And breathe.....! The pell mell rush to the end of term is over, school fete went well ( it rained on us from 8am till 3pm but people still came) leavers disco, Year 6 production, Infant production, Infant sports day, two birthday parties, two birthday teas, visiting the new secondary school.......all we need now is the sun to return so we can relax and enjoy the hols. The day they imposed a hose pipe ban it started raining and hasn't stopped in the intervening three weeks.
This little rascal is growing fast, has just moved on from open mouth style kisses to squeezed and pursed lips, happily delivering kisses left right and centre. Of course you can never have too many snuggly buggly kisses.
He is sitting on my £2 charity shop find
Random flower shot, wonderful colour and papery petals.
Pre rain I grabbed a few minutes with wine and crochet in the garden, enjoying the table that Mr FK renovated. The top was a bit warped and wonky so he replaced it with an old school bench which, cut in half, was the perfect fit.
So now the summer hols stretch before us, no mad morning rush to find pe kits or a recorder, no school pick up or homework. We are off to Cornwall, near Looe, where I hope we will find some sunshine. Or at least no rain. It's about 25 years since we holidayed in Cornwall, I'm not sure why as it is such a wonderful part of the world and I'm really looking forward to it. I've made miles of bunting to decorate the caravan awning and got the picnic blanket at the ready! Happy summer!
