Family holidays

We've been so busy since my last post, I feel as if I've barely been home.
We left home the day after my last post on 9th April and have been holidaying with our children almost ever since.

We went to Cardiff to visit our son and his wife on the Saturday morning and had a lovely chilled out weekend. We went to a new gallery that we hadn't been to before and as you can see I started my chilling out straight away.

As we were leaving I noticed these amazing figures on the next door building which happened to be a Chinese Christian church.

After having a lovely lunch, followed up by some retail therapy, which is always enjoyable in Cardiff, we took a stroll back through the park where everyone was enjoying the Spring sunshine at last.

In the evening we all went to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D, which was brilliant and of course I had to get the pic of us all wearing the Michael Caine glasses.

On Sunday morning it was time to pay our usual visit to Crafts in the Bay where I had to buy my copy of Embroidery and some hand dyed silks.

But not before a delicious coffee and cake of course.

So a belated thanks to our lovely hosts as usual and we're already looking forward to them coming to visit us in July.

After leaving Cardiff we went to Taunton to start a weeks camping/motorhoming with DD2 and her children, next post.

Proud Mum and Dad

The weekend before last our DD2 made us very proud when, following in her dad's footsteps, she ran her first 10k race in out local FC woodlands.
And this was her post on Facebook a few hours later
"Race results online! I came in at 53.02 - 27th out of 248 women who finished the 10K. Ecstatic with that for my first run :)))))"

We couldn't be more proud of her as this is the culmination of a long haul since January 2009 to loose weight and get herself fit. She has now lost over 7 stone and is achieving amazing results in her weight lifting routines, and general fitness regime.

What an achievement, well done Hannah.

Needless to say the waiting got a bit boring for the younger members of the family who came to give Mum some support.

Thought you might like to see how I spend my weekends, supporting my DH, well sometimes!

But it was worth it, he had 3 like this one.
