Muddy Walks And Pub Lunches

Our festive celebrations wouldn’t be complete without a muddy walk to blow away the cobwebs and get rid of some of that guilt for all the over indulgence of the past few days.

We took a trip up to Box Hill to take in the beautiful views and get more than a little muddy.

We only had the youngest two with us today so it was very quiet trip but lovely to have a bit of quality time with them.

We took part in the trail today which is something we normally miss out on and we are so glad we did.  The boys climbed trees, ran along logs, hunted for bugs and built our own balance beam which came to a nasty ending as number five slipped and came straight down onto it.


I love walking along with the family just chatting and planning the year ahead.

Just to pile on a few more pounds we stopped off at our new favourite haunt The Old House in Dorking for some dinner and board games.  They are really child and dog friendly here and we love the cosy relaxed atmosphere.  I really wish we could drag Christmas out for that bit longer!
