This morning we went down the lakes ,taking the tennis raquets & balls with us.This was to save losing all the balls over our hedges or smashing our neighbours new conservatory windows! I got some photos of the girls which I'm really pleased with (shame about the parched brown grass!)
This weekend we are off to the Bowkis Family bash ,the girls are really looking forward to meeting Suki :)
No more scrapping done, though I have finally tried out my lovely pink Bind It All and made asmall mini book :) (Which still needs photos !)

Just trying to remember what we've been doing the last two weeks...!
Last weekend Holly and I put together the small green house that we'd bought her,I'm quite surprised at how sturdy it is! She has been busying herself planting sunflower seeds :)
Last week I finally did a layout :) The orange piece of paper lifts up and there's some journalling underneath, about some of the stuff Holly has been going through recently.It tucks under the big photo corner to keep it in place :) I used the lovely new Walk In The Park papers by Echo Park,which I got from 3 Jolly Scrappers :)I bought the collection pack, so I have loads more to play with still...watch this space :)
Last week Holly has her sports day at school.No photo taking allowed though :( We also had a bit of a 'surprise' in her school report ,as it stated how much she'd enjoyed her school residential trip..erm, hardly, we were delayed in Florida and she missed it!We now have a new report...
Well it must have been a pretty boring two weeks as I can't think of anything else we've done!
This weekend I've been suffering from the 'want to go back to Florida' blues :( It's not going to happen for a few years yet so I need to get over it! I think it was brought on by buying some bargain scrapping Disney stuff this weekend (mainly for Holly )!So I may just have to use some of it myself :)

We are still enjoying a bit of a heatwave here, though to be honest ,last week was far too hot and sticky for my liking! Today and yesterday have been much more bearable though ,with lots of breeze :)
Yesterday was another day for sitting in the sun as we went to watch Holly take part in the Herts Folk Dance festival at Hatfield House. Needless to say, I have now have some annoying suntan stripes over my shoulders! It was a lovely day even if it was very hot! And I feel very left out that I am the only one without a fancy picnic bag so I'm hoping to remedy that this week!
This week is open evening at Holly's school, as well as meeting her new teacher.Anything will be an improvement on this years...though I can't believe another school year is almost over.It's two years since Em left junior school and two years till Holly leaves- scary thought!
Today I finally caught up and tackled the ironing mountain that has been growing in the kitchen since the weather turned really hot.I have been doing it on 'when iit's neded 'basis' recently!I also did a bit of tidyng up in the garden ,whilst Holly played 'London's Burning' in her tent,on the recorder :)The girls were going to have a picnic lunch in there too,but then Holly twisted her ankle and they ended up staying indoors!The old Princess tent has been very handy recently as there is very little shade in our garden until later in the day :)
