Poor neglected blog

Life has been all change since we got back from our trip to South Africa.  With Jenna starting school until 3pm daily, Carter going 2 days a week to play group and me working longer hours whilst the husband looks for a new job the blog has been the last thing on my mind!

I miss it, but I don’t miss the time it took out of my day.  I miss the comments and the people I have met through the blog but I don’t feel like I have the time or inclination to spend hours on the pc daily to nurture the relationships and meet people on social sites.

Apologies to those who follow that I haven’t had time, or inclination if I’m honest, to keep it interesting. I hope to get back into it but for now family has to come first! But maybe I just need to be more organised time wise with the blog… let’s see, no promises but I’ll try!

Thanks for not unfollowing all you lovely people, maybe your patience will be rewarded… fingers crossed!

Spontaneous splashing.

After a lovely busy day- church, a drink with friends which was followed by a 3rd birthday party in some lovely hot weather inside we decided to make a pit stop before bed time as the 2 younger kids had passed out in the car on the way home and it was 5pm – too late for a nap!

We decided to stop at the moor down in town.  It’s lovely, it’s along the Grand Union Canal and at different times there are horses or cow there.  Yesterday was horses and their foals. The kids loved them. There is also a stream with some grassy flat spots for picnics!

Sometimes, it’s the spontaneous stops that are the most fun! I wish we’d had the camera with us to get some really lovely photo’s! Oh well, we’ll just have to go back and do it again!

Beachtime fun

We spent last week down in Cornwall for a family holiday with my parents! As usual the weather wasn’t on it’s best behaviour but that didn’t stop the kids from loving it!

It’s times like this where I really miss home and living on the coast – in the sunshine! I’ve always loved the beach and the sea and it’s really something I’d love my kids to grow up feeling comfortable and content in… at the moment we live too far away from it to make that happen easily but I’m going to take every single opportunity to do it!

They loved the mussels and anemones, Jenna wanted to eat the mussels for dinner!

Oh dear someone sat down in the rock pool!

Doesn’t it just make you want to go on holiday… I know I wanted to stay on holiday!! Thanks Mom and Brian it was a super time away! We’ll have to do it again… in warmer weather… with no rain!
