Half Term Outdoor Fun.....

The weather has been so rubbish lately and we have not been outside much at all....The school run and that's about it.....Half term was this last week and we knew we had to get out and about...We couldn't have the kids cooped up indoors for a full week...

I'm glad to say every day this week they have been outside....

Scooting up and down the front street......It's the only time I will let them play out the front....We live on a terraced street with a road at each end so there is no fear of them being hit by cars.....It's just the other kids around here.....Horrible children!! If I don't see my two going past the front window every few minutes I'm at the front door hunting them down and making sure they are not getting into trouble!! 

They've played outside in the back yard with all the plant pots and tubs which were full of water.....They had loads of fun but came in soaking!! 

Stu took the girls up the street to buy some Turps (We've been decorating) and of course they bumped into Peppa Pig and George again....This time with the added bonus of Bob The Builder.... It must be the sixth or seventh photo we have of them but the kids get so excited every time they see the pigs....hehehe

We've been to the park a couple of times.....It's starting to look more like spring out there.....Well during the day it is....The days are getting longer and the is shining more....Although I am sat here Friday evening typing this with the rain beating against the window and the wind blowing a gale out there....lol

The girls took their scooters with them when we went shopping on Thursday.....I wanted some Fabric Dye from Wilkinsons to dye our curtains.....This trip our nearly resulted in Stu get in trouble with the police....

Our high street is closed to traffic during the day unless it's a delivery van....It's a pedestian..We were walking down the street and happened to be level with one of those community police officers when 3 lads on the back of a horse and cart came trotting along the main street.....They went off the road and onto the pavement and I had to shout to my girls to move....The police officer didn't bat an eyelid and had no intention of doing anything until Stu kicked up a fuss....Stu's point was that if a car had came down the street and drove onto the pavement there would be hell on.....Three chavs on a horse and cart and it's fine....Stu asked the police officer what he was going to do and he said nothing!! There's nothing they can do as it would cause more danger to pull them over...He asked the police officer if he was having a laugh and called him an imbecile which he wasn't too happy about...We just walked off...I just think the police officer must of been scared of horses!! 

Afterwards the girls did have fun scooting outside of Wilkinsons.....The perfect place to blow off some energy....Very flat with not to many people about!!

  3. How lovely to have pavements near that the children can use for scooting. Something we definitely lack. #CountryKids

  4. Love those scooters. We have spend the second half of the week at Nick's Mum and she has 3 scooters for the grandchildren which have been in constant use around the close here too. Pah to the police officer scared of horses!
