A little break

I will be away from here for two weeks now.

We are off on holiday on Saturday (two weeks in Cornwall) but as today is the last day of the month it seems a good day to do a post and not worry about trying to do one tomorrow when I will be getting the house clean, packing and generally running around like a headless chicken -as you do the day before a holiday.

Nephew and girlfriend arrive tomorrow to cat/house sit for two weeks.   He normally lives in army barracks and she lives with her parents so I think they are looking forward to being able to play house together for a fortnight.  OH has forbidden me from saying ‘it’s just so sweet’ about them within their hearing.   But they are and it is.   She loves cats but isn’t able to have one at home as younger sister is allergic so our two cats are likely to be thoroughly indulged while we are away and probably wont be that keen to see us back.

I promise not to do a post-holiday blog full of holiday photos.

Flo’s school broke up today and at speech day she was one of the prize winners with the Year 3 prize for all round academic excellence and outstanding contribution to school life.

Yes, that is a bit of a proud mummy boast – apologies – but I am really proud of her.  She has coped with a lot over the last year – moving away from the only home, school and village she had ever known and having to settle in a new home, new school, make new friends and to do all that and do so well at school is quite something I feel.

She is  now looking forward to ‘helping’ me pack tomorrow!! I could be on the gin before lunchtime then…

Enjoy the rest of the football if that is your thing, Wimbledon if that is your thing, the weather if it suits and enjoy July – it is going to be here tomorrow anyway so we might as well enjoy it.

See you in just over a fortnight.

    1. That is a lovely thing to say – thank you!

      It was a real moment for me and OH when they announced her name.

      Now I might be tempted to show some holiday photos – just a few really good ones perhaps?! xx
