What plans do you have for the summer?


  1. Great list. The great north museum is fab. For a train ride the Stephenson museum has heritage train rides at the weekend which are good fun. My son loved the old train. Ouseburn farm is good as well, we went recently but not written it up yet)

    1. I have heard great things about it....My girls have been at various times with the school and have raved about it....
      Thanks for the tips x

  2. Love this list of things to do over the summer - think I will have to borrow a few of these to add to our list! I love the idea of water gun painting - sounds like it would be great fun. Hope you manage to get all of these ticked off over the summer :-)

    1. The water gun painting sounds fab! I can't wait to give it a try!

  3. Loads of good days out and ideas for fun there! Though I've got visions of paint splattered girls with the water gun painting! :D Lets hope we get a good run of decent weather now. I won't be returning to work until around Mid September, so I'm going to make the most of the next few summer months, I'll have to make my own list now :D
