Flea Market Fun!

On Bank Holiday Monday we took a trip to the Malvern Flea Market.

The weather was beautiful and we had great fun looking for interesting things.


All The Castles

For Pauly’s birthday, which also happened to be Easter Sunday, we went out to see a castle or two and eat a picnic. We had amazing sunny, warm weather for our trip.

First we went to Wigmore Castle. It was a nice walk from where we parked the car.

The castle might be ruins but there are many bits from various parts of the castle that give you a good sense of the scale of the site.

The views were stunning. We could see why they chose this location to build a castle!

It was a really pretty spot, great fun to explore.

Our next stop was Clun Castle, just a few miles away. This castle is also in ruins, but not spread out as far as Wigmore Castle.

This was another amazing location, situated within the Shropshire Hills AONB.

We were so lucky to have such good weather for this trip, it made a fun trip into a wonderful day out!

Family Weekend

Last weekend we went to visit ZoĆ« ‘s family. This meant a shopping trip to Brighton and picnicking!

A trip to Snoopers Paradise is always so much fun.

Lunch from Hell’s Kitchen was yummy! We had a big salad.

We did lots of shopping in the North Laines.

On Sunday we had a picnic on Ashdown Forest. It was grey and misty so we didn’t feel like going for much of a walk.

Weekend in Windsor

Last weekend we went to Windsor for a couple of days. We were very lucky with the weather, it was very warm and Sunny for February.

We stayed at the Castle Hotel, we had a nice room with views of the castle.

We ate at the hotel restaurant. The food was very good.

Saturday was really foggy. We went to the castle, it was excellent.

We even saw the Changing of the Guard.

The sun finally came out!

In the afternoon we walked the Long Walk from the castle to a statue of George III.

We had dinner at Meejana, a Lebanese restaurant. We had lots of mezze!

On Sunday we had breakfast at Bill’s.

After looking at a few final sights we went home.


On Saturday, Pauly and I took the train to Carlisle to watch some football. We travelled in first class!

We had to change at Preston.

We arrived in Carlisle around mid day.

We headed to Brunton Park to watch the match, the club were hoping to get over 8 thousand fans to come and watch, in the end, they promoted it so well, that over 10000 attended!

Unfortunately, though Carlisle United scored 2 goals, they didn’t win, but we had a good day out.
