Oh the joys of a english bank holiday weekend - we always hope the sun will shine but the reality is often more soggy.
Nevermind, its a 3 day break and probably the last proper weekend we'll spend as a family until that event @ the end of the year that starts with 'C'. Obviously we'll see each other but with brassbands, childrens hobbies and of course the start of GCSE coursework we might not get the full 48 hours together!!
Yesterday we headed for a family day out c/o the few remaining days out vouchers we have collected c/o MrTesco. Not a great choice of places nearby for us but we decided that we'd head to Bressingham Steam Museum and Gardens having not been there for many years. Add to that mix the promise of an exhibition about one of our favourite classic sit-coms - Dads Army - and we thought there would be something for everyone;
Steam powered Gallopers
Steam trains a-plenty;
The gardens were a riot of colour and Bressingham Hall is gorgeous - I dropped hints to MrVV about staying there sometime in the future ;)
There were load of dragon/damselflies flying about - I love these and have tried so many times to take photos. Normally I fail - they won't land or I have the camera on the wrong setting. Yesterday (for me) success;
We had a great day out - even the bedroom hobbits enjoyed themselves more than they thought they would. There were some 1950's dodgems cars there and we decided to split into 2 groups for a ride on those. I went with big-son - I believe I might have screamed as we headed around the rink @ flat out speed - his favourite trick was to make it look like we were going to hit the wall / another car head-on BUT he'd swerve at the last moment - little git!!
BTW can you tell I'm still having fun with Picnik??
Thank you for the comments on this blogs new look - the header is just temporary until I can decide which 3 pictures from my vast collection I like the best!!
Still open for suggestions for blogshop name - more work in progress on that at the moment too.
See you later in the week.
