We’ve had a really lovely weekend, both days have been absolutely stunning weather wise. We’ve had lots of sunshine and clear blue skies which after last week it’s been very nice. On Saturday (1st August) we went crab fishing. We drove to our local Quay which is only about 10 minutes away and as we arrived we noticed they had a mini craft festival there for the weekend. I used to go here crab fishing loads when I was little. I’ve got lots of memories of being there with friends catching crabs and then releasing them back into the water when we were finished. I was excited to be taking both the kids and although we did take L a few years back when we were over for a holiday, this time they could both join in because C was only 10 months old the last time. I was a…

I honestly can’t believe we’re into August already. This year seems to be flying by. It doesn’t seem like five minutes ago we had Christmas. For us in July it saw L complete her time in year 7, although she only joined the school in May she’s all done in year 7. July also bought my Mum & Step-Dad to us, they have just returned home after being with us for 10 days, they actually only left yesterday. We absolutely loved having them to stay and we had a brilliant week. Both kids adored having them and they were throughly spoilt. They bought them a huuuuge trampoline for the garden and they bought C a slide and goal post as an early Birthday present. August is a month for Birthdays …. it’s Hubby’s this week and it’ll be mine in a few weeks too. It’s also still the summer holidays…

I had a few forms that needed filling out this afternoon so I thought what better time to set up and little Arts & Crafts activity for C on the table next to me. I went to Home Bargains this morning and quite literally picked up some bargains. I bought a few items for a sticking activity. I also used some items that you would normally in the kitchen cupboard to make things a little different, using different textures and shapes. He loved it and I got my forms filled out!

Last week was actually a really lovely week so I thought I would share it with you. Monday – We still didn’t have a car so we spent the day just pottering round the garden – the weather was amazing. C had a music class in the morning and my sister come with us. When we got home we sat in the garden for a few hours with C in and out of his paddling pool. Tuesday – We finally received our documents for the car. WOOHOO it’s now all official and registered on UK number plates. We didn’t have all the paperwork and number plates sorted until the afternoon so up until they arrived we spent more time in the garden enjoying the sunshine. It was so good though in the afternoon being able to pop out in the car for a drive – just to have the freedom…

Snow!!! The snow arrived! It started yesterday afternoon but it didn’t really settle until later on in the evening. We woke this morning though to a blanket of white everywhere! It was so lovely to see. We don’t often get snow that sticks around let alone the depth we woke to this morning. L was so excited & C was fascinated by it. They both had a lovely morning playing around outside, all wrapped up making snowmen and throwing snowballs.
