Am expecting it to change soon - mainly as there's a sports day this week and of course the Latitude Festival next weekend (getting a tad excited now about that)!
Friday night saw MrVV & I deposit the right boy with the right gear at 2 separate locations - with only the minor hazard of a closed road (and 3 mile detour) to negotiate!! However the detour did take us past the pub and it would have been rude not to call in for a quick drink wouldn't it ;)
Saturday we knew as soon as we woke was going to be a hot one - decided that as a treat for big son we'd head to Southwold for a fish & chip lunch on the Prom. Very scrummy - no pics - I forgot. We did a bit of celeb spotting too and spent a little while having a chat with Sean Lock (comedian) and his rather cute toddler son.
Had a wander along the prom - a perfect day - sunshine and calm sea;
A few mad people were being made dizzy on the boat trips;
Rather them than me - I'll settle for dry land any day.
The beach was fairly busy - lots of children digging and parents soaking up the sun.
We decided to head back home for the shade of our garden - MrVV with the papers and me with my knitting.
We were up very early this morning - 6am, so big son could catch the coach for the Youth Games. We managed to scare his old PE teacher - she really was shocked to see him taking part in a sports event - just shows with there is probably a 'right' sport out there for everyone. He had a great day - playing singles/mixed & doubles - some wins and some close loses. I don't think he'll be awake too late tonight.
We had wanted to go and watch him this morning but as we had to collect little son in the middle of the day this wasn't possible :(
What a shock we got when we arrived at Little Son's camping base - he was covered in mozzie bites - 20 in total including 5 really nasty ones on his face around one eye. They nearly called us last night to collect him but he wanted to remain with his friends. Lots of ice has been applied this afternoon and antihistamines taken - hopefully he won't look too bad for school tomorrow.
I've been looking enviously at lots of pics of homegrown veg on other blogs - well today its my turn to show the first few things picked from the garden - not much - enough to be added to a salad for dinner tonight though;
Very tasty they were too - look forward to more of these over the coming weeks.
Have a good week - just think for most its only 9 school days till the hols :)
