I missed joining in with Little Loves last week, and what a fortnight it has been. The teen has already enjoyed a full week off school, the whole country has basked in the heatwave and we can finally say hello summer holidays.


I picked this book up the other week in a Charity Shop for the bargain price of 99p. I have not started it yet, but I have read a few of Lucy Diamond’s books and they are always a great read.

Another thing I have read this week is my daughter’s school report. She absolutely loves school and it was a pleasure to read, especially the comment ‘Your manners and behaviour are a terrific example to everyone in the class’. Well done Katie for another excellent school year.


I always feel a little emotional on the last day of term, especially when I watch the year 6 children leaving primary school for the very last time. I can’t believe that this will be my youngest child in just under 12 months.


Lots of family chatter on Wednesday evening. We went out to a local Toby Carvery to celebrate the end of another school year. We chatted about the last year and what the children had achieved, and what we were looking forward to over the summer. All whilst having an extremely delicious carvery.


Ok this wasn’t made by me, but this was the beautiful present my daughter received from her teacher. I am a huge fan of word art and this was such a lovely present. She has been extremely lucky that she has had a wonderful male teacher for both years 4 and 5, and I know she will miss him.


Well it has definitely been the week of wearing summer dresses, sandals, hats and plenty of suntan lotion. The teen even got his legs out on the hottest day of the year.

No filter needed for this picture that I took on ‘Heatwave day’ …. There is something about bright blue sky that just makes us feel so much more happier. Have a great week x
