My Family Adventures {March 2017}

As you’re reading this I’m in Devon with my little crew for a much needed family holiday as March has just been a whirlwind of busy days and weekends. It doesn’t mean that we haven’t stopped and caught our breath, in fact there has been a lot of quality family time, but with really hectic work schedules, weekend and evening working, a weekend away for me and back to back birthday parties it’s just been one of those months  when we knew a holiday would be welcomed at the end of it

I started the month visiting my best friend who now lives in Cheshire for a girls weekend. We saw the Kaiser Chiefs in Manchester on Friday night, visited Blackpool for the day on Saturday, stopping with a quick sunset visit to Lytham St Annes, and then on Sunday we decided to visit the Peak District and got caught in heavy snow as we passed Mam Tor before going  home. It was a jam packed weekend but I loved every minute of it – life really is one big adventure and I love to explore new places

In the Peak District we visited Ladybower Reservoir which was simply stunning and worth stopping by at this time of year, beautiful views, peaceful atmosphere and bell mouths that were flushing water as fast as it could to below. Quite simply breathtaking and one place I would love to take my family when we all visit again

An indoors family adventure took place whilst I was away and the hubster and J (with the help of my mum) redecorated upstairs for me. I love my new office which is yet to be decorated and I adore the colours in my newly painted and furnished bedroom. J had quite a time using the roller and helping to paint and it was a lovely surprise to come back home to. It’s really nice to have a bedroom I actually want to sit in, and to finally have somewhere to hang my photos

Fast forward to the end of March and we are staying in the most beautiful barn conversion for our holiday home and arrived in the dark on Friday night. Waking up to fields and beautiful skies really made me smile and set the tone for our week ahead. I love being surrounded by fields and the smells and atmosphere of a working farm. Living close to a city means this is a real treat and I would quite happily pack up and move to the country although I’m not sure the hubster would welcome this way of life!

We decided to put our first sunny day to good use and visited Woolacombe Beach. It is by far my favourite beach and it always takes my breath away when I get out of the car and see sandy dunes, long stretch of golden beach and Baggy Point in the distance. We played in the dunes, soaked in the sun, and watched J and Lexi play constantly in the water. It really was the perfect afternoon

I couldn’t let this post end on Mothers Day without a mummy daughter photo we’ve taken this month, my girl and I sitting on a bench eating ice cream. I love this little girl of mine, she drives me a  bit crazy most days with her constant calls for me and non stop talking and questions but I  would be lost without her

April has our annual visit to York planned, Easter fun and some more quality time together on the remainder of our holiday. We’re hoping we can see the bluebells on a nice walk and have some more spring walks. Here’s to the second quarter of 2017.

  2. That photograph of your dog on the beach! Sooo cute! I’ve also never seen a bell mouth before – that looked like something from Star Wars! Glad you had a fun March – here’s to April!
