The holidays are here…
…no, not Christmas (although it’s creeping up quickly).
It’s half term. No school for a week.
Remember how I scheduled the Summer holidays? Well, it was so successful, I did it again.
So far, we have…
Been to see the Queen:
Took a walk (wrapped up, it’s getting a little chilly round these parts):
Spent the day baking:
(Yes, they are gingerbread houses, you aren’t seeing things. All will be explained)
There are spooky biscuits still to be cut out, the dough is chilling currently in the fridge. There’s a party for the Kids in the village tomorrow and I’m supervising biscuit decorating.
Yet to do…
Visit a reconstructed Victorian town:
(Not sure there’d have been plastic life buoys around then!)
The Kid’s love this place. So much so I went against my unwritten rule of never paying a subscription for services not rendered and purchased a yearly pass.
The week ends with a bang. A big bang. It’s bonfire night:
It won’t be a home-made one this year. We’re going to attend a locally organized one instead. Less stress!
How are the holidays going for you?
