days out homestyle Monday Happy List Star Wars crafts

Monday happy things {Week 136}

Last week was good. I love a Bank Holiday Monday and we decided to visit Buckinghamshire Railway Centre and Waddesdon Manor.Buckinghamshire Railway Centre was huge and although the weather wasn’t great we all enjoyed riding on the trains. We had a lovely day out but it was pretty tiring.

The highlight of our week was of course Star Wars Day! We started with a yummy Star Wars breakfast of green Yoda milk. It would have been blue Bantha milk but we didn’t have any blue food colouring. There were also Star Wars pancakes which were a fun way to start the day. This year we worked with Hallmark to review their extensive Star Wars range. We decorated the house with our special Star Wars wreath which might just stay up all year round.

This has been the week of playdates, birthday parties and playdates. The kids have had so much fun and we got a few unexpected child-free hours to relax.

We finally got round to visiting the new Ruislip Fairy Village. It was moved from its last location due to constant vandalism. It now has a lovely new home in the Manor Farm complex and I really hope it lasts longer there. When we visited there were lots of families and all the kids loved finding the doors. I even made a little video about it:

I’m not sure which came first – the idea of ‘unboxing’ toys or making YouTube videos. Anyway, we’ve dusted off our YouTube channel and made 10 videos on the past few weeks. It’s been fun to learn more about YouTube and my children just adore making videos. They actually want to ‘unbox’ everything! I’m not going to share all our YouTube videos on my blog but you can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see what we’ve been up to.

Have a great week everyone!

    ooh the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre sounds fab, just my type of thing. The National Railway Museum in York is amazing, highly recommend a trip
