My Great British Family Holiday #OMGBFamily

Rope Swing

I have very fond memories of holiday’s as a child and always looked forward to spending time with Great Auntie Kathleen and Great Uncle Len who lived in Somerford, then Hampshire.

The Stick Man Trail at Moors Valley 2016

The Stick Man trail was last at Moors Valley back in 2013 and the kids loved all the activities there were to do as we walked around the self-led trail and now it is back with new challenges and a new route to explore until the end of February and because the kids saw the film on Christmas Day they were even more excited to take part and of course Stick Man himself had to come with us. We planned… Continue Reading “The Stick Man Trail at Moors Valley 2016”
