Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day (Catch up)

What happened to the last week of the holidays?

It started well, we had some lovely weather and did some Family walking combined with an ice cream.

Bank Holiday Monday and my Son was due at Summer School
 (Getting him ready for the move to Big School).
He wasn't feeling great when I dropped him off and when we collected him it was obvious something was not quite right.

 So we spent the evening in the local Urgent Care Centre, followed by Children's A&E, then X-ray, etc. 
We got home just after 1:00 with an appointment for later in the week!!

The best part of Tuesday was the news that my Sister-in-law had given birth to two beautiful baby girls. 

So it was back to the Hospital to visit the babies, who are sooo beautiful.
Then back the day after for the all clear for my Son, who by then was feeling much better.

On Saturday, I left the children at home with there Dad and made a dash for it!!!
After six weeks of children's chatter I needed a break and it just happened to be Harrogate Quilt Show.
(Don't ask what I'm planning to do with my new fabric, I'll probably just add it to my collection)

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day (Kittens)

On Friday we had arranged to visit my Sons friend from school.
Not a normal 'call around to play'.

A long awaited visit to see there new kittens!!

All super cute and very playful . . . . . and then its time to rest!!!

Now every time we pass the end of there street I get 'Can we go and see the kittens?'
I said ' I don't think your friend will be in'
He said  'We could just look in through the windows, we'll be able to see the kittens!'
I'm not going round peering in through peoples windows!!!!

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day

How exciting, on Thursday I went to the car showroom to pick up a new car!!!!!

Sadly it wasn't for me, I was just the chauffeur.

But my lovely Niece is now the proud owner of a shiny new car!!

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day

Earlier in the Holidays we did a bit of Mum/Son DIY.

We made a planter for an ugly/shady area in our garden. The ferns went in on wednesday, all we need now is some barkchip mulch to finish it off.

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day (Beach)

We do like to be beside the seaside . . . . 

Wow, was it hot on Tuesday. 

Penny had a little paddle but was lovely and dry when we got back to the car.
Spreading sand in the car just like the children, taking half the beach home.

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day

What can I say? 

I've been dairy free for over a year, but the children are definitely not.
Apple pie flavoured and Lemon meringue flavoured.

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day

Last week, as my Son painted the shed I began the epic task of painting the fence.

Sunday afternoon I finished the fence around the back of the house.

Eighteen fence panels, all painted BLACK!!

I love it, it really shows off the plants. Just got the panels round the front to do . . . . 
(I realise black isn't to everyone's taste, but I love it)
