holidays at home

We’re not going far this year so over the summer we’ve been enjoying the pleasures of trying to find things to do nearer to home to keep us and the kids amused.  We’ve popped down to Keswick a couple of times and had some great days out to Dynamic Earth, The Burrell Collection and Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery.

The thing is, and I know I sound like a grumpy old man now, but it COSTS A FORTUNE to stay at home!!!

Anyway, now that the complaining is out of the way, we’ve had, and continue to have, lots of fun.  We’ve gone to the local park and ridden our bikes and played football and camped (not in the local park!) and climbed hills and cruised in boats and met friends and eaten the best fish and chips and cakes.  And that was just this weekend.

Intrepid Climbers

We both have this week off work and college and the boys are here so hopefully lots more fun to come.

And we’re winning the Gadget Show competition this week so don’t bother entering.  Thanks.
