Bristol

So at the weekend we had a family trip to Bristol to go to the Science museum and the planetarium.

The science museum was good with lots of things for Izzy to get hands on with…It could probably do with a bit of an update as it was beginning to look a little bit tired but still well worth the money.

There are all kinds of experiments to do from making your own animations, to huge bubbles, to learning about the human body.
I have to say though that my favourite bit was the planetarium…It was proper awe inspiring and amazingly done in 3D.  I know it reawakened my interest in the night sky and Izzy looked genuinely impressed as well!!  There was even a bit at the end where they put up all the constellations with pictures overlayed and allowed you to take picturesWe finished the day with a nice meal and returned home having had a lovely day all together.

Swimming Lessons

So Izzy and I go swimming on a regular basis but she has been struggling on the last hurdle to swimming on her own, so we decided to enroll her in organised lessons….She was so nervous before going but she was brave and went along….

She did so well…she did everything they asked her to and she tried her very hardest…I think it’s one of those moments as a parent where it would be impossible to be more proud….

But I will let her tell you all about it….
