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

Saturday 23rd September 2017

Up bright and early for a walk down the countrypark, stretch the dogs legs and some fresh air for everyone. 

The girls were very happy to have some funky new wellies, they had to find the biggest puddle they could find to splash in……….

Dog agility for Tyler, this one was tricky today, but great for Tyler and Gus to be challenged a little bit! 

The girls found a park to play in whilst waiting! 

What a beautiful day it turned out to be, with the washing blowing on the line, I happily enjoyed a peaceful 5 minutes in the garden

Saturday night easy dinner on the sofa with these lot! 

Nice to have Strictly Come Dancing back on the TV! 

Sunday 24th September

After the normal routine of swimming lessons, we picked somewhere new to explore. Blackwater Arboretum in The New Forest. 

However as soon as we got out the car it poured with rain!! No coats, but a handy massive umbrella in the boot. It didn’t last too long, and Sofia shouted she loves walking in the rain anyway!

They called this route a sensory route, it has various trees dotted around the route and each one felt different to touch. Nice to get up close to some huge trees, and surprised us by the textures of them. 

I love Autumn, I love the colours of the leaves, and watching the trees changing colour. 

Concentration of a little girl decorating her branch!!

No winter walk is complete without a hot chocolate stop!

Back home for a yummy roast dinner, and get ready for school

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.



  1. Its nice that you managed to get 10 minutes in your garden after all of the effort you have put into it this year. The new forest is stunning isn’t it? Loving pizza in front of the telly on Saturday night.

  7. It was such lovely weather over the weekend perfect for all the Autumnal exploring you did – loving the wellies perfect for splashing in muddy puddles!
