This week, to take our minds off the boys being away on their 12 day Scout camp, we had a little treat ourselves (OK, it was a big treat!).
Here’s our week in pictures…
Day 206 – Sunday 26th July – coffee at Costa is a Daddy and daughter tradition. They go every Saturday and every Sunday morning and somehow this has been allowed to happen without any arguments by the rest of the family. With the boys away, I got to gatecrash.
Day 207 – Monday 27th July – we went to Amsterdam! Just the three of us!
Day 208 – Tuesday 28th July – a rainy day in Amsterdam. We went cycling and went to Amsterdam Zoo, where you can get really close to the giraffes!
Day 209 – Wednesday 29th July – we went to the Van Gogh Museum, where we saw some stunning paintings and learned a lot about Van Gogh’s life. I loved this lettering that we spotted on the way there.
Day 210 – Thursday 30th July – before setting off for home, my daughter and I went up the Wester Tower. The view of Amsterdam from 42 metres up was incredible!
Day 211 – Friday 31st July – the guinea pigs’ old hutch had pretty much rotted away, so we spent much of the day sorting out a new hutch for them (and we did get a refund on the old one!).
Day 212 – Saturday 1st August – we all did Parkrun today – even Daddy! I was very pleased to be the 10th woman home out of 373 runners and 3rd in my age category. With Daddy’s nagging, my daughter knocked nearly four minutes off her personal best.
