On Tuesday we did pop to The Mall at Cribbs Causeway to see the Gromit Unleased Exhibition. A couple of years ago we did parts of the Gromit Trail around Bristol, so the kids were excited to see some of them again – especially for such a fab cause!
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.
Izzies favourite is the Cath Kidston Gromit!
Muddly Wednesday – I kept finding random piles of toys everywhere – it was a one step forward, two steps back kind of day!
Thursday (or Turdsday) morning I was met bright and early with this delightful sight – Louis the dinosaur face down in a potty full of poo. I spent a fun 20 minutes picking poo out of his teeth – I don’t think the dinosaur even appreciated my efforts!!
Making the most of the sun and getting loads of washing dry!
Saturday brought our second wonderful wedding of the season. We had a fab day and evening and caught up with loads of old friends – huge congrats to Lottie and Lee.
Sunday , we went out for the day to Bristol – shopping for my birthday presents – Ell knows it is easier to give me the money and let me loose haha – I had great fun in Jo Malone, The White Company and good old Primark. We also had lunch at Frankie and Bennys – and they brought me out a free pudding with a candle and sang happy birthday to me – I think i’m just loosing the bright red face now.We had a lovely day and the kids were well behaved and ate their food, so it was a win all round!
