Half Term Plans

Half term is getting closer and I need to make plans to amuse and entertain the boys.  I enjoy visiting new places and we were fortunate enough through my blog to have complimentary annual English Heritage passes late last year.  I think I need to hunt them out of the drawer, dust them off and start putting them to good use!

Although with us living in the sticks in Wales getting to most places involves a considerable drive.  The weather is also a bit dicey this time of year so it’s important to get adequate breakdown cover.  The AA have rescued us before when the car battery was flat and we had no means of getting home!  With children I think it’s even more important to have a quick rescue otherwise they start moaning they are hungry, thirsty or need the toilet…

I think we will be doing more geocaching over the holiday too; it’s the excitement of what could be hidden in the next box.  Plus that’s a free activity apart from petrol in the car and a picnic to keep our stamina up!  We seem to take the long route to find a cache but perhaps that’s because we are still learning.  Hopefully our eyes will get attuned to spotting cleverly hidden caches.

I was having a look at this article to see what attractions we have missed and if anything took my fancy.  I do have some firm favourites we return to every year like Legoland but many of the theme parks aren’t open yet.  

Black Country Living Museum sounds interesting and not too far from a blogging friend of mine.  Even better you pay once and return as much as you like for a whole year.  I certainly like value when it comes to days out.  If I could convince hubbie to drive as far as Cornwall I would love to go to the Eden Project.  Looking at the list we have only done 8 of the 50 attractions so we better get cracking…
