Me and Mine [July 2018]

August 3, 2018 at 5:07 pm Leave a comment

We’re already a quarter of the way through the summer holiday and school term craziness is a distant memory (and a bit of a blur). We managed to book a last minute 4 day break to the Isle of Wight in the first week of the school holiday and it was just what we need. We had blue skies and sunshine the whole time we were there (I couldn’t help packing wellies and coats though ”just in case” even though they’d not seen the light of day for weeks at home). #MeandMineproject July 2018 - nipitinthebud.co.uk
Our ”Me and Mine” family snapshot was taken at the National Trust beach at Brooke Chine at 8 o’clock at night. We love that time in the evening when the beach is quieter and there’s less concern about sunburn. We’re resolved to maintain the practice of being more active after dinner now we’re home as the heat and light of summer evenings produces prolonged, sticky bedtimes anyway so we might as well be outdoors. On that note it’s after 6pm and we’re going to head off to our favourite local park Hillfield Gardens with boys, bike and scooter. Enjoy a few of our beach snaps before I go and I’ll catch up with you again next month.

Euan’s been enjoying the opportunity to use my camera and I think he did a terrific job of capturing the three of us outside our lovely Airbnb cabin in Brighstone.

I love the #MeandMineproject for the prompt it gives to capture family time each month and the throw backs to previous years. Do you think we’ve changed all that much since last year’s Isle of Wight trip?

Cheery uppy post sent with love is always good but especially heartwarming when you know someone has sat down with a pen and paper and given minutes of their time to create something for you
I've always quite liked the "family rules" meme boards but never found one that didn't elicit a "yes, yes, nooooo" from me when I read the list of rules. I was in the right place at the right time today when I saw this one and offered it a home with us.
Tea for three. We're eating cashews and wowing at how they are grown and shelled. Worth a Google if you've never really thought about it!
Regrann from @elluminations - . @musicalgeorgemoorey has released the next Spaces track Illuminations (or should that read Elluminations?!) based on the story of a 9th century monk and his cat Pangur Ban (a favourite childhood tale of mine). Here's the original artwork I made in response to the track. Greetings cards available in my etsy shop! #spacesgloucester #pangurban #monk #blackfriars #originalart #artistsofinstagram #etsy #etsysellersofglos - #regrann
Regrann from @musicalgeorgemoorey. Me - piano. On Monday I'm releasing "Illuminations" - a song based on the story of Pangur Ban, a 9th century monk's cat - recorded @GlosBlackfriars. #spacesgloucester #lookcloserlistendeeper
The labyrinth at @gloucestercathedral
Regrann from @musicalgeorgemoorey - Stunning.
We visited @gloucestercathedral today and happened across the @workofheartgarden (click link to find out more). Claire created the garden after losing her husband Ken. You can download the pattern for a heart to donate and raise funds for @suerydercharity. We made a donation to buy two for the boys to hang while thinking of a loved one. Claire's had over 50k hearts sent to her - that's the power of love for you
This may be the best board game ever invented if you like the silliness of Dr Seuss stories! (Horton hears a who game!)
Luca in his happy place @sandfordparkslido - he just doesn't stop smiling when he's there and sings non-stop in the water. He is so super confident because even at just 2 years old he can stand unaided in the kids pool. So all we have to do is Bob about next to him pretending we're at a spa, perfect :0)
The Hawaiian goose whisperer @musicalgeorgemoorey (or as he said "not really, I've got a bag of seed") at @wwtslimbridge
Euan found treasure in the playground at @wwtslimbridge. Thank you Hannah , he loved rehiding them and secretly watching other children find them. #wwtslimbridge #gloucesterlife #loveontherocksuk
