Smile.... You're On Holiday!

I sometimes forget how bored teenagers can get and so quickly too!
(Doesn't help they are both missing their boyfriends to be honest either)

But A little girly time seemed to make them smile

After a little beauty time when the weather was pants,

They were happy to disappear to the bar.

Luckily the next day was sunny and we could go swimming and enjoy the warmth.

As for yesterday whilst the weather was a little mixed I took the girls for a little jaunt around the little shops.

And we had some yummy (and huge) food.

Just A Glimmer Of Sunshine....

I could get sooo used to this weather

The sun was shining though the window this morning and it was glorious!

Not even getting up seemed a chore.

And being able to eat breakfast outside is a great way to start the day.

Next doors cat greeted me this morning.

I think he was hoping to be able to catch one of the birds in the tree.

But now its out of my hot stuffy corporate attire and and into something a little cooler.

Roll on the weekend.

So Where've You Been Then?

Thats the question I was asked the other day which seemed to fit my blog perfectly.

Life my dears has just been jam packed, with work, social engagements and other commitments.
So I've not dropped off the face of the earth, (which sounds rather painful if you ask me) the other comment I had!

So what have I been up to?

Well enjoying this glorious sunshine.
It truly is A.... Ma...Zing (as my crazy family  would say)

Even if it is only during my lunch break 
We attended CamperJam and I said a quick hello to the gorgeous Vix.

This should so be my van, just look at the reg?!

I love these.
A request has been put in to the eldest daughter to do one for Andy and I.

Well I love green, so this was a stand out for me.

We have been mega busy with the allotment, harvesting a fabulous crop of strawberries, courgettes, potatoes, peas, mange tout, carrots, lettuce, beetroot to name but a few of the yummy goodies.

Our courgettes are HUGE! 

Yummy cucumbers

Still masses of strawberries

And raspberries too

Whilst the potatoes are doing ok we still have work to do on the bottom of the large allotment

Summer fruits pudding has been yummy with these.
We have even made jam from them too.

Beetroot anyone?

And of course the trusty steed that gets me to the allotment and carries all the goodies back too.

We have had copious amounts of BBQs, well you have to don't you?!

Well no BBQ is complete without Pimms is it?

And even a trip to visit the Midlands Air Ambulance.

The charity we support and so worth while.

So as I said life truly has been incredibly busy.
