That’s the book stuff up dated.
Now to the fun part sharing our adventures and trips through August and September .
While making the trips to visit my Mum over the last couple of months either at the hospital, her home , the care home and the rehabilitation centre my dad and i have had plenty of time in the car with shared driving duties splitting journey’s at the half way point having something to eat and drink.
Going there the journey’s have been pretty straight forward planning trips to fit in with the times of visiting hours we have been able to get there at the exact time the doors are open for visits. coming home the has seen some delays and longer journey’s road works or stuck behind accidents being the main cause of longer journey’s only once we took the wrong way and ended up going over Salisbury plain great views though with signs to watch out for tanks. That was the day we visited mum at home and the day she fell and broke her other leg.not long after we left we found out at the half way point and were going to turn the car straight round and go back but her partner was with her and got the ambulance and went to hospital with her keeping us informed. Mum is in the rehabilitation unit still but they informed her yesterday that they will be releasing her next Saturday we have a week to get her a doctor sorted out down here and set up everything she needs, she can’t go home to her’s just yet as her partner is self employed so has to work and he also cares for his mum who has had multiple falls the last time she fell they had to wait 17 hours for an ambulance. My mum is only just about a shuffling few step and still cant lift that second leg up just yet. Still about a month away from being more mobile we all made the decision together for her to come here for a little while to help with recovery. I am looking forward to her being here and keeping her company being her motivation to get her home and back to her Marty.
Really though i want her to think of it as a mini break like when she came for visits before, she should be here to celebrate Hayley’s birthday with us and maybe even meet our Josh’s girl Danni that’s another person i am looking forward to welcoming to the family and meeting for the first time our family is growing bigger again my great nephew Just got Engaged my niece and her little Toula and hubby.
Even Little Toms dogs have had to little puppiesthats for another blog though.
We are a pretty tight knit kind of family we love to celebrate life together but also we all rally round and help each other if one of us needs it. we may even get on weach other nerves sometimes but thats so life for all families though.
Lets liven this blog up with some of the beautiful views we captured while on our travels.
some many different styles of homes the sky is always different each area you pass through takes you back to different time pireods in the designs of the buildings churches shops and even pubs surprising how each village or town has pubs with the Same Name not that we got to sample themthough just a fleeting glymps as we drove by.
Day Trip To London With Hayley and Jake
We first caught the train taking Hayley on the under ground to the london history museum have visited with Jake before when he was little but the first time Hayley has been to the history museum though. and Jake is older now so could really appriciate it when he was younger he couldn’t stay stiil long enough to enjoy it.
Hayley wasn’t to sure on the under ground but coped well with it she definatley didn’t like the large tall escalators she used to be to scared to travel on them before, i am always giving her postive encouargement to try new things that are not part of her routine.
The museums are free to enter but they have a donation part at the entrance with a hope of getting about 5 pound in donation thats pretty good value for money.
You can probally guess I love the buildings as much as the history and content they carry inside. I am kind of on a mission to show people who read my blog what MY homeland and country have to offer, And not all the news that has been shared over the last few years of brexit cost of living and cuts to services and of course our royal news thats important topics. You can always get caught up in the negatives of society and poltics that you forget to love and appreciate and be thankfull for the beautiful timeless things your country has to offer.
Do you have a favorite?
Dinosaur Jakes was always the Tricerotops, PLus Jake absaloutly loves Godzela althe movies he has watched all of them but prefers the older movie.
Frogs are our venus favorite she has a large collection of ornimenatle Frogs been collecting since 2016 her collection started off with them little packets of rubber collectable frogs I used to get them when she had bad anxiety so they were kind of squishy a sensory based collection which turned into a bigger one.
Do you know of any other animal or creature in your country we may not know of here in England ?leave a comment if you do then I can research it and show Hayley Jake and NIki.
Jake also had a fasinations with the Scottish Nessy, The Lockness Monster.
My favorite was the Wooly mammouth reminds me of Many from ice age only wants underneath all that fur.
Next we walked through Green Park to Buckingham Palace funny how things could of changed our trip to london had it happened the week the Queen passed away. Must have been shocking for people visiting the palace that day to here the news.
The Royal albert museum one i have only walked passed and briefly sat outside it’s on my to do list to visit next time I am in london.
we had a look at Harrods a spot of lunch at Nando’s and some souvener shops
Jake had the very spicy Chicken something new to add to his growing list of ffods he can eat now and hayley tried the spicy bean burger was a tad hot for her butshe still ate it. we left after as hayley’s leg was really begining to hurt she cant walk long distances without taking breaks but she coped so well with all these different things, in fact i think it makes her want to try new places all the time now.
Smith and Western restaurant with Hayley Venus and Jake
Smith and Western was a fantastic atmosphere the music the bubbly staff, the food was amazing now although i am sharing quite a few trips out in this blog they were really weeks apart and was part of the summer holiday experience with the kids and Hayley.
Hayley and me had checked it out a few weeks before when we went for a walk round the lakes and she decided it was the next place to choose. the lakes were beautiful on that day and we got some photo’s of the beautiful wild nature
