  • A Visit To Chester Zoo

    A Visit To Chester Zoo

    Today we had a well overdue trip to the zoo. We haven’t been to Chester Zoo in almost 10yrs, a few things have remained the same, but lots have changed. Red Panda’s was high on Ryan’s list to see, but I think we got to see almost everything there, and I’m not surprised as our […]

  • A Walk Around Ingleton Waterfalls Trail

    A Walk Around Ingleton Waterfalls Trail

    An early start this morning to get up to Ingleton Waterfalls before the rush of walkers. We haven’t been here in a very long time. So glad it had cooled down from last week, because I think it would have beaten us before we would have gotten all the way around. As there are still […]

  • A Walk Around Hornby Castle

    A Walk Around Hornby Castle

    As it was Fathers Day today, thought we would have a nice walk around Hornby Castle this morning. Never been there before, and as they only open the gardens to the public twice a year it was worth a couple of hours.

    Having a go at Spin Art

    My youngest has been watching a few YouTube art videos lately and wanted to have a go at Spin Art. Was fun to do, just had to make an adapter for my drill and a small paint tent to catch the spinning off paint, and away we went….

    Another week with our elf, and as always he’s been busy. A few presents like new slippers and a slush maker. He’s also been getting up to mischief with paint wrapping up Ryans packed lunch and playing cards late into the night for gold coins……

    Guess Who’s Back!?

    Yes Eddie the Elf is back for another Christmas at the Dixon’s.. His door appeared a few days before the end of November. Now I know we have been getting ready for Christmas for about a month now here, but can you blame anyone for wanting something to focus on with the year we have […]

  • Week 11 – End Of Times.

    Week 11 – End Of Times.

    As week 11 passes by, I get the feeling that the whole planet is on a imploding trajectory. What was bad enough having to try and quarantine the whole population for what we thought might be a few weeks, and what seemed like 30% didn’t think it included them, and how we are going to […]

    Week 10 – Getting Out And About..
