Monday we went for a new walk , still local but somewhere I've never been before . No photo's I'm afraid as my camera broke while we were out .The lens got jammed and I was quoted anywhere between £50 and £80 for a repair . So I've got a new camera on the way and fingers crossed it will be here tomorrow.
Tuesday was a trip into town to see a new exhibition at the new museum . It was all about fairy's so I didn't tell the boys where we were going I just sprang it on them and they thoroughly enjoyed it and want to go back . So when we do I'll show you. We also ended up going to Build-a- Bear ( thanks Tess ) and spending the last of the birthday money on two bears which are now called ' Sausages' and 'Jelly Baby Army Soldier Bear' !! My children really do have a vivid imagination as far as names go .
Wednesday and Thursday are a bit of a blur, the weather was very sticky during the day and drizzly and with Hub on late shift all week I don't think we did much . A quick trip to the allotment and the supermarket if I remember rightly but that's about it.
Friday we went to the Hancock Museum in Newcastle. Once again it was a first for us and when you consider it was free entry it was really good with lots of different exhibits including dinosaurs. the living planet . Egypt and a few others. Hub very kindly loaned me his camera for the trip so I did take a couple of pictures.
Notice the blue skies ... it was a gorgeous day .
The reason I mentioned the blue skies was because yesterday was the exact opposite , big fat torrential day all day with just a bit of thunder and lightning thrown in for good measure,
So this led to a jama day with lots of Wii playing and Knex building until cabin fever set in and the fighting began. It always ends in tears .
Today has been a little bit better with a walk to the park in the drizzle followed by a roast chicken and crusty bread lunch . Tomorrow the boys are off to their Grans so it will be a day of peace for me -- yeahh and fingers crossed the sun gets out next week too .
Hope you all have a lovely week.
