Hubby has had a few days off work this week and so we’ve been enjoying being away on a little holiday together and having some
I’ll be blogging more about what we’ve been up to over the last few days later on, but we’ve been having lots of fun travelling around and hunting for gold postboxes. One of the things I’ve loved about doing our gold postbox challenge over the last couple of years is that it has given us an excuse to visit different parts of the country that perhaps we might not have visited otherwise. We were originally intending to visit the Isle of Man so we could visit the last Olympic postbox on our list but as the ferry was fully booked, we had to give up on this plan and so we decided to look for some of the Paralympic gold postboxes on our list. Over the last few days, we have visited Norfolk, Lincoln, the Peak District, and the Midlands before heading home again. We have ticked another nine postboxes off our list and are now three-quarters of the way through the Paralympic ones – total now stands at 33 postboxes out of 46.
As well as the postboxes, we visited Norwich Castle and Lincoln Cathedral (where Jessica particularly enjoyed running around the labyrinth). Hubby and I also had a little moment of reminiscing on our journey through the Peak District as we drove past Buxton Opera House where we performed a couple of times in our university days during the G&S Festival. Sophie and Jessica both coped quite well with the travelling and also enjoyed a trip to CBeebies Land – all in all, we’ve had a fun time.
