I took this photo on Saturday, which was a rare sunny day after the horrendous weather we’ve had recently. It may look like Ff and LM are simply traipsing into the wild, because they kind of are, but actually this is in a field about a mile down the valley from our house and I actually have some really exciting news about this patch of overgrown land. Come back later in the week when I can tell you all about it properly!
I know it doesn’t really feel like summer yet but with the kids being off school this week I thought it was the ideal week to revive the Summer Days Linky for this year as I’m sure you’ve been up to plenty of activities to keep the children occupied during the half term break. You can read more about the linky here. This year the fabulous Karen from Stopping at Two has stepped in to co-host alongside me so please stop on over and read about her week too!
But first onto our week.
Lee had the whole weekend off so I took advantage of the weather and him being here to watch the kids while I tried to attack the garden. With all the scratches on my arms it actually looks like the garden attacked me though! I mentioned this time last year about our garden being over run with Japanese knotweed. We couldn’t stretch to the builders doing anything in the end so it was still looking a
lot little a jungle up there.
There’s still a long way to go but it’s certainly a start!
Today, we also took a lovely walk up the mountain opposite our house. There was me, three teens, 3 tweens, an eight year old, a preschooler a toddler and two dogs. It was definitely a gossip filled walk that’s for sure!
We even had a bit of impromptu babywearing from a couple of the teens on the way back down!
It’s been a bit hit and miss with the weather, but we certainly took advantage of the nicer days when we could! I hope you have been too!
So back to the linky, please feel free to link up any type of post. It could be a round up of your week, a picture you want to share, a yummy recipe, fun craft or an activity you’ve tried. Maybe you simply went out for a lovely walk in the sun or spent a bit of time in the garden like we did. Anything you like that makes you think of summer including fashion, beauty, interiors and travel posts.
Of course there are a few simple rules:
- Link up one of your summer related posts from this year.
- Please comment on at least the two posts before yours ~ Remember these linkys only work if we all share the love, the more you give the more you get back!
- You can use the hashtag #SummerDays when you comment to let people know where you came from.
- Please add the badge to the bottom of your post to help spread the word of the linky.
- Have fun! It is summer after all 😀
