My Sunday Photo – A Chilly Winter Walk

  • January 15, 2017

I haven’t joined up with the #MySundayPhoto linky for a while so thought I would today. The photo I’m linking up with was taken yesterday afternoon at Upton Country Park in Poole. We had a day with no plans which is very rare. Like many people at this time of year we’re trying not to spend much money so decided just to get out in the fresh air and go >>

We’re going on a bug hunt

  • April 24, 2016

Every so often Little H’s school sends home a “Home learning challenge” to complete over the weekend. This week we had to go and look for mini-beasts, so we headed down to the woods to do some exploring. Bug Hunting Little H had great fun lifting up logs and rocks with Daddy and finding bugs – while I stood a safe distance away! It was nice to see her getting >>

MySundayPhoto – Hengistbury Head

  • April 3, 2016

It looks like spring is finally here – the weather yesterday was beautiful sunshine and blue skies! My parents were looking after my 2 nieces for the day so we met up with them down at Hengistbury Head for  a little stroll and some fresh air.

My Sunday Photo – Lulworth Castle

  • March 27, 2016

On Good Friday we went to Lulworth Castle to take part in an Easter Egg Hunt. Unfortunately the hunt was a bit rubbish as it was a hunt for these teeny round discs which our 4 year old wasn’t particularly interested in! It was a lovely bright and sunny day though, and the castle and grounds are a great place to explore. As well as the castle there a church >>

Picture Perfect – Lulworth Cove

  • March 13, 2016

This weekend the weather was lovely, spring is definitely on it’s way! Today was the warmest day of the year so far, the sun was shining and the sky was blue, so we headed down to Lulworth Cove. Lulworth Cove is in one of the most beautiful areas in Dorset, on the Jurassic Coast about 20 miles outside of Poole. It’s a pebble beach so not the most comfortable to sit >>

No Snow In Poole!

  • March 6, 2016

Unlike the rest of the country we’ve had no snow in Poole this week, we very rarely get any snow down here on the South Coast. It doesn’t mean it’s been warm though. Yesterday we went for a walk down at Sandbanks beach – with the bright sunshine and blue sky it looks like a lovely summer’s day but it was really, really windy and absolutely freezing. We certainly got our >>

Corfe Castle is a great place to take the kids and go and explore. This week I’m linking up to My Sunday Photo with this photo looking out over the village of Corfe from one of the windows in the castle.   >>
