June has been a really busy month for us, with a camping trip over half term, a wedding anniversary, Father’s Day, Blogtacular, and Ava’s Sports Day. With only a few weeks left at school, I am frantically trying to fit in as much work as I can, so I can have the six weeks off with the the girls.
I’ve wanted them for ages, and finally the Asher Flamingo Vans are mine. The only problem is I can barely wear them as I don’t want them to get ruined in this awful incessant rain.
Scandia by Zeena Shah
I recently rediscovered my 6th Form yearbook, and the caption by my name is something along the lines of ‘Never happier than when she has a fistful of colouring pencils.’ I did Art, Geography, and English Literature A-Levels, so I did a LOT of colouring in! One of my best friends got me a signed copy of this beautiful adult colouring book, by the delightful Zeena Shah. I treated myself to some new colouring pencils, and just need to find the time to get stuck in now.
Half Term Camping
We spent the coldest week that I can remember on the Suffolk coast, in my dad’s camper van (or the Gampavan, as Thea christened it).
They were so excited about their bunkbeds, but did go to sleep…. eventually, after a ‘goodnight handshake’.
We had a great time overall, but the weather was absolutely dreadful, and that did spoil it a bit for me, I must admit. We stayed at Haw Wood Farm campsite, and it was brilliant – I’ll review it properly soon but if you’re looking for somewhere to stay with great facilities for kids, near lovely coastal towns, it’s a great place to go. We spent a lot of time on the beach at Southwold and Walberswick, and finally got a sunny day on the last day.
