So it’s been a pretty great weekend! Summer holidays always brings pressure with what to do that’s interesting, but doesn’t cost a fortune, and makes T feel like this is what summer holidays are all about.
So we started off with Thursday, we did a spot of food shopping in the morning and then it turned into quite a grey and cloudy day so in the afternoon we stayed on the sofa watching George’s Dragon, a really great film. After that we went to last ballet lesson before break and I cooled us homemade burgers which were so good!
Friday we we took Poppy round the lake,A lap of 2.5 miles and it was such a windy day T’s bike blew over when she stopped to use her new stand!
After this we had some good friends over for a playdate and using inspiration from the film we watched T got everyone to decorate a picture of a dragon as an art activity! The girls all loved it really got creative! Afterwards they spent some time playing outside and eating strawberries, raspberries and blueberries on a strawberry Angel delight as a treat! We had a lovely afternoon.
Friday nights dinner was salmon and brocolli pasta with a creme fraiche and chive sauce.
Saturday was a very special day, We became godparents to our good friends son Kaleb. We felt very honoured to be asked and with Scott also doing a reading during the ceremony it was such a great day. Although I have to say T’s favourite part was probably the bouncy castle at the party after!
Again the weather turned bad later on so it was comfy clothes and a film again and this time it was Mr Peabody and Sherman! T also finished a colouring she had started on the last day of school.
Today we have been to riding, She had a great lesson, right up until she fell off! Well it was more of a plop but she was fine and got herself a certificate for being brave! I think she just wanted to christen her new jodphurs on the sand!
This afternoon T played outside while we gave the garden a good tidy up, it’s amazing how much you can clear up if you haven’t done it for a while and we got loads done while T amused herself. After we popped out and finally got some cushions to finish our garden seat that Scott built a couple of months ago. I’m really pleased with how it looks now. Scott made dinner tonight and it was delicious!
Hope you’ve all had a great weekend and start to the summer holidays, I would love to hear what you have been upto!
