Fishing and Kite Flying

We had a quiet Easter weekend, and week of holidays following. As we live on a pretty tight budget and with no time to save to go anywhere after all the bills we have had, we spent time at home fixing the cubby house (well my husband did) and we also did a couple of free holiday activities.

We flew kites, well tried to but it wasn’t very windy.

We went fishing. My (selfish) head was saying Noooo I hate fishing, but my heart was saying, the kids will love it and they need to get outside. So we went and it was fun, even though very windy, we all had a great time.
