Cheap Days Out – A Rainy Adventure

My daughter has just started school, she has spent pretty much everyday with me for the last four years so it has been really tough for the both of us. There is a silver lining though, I finally get to spend some much needed alone time with my two year old son. It has been amazing bounding with him. We go on play dates with children his age rather than getting dragged along to his big sisters friends, we do arts and crafts, go to soft play, toddler groups and we go on many adventures.

Since our household has a very tight budget, I try and take advantage of our beautiful county, sunny Cornwall! I always pack a few snacks or a packed lunch to save money eating whilst we are out, so it was perfect when Aldi sent us a lovely hamper full of their award winning 100% organic baby food range.

I have been a regular shopper at Aldi since I had children four years ago, mostly for their nappies and baby wipes as well as my food shopping. We took the food pouches , rice cakes and the flavoured spring water on our blackberry picking day out.

First stop was at Falmouth docks to watch the boats and ships being worked on. Ed was mesmerised, he spent an hour watching them.

I finally got him to move on so we could find some blackberries. However, the great British weather had other ideas… It poured it down! I’m not talking about a light shower. Nope, it was an actual monsoon* (*probably not an actual monsoon)! We took shelter at Pendennis Head, which turned out to be a good idea.

Ed had a great time exploring whilst having one of his food pouches and watching the storming sea whilst eating his rice crackers.

We returned home tired, soaking wet and with no blackberries but we had a great adventure. I’m so glad I took the Aldi snacks with us. Edwin loved them and they kept him distracted until the storm passed so no tantrums! I like them because they were really handy, well priced and full of goodness.
