Fun Days Out For The Whole Family

Fun days out can be the bane of any family, especially when young kids are involved. Whether it be planning a day out on a budget, or trying to inspire your children to do great things with educational trips, it can be a tough chore. When looking for a good day out that everyone can enjoy, here is what I look for.


Price:
I’m sure you know the pain of being on a bit of a budget when it comes to getting the family out. There are mouths to feed as well as minds to inspire and keep entertained. Fun days out for kids can be the hardest part of any parent’s job. The best thing to do is to pick something that is not only affordable for your budget, but can be enjoyed by all!

When considering the price; look at what you plan on eating, as this can be the biggest drain on your budget. It could be cheaper to take a picnic for your family - and healthier too!


Activities:
After the price, you need to decide what you want to do with your family. Do you want to get into the great outdoors and do some exploring? Or do you want to do something indoors whilst the rain pours down outside?


You could go out and explore Eilean Donan Castle, or you could go to an indoor play centre and let the kids run themselves tired. Whatever you choose to do to kill some time with the family, make sure it’s fun and enjoyable for all.

Can the whole family get involved?
If the whole family can’t be involved, then what’s the point in going? Right? The best thing about trips to the great outdoors is that everyone can enjoy the walking, climbing and exploring of the day. And the best thing about indoor play centres is that the kids can run riot in a safe environment. And the parents can have fun watching them while sitting back and relaxing over a drink. Whatever you may choose to do, make sure that fun can be had by all. And make sure the kids will be exhausted by the end of the day, allowing you an easy drive home.

Getting there and back:
This has got to be one of the most irritating parts of any day out. How will we all get there? How will we get back? Is it cheaper to take the bus or car? These are all questions that you will likely ask, and should consider. When it comes to the affordability of your day out, ensure that the method of getting about you choose is cost efficient. For instance, maybe taking a cheaper would be better for your purse than taking the family car? Public transport isn’t just better for the environment, but can be an easier, and more affordable, way of getting where you want to go .

These are only some of the things that I keep an eye on when planning a family day out. And if you keep an eye on these factors too, then I’m sure that a fantastic time can be had by all.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
