Farewell Summer 2013




We'll be into October next week and whilst we still have a hint of warm sun in the air I wanted to write a little bit about what we did this summer.  I didn't manage to post at all during July and August and we did so many fab things, I didn't want this summer to be missing.  So, our adventures included:
  • So many camping weekends (six consecutive weekends), including two 40th birthday weekends, a mini-festival at my friend's parents' farm and a camping weekend at my Uncle's house.
  • Giffords Circus with Ziggy's lovely Godmother Jessie
  • Ziggy learning to swim solo, after Z & E having two weeks of daily lessons.
  • A week's holiday in Cornwall including sailing, rock pooling, watching the red arrows and oohing and ahhhing over Granny and Poppa's seven Labrador puppies.
  • Visiting a beautiful lavender farm in Somerset.
  • Holding a 'celebration of nothing in particular but everything in general' party in a beautiful outdoor location for our Bristol friends.
AND

Our main summer headline - MOVING HOUSE.  This was the year we finally sold our small flat and moved into a proper family house. No shared front door and our own garden.  An end to our student home and a lovely house to fix and paint and make our own.

    1. Thank you and it's quite nice to be planning house decorations and have an indoor project as the weather gets colder.

  3. We spent the summer moving house too....to just outside Bristol (from up North!) so I'm keen to get to know the area and enjoying following your lovely blog. I'd love to know where the orchard you picked your fruit is...? Rachel

    1. Hello Rachel and welcome to the West Country. The orchard is West Bradley Orchards near Glastonbury. It's only open in September but we try and go every year for our apple picking.
