What I've been doing lately

Well the children have broken up from school and in the last week we have all been to Devon to stay on a lovely farm for a week. We have seen, handled and played with these;

And had fun throwing pots on a potter's wheel.

Painting ceramics

Bouncing on Jumping Pillows.

Swimming in the outdoor pool.

Sliding down death slides

and horse riding.
We had a fab time and have booked to go again next year.

Bits and bobs.

Life has been a bit crazy around here for the last couple of weeks. The extension is well underway and last week I was out of the house for most of the day as the builders were digging up the patio using a huge drill and the house was literally shaking - the noise was totally unbearable so I spent most of my time at the gym and swimming with the obligatory stop for a cup of tea afterwards!

The foundations are now in and the bricklayers start in earnest tomorrow so hopefully we will see things moving along quite quickly now.

We have been and chosen our new kitchen and appliances so it's all systems go in that department too.

In other news I am reading quite a lot at the moment. I have been taking my Kindle with me wherever I go and so am reading constantly. I seem to be whizzing through books!

I have managed to do a little bit of scrapping - here is one of my recent layouts.

I have done a few others but haven't managed to take photos of them but I will do soon.

Let me know what you think.
