Well as ever, March was quite an eventful month. We started out with that awful virus that was going around, debilitating the whole household for a good week, then the boiler was condemned and we spent another evening at A&E making sure that the carbon monoxide poisoning hadn't harmed us too much. Between the illnesses, here is a taster of what we have been up to.

Birthday in Brum

We celebrated my birthday a day early this year due to everyone working my actual birthday. We decided to visit Birmingham for a spot of shopping, somewhere nice for lunch and of course, my birthday wouldn't be complete without a NT trip ;)

We spent an hour exploring the Bull Ring, picking up some bargains on the way, new shoes for spud, a new dress and some CD's for the birthday girl!

We opted for Jamie's Italian for lunch and we weren't disappointed, especially with our lovely waiter! Each of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and yummy mocktails!

We navigated away across the city quite easily, and made our way to NT Back to Backs. This is an unusual property, a court of back to back houses. Each house is prepared in the era of some of its past residents, starting from 1840 and ending in 1960. We particularly enjoyed the fact that it was a 'hands on' property, meaning Louie could really interact and get stuck in.

Walking back to the car park, Louie found a park to let off some steam (in his gorgeous new orange shoes!) and so concludes our birthday trip!

Kedleston Trails

Easter isn't easter without a National Trust egg hunt! As we were short on time, we chose a nearby property to visit and ended up at Kedleston Hall. It was wet and muddy and Pappy was wearing thoroughly inappropriate footwear... nonetheless we soldiered on and completed the quite difficult egg hunt! (Did anyone else find it as hard as we did?!)

Next we visited the house and took part in another trail, this time we were hunting for little fluffy chicks. I think I can speak for most of the families participating that the adults had more fun than the kids did!

It's safe to say we made the most of a wet and miserable day, once again!
