So, what have we been up to so far?
Can you tell how happy that makes me??!!
Fortunately, there have been sunny days at home as well!
Which have enabled the games - and the bits - to go outside!
Just in case you're worried, there have been away-days, too!
We have checked out the local museum!
Where the boys saw the big versions of their playthings.....
Pretended to be Romans...
And saw a slightly too realistic display about the Colosseum!
I like to start the summer hols slowly - we all appreciate some
'not doing too much' days after the buzz at the end of
the school term.
We've done much more exciting 'away-days' as well - stay turned over the next few days!

First, I bought a case for my camera. I have to admit that my
lovely camera has been living in the plain, black sock
that came with it free!! I know, shocking. I had
planned to make one but it just hadn't happened yet.
Now I don't need to feel ashamed, because the wonderful
Cath Kidston has done it for me (and all for just £8!)
Lastly, I thought the boys might like these when we
next make cakes!
If you saw the shop, you'd know how restrained I was!
Mind you, I am planning my next trip!

Another Ladybird book, (I'll show you my collection one day!!);
A card to frame. I've obviously reached an age where I'm
getting nostalgic about my childhood!
And, last, but by no means least, a piece of fabric to make
a skirt with (thanks for the idea, Lizzie!)
And look how beautifully it goes with the cardigan
I bought from a charity shop on the same day.
It was bought to back a crochet cushion
but I have other ideas for it now!
Hope you liked that, Ali!

Yeah, thought so!
Did you know you can play catch with a hoover?
Excuse me while I just go to arrange some real 'play-dates' for my son!
