We walked around Carsington Water with Nannie and Grandad, then spent a day with them at Alton Towers. Nannie made a delicious cake for The Princess' 9th birthday and she spent the evening opening her presents.
We also visited Drayton Manor, home of Thomas Land, which The Pickle loved! It was a long journey home afterwards, especially with part of the A34 closed, but the kids were so worn out they slept the entire way. It's been a summer holiday to remember!
