Mummy & Corey Day Out #1


Today Corey and I had a fun day out, so I thought I would share a bit of what we got up too :)

We started the day off at our local park, I haven't taken Corey there since it had a renovation and it was fantastic, but I wasn't expecting sand (we wore sandals, argh)! After a couple of hours we walked our way into town for a lunch date. Went to Yates, which is such a bargain as was like £7 ish for both our meals and a drink each plus the food is always so yummy! He had a sad face as he didn't want pictures taken, grumpy pants. We headed to the shops and I was desperate for the loo, so headed to Beales, why are their toilets right in the middle of the toy section? We couldn't leave until we brought a toy, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. We wanted to head home but Corey was far too tired at this point, so we headed to The Kiln, which you paint pottery we chose a racing car of course. It looks a bit funny now, but has to be oven cooked and glossed so will actually be red and grey next week. Follow me on Instagram here to see the final look, and got my fingers crossed it turns out okay! Almost 7 hours later and we are finally home :)

We got so many comments on his Tom & Jerry top we got from Next which you can see in my latest haul here.

I admit I don't have much money so days like these are very few, but sometimes you just have too! Usually when we go out, it's with my family as we all love spending time together. Last week wasn't the greatest plus I spent it poorly so didn't actually leave the house for like 5 days! But it was so nice to have a day just us two, bonding and we had a really good day :) A very happy (tired) mummy and Corey!!

How do you spend your days having fun? Would love some ideas, preferably on the cheaper side.

Love, Gemma xo

  3. Looks like you both had a fantastic day! Lovely photos x

  4. Sounds like a lovely day, and that looks like a great park. Haha, my daughter will never smile for me when I get the camera out anymore - she'll either look away or pull a funny face! x

  5. Looks like a fun day! As my girl is only diddy (13 wks today) I like to take her out for walks in the pushchair. We have a favourite spot in the local park - under a big tree! :) xx #mummymonday

  6. Ahhhh...what a lovely day out. That car is brilliant and such a great activity to do together. I think the best days out are spontaneous and feature a trip to the local park. I'm glad you both had a great time. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
