half-term away...

The Fat controller and usWe've had a few lovely days away - we took the car on a trip down the M3 (and back up again a few times) to the seaside, visit some of Beth's relatives and generally get away from it all.

We were really fortunate to enjoy A Day Out With Thomas at Eastleigh's Lakeside Railway, with Gordon, Henry and Thomas trains taking us on trips around the picturesque lake.

After a warm night sharing a hotel room in Winchester (poor Lenni's had a cough for the past couple of weeks, bless 'er) we took a drive through the New Forest to Milford-on-sea for an hour or so at the seaside before taking a trip into Verwood to visit Beth's great-aunt Marian.

The time went so quickly - it was no time before we were awake and heading back up the motorway home. The weekend was just starting, though, and the children had www.swim4.co.uk swimming lessons at the local school.

I've updated the gallery with some of the photos of our trip.

On Sunday, we took the children for the first time this year (practically!) to Ashridge for a picnic - the perfect way to finish off the weekend!

So it's back to work again - it'll be a long week, but I'm really looking forward to the World Cup.

world cup fever

  • www.fantasyfacup.com/worldcup : I heard about World Cup Predictor on a new podcast - The World Cup Cast, five minute shorts on various aspects of this year's competition. It's free to enter, and you could win $1000 if you get it all right (or something!) It's a bit of fun - you can see my (fairly guesswork-based!) predictions here.
  • www4.cd-wow.com/footy_predictor.php : CD-Wow has a fun football predictor game - again, free to enter and with virtual vouchers to be won. This is slightly more time-intensive to pursue, though, since every day the matches change, but worth doing, I'd say!
