I can't believe the summer holidays have ended. :-(
I'm a supply teacher so one of the lucky ones whose summer holidays are actually all holiday - no sorting a classroom out, no popping in to school to discuss the new term, no planning in advance. I just had 6 and a half weeks of me time.
Great! - You may think - but I've been trying to coordinate a house sale and purchase to be completed by the end of my holidays so we'd be in our gorgeous new house, be unpacked and ready to live properly again in September rather than out of boxes - but it didn't go to plan. But here's the good bits of our summer:
Meeting up with my fab friends
I had some fun meet ups with friends in the holiday - lots of laugh and chat.
Celebrating 3 years with Adam:
This was right at the beginning of the holidays. I came home from a day out to find a lovely bunch of flowers waiting for me.
Celebrating my Birthday:
This was my scrummy birthday cake. I went for a picnic and walk in the park with some friends, then out for dinner with Adam and my family.
Going Owl Hunting in Birmingham:
We managed to spot about 27 owls - there's still over 30 to find though! I made a few trips out to different locations to spot some.
Practising my Photography Skills:
I had a day out by myself to Woburn Abbey where I was able to practise my photography in peace and quiet in their garden and then I've also been practising on Freddie too!
There were lots of opportunities to see my family, which was great.
How was your summer?
