So there it was, the summer holidays, and now they’re over. Well, almost over except for a bank holiday weekend. I think this year it has gone by quicker than ever and, I probably say this every year, I’m just not ready to go back. I have loved spending all my days with O and he has loved it too. I’m dreading the first nursery run next week as I know he is going to be adamant he doesn’t want to go. I predict a teary drive to work on Tuesday.
This one made me giggle this week as when I was tidying out our old office I found the holiday breakdown I’d written for our girlie holiday to Ibiza when we finished our A-levels. I’m not sure what was more surprising, that I still had it or that you could get a two week holiday in Ibiza for £350!
Fish! Yesterday I went to the Blue Planet Aquarium with O and my friend and her little boy. The boys loved seeing all the fish and the sharks, and I fell a little bit in love with the mini turtle/tortoises (I’m not sure which, off to google the difference).
We did have a lovely time but it cost £50 for the four of us, and that was with one child going free as a very nice lady in the queue behind us gave us a free ticket, we walked round it twice and the boys had a play on the slides and we were out in just over an hour. I’m not sure I’ll be rushing back any time soon.
Lots of thunder and lightning (okay, we didn’t hear the lightning but we did see it). Last Saturday night we had some pretty amazing storms near us and it was quite exciting to watch. O was fascinated and we let him stay up a bit later than he would do normally to see them. After they had passed and we put him to bed he made us promise to wake him up to watch again if they came back.
New socks, I love these ones from Tesco, so bright and colourful, and they had a pair with pineapples on too which are my favourites. Unfortunately I managed to spill bean juice on them so they didn’t make the picture!
On Monday we had no plans so jumped in the car and went for a walk around a little village near us. We go there quite often but to either one of the restaurants or a walk around the dam and it was years since I had just pottered around the place. It really is so pretty and we found the cutest little cafe that was inside a canal boat. O loved it so we will be returning.
This pretty much sums up how I’m feeling this week.
Have a lovely week!
