Hello, It's been a busy day today! We haven't really been out very much during the holidays so far, but we woke up this morning the sun was shining, sweet man was off work so we decided to head out for the day.As we are trying to save at the moment we didn't want to spend too much money, therefore we packed up a picnic and headed to our local nature reserve Hanningfield Reservoir.
It is a beautiful location that has a visitors centre which has lovely home made gifts for you to purchase and a tea bar where you can get drinks and snacks but the true beauty is all around you once you leave the visitors centre.
We took great pleasure in quietly sitting on the grass, watching the squirrels scurrying around oblivious to our presence.
We spent the whole day happily strolling through the woodland looking at the wildlife,sitting on benches talking whilst sweet boy three ran around finding things he could look at with the binoculars he got for his birthday.
We spent half an hour sitting in the viewing area watching the ducks swimming around the pond. It was so peaceful and relaxing I think we could have stayed all day in that one area!
At the end of the day we sadly but tiredly walked out spending our last few minutes in the Beatrix Potter garden.
We had the best day and all the fresh air made the three smallest sweet ones head off to bed early, which is where I am headed now Goodnight friends, sleep well.
