Docker Park Farm during October Half Term

We went to Docker Park Farm this Summer and the kids had an awesome time, so I had promised them a return trip at Half Term.

This time Nana came with us, and because it's Autumn now - and dark and damp - the prices are slashed. Adults go free, and kids aged 2+ are only £5!

The paddocks are closed at this time of year, but the play areas are still open and you can still visit the pigs, goats, and petting zoo animals. These are my boys favourite parts so it's perfect for us.

We were lucky to have a bright and sunny, if cool day. But it wouldn't have mattered if it had been pouring with rain because pretty much everything is under cover.

The boys had a brilliant time playing in the barns and riding about on the tractors. Me and Mum managed to sit back and relax with a couple of extremely nice coffees and catch up on all the gossip confident that the boys were adventuring in safety.

We did also treat them to lunch in the cafe - the food is lovely - and they had a play with some of the toys in there and did word searches and puzzles in the warm. Jack even managed to lean a new word: chitting (we had to Google that). Mum and I spoiled our selves with a slice of home made pumpkin pie, which was just delicious!

It's a brilliant day out. And if you managed to get there on Halloween this year they are having a Halloween Crafts day - at no extra cost.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
