I say forgot, I kinda knew it was coming but they’ve only just gone back after the 37 zillion bank holidays and in my head Lil H had a week back after Center Parcs before breaking up.  I was wrong.   I turned my diary page over and there it was staring me in the face the ever so organised sticker saying “half term” – Oh to the eM to the Gee!  Clearly organised enough to put the terms in back but not organised enough to  read the diary!

Plans, I have none and I need some.  Plans and mates thats what I need.  Everyone seems to have gone away where as we’ve just come back.  Hoping to get a few playdates and blog/Tweetups Amy  I am looking at you sister!  Anyone else?  I am open to offers!

A quick run through my inbox and I have a list of possible day trips, events, activities and I can breathe again.  I thought I would share my list in case it helped anyone else needing some inspiration or maybe someone lovely reader will leave me a comment with your suggestions and favourite things to do at half term seeing as the L O N G Summer Holidays are just a matter of weeks away now *gulp*

At home & wet weather activities:
Baking Dr Oetker sent us some fabulous goodies cupcakes & brownies etc
Crafting – Maggy over at Red Ted Art is where I get all my craft inspirations
Sofa soft play – this involves removing all sofa cushions & turning a blind eye 😉
Movie afternoon –  nothing I fancy at cinema so Tangled on DVD may be purchased!
