i am trying to save money and always end up shopping at the weekends, i was just wondering what other people were up to.

Well, ours did include shopping as we went to the local dive shop on Saturday for masks, snorkles & fins for the dds. But afterwards we stopped off in the local park for a game of cricket.
On Sunday we chilled at home until the afternoon when we went to a toga party, complete with Roman Games. Great fun! It was in aid of breast cancer charity so doubly good.

Did feel idiots walking home in our gear afterwards though

Oh, rating about 8/10 overall weekend.

we went to a farm - DS is 14 months and he loved it!
there was also a play area with slides and diggers which he went on (ably assisted by DH)
he also went in the ball pool - was slightly alarmed by it - but a good day overall

|link{http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/volunteering/w-generalopportunities-basecamp_details.htm? basecampID=30\ we stayed here} for one night with loads of friends with kids. Big dorm for kids, dorm with bunk beds for the mums and big sofas for dads.

BBQ, played cricket, kids to bed then ate and drank at big table. Basic but a laugh and only 10 mins from our house!!

Second year we have done it, will become an annual event I think.

We went on the Haverthwaite steam railway to Lakeside and then on the boat up Lake Windermere to Bowness, where we saw the red arrows air display. It was mad busy, glorious weather and DD loved it.

On sSaturday we spent the day at my parents. They were babysitting my neice (3) and nephew (4 weeks) so my two enjoyed themselves.

On Sunday we went to a Thomas day at the local steam railway. It was very good, they had a fantastic time. Ds is rather train obsessed, as you might deduce from my username.

We had a round of golf (par 3 course, so q. easy) on Sunday. Had lunch in the clubhouse half way round.

It was good fun.
