Happy Days

Picking beans

This summer has been glorious- a slower way of life for us all, al fresco dining when the weather allowed, a week in Spain, good times in the garden growing our own produce (hello runner beans and strawberries galore), inventing games, painting (in the garage with newspaper on the floor of course-I’ve not gone totally insane)…just being happy, basically.

..The boys entranced by our neighbour’s dogs, collecting the first runner beans of the season and fun and giggles in the sun.

We printed the photos of the children with the dogs and Oliver has kept them in his bedside table, so, so sweet.

We’re so lucky to have had lots of quality time together over the season, as a family.

I was still working, as was my husband but everything dropped down a gear, laptops off early, two days off for me in the week, instead of one, and two weeks in total to completely switch off, and it really was one of our most relaxed summers yet.

More dreamy photos-

The boys are at an age where, although they still argue, their bond is becoming stronger and I watched them blossom this season.

I must say, their return back to school and nursery was rather emotional for me, fully marking the end of the summer.

Eating, our favourite pastime, summer or not!

It’s a new stage for us all now- exciting projects have begun for me, more trips away have been plotted and planned as a family, and we’re cherishing our weekends together again.

Alexander informed me on the news that ‘he’s still a baby’ too though. And he’ll always be mine.

Happy days indeed.

We are blessed.
