March has been a kinder month to my family, we’ve had a lot less illness and a lot more adventures. The weather hasn’t been kind though. We’ve had a lot of snow. The month started with “the beast from the east”. Weather so bad F’s school closed for 2 days and my mum (who stays with us 2 nights in the week to look after the girls whilst I’m in work) got stuck at ours for the week as the snow was so bad in Yorkshire. We did get out in the snow building snowmen and walking in our local woods.
The following weekend we had two days out in one weekend. On the Saturday my sister-in-law and nephew visited and we went for a walk in the nearby hills. Sunday was mother’s day and snow free so we visited one of my favourite local National Trust sites (Hare hill) that close for the winter. They have 12 wooden Hares hidden around the small woods and over the winter they have moved a lot of them around. My girls had lots of fun finding them. Our toddler adored them (she was too young last year). As the spring is approaching it’s nice to see her enjoying being outside more and also watching the two girls interact more. E obviously spends a lot of the time in her pushchair but as she is getting older and wanting to walk more it’s nice to see them interacting more on days out.
We had a lovely trip to Trentham Monkey Forest another weekend and we finished the month off with a trip to Anglesey for the bank holiday weekend. Good Friday was a beautiful day, the most spring like we have had. We visited another beautiful National Trust (Plas Newydd) for the Easter egg hunt. I’m hoping now it’s April spring will truly arrive, we drove home on Monday through areas of snow!
