Well after four walling it last week, we pulled out all the stops on Friday and toddled off to the coast to have some fresh air. Here is my favourite bit of coastline, discovered last year - Flamborough Head!
It is a tiny beach but lovely, we set off late but didn't care it was about having a jaunt out and enjoying the surroundings. These two thoroughly enjoyed 'skimming' stones - I call it 'skimming' in quotes because if you'd seen the size and shapes of a lot of them the one thing you wouldn't be able to do was skim them - they had fun nonetheless.
Now when you need to write your name on a giant rock - apparently you need a giant piece of chalk! This will be appearing on a scrapbook layout shortly for obvious reasons!
Hubby got this one really low down to the ground - what a fab view!
We then headed into Bridlington and got a fab sunset
And then got to see some of the other less favourable items in the vicinity! All sorts of wrong!
Slot machines - it's the I won bit that had us rolling, they won then they fed it back into the machine!
Saturday saw a jaunt to Eyam - despite only being an hour away I've never actually been. Unfortunately, we picked a really really cold day, which means we will probably have to return to appreciate it fully in the summer, however, we did manage to go to Eyam Hall run by the National Trust.
First sign of spring (although it was just after a snow shower so not sure how necessary snowdrops really were).
Outside the Elizabethan Hall and look at those blue skies!
We saw lots of things inside the house - this one tickled me most!
We even had a stroll around the garden - family selfie!
Afterwards we ventured around the few craft shops and stopped at the coffee shop for a cuppa. Mischief 1 and 2 were on top form as always!
Then the journey back - we were racing the weather - literally - the views over the Derbyshire and Yorkshire landscape was beautiful!
We even got to see left overs from the Tour De Yorkshire last year
Saturday night saw another ice hockey match, which we unfortunately lost (boo hiss) but then managed a win on the return leg in Nottingham this week and got through to the final - phew! Although unfortunately, we didn't get to see the second leg of the match!
Other positives include a fabulous parents evening on thursday night, chatting away to the teachers - said 14 year old verged on having a fan club! Most funny!
Prompt delivery of some photos I'd ordered early in the week.
Work being understanding when I was poorly, I had to have a couple of days off when the lurgy struck, but I'm on the mend now.
I hope you've had a fabulous week and have lots of positives and grateful moments to note. If you fancy joining in pop yourself a post together, pop back link up and we will come and visit.
