It feels like a very long time since I last shared my week with you. I still enjoy following everyone elses’s each Sunday/Monday though! Does that mean I’m naturally nosy? 😉 The kids and I were lucky to be heading back to Celtic Manor near Cardiff, which was a lovely break away from what seems like the never-ending jobs around the house I’ve been doing lately.
#Sunday Sevens is a (usually) weekly roundup of your life in photo form. Head over to its creator Nat’s blog to find out more, or even join in yourself!
When we arrived on Sunday, the monkeys were keen to know which lodge we were staying in this year; last year it was the ‘Fiesty Falcon‘, this year it was, well… see the above 🙂 On Monday night we celebrated my dad’s 74th birthday, what better way to debut my son’s new shirt? (still very proud sorry)
The main hotel had lots of fun activities for the children to join in with. So on Tuesday we signed up for pumpkin carving. Although scooping out the seeds took quite some time, they were delighted with their final pumpkin designs. By Wednesday my new knitting project (just a simple scarf) was growing nicely. The changing colours in this kind of yarn never cease to delight the kid in me.
Still not tired of this beautiful view by Thursday. And just before we left on Friday, the monkeys attempted and conquered Forest Jump. The photo, above right, is my very brave boy on some scarily, high ropes. I was so relieved that my sister-in-law volunteered to go up with him! Instead I tried the junior version with my daughter, which was bad enough, and unlike my children, I by no means conquered it, ending up in some very inelegant positions – no photos sorry!
And I’ll end with this photo of how we found my daughter’s room on Saturday. Clearly she was glad to be home and celebrated with an impromptu toys’ tea party and story reading session.
Hope everyone else had a good week too,
