The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of short breaks, nights away from the kids and a weekend blog conference for me. In between there’s been work and the usual daily routines to keep us busy. It’s been brilliant, inspiring and exhausting.
We were overdue some quality family time at home and last week we got it. Here’s what a ‘normal’ weekend in Devon looks like for us.
I work part-time so the weekend starts on Thursday for the Tin Box girls and I. The weather was looking good so we went to the beach for a picnic.
We visited North Sands in Salcombe as Tin Box Tot wanted to make sandcastles. The tide was right up but there was a thin strip of dry land for us to set up our picnic blanket and get out the buckets and spades.
On Saturday we took the girls swimming in Torquay – something that is becoming a regular request. On our way home we had a walk at Berry Head in Brixham. There’s some great views and a lot of space to run around as well as a child and dog-friendly cafe – The Guardhouse.
With more fine weather forecast on Sunday we decided to make the most of it with a trip to our local farm. The Tin Box Grandparents had taken the girls to Totnes Rare Breeds Farm while we were away in Jersey a few weekends before.
Tin Box Tot loved revisiting the sheep, owls, guinea pigs and goats.
We had a extremely enjoyable weekend exploring our local area and being together as a family. Luckily it’s not too long before we get some more quality time as a fivesome as we have a week’s holiday coming up. Bring on the adventures!
