As soon as the girls were back last week we were in the usual whirlwind of activity, friends beer festivals, work, a fabulous day out to Mottisfont with the National Trust (they have a great Quentin Blakes kids trail on at the moment which I highly recommend), shopping and very very sadly losing favourite teddies. Anyways it's still summer hols so I don't have time to chat so on with the pictures...

|When they have had a spare moment the girls have been inspired by the change4life 10 minute shake up campaign and this was Olaf's summer dance apparently!|
|I loved this bench at Mottisfont in one of the play areas, a quiet spot for contemplation|

|The enticing gate into the enormous walled garden at Mottisfont - need to go back as I didn't have time to explore properly.|
|I know I have done a separate blog post on this but I had to put this in again as it has made us all very sad this week as we have lost Spencer - I know he is only a soft toy but he was very special so just in case you see him please let us know - he was lost in Southampton on Wednesday 20th August - his story is here.|
