Our weekend in pictures, a little diary of what we get up to at the weekends together.

Saturday 18th March 2017 

We’ve had a lovely weekend, it was my Dad’s 70th Birthday a couple of weeks back so we wanted to get together with my family and celebrate together. I was asked by Sykes Cottages to work with them on a review property, (FULL REVIEW POST) so I thought what a perfect time to celebrate with my Dad and have a weekend away with them. We found 2 stunning properties that fitted my family, my parents and my Sisters family.

We headed off to Upwey near Weymouth on Friday, and we were not disappointed when we arrived! I will do a full review, and video of the property, but for now here is a couple.

They had popped in a disco light bulb and added balloons around too, what a great touch.

Upwey is a lovely little village, close enough to everything but away from everything that you feel very relaxed. We had a walk around the village, exploring what was about.

Played with their Cousins in the garden.

Hubby was amazing and cooked for 15 people! My cousin arrived with her family to celebrate with us for the day, it was so nice for my Dad to have everyone around him.

Sunday 19th March 2017

We headed out to Maiden Castle for a VERY windy walk together. Maiden Castle is one of the largest and most complex Iron Age hillforts in Europe – the size of 50 football pitches!!

So lovely seeing the cousins chatting away together, perfect spot to sit and have a chat don’t you.

Then we drove down to Weymouth beach, a lovely big sandy beach for the kids to run around on. Gus was so pleased chase his ball, and get a sandy nose!

Of course you can’t go to the beach without an ice cream……

and bumper cars!!

If you don’t already follow me on Instagram I also post a daily picture, and at the end of the year I put them together into a Photobook.

    Wow looks like such a lovely weekend. We love going on dodgems. Such a fun ride x

    • I love Dorset, so many lovely places around. Weymouth was a proper seaside town! We loved the sandy beach

  3. Wow, wow, and wow again. Totally our kind of weekend away. I can’t wait to see more (very slightly a little bit green too, but in a nice way!!). Can’t believe Kev cooked for soooo many people, I struggle for five! Well done him. Sounds like you Dad had an amazing birthday with everyone around him 🙂

    • Hopefully spring will arrive soon! Kev did fab cooking for everyone, he’s great at it though. I would struggle so badly!!

  4. Oh wow the place looks stunning. I love the photo of all your family around the table. You are so lucky to have such a close family. It looks like you really did have an amazing time. I look so forward to seeing your full review. It is always so nice to go away with family xx
