Next week school stops for the summer for my 3 kids, so the school runs, homework, packed lunches, mountains of notes and announcements……are all stopping.
Instead we will have
lie-ins early morning wakening as usual (my kids don’t DO lie-ins..YET!), go-slow days, trips to park and beach, and hopefully this warm sunshine will continue. CSSM will start soon in Portballintrae and for my daughters this is a highlight of their social calendar.
As usual, my blog has been a bit neglected recently, and I know when friends are approaching me at church as asking if I am ok as I haven’t been blogging in a while, that I am being missed!
As a blogger I sometimes get the opportunity to review products for companies, so coming soon to this blog will be a review of a product from CSN. CSN Stores has amazing online stores where you can find everything from cookware to lighting to furniture! So watch this blog and see which product I choose to review 🙂
So what’s been happening since my last post:
2 sports days
the essential egg and spoon race:
and the novelty race!
My middle daughter at senior sports day:
TRIVIA QUESTION – can you name the gold Olympic athlete in the above picture?
- several BBQ’s
- lots of jewellery being created and sold (sorry my online store has not been added to recently – everything I make seems to get sold without the need to put it online) but here are a few of my recent creations
catching up with friends before the summer
school projects (I know more than I ever wanted to about African Monkeys)
and whats not been happening:
- rain (yes! – June has been an unexpectedly warm, dry month)
- photography – slipping up a bit, my photography always seems to have a purpose these days, but I love taking photos for no reason at all! However I have a couple to share of the
weedsflowers in our garden and of my son, a view from ground level!
So what have you been up to recently – do you have a burst of activities and tasks just before the summer?
Wherever you are, and whatever you are doing I hope you will have a great summer (or winter if you live “down under”) and hope you will keep in contact through my blog. I know quite a few of you read and never comment, but it would be lovely if you could stop by and say “hi” – thanks.
