Unplanned Family Evening


I took the girls to school as normal in the morning yesterday. Picked Elliw up 11 and picked Mia up at 3. We came home by 3.30pm and the girls played in the back garden for a bit until Mia came back in because apparently there were too many bugs and flies outside for her to play outside. I helped Mia with her homework, whilst Elliw was playing with the iPad for a bit.


I've noticed the TV is hardly ever switched on in the day anymore. They are either playing with eachother, drawing or we are out. I like it like that. I don't like the TV on all day. After Mia finished her homework she decided she wanted to play pretend school. So that is what she did. I decided it was the perfect chance to get some housework done. I also decided since they were in a really good mood, I got them to help me clean and tidy the front room {which is their play-room at the moment}. They actually had fun, we all did! After they finished helping me, Elliw went back on the iPad, Mia went back to playing school and I went to the room under the stairs to get the hoover out. I hate getting the hoover out but it was the perfect opportunity to hoover the whole house. So that is what I did.




About 5 minutes into me hoovering, Daddy came home. He told us we were all going out for food. So I hurried up and hoovered the living room, front room, hall way, stairs, the landing, bathroom and bedrooms! Then I had a little rest because I was so damn hot and sweaty {lovely...not!}. After I cooled down, we all got ready and off out we went.

We decided to go to Table Table for food. Which is on the docks in a town near us. The food was lovely. We even got a pudding - which was delicious. The girls were well behaved. They didn't moan or cry once whilst we were there. Which of course, made our evening even better. Whilst Daddy went to pay me and the girls decided to go and have a small walk on the docks and look at the boats. There was plenty of room for the girls to run around and have fun too. Daddy joined us after he paid.


Our small walk to see the boats leaded to a walk all the way around to the other side of the docks and then lead to a nice long walk back to the car. It was lovely. We stood by the wall and just looked at the sunset. The girls were still well behaved. They enjoyed themselves so much.

Once we reached the car, the girls wanted to play the iPad and draw. So that's what they did. We went for a ride out in the car, so we took the long way back home. Which was also a nice change, again. We arrived home just after 8.20pm. The girls went to bed no problem, after their story. They went to sleep pretty quickly too! Then me and Daddy had a quiet night in catching up on soaps and Big Brother!

I think unplanned family evenings and days out are always the best. Daddy works every day of the week and last week he worked all weekend too, so it was nice to spend time all together for a change.

And guess what?.... We took a family selfie too!

  9. Aw a lovely post and some gorgeous photos. My two hardly watch tv either as they're always outside playing at this time of year. I can remember playing schools and offices and all sorts with my older sisters as a child, very good memories.

  24. Now I realise the photos of the docks are probably the ones you linked up to #CheckOutThatView but how cute is that family selfie?! Gorgeous! Love that you are turning the tv off more too. I'm trying to do the same.

    Sorry it's taken me so long to comment. I'm just getting back on track after a busy few weeks! Thanks for linking up to #CheckOutThatView
