So Summer 2013 is almost over, we’re in September which is like the last month of Summer (and for some, summer is technically already over as schools are back in this week!). Its been a lovely summer really, thankfully, the weather has been great, most of the time, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed our first summer in North Wales! Been to lots of lovelyplaces and hopefully, we’ll still do a little more before the end of the year!
So I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like primarily because I’ve been busy with a number of projects here and there plus office work is getting pretty hectic! Most times when I get home I don’t want to see another screen! But anyway, enough with the excuses (as usual!), I’ll just get on with it!
So a couple of weeks ago when we still had the glorious sunshine (as I am writing this, we haven’t had much sunshine for about a week – is summer over?) we thought it would be a great idea to take Anjie to the beach. It turns out we are we have a number of beaches not to far from us, about 30 mins to an hour to get to a couple of them. So off we went to on a nice Saturday afternoon…
On Wednesday we went to the zoo! Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo to be precise! it’s in Malton, North Yorkshire and a lot closer than I thought being just over an hour. Anjie, Grandma, Hubby and I got in the car in the morning and arrived to spend what was left of the British summer. Had a lovely time, even though the little missy slept through most of the outing Continue reading →
So Anjie turns 8 months today… I’ve been quite busy with work and I have a backlog of things to write about like work and Anjie’s family fun day at the nursery. But in the mean time figured I’ll drop … Continue reading →
Okay, maybe I’m being a little over dramatic here, but hey, I did survive! Considering the fact that I thought I won’t cope, I feel very proud of the fact that I made it through my first week without shedding a tear! My little girl went to the nursery on Monday and spent the whole day there all by herself and she was just fine without me… The rest of the week was with Grandma.
My little baby is 6 months today!! My goodness where has time gone… I’m just so thankful to God for how far we’ve come! I know we’ve had it pretty easy with this girl, all things considered! She is an absolute darling most days! Yes, she gets cranky every now and then, we’re still trying to get the hang of weaning and she’s still not sleeping through but most times she’s really only up about 2-3 times between 7pm-8am so not all bad… :). I’m sure I’ll be singing a different tune about sleeping through when I get back to work in August but till then, I’m just going to enjoy what time I have left!
So what have we achieved now that we’re 6 months old? Crawling and Teething that’s what!
So this past week saw the ‘end’ of the lovely summery weather we had been having; I have to say it was really sad to see it go! It doesn’t help that this weekend is the Jubilee weekend with a double bank holiday on Monday and Tuesday (doesn’t make much of a difference to me though!)! Would have been nice to go to the park as a family and just spend sometime outdoor. Oh well maybe the sun might still come out a bit…
So this week we had unbelievably good weather here! I’m talking 22-24 degrees! After all the wet days it was pretty much heaven sent! So not wanting to miss out, Anjie and I went to the park and had a lovely time! But just when I was thinking of putting her on the swing for the first time she fell asleep! Lol… Oh well next time!
Here’s some pictures we took… The last one is my personal favourite
