Blown Away at Martin Mere

Meg's spent the Friday night/Saturday at her BFFs -
While she was away Al had suggested a trip to Blue Planet Aquarium,
but the morning was lovely so we changed plans at the last minute
and headed off to Martin Mere instead.
The storm arrived as we passed through Ormskirk-
leading to an extremely blowy afternoon in the hides-
Al played with lenses - Ben played on his DS -
And I enjoyed the piece and quiet!

Private viewing

Megs GCSE textiles work - a rather fabulous altered book -
 on display at the Brindley Arts Centre

'Tis in my memory locked,
And you yourself shall keep the key of it.

So far in January....

We enjoyed the fab live orchestra screening of the  "Pirates of the Carribean" at the Phil
{plus Ben splurged his Christmas money on Yu-gi-oh cards)
And saw a rather brilliant Robin Hood a the Bolton Octagon

Everyone headed back to school/nursery/work
I've had 18 new starters!
We've had weekend walks at Victoria Park and and afternoon at Gauntlet Bird of Prey

The boys have had haircuts

And we've had lunch at Frankie and Benny's
{books optional}

New Years Day in Leicester

Up really early on the first day of the year - a one day trip to Leicester -
a lovely time with a seldom seen cousin.
