When the children were little I used to really plan for the summer holidays, sorting places to visit, people to see, wet weather fun & free things to do both indoors & out.
Now the boys are older they want to spend less time with us & more with their friends which I totally understand.
This gives me more time with my girl & with the help of Groupon we have had some great days out.
We queued together when Coke came to Coventry.
Got our names on Coke :)
We went to the Toft Alpaca Farm on their open day, toured the farm & harness walked an alpaca.Enjoyed the sunshine.
Made a needle felted alpaca on a half day course there.
Today we went on a half day cupcake icing course & learnt new techniques to give our baking a professional finish.
Then brought home our examples to sample later ;)
There are still a few weeks left & I have a few more ideas of Grand Days out to share x
