Week 5 – 22nd – 28th August. This was the week I started to struggle. The first 4 weeks of the summer were fine, there weren’t too many arguments or fighting or boredom. This week we all started to drive each other a little mad. Funds had also started to dwindle at the end of the month!It was mainly a boring, at home week, with plenty of tidying, cleaning and catching up on things that had been neglected through the summer. On Tuesday we did pop to The Mall at Cribbs Causeway to see the Gromit Unleased Exhibition. A couple…

Week 4 – 14th – 21st August 2016 We started off our first day back from holiday, and our first day reunited with Harley with a lovely river walk. Harley had a whale of a time swimming in the river and Daddy and the kids had fun hunting for Pokemon! Little did Harley, or we know, this would be his last walk for a while. Poor Harley managed to catch Kennel Cough whilst he was boarding, and the symptoms started to show on Monday. He had the most awful cough and would gag every time. He also started sneezing out…

I’m so totally behind with all my summer posts at the moment, but it is lovely as I’m having fun going back through the photos more than a month on.

Every year we try and get in a family holiday to Cornwall. We have been going nearly every year since Izzie was a tiny baby, and sometimes we go with my parents and have stayed…

If you are in the Cotswolds, its beautiful for a day out, but in Autumn, gets incredibly busy. In March, we visited, and I had my ‘big camera’ and managed to get a few shots of the little Brushneens amongst the bluebells.                              …

Week 2 1st-5th August (This is a shorter week as we went on holiday on Saturday, so wanted to include our week away in one post) This week was again a very quiet week – I had in the back of my mind that we were going away on the Saturday, and so most of the week was spent tidying, cleaning and washing clothes. Monday started off quiet, but within two hours of breakfast, Izzie had given Ollie a black eye (accidentally). The rest of the day was spent having a catch up with one of my best friends and…
