And so we wave goodbye to a very busy August and say hello to September and the beginning of another school year. Hello routine, hello theoretically tidier house! A girl can dream… I am definitely looking forward to
We’ve had fun indoors and out, in Bristol and the surrounding areas. It’s been a busy old month, but I suppose the school holidays are always that way! I made sure to build plenty of lazy days into our schedule as sometimes you just need to slouch on the sofa and share a packet of biscuits while you finally–finally!–watch the final episodes of the Sarah Jane Adventures!
Lucas and I hopped on a train and joined Dave for a week in London. While he worked, we roamed the city and it was awesome. We click-clacked our way round the capital on the Underground, splashed down the Thames on a very touristy river boat–never again, get a Thames Clipper instead–and walked for miles and miles. I have loads to blog about still!
Cornwall was fantastic. Lazy days full of relaxation–a tad enforced due to four days of torrential rain–with a few trips thrown in and plenty of good food and wine. The lovely people who own our holiday cottage left us a gorgeous cream tea and a bottle of wine in the fridge, awaiting our arrival, most civilised. This has led me to the realisation that my usual wine glass is almost as big as Big Carl…the glasses at the cottage were very small (um, possibly just normal) indeed! (I miss Cougar Town.) With all the relaxing I managed to read almost everything on my iPad. I had to download an extra couple of books as I was worried about running out!!
We’ve spent the very end of the month racing around Bristol, trying and succeeding (!) to complete the Shaun in the City trail. We hadn’t gone sheep hunting for weeks and found ourselves with rather a lot to track down and very little time! 45 Shauns in two days. We finished at lunchtime today after Dave planned a route and whisked us around the city. It’s all been a bit of a blur, apart from the rain. We’re all very definite about the rain… I’m exhausted and my ankle is letting me know exactly how unhappy it is with me but I’m very, very pleased we found them all!
