Half term ended just the way it started – with lots of fun and chaos. It’s amazing how quickly a week can fly by when you’re enjoying yourself. None of us were ready for school to start again. Here’s a very brief video of what we’ve been up to. Now it’s over, we’re ready for the next school holidays. Roll on Easter!
Exploring new places
Isn’t it strange how you can overlook places that are on your doorstep? On Friday, we were meeting some friends. They suggested meeting at Witley Court, which is a local English Heritage site about half an hour away from home. And ridiculously, I’d never been there before.
It’s safe to say, we will definitely be back. It’s just our sort of place. There are walking trails that children can cycle, it’s dog friendly, there’s a beautiful lake and a rather stunning old building which sadly is a ruin these days. We’ll be getting English Heritage membership next month and I can’t wait to explore all the other places we’ve been missing out on.
Making the most of old favourites
We’ve had quite a bit of snow here recently. Not much that has settled, but enough to make the Malvern hills look utterly beautiful. So, I’ve been getting up there both with the children and since they’ve gone back to school.
Mornings tend to be rather chaotic here, as I’m sure they are for most families with young children. Yesterday morning started with Lia sitting in a drawer and getting stuck. By the time I’ve done the school run, I’m ready to blow away the cobwebs with a walk on the hills. Even if the dogs weren’t delighted when I dragged them up there in temperatures of -4. Don’t worry, they had coats on.
Our Thursday photo #199
I’ve taken lots of photos of the girls this week, not least the ones of them in their gorgeous flower girl dresses. But I had to share this one of them in their lovely Tiny Trolls of Norway snowsuits, wrapped up warm and off to explore Witley Court.
