On the weekends I struggle. It’s no secret now that the kids are growing up, I find Saturdays when Ell plays football really hard with three kids on my own – if you follow me on Instagram , you’ll regularly see my Saturday moans. This time of year, it is also harder to get out the house with them, being cold, dark and often rainy. After a miserable Saturday last week, where the kids did nothing but fight and make a mess, by the time Ell got home from football I had had enough.
I made the spur of the moment decision, that on Sunday we were going to go somewhere, to walk the dog. I wanted to go to the seaside as my head was fuzzy and I felt in dire need of fresh air. Weston Super Mare is just under an hour from us, and this time of year you are able to take dogs on the beach. The weather in Wiltshire was really foggy and damp, but the closer we got to the coast, the brighter it became. Visiting Weston for a winter dog walk was also on my UK Travel Bucket List for 2017.
