With the kids back at school today, I am looking back on what feels like the longest Easter Holidays ever!
So much seems to of happened in the space of two weeks. My life has quite literally been turned upside down lately but as one door closes another opens so I am trying to take all these changes in my stride.
We have new adventures ahead of us and I am so excited about what the rest of this year has in store, I will go into a little more detail soon but for now I want to share the fun from the Easter break!
We got off to a slightly rough start; Bella was so under the weather. She’s not the type to admit she’s unwell so she hid it until she threw up all over my car – yay! It wasn’t even due to chocolate consumption she hadn’t actually touched any of her eggs. Poor little mite spent the next day and a half in bed with a temperature though.
We did managed to enjoy a little egg hunt in the house, I kept Maisy and Lottie entertained with some arts and crafts.
Once she perked up again we headed over the Kingston Lacy to do their egg hunt. It was really good fun, we’ve done it in the past years and the trail can be a little long. This year they got it spot on and the girls really enjoyed their chocolatey treat at the end. It felt amazing to get out and get some fresh air after being cooped up.
Next we headed to Paultons Park for the day with Save The Children. This was as part of their Muddy Puddle Walk campaign. From 23rd-29th April Save The Children are encouraging families/nurseries/schools to get out and raise money on their own muddy puddle walks! It’s an amazing way to raise money and support vulnerable children around the world.
For me its also a really nice way to teach children about the importance of charitable giving, to help them understand that not everybody in this world is as fortunate as them and see that it is important to always help others.
You can still sign up for your own Muddy Puddle Walk at muddypuddlewalk.org.
We had a fab day with Peppa and George and managed to fit in lots of rides as well. My girls are such little thrill seekers. Unlike me, I like me feet firmly on the ground.
We headed to our local trampoline park to bounce off some energy, the girls love visiting the trampoline park we try and visit every half term!
We also managed to fit in a day out at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. You might remember me raving about it last year after a press trip but it really is such a great day out for all the family. We went with my dad and had so much fun exploring the ships and enjoying the sunshine! I have a new vlog up of the day you can catch here.
It was on this day that I started suffering with my back again, being stubborn as I am I tried to ignore the achey pain and keep going as usual but it wasn’t my best move as I’ve been pretty much sofa bound for the past few days now. After an appointment with an osteopath this morning he confirmed it is a damaged disc and I really need to take it easy for a little while. So our holidays ended with lots of crafts/games and playing in the garden!
Although the last few weeks have been full of ups an downs it has been a really nice couple of weeks off with my girls!
Hope you guys all had a lovely half term too.
