Well this week has contained a little of everything.....and thankfully, we are all just about still functioning.
With the school summer holidays starting next week, we certainly have decided that sprinting to the finish line is the best way.
We've had a wedding......in which I was playing as part of a small ensemble......I also raided the garden beforehand for suitable flowers, getting drenched in the process. Once these hydrangeas were all picked, I hunted around to find someway to transport all the huge wet blooms to the church......eventually I ended up emptying my ironing basket and using that...........never has an ironing blanket looked so wonderful!
We've had middle boy's Leavers Concert, The Jungle Book, which he was playing King Louie and singing 'Now I'm the king of the jungle'...........just brilliant! Many tissues needed!
We've had biggest boy's deadline for his cub badges, there has been DIY-ing, painting, writing, collecting, swimming.......
I've been at Pencil Case Nerve Centre sewing the boys' designs for their teacher presents.
(I must admit, I ended up winging this, as each time I started to read a tutorial, my mind was elsewhere and I found it incredibly hard to decipher)
The cases I think are a real success....even lined too.....I hasten to add in gingham so I could follow the lines!
Somewhere in the middle of the week, was our 13th wedding anniversary, but I'm afraid it got lost in all the other activities.
Today is the last day of school for little and middle until September, which will help ease the pressure....I also have a handful of puddings to do for a family get-to-gether tomorrow.......I'm thinking cheesecake, bakewell and a summer pudding.....nothing beats a summer pudding....lets hope it brings out the sunshine.
Well.....I am pushing my luck sitting here, when there are boys to be chivvied, breakfasts to be made, faces to be cleaned......x
