Day 1 and 2

Hello everyone! We've been away on a jolly holiday to Spain. I am behind with reading everyone's blogs and there is plenty to be done here at home too. However, I am hoping to now start blogging each day of the school holidays, even if it's just a single photo of something which captures some part of our day. I think today's photo maybe a pile of the washing that needs to be done!

So it's back to the beginning of last week. T had a friend stay over on Sunday night and so he was occupied for most of Monday too whilst they played on the x-box and generally just bodged about together. S played outside with G and then went to play at a new friend's house for a while. 

It was splendid being able to sit outside and enjoy some sun.

On Tuesday there was last minute holiday shopping to be done and then it was home for a water fight. Very sensibly I chose to stay indoors and watch.

Here is S reloading

T and S discussing their strategy for getting G who was hiding round the other side of this wall

And then it was just blast and run!

Day 3 was the day we flew to Spain. Our flight was from Bournemouth, but not until early evening so we managed to squeeze in a quick trip to a car boot in the morning. That's for the next post, meanwhile I'm off to reload the washing machine.


  1. The last photo reminds me of the film Public Enemies that I watched yesterday!

  2. Lovely! I hope you enjoyed your holiday, looking forward to catching the post a day - hope I can keep up!! ;)

  3. Fab photos of the kids with the water pistols! Hope you're not too bogged down with the washing and ironing - it can be a drag coming home to be faced with it all!

  4. Ahhh happy days when the sun shines! lol My girls had a few water fights last week one with their daddy and our next door neighbours. I chose to stay out of it too. I don't do getting wet clothes! ( I know misery)

    Sounds Like you are all having a lovely summer break.
