Rainy Sunday in New Brighton

Rainy Sunday in New Brighton

On Sunday we were faced with a day without plans (rare for me and my Mini Travellers) and a day of rain and blustery winds. We decided to head over to New Brighton for the day and started with a trip to The Light to watch Inside Out. The Light run a great deal on a Saturday/Sunday morning as it is only £3 a head and they change the films regularly (ps reference not sponsored in any way, just like the idea!).

Inside Out if you haven’t already seen it is just brilliant! It’s funny, it is sad, it is thoughtful. At times I thought the story might be a little too much for my three, all under 5 but actually since it’s been a fab way of them explaining how they are feeling. Eve said to me this morning. Mummy when Lily did that Anger came into my head, and moved Joy out of the way!

We were all crying by the end of the film and I was hoping we would go straight for lunch at Pizza Express, but when we walked out of the cinema the rain had eased off a little and we decided to take the bikes out for a spin on the front.

Thankfully we had packed big coats with us and I had my new rain coat on from Happy Rainy Days.  I was thrilled that I’d chosen to put it on that day as the full length mac kept the wind at bay, and I think looked pretty stylish. Obviously on these photos I am wearing it for a day out messing about with the girls but I think it would be just as fab to wear over my suit for work!

The girls managed quite a few trips up and down the prom. Prom’s are perfect for biking and scooting as they are flat but they can be so cold too as the wind whips off the sea.  I was fine (in my new coat!) but they soon decided they were freezing as whilst we had remembered their big coats we had failed to remember their hats and gloves.

We made our way to Prezzo for lunch, our staple Pizza Express being closed with technical issues and had a really lovely meal.  I’ll definitely be returning to Prezzo to try out more of their meals as I was very impressed with their Tots Menu for Under 5’s for just £3.95 which was 3 courses and included a drink.

We left Prezzo and returned home at about 3pm.  A little more bike riding, followed by Strictly Come Dancing (again) ended a really lovely Sunday.

NB: Happy Rainy Days sent me the coat, but all views on it and our day out are my own.

Ah I see you had a photographer on hand to get full coat shots! It looks fab, and there is nothing like a walk on a cold windy day is there? x

Oh my gosh Inside Out is one of the best films this year, if not for a few years! Glad you were able to get out for a walk, looks lovely and I like your coat too! Prezzo is great for family meals isn't it?xx #countrykids

We adore Inside Out. Like you, we were worried it may be too much for a 4 year old, but after seeing it a few times (I know..!) we talk about feelings and how we can deal with them all the time.

The promenade looks great, look pretty perfect for cycling and scooting, we've been struggling with Lisbon's cobbled streets ;)

Some of my favourite days are the ones where you have nothing planned and you just go out on a whim. It looks like you had a lot of fun. And I love the pic of the girls whizzing around on their bikes. Such cuties! That coat looks awesome too. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
