Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day

Last week, as my Son painted the shed I began the epic task of painting the fence.

Sunday afternoon I finished the fence around the back of the house.

Eighteen fence panels, all painted BLACK!!

I love it, it really shows off the plants. Just got the panels round the front to do . . . . 
(I realise black isn't to everyone's taste, but I love it)

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day

Is it really August? Was it still summer on Saturday?

We had a ride to Morecambe and it felt like we'd moved forward in time, to WINTER!!

Penny enjoyed a brisk walk along the sea front and she met a lovely Cocker Spaniel puppy, just the same colour with just as much energy!!!

But yes it was definitely a coat day.

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day

Boys can multitask!! Yes on Friday my son painted the shed whilst talking non stop.......

So the shed got painted and I learned things I didn't know about YouTube, Xbox games, etc,etc.

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day (Skipton)

We had a drive over to Skipton on Thursday.

A lovely wander down the canal. . . .

Then a look around the shops
(taking it in turns to look after Penny)

And we finished with a cup of tea in Cafe Neros where Penny happily sat under the table.
(Probably dreaming of having her very own Frappe Creme)

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day

Wednesday was an early start, 8:10 dentist appointment!!! Ooh how those children love an early start.....

Followed by a little uniform shopping, what more could they ask for!
Shirts, bags, pencil cases, stationary, shoes......
(And a sneaky book for me)

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day

Tuesdays challenge - keep the boy off technology during the day whilst staying home.

Maybe a bit of woodwork will do the trick.

The power tools always help, he's keen to use the drill but sawing semi wet wood is a job for Mum (so I'm told)

We did finish our new garden planter it just needs filling up. So a successful day.

Summer Holiday - Snap of the Day

Jobs, jobs, jobs......
I hate staying inside doing household jobs when the sun starts to shine.

So on Monday afternoon I dragged persuaded the children and Penny to join me on a trip to the local garden nursery.
Just a few purchases as there's not much in stock at the moment, they are waiting for autumn bulbs.
And NO the children where not allowed to put Penny in the trolley, even though they went on and on about pushing her around!!
