Summer Holiday Fun x

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


  1. Looks like you two are having such a great time :) .... Really lovely to see

  2. sounds like you are having a ball and i'm really impressed with those cakes :)

  3. Looks like you have had a lot of fun! I love the needle felting..I have a girl here who would love a go at that too

  4. Love the cupcakes....would like a class like that myself.
    My DD has a named coke bottle....a friend of hers saw it in Tesco and bought it for her.

  5. Love the cupcakes - enjoy the rest of the summer holidays. Looking forward to seeing what you both get upto next.
