What a fantastic 2 weeks it's been too. I've loved every minute of it! The first 3 days it was just me and the kids so we went to the local park, play areas and to the horses. The horses are around 10 minute drive away at the moment. Then my hubby joined us and we had a trip to Cadbury's World in Birmingham and Chester Zoo. We stayed over a night at both places, with a night or 2 at home in between to break it up. The days spent at home saw us Geocaching which is our new found favourite family hobby (meaning the dog comes too) along with trips to the park and a day trip to Whitby (crabbing) which was SO much fun.

On one of our many walks out we went brambling (picking wild blackberries if the word isn't familiar) and came home with quite a bounty considering many of them aren't ripe yet. I immediately set to work on the "must make" apple and bramble crumble which was divine. Next on the list is apple and bramble cake/loaf, then some jams to see us through the winter to go with our porridge, yum.
