Our Weekend In Pictures

   
We spent last weekend in Cheltenham with (some) of my family. We booked a beautiful Under The Thatch property with the perfect garden for a non stop toddler (apart from the pond but luckily there were many a family member to keep an eye out). Wilf had a blast playing with my younger brother who are just ten years apart in age. For Wilf he got to play with a fun 'bigger boy' which he loves and for Madog as the youngest of five he got to play the part of the 'big brother' for once. The boys played so nicely everyday we were there and gave Tom and I a good chance to relax a little. 

The weather (in case any of you have been living in a hole) was stunning, at times perhaps a little too hot but hey I wouldn't be British if I didn't complain just a little right? 

On the last night we brought out a cheesecake we had bought earlier from the local shop. The kind that contains a ridiculous amount of sugar and artificial colouring. Like the sillies we are we gave Wilf a spoon as a special treat, four hours later (and 3 hours after his bedtime) he was still bouncing off the walls. Being particularly hilarious, blowing raspberries on our tummies, singing all his favourite songs, kisses and all the types of of behaviour that makes it impossible to be annoyed. Still, lesson learnt! 

Although it is only a 40minutes train ride from Bristol we had never visited Cheltenham before. With the heat and the need to just take it a bit easy we didn't really see much of the town but the parts we did see were very beautiful. We already said we would like to go back soon as see some more.

One thing I did think afterwards was that I should have asked for some tips on good places to visit whilst we were there, any of you lovely readers know Cheltenham? Where would you recommend?
