Here comes August!

And so here we are, two weeks or so into the kids summer holidays- I hope you fellow parents are coping ok!

What have we done so far? Well, at the end of term the school had their summer fete, and as I had been promising myself for ages, I finally shelled out some dollars for a decent popup gazebo and weights, for single day events. It fits in the car (just about with the stock) and is literally up in minutes- with the weights just clamping together in halves. Fantastic!

We actualy had to utilise it the minute it arrived- the sun baked down for almost the whole of July, so it became a pretty handy shelter in the garden- we even sat in its shade to watch the Wimbledon final on iplayer! Fantastic!

Anyway, it is first and foremost a stall, so I popped it up to give it a try minus stock on the patio- here it is:


So yeah, its first proper outing has been the School summer fete- we used it with an extra table at this one, as I took far too much stuff with us!

Around this week we also got a new swimming pool  (thanks Dave!), and Jessie took part in sports day.

I also helped out at the school disco- this time mainly on the hot dog stall!

First week off school we spent a lot of time in the garden, and taking full advantage of Orange Wednesdays two for one, I took Jessie to see Monsters University.

Jessie has been keeping a holiday book, but I will save that for another time!

This week we have so far signed up for the Library book challenge, and had a day out at caernarfon castle- I will save that for my next weeks post also!

And I have just realised I should really post something Vagabonds related on the other blog- so I shall do that now!

cheers for stopping by!


The layout on this post has ended up a massive jumble, but hey ho- better than loads of scrolling!
