As ever with the school holidays, I'm juggling work and childcare. But last Friday I took the day off work and spent some time with my boys. All of them, as my husband took a rare half day holiday too.
It was blissful to wake up and not to have to marshal the troops to our various destinations on time. Instead I pootled around in my PJ's and dressing gown - aahhh!
In the afternoon, we took a jaunt out in the car to nearby Nantwich to Snugburys, an ice-cream farm. Not only do they service a fantastic variety of ice-cream, but every year they also build a massive statue in straw.
Last year it was a bear, and in the Olympic year, a huge Olympic ring with a cyclist on the top of it. A few years ago it was a mere cat which was just brilliant.
This year it was a Dalek
It can be seen from miles around and took 700 man hours to build the steel girders and then pack with straw.
I love the sign directing people towards it.
The piglets were quite cute too.
But best of all was the ice-cream. Honeycomb's my favourite and I managed to bring home a tub of it too! It's nestling in the freezer for when I really need it.
What's your favourite ice-cream?
