The start of Easter. . . . .

Yes, we are finally off school for 'Easter'. I know Easter was a few weeks ago but at our school we only had Friday and Monday off school. So we are now off for two whole weeks!!

Saturday was full of jobs, washing, shopping, etc.

But today we headed out to the local nature reserve.

We spotted our first bluebell of the year!!

Its so nice to be out and about, often I'm at the back of the group, trying to take photos then rushing to catch up!!

We had a look around the Crafty Vintage Fair and a lovely chat with Sarah from Mitenska who had a stall full of beautiful drawings and printed artwork. 

No visit to Brockhole would be complete without calling at the huge park, today's favourite was the zip wire (over large muddy puddles)

Then home for a late lunch, followed by pottering in the garden.

If the next two weeks can be similar then that will be great. . . . . . 

If you fancy looking at a couple of previous visits you can find them here and here.

    1. It's a lovely place to visit on a calm day, but when it's windy it's freezing. The wind whistles down the valley and there's very little shelter. Those are the days you really need a hot chocolate in the cafe, definately no ice creams!! Sarah

  2. It was great to meet you! I didn't get the chance to get outside for a walk, sadly... Bit of a shame as I spotted some wildflowers growing on my way in and would have liked to explore.

    1. It was really nice to meet you and put a face to your blog!! Maybe you'll get chance to visit as a family, leave the boys on the park and have a walk around with your camera! Sarah
