A day at Cliveden

Today I’m sharing some pictures of our lovely visit to Cliveden, a favourite National Trust property. Little Sis took her camera too.


We really wanted to see some bluebells, there weren’t as many as we hoped but we did see some.

A very rare family portrait.


We always love the maze at Cliveden. It felt like we were never going to find the centre but we did!

We also explored the adventure playground after our picnic. Little Sis was so happy she was able to climb this strange net.


We had a lovely day, can’t wait to go back again soon.

The park, swimming and a ride on the train

We heard that our local park had had a bit of a makeover so, as the sun was shining, we decided to go and check it out. We took the bikes too so they cycled round the park a few times first. Then it was time to explore the new playground.

Everything had been replaced and there was plenty to keep them busy and test their skills. The playground is always full of people and the children had so much fun trying everything out. One of us may have got stuck at the top of the climbing frame but his younger sister showed him how to get down!

After their weekly swimming lesson we headed to Roxbourne Model Railway which has recently opened for the year. We all had a ride on the train before enjoying an ice cream and heading home after a busy day.

Clangers, Bagpuss & Co. at the Museum of Childhood

Today we ventured over to the other side of London to see a very special exhibition.

Both the children like the Clanger so I knew they would enjoy the latest exhibition at the Museum of Childhood – Clangers, Bagpuss & Co.

After we had looked round the exhibition we explored the rest of the museum. The children found plenty to keep them busy.


After lunch in the cafe we took the bus to Spitalfields, the children got to sit upstairs on the bus which they loved!
