Biggest boy's tenth birthday (complete with a dubiously iced Eddie Stobart lorry cake)
Quad biking for the bigger boys, plus a couple of friends as a birthday treat
Some happy card crafting....I had quite forgotten how much I enjoyed quilling
Trip to a park with friends
Beach combing with littlest boy, while Daddy (Mowgli), biggest and middle boys went away for three days on cub camp
Littlest boy achieving his five metre swimming badge....surely the greatest achievement, realising that you don't need a float, just get your head in, kick your legs and go for it....next, the Olympics.
(I have to admit my eyes welled up as I think he even suprised himself)
I have got two more books under my belt The Last Summer, Judith Kinghorn and The Moorland Cottage Elizabeth Gaskell and a new crochet project, but that will come in tomorrow's YOP update.
