Weekend with (some) Gees

One of the things that has spelt success for this summer holiday is not going anywhere. Luckily, not ever everyone in my family is quite so rigid. Rachel came down with Adam and Rosie and we had lots of fun! Tweens are a good reason to re-acquaint with Brighton pier, Groomsbridge Place, and a tonne of summer fair junk food. 

It was also teddy's birthday.

Perhaps a sign of too much of a good thing -- look what they chose for snacks on the last morning:

Gratitude Tuesday: Virgin Active

All through the school holidays I've been making extensive use of Virgin Active. For a parent like me that shudders in horror at the thought of 13 hours of unstructured time with zero me-time, having a two hour block in the morning for exercise and e-mail is perfect. 

I can then manage to be reasonably "present" for a picnic and playtime in the woods. They don't mind the phone coming out when the purpose is taking their picture. Today, mostly monkeys in trees.

I'm Back & Baking

We've missed having a log of life, so I'm back. Not a lot has changed.
