Back to School 

When the Girl started school, we managed to get a sensible first day picture of her. 

Its been going downhill since then.
This year’s efforts… 

Rolling

Some people call these roller skates. 

I like to call them “an accident waiting to happen”. 

I haven’t roller skated for about 35 years, so I thought I’d give it a go. I’m still not sure why.

A friend lent me her skates. 

It was pretty much a complete disaster! I clung to some railings for about 10 minutes then gave up. 

I thought we had escaped injury at least, but the girl had taken a tumble while I wasn’t looking. 

She is sporting a bruised and scraped tail bone, and a very sore wrist. 

These should come with a health warning! 

Tree Sprites

The holidays are nearly over. 

We’ve spent lots of time away, and have a few things to do next week. 

This week has been about home and pyjama days. 

We did make it out for a walk today. The Littles spent more of their day up trees than on the ground! 

Doubly Wet

Paddling pool, in the rain. Well, why not! 

Erm? 

Saw this in a book shop today – I’m not convinced… 

Mini

Don’t think we’ll be producing Vin du JoBart this year, but at least they’re changing colour. 

Small but perfectly formed (hand for scale!)… 

Cousins 

The three of them had a lovely day… 

Looking at books. 

Snuggling (sort of). 

Plotting (for sure). 

And wheels. Always wheels.

Garden Picnic

And while on a picnic, it’s compulsory to throw crisps in the air and try and catch them in your mouth. 

Moooo-ving

Spotted on our way home. Unfortunately, I think they were moving faster than us… 

Mermaid 

Grandpa made her a mermaid tail. She was so thrilled – it’s the happiest she’s been all holiday (and she’s been pretty happy all week)!
