I love it when I can go shopping in the holidays, take the children with me and give them something fun and engaging to do whilst we’re out too – so it’s not just a boring shopping trip for them, being dragged from shop to shop.
Somewhere we have wanted to visit for ages is the Rural Life Living Museum in Farnham, Surrey so when Britains Farm Toys invited us along to spend the day at the museum to enjoy the Britains trail they’ve set up there, we couldn’t wait to visit!
We last went to Blenheim Palace six years ago, when Little Man wasn’t quite two and we were in the days of pushchairs and changing bags. I couldn’t wait to see what Blenheim Palace was like with LP and Little Man being so much older.
On the way to our holiday in Shropshire we stopped at Croome National Trust to break up our journey, stretch our legs and explore somewhere new. It’s somewhere I’ve never heard of before but I’m so glad we chose to stop off there.
