We **heart** Cons (Cocoa Daisy Sketch)


I didn't realise that it's been over a week since I blogged.
We've had such a busy week, but we are enjoying the kids school break.

I've just manged one LO this week.
I played along with the Cocoa Daisy sketch which you can see on the CD Blog here.

I used the August kit to make this.
(click to enlarge)

The Sketch challenge runs until the 20th August if you want to play along.
You can read up here for more details and we've been chatting and sharing on the MB here.
I scrapped a photo of our feet when we went out for dinner on Hollie's birthday. We all had our Cons on : )

As I was saying before, it's been a busy week.
My sister, her hubby and the youngest stayed for a couple of days, we've had playdates and a party to attend and I've been trying to work as much as poss too.
I'm so tired, but everyone seems happy.
We went for an evening walk one day last week.
We have all my family coming to stay this weekend and we wanted to time how long it takes us to walk up on to the common. The quick way we go we have to cross a road that I don't like.
It's only a 30mile country road, but it's very bendy, cars drive too fast and the visibility to cross is awful and scary. But it takes just 5mins from our house to get up here.
But when there's 11 of us including 5 kids, 1 with a pushchair, I just don't fancy it.
So we went through the houses to time ourselves and it only actually takes 10mins.
And last week we got met by this beautiful sunset.

As we arrived,
I took this without the kids knowing.

On the disused runway.
(this is where they were filing the new Ron Howard movie Rush earlier this year. It looks so peaceful usually)

And a couple of Hollie and me.

Today it's work this morning and meeting up with friends at the park later and tonight we receive a special visitor for a week.
Clue : She has 4 legs and is rather furry : )

I hope your summer is going well.
