#BWphotoproject – Escalators

  

These are the escalators in Birmingham New Street station. And for some reason on my way home from BlogCamp I thought the would look amazing in Black and White. So I snapped this picture when I got to bottom and I must agree I like it. 

What do you think?

#Project365 – week 14Β 

Day 89 

On Sunday we finally saw the sung or the first time in ages. So we put on our wellies and went for play at the park p, bumping into some friends on the way. The kids had great fun.

Day 90  

 We got invited back to Brewers Fayre at Old Brickworks. So I invited my mum along. Sadly the boys were still at school and hadn’t broke up yet. It was just Me, Grandma, E and Baby. As you can tell we had fun πŸ™‚ 

Day 91 

The hubby lovely treated me to a rather big breakfast in bed! It wasn’t even my birthday or Mother’s Day. It was just because he loves me.

Day 92 

The hubby was sulking a little because he tired to April fools me but I didn’t fall for it. What can I say I’m use to him being a fool so I wasn’t going to fall for it.  

Day 93 

It was another beautiful day and I spotted some daisies growing in the field next to the park. I hade to get a snap of them because I love daisies ❀️. They always make me think of my childhood and long summer days sitting in the garden making daisy chains. 

Day 94 

 I decided to get in the Easter mood for my #snaphappybritmums photo. The prompt was “hat”. So I thought a selfie wearing Baby’s rabbit hat would be prefect. 

Day 95 

 Another selfie I know but it’s not often me and the hubby manage to get a snap together. And I have to say I really love this picture. 

So there’s my week in pictures. 

I hope you will let me know what you think in the comments.

February Half Term

For most of us the last week has been half term.

While I do love normally love school holiday, I completely despise them over winter. The weather is crap, the kids don’t want to play out cause it’s cold and quite frankly I can’t blame them. I know most winter days I would much rather curl up in my pj’s in the warm.

For us our half term has been spent going on days out or playing at home in tents and doing arts and crafts when the weather was bad.

IMG_1786
You see instead of telling you about our half term in 1 post, I planned to tell you about all the stuff we got up over multiple posts. I was going to tell you about the day I met up with my sister and we took the large brood of kids to the Media Museum in Bradford. It was a fun day but because they had a Shaun the Sheep exhibit on the place was completely packed and we didn’t really get chance to enjoy it or do everything they had to going on. It was completely manic and with 2 pram and 9 kids you can imagine how much fun was to be had. We did manage some but I wasn’t able to get many photos. The kids loved it though, especially E.

By the time Saturday had rolled around I realised the kids hadn’t really played out. Of course we had been out and about to museums, play areas etc but they hadn’t gone outside to play except for a bout 5 minutes, when they ran through water fountain in
City Park on the way home from the Media Museum.

Because of this I was really happy when one of my mummy friends messaged to ask if I wanted to join her and kids for a walk to park and then down to local farms to see the animals.

IMG_1779

The kids loved the park and I enjoyed watching them all play nicely. T really impressed me by being so grown up and helping the younger ones on the slide or pushing them on swings. It was amazing to see how grown up he was becoming.

We only stayed in the park for a short time because we wanted to go see the animals, plus I wanted to go an take some photos of the wild flowers and views for my #BWphotoproject and #MySundayPhoto. There really are some beautiful sights to see where I live and I got some great shots.

IMG_1781

IMG_1783 although I wish I could have found and done more. But when you have kids running round that are wanting to explore, sometime you have to miss the taking picture to gain memories instead.

We carried on down the dirt road marching in a line, as the boys pretended to be soldiers and exploring their surroundings. We spent ages looking at the sheep and horses.

IMG_8112

IMG_8115
E was super excited saying “Just like Shaun the Sheep The Movie”. It’s funny how excited she gets about the movie, as we haven’t actually seen the film. I guess it going to have to go on the “must see list”.

After some fun and giggles we carried on down the path until we reached the level train crossing.
It’s one of my favourite places to walk with the kids because I get to talk to them about all sorts of things. Telling them about my adventures at the same spot as a child and explaining why you only cross when the light on green. Why you should always close the gates and why you should never play on the tracks.

Every time I take the kids to the crossing. We always stop and wait to see a train pass by.

IMG_8114
Sometimes we would be stood there for quite a while just waiting and talking. But that doesn’t matter because as soon as the crossing light turns red and starts making a beeping sound to warn the a train is imminent. You can see the excitement that spreads across the kids faces as they giddily clamber up the gate and the furiously waving at the approaching train.
It’s like a modern day image from The Railway Children.

And this trip was no exception and the smiles lite up their little faces when the train eventually came along and sounded it’s horn as and the driver and some of the passengers waved back.

After wards we turned back and walked back towards the park. So the kids could enjoy some more time playing in the park.

It was a great afternoon that was filled with lots of fun, exploring and excitement. It was amazing adventure that has left me with some fond memories to keep me going, until we head out on our next expedition.

How did you spend you half term?

#Project365 – Week 1

I saw a lot of post about project 365 over last 9 months and I was really gutted that I wasn’t able to join in as I started blogging in March 2014. I really didn’t feel right starting it when others had the project well underway. So I waiting patiently and looked through everyone’s else’s posts and pictures.
Then when New Years came around I was thrilled that the project would be starting again and I could start with everyone else.

So here we go. These are my pictures from 1st – 4th January.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9ee/65683610/files/2015/01/img_4870.jpg
Day 1 – This picture was of my New Years Day nibbles once I got all kids to bed and was finally able to Breathe. It’s was a very difficult day.

Day 2 – Saying goodbye to the Christmas decorations for another year. They seemed pleased to be escaping the chaos.

Day 3 – The running joke between my hubby and myself is that I’m trying to ‘bump him off’ but this was a giggle to us because he said shame it’s and electric oven. He did do a good job cleaning it though.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9ee/65683610/files/2015/01/img_4985.jpg
