Days out on a Staycation – Sudbury Hall, Museum of Childhood

So much to do at Sudbury We got to the car park for Sudbury Hall very easily as it is just off the A50. Knowing that the car park was a bit of a walk away we got there just before it opened at 10am, there was plenty of space at this time. However I […]

Days Out on a Staycation – it’s child’s play at Old Moor RSPB

Fun times at Old Moor I wanted to write about our most recent day out at Old Moor RSPB reserve whilst it was fresh in my head. Unfortunately that means trying to blog between ironing, feeding people and suffering kids T.V while I write. Oh and of course sorting out any squabbles that occur! So […]

Avocet on parade

  I was so excited when I heard that there were Avocets on one of the lakes at the RSPB Old Moor as they are such an iconically beautiful bird. So we set off as a family to see if we would be lucky (and patient enough) to see this beautiful elegant bird. We started […]

Cormorant phone case

Welcome to my first blog and Autoblogography from Derbyshireduckie

Here goes… I’ve decided to finally bite the bullet (well actually I was kind of pushed seeing as my husband worked hard in secret to create my website as a gift- slightly worried as I never knew he was so sneaky!) and put my thoughts out there for all to see. Being an eternal worrier […]
