What an amazing month was June? I am not one to enjoy the sunshine but our county was one of the driest in england with barely any rainfall, so much so that the grass is yellow from how dry it is, Nothing honestly happened during the month of June, a lot of sunshine, a lot of beautiful flowers and plenty of cute little fledglings, we did go for a walk to the town park and found some huge pine cones which we are going back to get at some point for some autumn and Christmas craft ideas that I have, Yes I did just utter the C word in a post about June!!
World Cup fever is also in full bloom with lots of St George’ flags flying at local pubs.
June was a good month for me, I had a goal to make sure my third year blogging would be a good one and it is so far, I have made new friends and got in touch with old ones, worked really hard on talking to brands and I am now 100% addicted to Instagram now that I am working on sort of a theme and trying to be a bit more creative with that..
June was a good month 🙂
This linky was created by the beautiful Caitylis and you can find her post here if you want to join in.
July will be full of wonderful photos from our travels as we are off to Birmingham to visit my lovely baby group ladies and we are off to Weymouth for the weekend to meet the amazing Becca from My Girls and Me and her family which I cannot wait for, While I am excited the hayfever season is almost over and we are now two months from autumn, I really have enjoyed this summer..
Despite the heat of course.
I know I know, I missed last weeks…. and I think the week before? This heat has really made me not want to blog much and all I wanted to do was sit and sweat and of course complain about the weather!
But today is the first of July, summer is slowly moving on and my countdown to autumn is getting shorter.
One of the blessings of summer however is the plants, insects and clear skies! These two just show that, bees as it turns out are extremely hard to photograph (they just won’t sit still) and the moon has been looking amazing too so naturally I had to use my Nikon coolpix to its advantage and get that super zoom on!
Going into a new month with such a positive outlook on life, expect plenty more photos and of course the monthly ‘sightings’ linky which should be up mid of next week!
Happy July everyone!
Another week has gone by, another photograph Sunday for me to share and it’s just more flowers of course, these beautiful fox gloves are in a neighbours garden and have been utterly covered with fuzzy bumblebees all week!
When we finally move and I get to have a garden it will be full of bee friendly plants and of course lots of wind chimes and bird feeders.
It’s really been a long and warm week, with the pollen count really high I am so ready for autumn now, my poor eyes are just so fed up and I’m so surprised as to how high it’s been.
Oh well.. here’s to another week!
This weeks photo has to be the one I took last week of the fog from the beach at Great Yarmouth, we went out to Norwich and I thought it would be perfect to head to the beach to end the day but unfortunately the whole world was covered in this blanket of sea mist.
The sea is out there somewhere…
We walked a little by along the sea front in search of something to drink for the journey home to only find everything closed and the beach almost deserted!
There’s something so magical about fog and mist, however it made the whole town feel dirty and broken down but I think the lack of people made it that more enjoyable.
Until next time
This weeks photo just makes me smile, three children, two of which are playing Minecraft and one who is joining in with a dead controller.
I am always cautious about them playing the Xbox, or even when Kai uses is tablet because i don’t want them to become one of those kids who spend more time with a gadget than with us or reading a book, but for a few hours at the weekend and sometimes at the end of the school day if they’ve been good I will allow them to sit down and build things together, and it’s been wonderful seeing them learn hand eye coordination, cooperation with their builds and the laughter they’ve been sharing as they do stupid things together.
I was always worried they’d never get along, that they’d argue or hate each other but here they all are, sat on the rug playing a game and chatting, laughing and having fun.
