This Weeks Catch Up

Hello friends.

Lovely to see you all.

Saturday gone was the last of seven galas for this year, we didn't win any prizes this time. I have to say that we've had fantastic weather this year compared with last year. Last year was cold and wet.  A set of parents, I'll call M&S, have a lovely big garden and they suggested that we go back to theirs to celebrate. We did a Jacobs join and took whatever we had. What a feast we had. Bbq chicken, burgers, sausages, ribs with salad, coleslaw, bread buns, beers and soft drinks. The children had a wonderful time getting cold in the pool and then running around to get warm. It was a lovely evening of relaxation and fun for the first time after working so hard.

Sunday we went to the Kite Festival at St Annes. Wow! there were some amazing kites. Big ones, long ones, colourful ones, and even dancing ones. We took a picnic with us and ate it on the sand dunes watching the kites. There were four identical kites that were dancing to music. The guys had amazing control and were so synchronised, brilliant. One of the guys also made his kite follow people who went past. He gave the kite a personality and had us in fits of laughter watching. Afterward we had a walk along the pier and further along the promenade. It was a lovely day even though we were tired from the night before.



Now for something completely different. For a few months L has talked about wanting pink hair. So I've been on the look out for the right colour for the right price and she went from this, lovely blonde to this very bright pink. Luckily it washes out after 6-8 washes. But I have a feeling that it will have a pink ting when the summer is over so we might dye it back to her original colour of brown or a darker blond ready for school.. We did this yesterday and each time I look at her I get a bit of a shock as it's so bright and unusual. Next summer she is talking of blue. We'll have to wait and see.

On the decluttering front, I haven't done much this month, but will get back into it soon.

That's my news for now and it was lovely to see you and I hope to see you again real soon. Have a good day

    1. Hi Alison. The kites were. L just loves her hair and the strange looks from her friends because she hasn't told them before meeting. Top mum points-yes

    1. Hi Lena. Yes it's very pink. Luckily it washes out after 6-8 washes but we will have return her hair back to a natural colour for the return to school in September. My parents were not much fun when I was young and I felt I missed out. We wanted to give L the freedom to express herself and have fun whilst she's young but within boundaries knowing that rules still have to be followed. L is more confident than I ever was so I hope we are doing the right thing.

Scamming Season

 Last week I was almost caught by a scammer on email and I thought I would share my experience with you so that you too don't get caught...
