Keep Fit The Gelfling Grandson Way

Gelfling Grandson AKA ‘Moo’ has a passion for being outside something I have encouraged from day 1 ~ when I ask him if he’d like to go for a walk you would think I’d offered him some sort of major treat 🙂  I try to maintain a goal of 10,000 steps per day so when Moo comes to visit I know it will be a goal that is easy peasy to reach. Today was super cold but the pair of us wrapped up warm & set off into the unknown

Today’s walk will take just a tad longer as Moo needs to smash each & every puddle …obviously !!

Of course we had to call by to see how the Lincolnshire Red cattle were fairing in their barn

This chap was as pleased to see us as we were to see him 🙂

Being the adventurous duo we are ~ it was time to go off piste

The best thing about our adventure …Grandpa had a nice hot lunch & mug of hot chocolate waiting for us when we eventually arrive back at the cottage AND total steps count 11585

Halloween … I’m Not Scared

Hello Moo again (AKA Gelfling Grandson)

You remember Grandma took me Back in time ?? Well the very same day she said we could also go into Halloween Wood,

Happy Haunting ?? if only I'd known what was coming next !!

Grandma explained that everything I would see was only make belief, just masks and stuff and that I could turn back any time I wanted, now I’m a big boy of 6 so I can handle all this Halloween stuff in my stride

A pretend graveyard, I'm not scared of graveyards, Grandma lives very very close to one and we walk past it all the time

I wasn’t too sure of the next spook, but I wanted to have a close look just the same

This spook is made from old clothes and a mask ...I think Grandma might has been a little scared

At the last figure I ‘might’ have been a little bit naughty

Grandma was have a little peek through her fingers when I shouted "BOO"I think I frightened the bejesus out of her

I don’t know why but she said we were leaving after that

Where On Earth Are You Taking Me??

Grandma has been working lots and lots of days, but today she was at home, she told me to put my wellies & coat on, and get in the car, I’m not sure where we were going but it started off innocent enough

Awww look at all the ducks - I love ducks

But then I heard an almighty ROAR

Then I saw what was making all the noise a T- REX !!

Grandma has taken me back in time to the land of dinosaurs, look what was way up above my head

I can't believe I'm this close to a Brachiosaurus
I can’t believe I’m this close to a Brachiosaurus I think he’s just had a drink because he’s awfully wet

There was a snuffling sound behind me, what do you think it could be

My favourite, favourite dinosaur in the whole world a Triceratops :-)
Only my favourite, favourite dinosaur in the whole world… a Triceratops 🙂

Now this is where it got really, really scary …. Grandma told me to stand very still and be quiet …. I turned round very slowly only to see

I thought we were goners for sure, but Grandma told me to run as fast as I could, we made it back to our world just in time

On Hold

I have to hold my hands up to feeling ever so extremely slightly stressed, Beloved has had an informal offer on his redundancy, waiting for it to become official is leaving us in limbo hey ho in the mean time …

At least I have a happy place
At least I have a happy place, crafting and the cottage go hand in hand,

Soon we will be able to carve a new chapter in our lives, which we are going to view as an opportunity and adventure, exciting times or what 🙂

In the mean time we’ll carry on trying to figure out which avenues to persue

new life
Patience is not one of my virtues, but I’m working on it LOL
