Project Life 2013: Week 8

Half Term Holidays can be so much fun.

Monday we headed off to a National Trust - Cliveden House. We started from the Woodlands Car Park and walking into the estate before enjoying a coffee. We walked around the grounds, through the maze and playpark, before heading back to the car park - 5 miles was exhausting but fun.

Tuesday was spend with Friends in our local park and on the scooter/ramp park. We've also been lucky with the un-usual warm weather. Phil and Tom ventured out of a bike ride in the afternoon. Such lovely weather

Wednesday we headed off to York with a school friend to visit the Jorvik Viking Museum. I have to admit it is interesting, but i'm not sure if the wait outside (in the freezing cold) or the shortness of the attraction that makes it a bit disappointing. Luckily we had found a free child voucher on-line before we left. It was Viking Week in York and Tom just as much enjoyed all the free attractions. After lunch we found some Sword Combat Training in The Merchant Adventurer's Hall, they kids loved it. Such a fab day, just ashame it was bitter cold.

Thursday - Homework and a day chilling at home after Tom miss-behaved a bit yesterday. He has been told how we feel and now has to earn treats. We visited Great Gran and Granny and Grandad Moore

Friday - we took a drive out to a cold Buxton in the Peak District. We enjoyed playing the Yellow Car Game on Route - Tom won by: 19, Phil 18, Tracey 10.  (I'm hoping to include this in a future week). We enjoyed coffee and feeding the ducks in the Pavilion Gardens. On the way to tea we found a park (Whitworth) in Darley Dale where Tom enjoyed riding his scooter on the bowl. For tea we met up with Aunty Clare and Uncle Matt. I can't believe how cold it was today, brrrrrrr - it even started snowing!

Saturday - was a girls day Scrapbooking, Tom played nicely while we all enjoyed our challenge of making a list about us to match our age. Thanks for joining me Clare and Liz. Lets hope next time we meet one of you can come up with a challenge. See my previous blogs for the pages I made. We also had friends visit for take-out Chinese tea.

Sunday - Phil and Tom head out to the local ramp park for Tom to practice more on his Scooter, I was cleaning the house. After a cooked Sunday lunch Toms friend came to play while we enjoyed tea and a natter. Tonight has been playing board games before returning to work tomorrow.

Phew - what a fab week!!!!!!

I've found this week hard with little motivation for completing the page so i'm pleased I'm finished. Having said that I am enjoying the challenge of documenting my week. Ive managed to catch up with being a week behind, I wonder what the future holds. :) :)
