I must admit , I am a little bit of a hermit when it’s so cold, I love nothing more than to snuggle up on the sofa with the girls - blankets and duvets and watch movies .

I am making more of a conscious effort to get out more as when we are out : rain or shine , we actuall have such a great time and it’s so good for you too!.

Now Nila is finally walking confidently it’s so lovely getting out with her as she wants to get out the buggy and go strolling with her big sisters.

We took a trip to the charity shop first and got a few books , I love stocking up our little library with books from the charity shop , there are so affordable and no doubt I will always find one the girls really want :)

I also picked up a mama bear tshirt for myself for £3, which I LOVE!.

We picked up a few essentials from the co-op - milkshakes :), some eggs for our quiche for tea and a few treats as daddy had given them some money for a treat .

The park was empty- which is always a bonus! . Nila went straight for the swings as that’s her favourite thing to do!. ‘Yeah yeah’ is what she says if she wants something which is so blinking cute!.

She also tried to swing upsy daisy in the swing which was pretty funny!

Lessie’s priority was drinking her fudge milkshake - 9 years old and a love for milkshakes? I’m sure that’s a thing right ?

She loves the roundabout and goes until she feels sick , rather her than me! And she’s really been enjoying going down the slide with her little sister. They have such a lovely bond and it’s lovely watching them play and grow together .

We spent an hour and a half just having fun and being silly and it really was what we all needed. I must admit I was looking forward to a nice cup of tea when we got home :)

Safe to say the girls are now flat out in my bed - we’re having a sleepover and it’s been one lovely Saturday ..


  1. What a lovely day! It's so important to get outside, whatever the weather. Makes those indoor snuggles feel even better when you're home again :-)

  2. Sounds like a fun day. I love it when the park is empty it's easier to watch the kids especially if they want to go one different toys. I have 3 so my eyes have to be everywhere. Ha, not surprised they fell asleep fast.

  3. Ahhh I feel like we haven’t been to the park in an age life has been so busy but I can’t wait to go hang out in the park this half term!

  4. It sounds a fun day for you and the girls.

  5. Awww I had an upsy daisy similar when I was younger x We need to invest in park life a bit more ;) x

  6. Sounds like a lovely day. Sometimes we don't feel like leaving the house when it's cold out but if we do, and we go to the park or the beach, we always enjoy it and come back happier than if we'd stayed in.

  7. With so many gadgets we have the tendency to stick indoors however the great outdoors is so much for fun and all that fresh air must do them good

  8. I try and get the kids out for most of the weekend. Otherwise they go a bit stir crazy! Sounds like you had the perfect Saturday x

  9. Awww looks like fun. My kids love going to the park.

  10. Looks like you had a fab afternoon at the park. Sometimes the simple family moments are the best xx

  11. I love days like this, so relaxing and good to spend quality time with the kids

  12. Sometimes the most simple afternoons are the best,, we love spending time at our local park - always lots of fun
