It’s been two very different weeks for us – one stuck at home doing boring stuff and one on holiday in Padstow, my very favourite place. Although it would have been nice if the weather had been a bit better!
Here’s our fortnight in pictures…
Day 227 – Sunday 16th August – I love this funny photo of my younger son testing out his virtual reality headset. (I’ve just realised our new kitchen cupboards make a brilliant backdrop for photos!)
Day 228 – Monday 17th August – a pretty boring day! My daughter fell off a climbing frame yesterday and hurt her toe, so couldn’t walk very far. We were pretty much stuck in the house, but I went for a quick walk and snapped these beautiful wildflowers. Day 229 – Tuesday 18th August – another day pretty much stuck at home. I did loads of work and the kids tackled making candles. Day 230 – Wednesday 19th August – the weather app said there would be ‘light rain’ from 3pm, instead there was torrential rain from 12pm. This was the view from my window (complete with raindrops on the window!) Day 231 – Thursday 20th August – my younger son went to the barber’s and the whole day started to unravel. He was very unhappy with his haircut and we all knew about it! Day 232 – Friday 21st August – we set off for our holiday in Padstow. The weather was miserable. I think this picture sums it up perfectly! Day 233 – Saturday 22nd August – the day started with torrential rain, before clearing up a bit about lunchtime. Day 234 – Sunday 23rd August – we went for a hike along the South West Coast Path. It was stunning, but we walked A LOT further than we’d intended to! Day 235 – Monday 24th August – another morning starting with torrential rain. We went to the Eden Project for the first time in five years. The boys loved it, but my daughter wasn’t particularly impressed. Day 236 – Tuesday 25th August – no prizes for guessing how the day started today! But the rain stopped and the sun started shining the second we arrived in St Ives for the day. Day 237 – Wednesday 26th August – finally – it was actually sunny all day and we had a proper day at the beach. Yes, that is my eldest in the water in a Tshirt (and no, he didn’t have a dry one to change into!).
Day 238 – Thursday 27th August – we went cycling along the Camel Trail – an essential activity in Padstow! I’ve cheated a bit. Clearly I didn’t take that photo myself, but it was on my camera, so that’s OK, right?
Day 239 – Friday 28th August – we set off for home and called in at Cribbs Causeway to tick off three more Shauns – taking us to 38 out of 70. That’s all we’re going to manage to see.
Day 240 – Saturday 29th August – five people on holiday for a week? That’s a lot of washing!
