It's holiday time!
I am finally feeling better which is a good job as I had a lot to do today. I have been cleaning, watering the garden and starting to pack. I took Morten to my sister's house. I bathed him so he will be lovely and soft for all the cuddles he gets when he stays with them! I took them some bright yellow flowers as a thank you.

While I was shopping I saw this packet of Frosties. I love it! I think this is what they looked like when I was little.

I watered the garden really well. The French beans are growing so fast.

We are going to east Yorkshire for a few days and despite the recent heat wave, I am packing my raincoat as well as my sunglasses. You just never know!

This weekend has been a bit of a blur. It has been boiling hot, both the weather and my temperature. I have slept most of the days away and the children have been really good and played outside with my husband.

Hopefully I am on the mend now. I was well enough to watch The Killing last night ;)

Here are some pictures from the last few days (when I was awake).

Too Hot

Last night I was awake with a temperature. I still don't feel too good today and the baking heat isn't helping. The children looked lovely in their red, white and blue and I managed to take a few pictures this morning before taking them to school.

I didn't do much at all today. I slept a little but felt restless and had a headache.
Poor Morten was miserable in the heat today and hid under the sofa when my husband tried to take him out for a walk!

Nearly There...

My children (and me) break up from school tomorrow. Yippee!
Because it is the last day before the Jubilee, they are wearing red, white and blue and having cakes to celebrate. Maisy and Soren have their clothes out ready!

I have been gardening again and have worn myself out. To relax I have come to bed early and it is bliss! I love a good, early night....I must be getting old! The sky is really pretty as I look out of my bedroom window. I think it will be another hot day tomorrow.

Heat at last

Yes, Summer has arrived!
It was even a bit warm for Morten today and he kept coming back inside to the coolness of our kitchen.
I am keen to add more to the garden but have too much to do this week. So far I have finished another biscuit postcard and begun to paint the scenery for the school production.

There are not enough hours in the day and I don't have the energy to do all I want! Oh well, I will try to be more efficient tomorrow...

Today Maisy went on a course where she learned all about the printing technique Collagraphy. I think what she has produced is so beautiful! I am very proud of her. In other news, Morten was sick which made Soren sick. Horrid night spent cleaning!

(All poorly animals and humans are better now).

Today I have lots of goodies!

This morning I went out to H&M with my mum and she bought us some lovely things for Summer (if it ever arrives!). I really love the lilac theme of Maisy's clothes. Pretty!

I also took my trip to Ikea. I bought some new cushions (can you spot Morten walking across the fabric as I tried to photograph it?). I also thought I would try some solar powered lights for the garden. They are charging for a day so I'll let you know if they work.

I got my tea lights too so we are having a cozy night with candles and more of 'The Killing'! (Episode 7)
