Anyone who reads this blog regularly won’t be at all surprised to hear that this week was a busy one. At the weekend we went to visit my in-laws, so H got a bit of grandparent time. On Saturday we walked around Ashby-De-La-Zouch trying to spot the pictures on the walls of buildings. They’ve currently got an arts festival on and every year the pictures have a different theme. This time it was ‘Strike Up The Band’. Here’s one of the many pictures I took.
On Sunday we went to a family christening in a very picturesque Leicestershire village. Here’s a picture of the pretty village green, with its grade 2 listed butter cross. It was a beautiful day for the occasion and we had a lovely time catching up with the family.
H has enjoyed some outside play this week. Here’s a pic of him in the playground in the park. Our garden is starting to come together now (we had a little bit more work done on it at half term), so we’ve been out there too. After all that rain last week, it’s been strange to have so much sun this week, but very welcome indeed. He’s been playing in the playground at school every day too and his knees have taken the brunt rather, as shorts provide no protection if he falls.
The school run has been a real joy this week. Walking to school without a coat most days and every day the jumper has been off when he came out of school. The park that we walk through is coming into its summer clothes too. Sadly, though people seem to like to leave their litter behind particularly round the benches. It makes me so cross – there’s really no need for it.
H is having tennis lessons at a local school at the moment and at last it’s the weather to match the sport.
