Yesterday afternoon we took C to a local ‘pick your own’ farm. I love strawberries in the summer and although supermarket strawberries taste ok you don’t get many in a punnet, and because C thoroughly enjoyed picking his own pumpkin last October. We’re really lucky to have a farm literally down the road. Once we arrived we collected a punnet and went off to find the strawberry patch (there were loads!) We had SO much fun. It’s funny how a simple little half an hour doing something so simple can be so enjoyable. I loved watching C’s rummaging through the bushes and watching his little face get all excited when he found a nice big ripe strawberry.

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…
