Project 366 Weeks 25 & 26

We’re halfway through the year, how on earth did that happen? It’s been a really busy couple of weeks, with lots going on with the kids. Here’s our fortnight in pictures… Day 171 – Sunday 19th June – the boys came home from their Scout camp. They’re not usually too tired and grumpy when they get home, but they were today! They were also very untidy. Day 172 – Monday 20th June – my...

Dance show 2014

Sunday was our annual dance show – our fourth one! We started when my daughter was a tiny little thing in reception and now she’s a cool 8 year old. In that time the dance school has probably doubled in size too and the show has moved to a bigger theatre. As time management goes, you don’t get much worse than a full-on weekend at Britmums Live, followed by a delayed train then a very long, hot day at the theatre,...
