Me and Mine (July 2018)

Tuesday, July 31, 2018


July was a month full of adventures for us. We started it with a family trip strawberry picking at Scaddows farm. I had never been fruit picking before so it was one of my requests for the Summer and we all had so much fun picking and then eating the strawberries!

Gracie started her new school at the beginning of July so we have been walking lots to and from the school on the school runs. We have also been involved in quite a few school activities already too. We went to watch her compete in sports day with her house team. We also went along to enterprise day where every class made something to sell or came up with a fun idea to raise money to go towards lots of new and exciting things for the school. Gracie's class made their own flavoured popcorn which we had to buy lots of as she was so pleased with herself.

We went on a family shopping trip to Fosse Park in Leicester as part of a campaign which was really fun. I had to choose some summer outfits for myself and have my picture taken by a GIF machine. Thankfully the kids quite like shopping so I got some nice new clothes and we all got to have a browse around the shops and a bite to eat.

We also spent a day at Tutbury castle which is now quite local to us and a place Sam had wanted to take us. It was a lovely sunny day and the castle had free entry that particular day so we had a lovely low cost family day out costing us just the price of yummy ice cream. This months photo was a quick selfie we took whilst sat on the castle walls admiring the views around us. The sun was in our eyes so there are a lot of squinty faces but it is a nice photo to remind us of a lovely day out.

We are now into the school summer holidays and we are looking forward to an action-packed August full of sun and adventures.
