Fun at the Gincase
On Thursday we went to the Gincase, which is a farm park in Cumbria. Izzy and her friend Charlie were running around hand in hand, feeding the animals while Clara tried to keep up. They groomed a pony and bottle fed a goat, and had tons of fun on the soft play. Clara went down a slide (I think for the first time) and she was laughing her head off. I think Izzy’s highlight had to be going on the zip wire, which I thought was pretty high for a 4 year old!
This was our first free weekend after about 6 weeks of hen and stag dos, weddings, weekends away and birthday celebrations. So Hubby and I took it in turns to have lie ins, did some shopping, gardening and housework and generally enjoyed just having some free time after what has felt like a manic couple of months. I even got time to go for an impromptu coffee with my friend, although most of the time I was running about trying to stop the kids wandering off. Not exactly a relaxing catch up! Saturday night was curry night, and we enjoyed yet another fab curry from The Spicery. I know I’ve probably raved about them on here before, but my Hubby is always going on about how the curry subscription I bought him last year is the best birthday present ever. Basically each month you receive the spices and recipe to create a curry and side dishes for 4 people. You still need to buy the fresh ingredients, but it’s a great way to try some different and really tasty curries. And considering I was strictly a tikka massala girl before, and I’m quite fussy about food, I really enjoy them.
