On Saturday 23rd we went to visit my mum for the day, She lives in a town over from us so its either a long hour on the bus, well two buses but she came to collect us which I think made more sense as we didn’t just have ourselves but needed the high chair too.
Once we arrived to hers we set up the DVD player (we tried last time but she didn’t have the correct wires but I fixed it for her) and unfortunately because of our silliness we too a Blue-ray instead.. whoops.. so no Harry Potter for us.
But the aim of the day was to go out and find some conkers, or horse chestnuts to anyone else, and near where my mum lives is this wonderful street which is full of trees ready to give up their nuts for us!
At first we didn’t find many, there was loads up on the trees and plenty of leaves on the floor but no beautiful browny red nuts to be seen, so we back tracked down to another road and to our delight and happiness to the children some lady clearing her garden had left some she found under a tree, and that’s when the madness happened.
We had taken my mums little brown bag she got from her trip to New York but I really think we should’ve taken something a little bigger as there was just so many! everywhere you looked there was more and more!
Mums plan was to find some of the just opened ones to keep for spiders, I am not sure if that’s a true thing because we have had a conker in our front room and still get spiders, but we found a few for her and plenty for the children to play with, and of course I have a few for myself to make pretty flat lays with.
We returned back to my mums house and to my sons surprise I rented the last two Harry Potter films on amazon prime, they were pretty cheap and it kept them happy while mum and I entertained Robin and she got dinner ready which was a tasty sausage and mash with peas and onions mmmm!
I love going round her house at the weekend, its nice to get our of my home and away from the stress for a bit and just stress about in another house, I had been parenting alone at the end of last week as Mr S is in Birmingham at Eurogamer representing his site and I think I did a pretty good job…
No one died…
Until next time
