A Year in Pictures - Week 27

I am sure that time has been speeded up at the moment or I just keep losing it on a regular basis. As the summer holidays approach the pace of life seems to have reached a crescendo and I haven't done even a small amount of what I was going to do this week - even with the blog. My third Family-Friendly holidays post will have to wait until next week (it's on Glamping in a Yurt if you're curious!)

We had the village Fun Day last weekend which was a fantastic day where we raised lots of money to try and get our allotments by making amazing scarecrows. Since then we have had meet the teachers, two lots of Brownies (don't ask it's complicated) and what feels like numerous other commitments - my head is spinning. And of course with the nice weather less time is spent inside and no blogging gets done, although we are getting to harvest some strawberries. I'm off to find the gin and the hammock - see you next week!
