February Half Term

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

I am linking up with Fiona from Country Kids From Coombe Mill, which is all about getting outside with the kids and having fun! That is something we love doing here and try and get out on a regular basis.

Saturday 23rd February 2013

It has been a funny one this half term. The weather has been cold and bright so we have spent quite a bit of time outside, even though Ben has had a sore tongue, which has made it hard for him to eat and drink anything and has resulted in practically no sleep for me for three nights which is probably why I have come down with a stomach bug and am writing this after a long day of feeling unwell, but hopefully on the mend.

Went out on bikes and scooters to the park this morning. Played pooh sticks on the way.
Megan was sleeping at nanas tonight so she went there after lunch while the rest of us went shopping.

We picked Megan up and went to the fish shop to buy some new fish for our tank. The tank is in the kitchen, it used to be tropical and is a bit of a mix at the moment, which surprisingly works.
We then had a McDonalds as a treat.
Ben was at a birthday party, so we went there and Megan decided to go to the park with auntie laura, Jack and Grace. Finished off with blowing bubbles in the garden before it was too dark.

Megans friend was coming for a sleepover so we picked her up and popped to a friend of mine who I haven't seen for a while for catch up.
Home with giggly girls, who were making each other up! They had a lovely evening together and I think they dropped off about 10.30pm. Not to late!

We went out to Wythenshawe Park with S and K and all 7 children on bikes, scooters, balance bikes etc. Lovely day again but very cold.
We had a picnic lunch, a play in the play area, a walk around the farm and a ride round the park itself.
We then headed to The Coach House, which is a Brewers Fayre with a soft play area for our complimentary meal as our Christmas meal there was such a disaster. Let's just say it wasn't success and we won't be returning there again. Shame really when we have been there so many times and always had a Christmas get together there. We will have to have a look for somewhere similar for next Christmas.

Grace and Jack were here today so after lunch we headed to the other park for a play. We went in the car as it was so cold and I knew Ben wouldn't walk that far not feeling well.
We didn't stay too long as it was cold!

Ben still wasn't well so we had a lazy morning. We baked soda bread and made soup.
After lunch we went to the community centre for an afternoon of family fun. Loads of activities, all free of charge, face painting, glitter tattoos, decorate your own plant pot and fill it, make a moctail, circus skills, making things out of recycled materials, Megan made a purse out of a juice carton! And loads more!

We should of been going to MOSI today with mum and Laura, but Megan went as me and Ben weren't feeling well enough.
They had a lovely time, we always do when we go there.
So that's the week so far, and we have still got the weekend to go, which I think will be quietish before back to school and playgroup next week.

  1. Considering you and Ben have been poorly you've had a busy week. It's been great to be out even if it is cold, the children don't mind as they are on the move all the time. Thanks for linking to Country Kids.
