Our Summer Bucket List!


A way back I saw a few people is the US and Canada posting up "Summer Bucket Lists" (such as Jessica Scott) and I thought that it was a brilliant idea! As a family we are guilty of not doing as much as we could or should. I am the one full of big ideas, Hubby is the one who "ums" and "ahhs" about stuff until it's too late and it's all passed us by. Last summer - the first School Summer Holidays we had as our eldest moved up from nursery to reception - was a bit of a flop, so I decided that wasn't happening any more. I booked THIS YEARS summer holiday LAST YEAR and made sure it was paid off months ago and that there was money in a separate "holidays" bank account to make sure we have petrol money and admission fees covered.

Our Summer looks like this:


Anglesey for a long weekend. 


I loved it here as a kid!

  • Rhosneigr beach - where we got engaged
  • Newborough Warren beach - Coz it's beautiful and miles long
  • Hen Blas working farm & play zone - Kids will LOVE it what ever the weather
  • Sea Zoo - Ditto

France to Visit Papee & Mamee


I've not made any specific plans for here. My Dad & his Missus are enjoying making their own list of things they'd like to do with the kids

Uncle Bob & Aunty Rach's Wedding


Just being part of this will be fab

Blackpool 


Maybe an overnight stay? Although we live close enough to make two trips
  • The Zoo! 
  • Sea-life Centre
  • Donkey rides on the beach

LOCAL!


Sunny days
  • The Orchard & Fairfield Park
  • Happy Mount Park
  • Morecambe Beach
  • Williamson's Park & Butterfly House
  • Old Holly Farm

Wet Days
  • Wacky Warehouse
  • Giggles
  • The Zone
  • Brewster's

It's not going to be easy to fit it all in, mainly because I'm going to be working for a lot of it, but Anglesey, France the Wedding are sorted. Blackpool should be easily squeezed in, and the rest... well, I'll do my best! I have until the 2nd week in September to cram it all in!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
