Enjoying a rainy Sunday

Weekends tend to be a time for days out as a family. They usually include a walk with Pluto and we like to be outdoors. Today though, the weather was looking dreadful so in contrast to our usual weekends, we headed into town. 

Both girls had a nice lazy morning listening to some music before we went anywhere. Lia in particular was thrilled by her first experience of listening to music on headphones.

The next exciting thing was a ride on the train. Libby has always been a huge fan of trains and she’s getting Lia in on the excitement of train rides!

I’m not sure why they both look like scarecrows on this particular train! 

After our train ride, the girls had been invited to meet the Honey Monster on his grand tour. Sugar Puffs have been rebranded as Honey Monster Puffs and the sugar content has been reduced, with the honey content being raised by 20%. 

So the Honey Monster is touring the country to tell everyone about it!

I’m not really into sweet cereal for breakfast and these are a lot less sweet than the old sugar puffs so I much prefer the taste. Obviously, the fact they contain less sugar is great too.

I quite like them as snacks for the girls without milk, they’re much better than sweets or biscuits but quite good snacks to fill up on. 

I also loved that when the girls received their goody bags, the gentleman who was chatting to us about the new product told Libby all about bees and how we should be good to them because they make the honey. What a fabulous message. 

After our meeting with the honey monster, we headed off for brunch at our favourite café in Worcester, Boston Tea Party before a spot of shopping and another train ride home. 

It was a lovely way to spend a rainy day and both girls slept all afternoon, I think all the excitement was a bit too much.

Libby is delighted that half term is over and she can go back to her usual activities tomorrow. I wonder whether the end of half term will be the source of such excitement when she starts school?

    Sounds like a lovely way to spend a Sunday. Me, I just did a bit of embroidery and worked on my blog while my daughter and her daughter played.

    Love the excited faces on the train. Must keep that cafe in mind for when we next go to Worcester city centre (we keep meaning to revisit Greyfriars).

      Oh we love Greyfriars too Erica, love visiting national trust properties. Yes I’d highly recommend Boston Teaparty. Also for lunch, there’s a Mexican called Chester’s near to Greyfriars which I love. Both have fabulous veggie & vegan menus 🙂
