping it will be a lot easier to get in the car and head out and find a little gem tucked away somewhere, or find a little spot to throw stones.

Nainy overboard…

She went in too heavy and hopped into the boat. As she did, her end sank down and then bounced up sending Nainy overboard.

A big muddy walk and tantrums…

It’s been a good seven months since our last intentional muddy puddle day so with the weather forecast set to be wet we booked one in. We headed to Brockholes with the aim of walking around the largest pit. There is so much wildlife to see as you walk around there and it worked so…

Muddy socks and a LOT of laughter…

If you get the chance, let your kids run around bare foot in the rain. It’s something they won’t forget easily and helps to teach them that it’s ok to get a bit dirty sometimes.

All alone in the deep, dark wood, well not quite…

Last minute Blackberry picking

We came back from holiday yesterday and had planned on getting on with some housework and resting up today but at about 2pm I decided we should take advantage of the early crop of blackberries that have appeared so we put on our wellies and headed out towards the woods at the back of our…
