Where has this week gone?

The summer holiday is sadly whizzing by - I love the holidays and no alarm clock, so am quietly willing the time to pass a little slower. We have finally put up our door number, it's been on the the 'to do' list for a while.

And we are beginning to make headway with the back garden and....

... the bit down along the side of the house.

The next big project is the sitting room, which has not been touched since we moved in a year ago now. It was pretty much the only room we had to live in whilst the builders were in and I want it done for Christmas, so best get started as there is a lot to do.

We have finally got around to sorting all the stuff that had been in storage and was still in boxes, in the front room. Some has been found a home, some has been thrown out and the rest car booted or taken to the charity shop. The plan is then to make this room a temporary sitting room, whilst I get started on the actual sitting room.

I've been sofa looking/dreaming!

And we were up a silly o'clock on Sunday morning for the car boot. The only positive at getting up at 5:30am was this view, as you opened the bedroom shutters.

Our time otherwise has just been pottering around at home. Sophie has been away doing NCS for 2 weeks, so it's just been me and the boys at home. Sam got a waffle maker for his birthday which we've had fun testing out and I can see will be well used. We've nothing big planned for the rest of the holidays - Sophie still has this and next week doing NCS but from home now and of course the dreaded exam results day next week. So we just need to hope for lovely sunshine over the remaining weeks, to enjoy the last few weeks of the summer holidays.
