Good evening (just)
The end of the month is upon us again almost. Month 8 starts of Wednesday - 2/3 of 2012 gone by already!!
Now normally at the end of the month there are 3 lots of mosaics to share - however this month, there is only one :(
There wasn't a Photo Scavenger Hunt this month - am guessing Kathy has been rather snowed under at work :( Seems strange not consulting a list and happily ticking them off.
I've also no entry into the Monthly Makes club - until yesterday afternoon I'd not picked up a crochet hook for over a month!! Hoping with forthcoming Bertie trips I might get my current blanket finished!
So here it it - one mosaic for the end of July - these mosaics hopefully will make up a calendar for our household next year - I just need to make 2 more - one for August and one for September.
For July we have - Big Sons Prom, The Olympic Torch Relay, Little Son in the flood, Sweetpeas from the garden, cherries on the tree, buddleia in bloom, a full moon (at the beginning of the month), end of term sweets and a trip to Southwold.
We're into the 2nd week of the school hols now - settling into the no-school routine. Late nights and late mornings are popular with the boys - along with lots of screen time and the occasion venture out of their rooms for food and chores!!
We're watching lots from London 2012 too. I managed to stay awake for the entire Opening Ceremony - MrVV had a little doze whilst the athletes came in - between C and U - waking in time to see TeamGB. We loved it all - so quirky and British (hoping the rest of the world understood some of the more obscure references). However we all agreed - time for Macca to retire - he really seemed to be struggling.
I'm getting into all sorts of random sports - I'd never seen Handball before but that is my current favourite. I might have to stop cheering on our boys & girls though as it seems that is not helping!!
See you soon.
