We have had a busy weekend. My cousins are back from uni and have spent this Saturday entertaining Bear and Bell for me. We have visited the horse’s at the local stables and we have gone to a play park around 15-20 minutes drive from our house where there is a huge sand pit!
My cousin has deiced to join the bubble society at her university (who knew?). We love bubbles especially Bell. They are so calming to watch floating away with not a care in the world. Its a beautiful sight especially when you catch the sunlight in the bubble it causes them to look a bit like a rainbow.
The play park has mini golf, a ice cream van and four different sections, which is great if you have mixed age children. I am always on tender hocks in busy place’s. I am terrified I will lose one of them! I love my little local park as I can see all the way round and not panic too much!
We have started our Summer Holiday homework. Bear is learning about Dinosaur’s when he goes back to school and has to do at least two of the 8 things on the list unless “parents” have some ideas. Just need to remember to take it in, when we go back in September!
I have realized I need to plan my blog’s more and do some on a more daily basics. I will certainly try, but with the 6 weeks holiday’s here I’m sure I won’t have a moment to myself!
We are so lucky to have a beautiful beach less than an hour away (depending on traffic). I have been going to Hastings since I was a baby, and I have since taken Bell and Bear there too! It has undergone many changes all for the better. There has always been the aquarium, little road train and of course the pier.
Unfortunately the pier has now gone, as there was a fire, but the aquarium is still there, along with the arcades, a medium size boating lake and a small funfair.
There is now a museum with modern art and it also has a ramp over the pebbles to make getting to the sea easier for those with buggies or a wheelchair. There is also a fab new (about 3/4 year old) play park with a sand pit as the beach is mainly pebbles.
It was so nice to see Bell and Bear together as this was around March/April time and Bear has been at school since the previous September.
We had so much fun! We played on the trampolines (they have been there since I was a tiddler) , played on the beach, visited the aquarium and the boat museum.
We also had fish and chips by the sea and played in the arcades. The arcades have lots of 10-20p machines where the little ones could win anything from a sweet to a teddy with a £5 note attached!
Cant’t wait till our next adventure there maybe we will venture up the North Hill lift and see the abbey…
