Half Term Fun

It doesn't seem 5 minutes since Christmas and already we are at February half term! I was off work too this week which was nice, we had something planned every day so it was a very busy school holiday.

Monday morning Courtney was at nursery (it's a private nursery so is open all year round) so Charlie and I did some jobs. In the afternoon we had our long awaited dentist check up. I say long awaited as our November appointment was cancelled due to the dentist going into hospital, the second appointment was made for December but it coincided with one of Charlie's Christmas school activities so we cancelled. They then said they'd ring us back as their bookings needed changing around. They never did so I rang and made this appointment when we came home from holiday. 

Tuesday morning we met up with Kathryn, Jessica and Daniel in Happy Mount Park. We played on the swings and went into the cafe, for some reason I didn't take any photos that day.

Wednesday we met up with Judith, Terrina and Deborah with their children. It was a pleasant day, just a bit chilly so we braved the promenade! All the children took their scooters or prams. I felt for Charlie as he doesn't have a scooter, he was quite happy to push along his trolley though. We almost got a full house for this photo but Rebecca was still busy scooting, bless her!

This area used to be an outdoor swimming pool and they now use it for a travelling fairground, when the fairground isn't there it make and ideal playing area for scooters! After chilling ourselves to the bone we went along to the Eric Morecambe cafe, all the children sat together in this booth, there was no escaping my camera now! (the adults sat in the booth next to them!)

Thursday was Charlie and Mummy's day! Courtney was at nursery again so I gave him the choice of activity. He chose swimming. I'd told him if he tried hard and showed me some things he'd been doing in his lesson he could have a scooter as a half term treat. I'd looked online and realised it was an inflatable session at our local pool. We didn't let that put us off and we were able to swim quite freely really, just the occasional float came our way. We had a play with a circular one chasing each other around it. I fulfilled my promise on the way home. We picked up a bargain really, the scooter was reduced from £10 to £8. Mark finished in time to pick Courtney up so we all went together and took her scooter too for a little walk along the prom.

Friday was an exciting day, we'd booked tickets to see a Blunderbus production of 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark.' We picked Courtney up early from nursery and went to the Platform in Morecambe. There was only 3 people starring in the show and as we arrived they were going around the audience interacting with both the children and adults. They then incorporated some names into the production. It was excellent, a lovely story very nicely performed and it had everybody there enchanted.

The week whizzed by and soon it was time to think about uniforms and dinner money again, LOL!
