Happy Half-Term

We've spent a very happy half-term this February.

We discovered Kilkenny Lane Country Park & Adventure Playground in Oxfordshire.  The dogs were walked, the children were able to whoop & run to their hearts content amongst the climbing frames.  We took a flask and slices of banana & coconut loaf to enjoy, a snack always keeps everyone going longer.

We took a small detour home via the lovely village of Shilton where we popped into the Rose & Crown & sat in front of their lovely log fire!

We've enjoyed lots of pyjama days & movie nights, with homemade popcorn & hot chocolate with marshmallows & whipped cream, of course!  One of our favourite movies was the Bridge to Terabithia.  It was incredibly sad towards the end but my children (6, 8 & 9 years) loved it.

 We also enjoyed a night at our own villages production of Sinbad.  Sorry no photo's of this one.  We go every year & throughly enjoy the evening.  It was very Jam & Jerusalem.  If you ever watched the Jam & Jerusalem Christmas Special you'll know exactly what I mean!

I've even managed some knitting!

Hope you've all enjoyed your half-term too.

Happy Saturday's!

It's crisp, cold & sunny outside.  The ground is covered in snow.  We're tucked up warm & cosy inside.  There's a banana & coconut loaf in the oven & 'You've Got Mail' is on the telly - my all time favourite movie ever.
