Matlock Bath

We went to Matlock this morning and had a great time even though the weather couldn't decide what it was doing. It was mostly dry with just a couple of light showers. We took Olivia and Louise (Katy's children) with us which Ethan loved. We all had a lovely morning walking around Matlock Bath and playing on the park. The children loved the swings and once we'd wiped the rain off the slides they went on them too. We had chips, sausage and fishcake for dinner and found a little chip shop we could sit down and eat in.

We were going to go to the Heights of Abraham but didn't have the time plus with the weather being so variable we thought it would be nicer to do when the sun is shining! So really looking forward to doing that in the summer and so is Ethan. There is so much to do up there to, adventure play area, caves, walks and there are a few places to eat too.

This afternoon we have done the food shopping and I got a pair of crop trousers for work, think I am now all sorted for work clothes for the summer. When we got back we planted the strawberry plants and rhubarb plant we bought yesterday and also moved the rhubarb plant that was already in the garden. I'm hoping that the rhubarb we moved will be ok and continue to grow - fingers crossed.

Whilst John and Ethan finished off in the garden I completed two layouts that needed the journaling adding. It's another two layouts completed and ready to go in Ethan's albums when the new page protectors arrive as I have ran out!
