Lambourn open day – meet the horses family fun

Meeting horses at Lambourn open day - Bubbablue and me

As a child I loved horses and always wanted to learn to ride. But my ballet teacher put her foot down – no riding if I was learning ballet with her.

A first Legoland adventure

It seems like ages ago that we went to Legoland, although it was after half term.  Time flies when you’ve got blog posts to write!  We’d received vouchers after writing my bucket and spade list post, and I’d decided on the day after half term as a good day to go.  Someone had told me that Mondays were generally quiet in term time so we packed our bag, sun lotion and drinks and off we drove.

We’ve been out and about quite a lot lately at weekends, catching up with our online friends.  One place we visited was Bucklebury Farm Park, near Reading.  It was free for N to get in and about £8 for adults so not a bad price for everything there is to see & do.  Luckily it was a clear day, but absolutely freezing so not that brilliant for playing outside (although N doesn’t seem to feel the cold too badly). Now… Continue Reading “Bucklebury Farm Park”
