When we go out for the day, ice cream is pretty much essential. Especially when it was a hot sunny day at Countryfile Live. This was taken at the bandstand in the villlage green area. I loved the old fashioned stripy deckchairs too.
We’re onto week 32 of this year’s Project 365, a photo a day for a year. It’s been quieter this week on the photo front. But I’ve got another week off work this week so hopefully will have lots of photo opportunities. Here’s this week’s photos. On Sunday we went to Countryfile Live at Blenheim Palace. The highlight of N’s day was sitting in a potato harvester. On Monday I popped into town at lunchtime and on the way back… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 32”
The end of week 2 of the school holidays and N chooses to go to soft play. It was a bit of a surprise, I’d expected another day without him while he went out farming. Luckily our local soft play was surprisingly empty so he had a good 1 1/2 hours of play before he was ready for lunch. His favourite part was trampolining. He’s really missed our trampoline which blew away (yes all 14 feet of it) in new… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 32 – trampolining”
Oops. I looked out of the window and this is what I saw. I’m presuming rather than the father-in-law driving into it on the mower, it was like that because he tried to pull it out the way to mow the jungle underneath it. Thankfully the OH was able to pull it back into place! We’ve already lost the trampoline 18 months ago to wind, we can’t lose the climbing frame as well.
This week I took more photos than I thought. There’s been quite a bit of patio tennis in the evenings (I’ve finally bought new grip for my racquet – one of my favourite most relaxing things, putting on new grip! so no more pink hands), and quite a lot of rain showers. But we’re through week 2 of the school holidays and I’m already realising I need to get off my backside and organise our final week off and somewhere… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 31 – bunting and flowers”
The first week of the summer holidays, we spent on our annual camping trip with several of our farming friends – mums and kids, plus a couple of dads. We were missing a few of the families from last year, but it’s a lovely group to spend time with and brilliant for the children to enjoy each other’s company. The first 2 days were beautiful – sunny and hot. After pitching the tents, we headed down to Three Cliffs Bay… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 31 – beach digging”
This year’s camping trip with our friends (mums and kids, plus 2 token dads), was to the Gower in Wales. We were camping right above Three Cliffs Bay which is stunning…but a painful walk back up from the beach even without all your camping gear. There’s a choice of route down to the bay. We decided to go via the river and stepping stones which was lovely. Then it was a long slog over to near the water where we… Continue Reading “My Sunday Photo – stepping stones”
Week 1 of the summer holidays is complete and we’re back from our annual camping trip with friends. For the first time in 3 trips, we had more rain than sun, although I’m glad we got 2 days of amazing sun unlike those arriving at the end of our trip who were due more wind and rain. I didn’t get much sleep unusually (well, my fitbit* says I did, but I seemed to see every hour so not sure how… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 30 – camping and puppies”
N had an inset day on Friday and decided that he just wanted to go to the park for a cycle. He didn’t manage much cycling because we had so much other stuff to do for camping prep, so stuck with the playground instead. This isn’t his natural face…I caught him just as he was grimacing about me taking a photo, but I like the openness of his body as he popped out of the tunnel.
