A few weekends ago - while dh decorated the lounge - I went away with the kids to visit friends in Nottingham. We went via The National Space Centre at Leicester. Well worth a visit and good value as you can exchange your day ticket for a year's pass. Unfortunately, although the home educator's discounts are very good, we couldnt' make use of them AND have the year's pass, so we paid in full.
Ok, so we live quite a distance from Leicester, and I don't think we'll be having frequent visits to the centre, but it'll give us an excuse to go and see our friends again.
Ds1 being David Bailey (though I'm guessing David Bailey would have chosen a more attractive model to photograph)
And ds2, trying on a spacesuit for size. Hmm...perhaps black would be more slimming?
Crossing the stepping stones.Unfortunately you can't see it in this photo, but at one point across the river the stones were under water. And yes, I did get wet feet!
Fab scenery! And ds2 posing.
As you can see the sun was shining, but that wind...brrrr...hence the coats.Yep, I could certainly tell we were Up North; there was a definite temperature difference for us soft southerners lol.
It seems the older I get, the less hardy I become.
