I’m so sad to say goodbye to the summer, it’s gone by so quickly in a baby haze. Though the weather has been good this week, there’s a definite early morning chill, the leaves are on the turn, the parks are empty of school-aged children … autumn is here. We’ve been making the most of the last of the sun by taking our painting outside (less mess!).
And we’ve had new play dough to play with too. I hate it when Seren mixes up the colours and going by comments on my Instagram photo, I’m not alone!
We’ve discovered a new park! Oakhill Park in Barnet. It has fun stuff like zip wires and a gem of a cafe with soft play too.
I’m still getting the Lucky Dip Club boxes and sharing the spoils with Seren.
I somehow got two pairs of socks in the July Pet Parade box so we have a pair each.
We’ve celebrated Cher’s 40th, auntie Leanne’s birthday, Katie’s 3rd birthday and daddy’s 40th!
Seren got a 12-hour tummy bug which scuppered some lovely plans with friends. But a lot of bed and sofa snuggle time and Frozen, Tangled and Tinkerbell helped.
We’ve been to Lee Valley Park Farms, Knebworth House and I escaped the children for Afternoon Tea at Ham Yard Hotel.
We went to the Enfield Town Autumn Show. That and Andy’s birthday always marks the end of summer for me. I love the way show emulates a country show with village green type activities and craft, bakery and crafting competitions! Every year I saw I will make something to enter next year then promptly forget. Here’s Seren petting a bunny, riding a pony and some prize veg too.
Finally, we had a fabulous four days in Norfolk last week, more to come on that soon!
