Hurrah term has finally ended - the boys are both very happy about this. Though they have both enjoyed their last week of term - both had activity weeks and have had a great time - particularly big son, he's been to a theme park, seen Toy Story 3 in 3D, spent the day learning more diabolo tricks and today he's been paint-balling - lucky child. I remember our end of term trip when I was young was either Norwich Castle or Bressingham Steam Museum!!
Many months ago as part of a swap (can't remember which one) - I received from Jen @ TheMadHouse some sweetpea seeds. After a slow start they've suddenly sprung to life this week and this afternoon after they took a battering in a heavy shower, I cut some to bring into the house;
Gorgeous - they smell divine - thanks Jen :)
I also finally collected something today that I've meant to for several weeks. This little clock belonged to my late grandad & it was one of several he used to remind he to take his medication. I have been helping my Mum & Aunt sort out his belongings and asked if I could have this as a little reminder of him and his ways;
This week has been so busy - getting sorted from last weekend and preparing for forthcoming camping trip. Just as I finished my last load of washing, when my machine died!! Have arranged for the engineer to come first thing on Monday ( a washing free weekend then) to sort it out - it could be such an ouch moment IF we didn't rent our machine. Instead if he can't repair it - he'll just swap it for a replacement - phew!
Now this camping trip is an annual ritual - 3 families (6 adults & 6 children) - a new campsite each year. This group includes my mate Country Girl and a friend we've known for many many years. Heaps have been forming all over the house & this afternoon to make space to get to my sewing machine (must finish my latest swap pressies!!), lots of it was doubled checked and dragged downstairs and it can clutter up the hall instead!!;
Tomorrow is day 1 of the hols - wonder how it will go? Whether I'll be looking forward to day 2 or counting the hours till September!! I shall let you know next time ;)
