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.

All of my ‘big camera’ photos are in a separate photo heavy posts which you can find here, but these are my iPhone memories, with a few big camera photos thrown in for good measure. 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…

This summer has been lovely, but it has also been hectic. With the run up to the end of term, and the exhaustion that brought, to going on holiday and lots of social events going on, we lost any kind of routine we had in place during the last 6 weeks. Ell has also had a lot going on with football too, pre-season friendlies, training and the start of the league – each week not being the same as the one previous. Thats not to say I haven’t enjoyed just running with it for the last  weeks – the lack…
