Armed with the list, Sharpies, post it notes and a large sheet of card I set about planning out our Summer.
We didn't manage to tick everything off of our bucket list but in fairness some of my additions were a little ambitious given the time constraints and the kids are quite happy to roll some of the activities over to the upcoming weekends and October half term but here are the highlights of our Summer.
We had AMAZING GCSE results from Mikhayla
I didn't win, but to be fair I didn't lose either! Result
A certain little lady had her feet measured and bought her first ever pair of school shoes ready to start nursery later this month.
We spent a lovely sunny day being tourists in our city. We went on the London Eye, splashed around in the Appearing Rooms water installation just outside the Royal Festival Hall, we watched lots of fab street performers and enjoyed a meal inn Nandos right beside the ITV television studios.
We had a blast on our annual visit to Gray pick your own farm in Wokingham. As always, the kids loved every second of it and we came away with so much fruit and veg we didn't need to shop for them for a little while.
We enjoyed a sunny afternoon on the beach at Thorpe Park after a morning spent on rides.We had a yummy scrummy baking day
Loved our short break to Hastings
Got adventurous at this indoor climbing centre in London
Spent a rainy morning here before the clouds rolled away
He made a new friend at Pontins He tried reaching for the stars
And these two enjoyed 'a bicycle made for two'
They scrap booked their entire Summer and then...
Here's hoping you all had an amazing Summer!
