Getting ready for May Day

We’re staying at Nanny’s for ¬†few days and wanted to celebrate May Day tomorrow.

Nanny has a seasonal tree like ours so the children decorated it with little decorations and wrapped chocolates.


They decorated cakes with striped sweets like May Poles too and we watched May Pole dancing on YouTube to get us in the mood.

Ice skating at Whitehall Garden Centre

One thing we really wanted to try this year was ice skating! We stopped off at Whitehall Garden Centre on the way to Nanny’s house and surprised the children. We had lunch over looking the ice rink and both the children said they really wanted to try ice skating!

We went and collected our skates and skating aids.

The children loved sitting on the banana whilst the adults did all the hard work pushing them around.


Big Brother tried skating with the help of a penguin (and Daddy).


It was really good fun despite being busy with lots of other people, some of whom could skate a lot better than we could.

Family photo time

After a delicious family breakfast we all dressed up in our best Christmas jumpers for some family photos. I love this one of Big Brother with Nanny.


We all took this great one of everyone, I think everyone managed to look at the camera!


Then we headed back to Nanny’s house for a bit before a delicious lunch and home.
