Adventures with Auntie
Tuesday looked promising – the skies were bright blue and the sun was shining. Unfortunately though, the wind was blowing a gale! We went to the beach at Swanage but only managed to eat our crunchy sandy-sandwiches and build a quick castle before we retreated!
We passed a play park, so little one had to have a go on the swings:
And then we convinced her it was time to get out of the blustering wind. She approved of the shelter we chose though – a chocolate shop and cafe called Chococo. We shared this rather yummy fondue:
And then went to Durlston Country Park to try and pick more blackberries. They weren’t ripe enough there yet though, so we just had a bit of a stroll:
Yesterday the weather decided to switch back to monotonous rain again, so we went to Southampton for the day. We wandered around the shops, and had lunch in an italian cafe:
The rain was horrid on the way home, but we got back to slow cooked lamb which I’d put in before we left, so that cheered us up. Then we continued the Disney theme into the evening after little miss had gone to bed – we played Disney Monopoly and Disney Trivial Pursuit. I lost the first horribly, but won the second, so it was all good!!
I have managed to finish one more scrapbook page, which I shall try and post later. Bye for now! xxx
