We’re still on our school and work holidays and I have to keep reminding myself we only have 3 days left. Argggh. It’s been a really lovely two weeks of hibernating, immense de-cluttering (how do we have so much crap just in one year??) and the odd trip out to eat, get some fresh air and to generally mingle with other humans. I’ve realised I don’t know how to just sit and chill out. I have to be doing something or need something to look forward to. I may have to relearn how to relax this year and unwind a bit. I think maybe running after two kids and a job can do that to you. Having said that, I can’t honestly remember properly much of what we’ve done over the last fortnight as we couldn’t even be bothered with the sales. I did a lot online for the boys and we were done.
What I do remember is that we went to the Manchester winter wonderland one day just after Christmas. It was SO nice and quiet as I think most people were still finishing off turkey leftovers or hitting the sales. I’m not sure there’s that much to do if you’re an adult, but its amazing for kids that love funfair rides (as well as big kids that love funfair rides). We managed to have a lot of fun and just ran about giving Little Z company on all of them as he didn’t want to sit alone. These are some of our photos from the evening. It’s been a long long time since I’ve sat on so many fun fair rides but it was mostly fun. Well, besides the one you sit on the choo choo train and your child dings the bell non stop for about 3 minutes.
