UK union flag England staycation

There has never been a better time to explore the UK, with staycations becoming increasingly popular and the host of iconic attractions the UK has to offer, there is absolutely no reason not to explore the diversity of the United Kingdom. Not everyone has the time to take a weekend break or a longer staycation though, sometimes you just want a day out, and here are 40 of the best options for days out in the UK!

It should go without saying that to take a day trip you would need to be relatively local to these attractions, and there is nothing wrong at all in turning any of them into a weekend break or a staycation either, but if you are just looking for some of the best options for days out or day trips in the UK, look no further!

Our World Adventure – Democratic Republic of Congo

Okapi are so cool!

Anyday Adventures

For our second last week of our big trip we headed to the Democratic Republic of Congo, or DR Congo for short. Another country I knew absolutely nothing about, but our first time in Africa.

On reading a little bit about DR Congo, I learnt it was very rich in gemstones, diamonds and gold. I thought it would be fun to make “diamonds” with the girls, they turned out great. The best part was we grew this diamond in only about 5 hours, so was fun to keep checking on it throughout the day.

Head here for the video (it’s so sparkly) and to get the instructions to make it.

We also learned that DR Congo was the only place that the Okapi is found…. it’s a type of animal if you didn’t know. A little similar to a giraffe but with stripes like a zebra.

First we watched these…

Three Things Challenge #385

For 3TC: https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/10/11/three-things-challenge-385/

Your three things today are:


When Billy and I walked into the house my mother was in hysterics. We had no idea what she was crying about and then I saw movement in my peripheral vision. Turning that way I saw a giant spider. No wonder she was freaking out! I started wailing too and our noise was sounding like a rock song. The loudness must have scared the creature away because suddenly we were alone and Billy was rolling on the floor laughing.

The Cat’s New Game

The Cat in the Hat  
came back to the house  
He knew that the kids  
were with mom and her spouse.  
He took out his fist  
and knocked on the door  
The kids they were happy  
to see him once more  
He told them he wanted  
to play a new game  
he said he would tell them  
Choo Choo was the name.  
He said that the game  
was to work as a team  
to fit each together  
like a train full of steam  
Hold on to each other  
march along like a group  
walk in a circle  
make a big, giant loop  
Then make a loud noise  
like a whistle of steam  
isn’t this fun  
to work along as a team 
The Cat said goodbye 
when he cleaned up the toys 
Choo Choo was a great game 
even with the loud noise.

The Bird – The Sunday Whirl: Wordle #477

Thanks to Brenda for hosting: https://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/2020/10/11/wordle-478/

The Bird

I’ve heard there’s a bird  
who was grim and was blue  
he didn’t have much  
that he liked to do.  
He’d dribble when drinking  
and groan with each bite  
Other birds stared with pity  
some knew he wasn’t quite right.  
From up in the tree top  
amongst leaves and debris  
the bird was disgusted  
and wondered how this could be.  
So with a smile and a shrug  
he acquiesced to his prowess  
he decided to figure  
to rid life of its foulness.  
Instead of his usual 
crying high in the tree  
he decided his bawling 
was in no way healthy 
with a ruffle of feathers 
and a flick of his beak  
up the treetop he went  
and he began there to speak 
It was inevitable that he  
got right to the tip  
done lamenting on faults 
his attitude did flip. 
He looked at the sky, 
and inhaled really quick  
and fell to the ground 
where the cushioning was thick.  
He ran to the edge 
of the forest he knows  
and screamed from his lungs  
He said “My old life blows!” 
So a new life began 
right there on the spot 
the bird he was smokin’ 
The new bird was hot. 
He had some new friends  
and he laughed and he played 
and with his new friends 
is the place that he stayed.
