It seems like ages since I wrote a post about our family life, I sometimes forget that although my blog is about our frugal endeavours it’s also a place to document our memories for our children to look back on, so I thought I would share what we got up to in the February half term.
I used to share a lot of these types of posts but they got lost somewhere along the way so I’m bringing them back as they do fit the theme of my blog as the things we do as a family are usually planned around a budget.
FrugalMrW had the half term week off work so we planned to make the most of it, we got lots of house things done but we made sure we also dedicated time to doing things as a family.
We took advantage of the brighter weather and visited the local park a few times.
Daisy did her homework, she had to make a South Africa themed hat for world book day, we love crafts in our house so we had great fun cutting, glueing, colouring and designing.
Towards the end of the week FrugalMrW used his matched betting profits to buy us a second hand car. It’s been tough without one and we intend to make the most of it by getting out as much as possible, visiting free or cheap places of course.
We visited my brother, his wife and their beautiful baby girl, we called in on my biggest girl, her partner and my gorgeous grandson it’s so nice to have the freedom to do this again.
On Sunday we went for a very muddy walk at Pennington Flash which is a nearby country park, there is a large lake, a play park for the children and a lovely trail to follow round the park.
FrugalMrW took the kids off to a soft play centre one afternoon so I could catch up on some work which was much appreciated, they had a lovely time and the centre didn’t charge for Jake which was a bonus.
We had such a lovely week and I didn’t want it to end, I’m already planning things for us to do next half term.
What did you get up to in the school holidays ? leave me a comment below I love hearing from you.
