Can you believe how fast July flew by? I’ve just had a nice half an hour going through all my July posts to write the little round up below and I’ve realised why I love blogging (apart from all you lovely people) – it’s because what I’m making month by month is a lovely collection of memories for my children when they’re older. It’s so nice looking back over the things we’ve done and the things they’ve said and knowing that I have a permanent record of everything to show them when they’re older.
So, here’s July’s round-up of happy family memories:
Miss Frugal has been delighting us with the interesting creations that she has been learning at school in her ‘Fun with Food’ classes at school. We started with Cartwheel Sandwiches(you may know them as Pinwheel Sandiches lol) and graduated to pasta salad before making honey biscuits (mmmm yummy).
We were invited by John Lewis to their fantastic Christmas in Julyevent where I got to meet lots of other lovely bloggers and be wowed by all of the beautiful things that John Lewis had to show us (not forgetting the fantastic Flipcam that we were given).
I learned that I wasn’t the only one who has a bit of a crush on Handy Manny (Pippa– I’m thinking of you here lol) in my post about my almost perfect man, although I still have reservations about his husband potential due to his lack of earnings 😉
My post about how to have a family fun day for under £10.00won me a new camera in The Suns £9.50 holiday challenge but because we were a bit disappointed that the proze wasn’t a trophy of some sort (big and blingy preferably) we decided to make our own.
I entered the world of competitive parenting (a very scary place lol), shared my concerns about how my seven year old decided she would like to learn poledancing after a trip to a friends house and wrote a letter to my wii (among others) to tell it how much I missed it after my husband swapped it for an X Box 360.
My favourite photo of the month is this one:
This is the kids at half past ten the night before we went away for our cheeky little weekend away – they were so excited they got into our bed and waited for us to come to bed.
And on a final note – we also learnt that it was impossible to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and that leprechauns only live in Ireland.
