Somehow its thursday already and I’ve lost count of what number day it is of the holidays but I do know there is just less than 2 weeks to go until it’s back to school and work.
I’ve had my birthday which was a nice day with family and loved ones followed by a catch up with my fabulous friends. I have been a very lucky girl.
The biggest two have gone off with their dad for the last 2 week’s and despite them only being gone less than 2 days I am missing them already.
Today it’s me and the smallest people we have made cakes, been to the park and headed over to Pets at home where we had lots of fun handling a baby rabbit and a baby guinea pig. The children were then able to feed the animals and were given a poster, stickers and an information booklet all about animals and wildlife~what a fab afternoon. ❤x
Clearly yesterday wasn’t stressful enough so today this happened!
Midway through putting up the tent in not enough space and then trying to get the other paddling pool inside it I nearly lost the plot, started to wonder why on earth I was doing this and then thought back to my own childhood and the answer was clear.
I remember days in the garden with water and dens. I remember my Mum bringing us out a picnic tea and Dad stopping what he was doing to get out `the magic carpet’ for us so we could go on wonderful adventures.
I remember all of those things and how much fun we had and I want my children to have the same memories too.
Memories really do last a lifetime.
Thank you to my lovely parents to giving them to us, in turn I hope I am passing them on to my crazy bunch to enjoy today and to look back on when they are older.
As another wonderful weekend comes to a close,I’m thinking about all the lovely things we have done and just how lucky we are to have such amazing places on our doorstep.
We have walked,explored and laughed lots. Enjoying the beautiful sunshine and the breathtaking scenery.
I couldn’t ask for more.❤x
