August Lookover Part Two

23rd - We are off on a tiny adventure, we are going to stay at my sister's house in Braintree for two nights. I am looking after my two nephews, well my sister has work very early in the morning. I'm looking forward to spending some time with them, but one thing about my nephews is they wake up very early. And I am not an early bird person.
On a different note my eBay sales have been great recently. I like the way it's going, that's with me and for once one thing is going nicely. I like to try and do something different, but still do all the other things too. So I just need to work out what it's going to be.

26th -  I feel absolutely knackered, I have just spent the past two days looking after my two very energetic nephews, that like waking up at 6 o'clock in the morning. I love them both to bits but they really need to learn to lay in a bit. They were very good for me even though the little one likes to moan a lot and he always asks for food. I am just glad I'm back in my own house and mainly my own bed, there's nothing like your own bed. Everything is packed away from a few days there and I've had a nice relaxing bath, while Mr P cooks ravioli from scratch with Little Miss P. I'm really looking forward to it as I am really hungry.
  It's the last week of Little Miss P being off school before she goes back for the new term. She is now to be year five. My plan for the next week is to make it as fun as possible

29th - Today was an on unexpected day, I didn't realise my mum was off work for a week and she wanted to see Little Miss P and I so we went into Romford for some shopping.  I got Little Miss P some new school shoes that are size 3 in the adult range in Sainsbury's, which I find a little crazy. They are very cute though. I also picked up two set of PJs, they are the same as each other one for me and one set for Little Miss P and they are for our Disney trip next year, they are cute.

Love
Mrs P

Here is what Little Miss P got got for her birthday hope you enjoy

Family Holiday


So this year our family holiday was to Scotland, I have never been to Scotland before so I was looking forward to the adventure. The thing I wasn't looking forward towards to was the car ride. Seven hours in the car isn't what I call fun so we decided to break up the journey.

On day one we drove to the Lake District and stayed in a Premier Inn. We actually drove to Lake Windermere and jumped on a boat for a ride on the lake and went to the aquarium. And had a nice pub dinner.

Day two was the rest of the drive, to Forest holidays Scotland, never actually had a Forest holidays before so we weren't too sure what to expect. When we turned up the place was beautiful, and the lodge that we stayed in was beautiful as well. We had a hot tub, log burning fire, a very spacious front room and kitchen, perfect for a few days there. As soon as we got all our bags in we went straight in the hot tub. The rest of out time in the Lodge we stayed onsite or just went outside it. As we were staying in one of Scotland's national parks we went off on a venture up, well in the mountains. We didn't go all the way up but I'm pretty sure we got halfway up. We also went out with Ranger Jack who showed us how to make a fire, what types of leaves we could eat, and what healing powers some other plants have. We even made a tent by the loch, roasted marshmallows and had pine tea. It was a great two hours. We even went to the quiz night, didn't do too great but the whole fun of it is actually just having a laugh.

For one night we stayed at a Hilton hotel in the Cairngorms, it was a lovely drive to get there as we went past Ben Nevis and Lock Ness but we didn't see the Loch Ness monster sadly. The hotel that we stayed in was fantastic the kids. It had a play group that the kids can go to for free for two hours between a certain time. Also there was a disco for the kids and a decent size swimming pool, plus a really good park and other little things. Food was good as well, one night we had Italion style buffet and breakfast was a buffet style too. Nice and easy when you have kids in tow.

I would definitely like to go to Scotland again and maybe stay in the Cairngorms a bit more.
