Hello all,

I was wondering if people could share their favourite days out. For the first time in a while I have Sunday off with my partner and the weather is fantastic. Normally we go out to Kent but has anyone got other suggestions that they like to do?

The queue at the zoo was loonnngg last week, so get there early. Tesco vouchers are good value to get in, as it's 20.

Syon House? not too far train to Kew Bridge, come out of station cross road and a short bus ride away ( and i mean short)they have moved the lovely old butterfly house.
They have a Enchanted Wood which is lit by 1000 lights, also archeological dig there at moment, go on website for more events. When I was fit and able I loved the house and grounds...:-(

Julia I first took my grand-daughter there when she was about 7, we ended up eventually in the Butterfly House , the pair of us were entranced by all the butterflies flying around, and when several landed on my flowered blouse my grand-daughter thought I had some magic special powers..needless to say i did not disuade her! She had her moment when she held her tiny fingers under a leaf that a butterfly has just landed on, and with a gentle push from her other hand made the butterfly walk onto her finger! It looked like she had a budgie perched on it...the smirk on her face as she was showing any other child was a true joy to behold..
Trouble is the little madam did not want to come out and as the butterfly house was home to all exotic species was like a flipping sauna three hours later I emerged with stringy wet hair dripping down my cheeks, she? she looked as fresh as a daisy!
