Life lately

I have no idea how we are almost half way through August already. This year seems to be rapidly speeding up and it will be autumn soon before we know it. Oh, how I want things to slow down! Parenting a 2 year old brings true meaning to the phrase 'the days are long but the years are short'. Every time I look at her, I'm sure she has grown or changed yet again. I can't keep up. Stop growing so quickly, Missy!

We've been keeping busy, the good kind of busy though. Filling our days with birthday parties, days out, little trips away, afternoons at the park, country fairs, those sort of things! It means I barely have time to catch up on things, or even to work.... but these memories, as small as they might be, are so important.

These photos were taken a few weeks ago when we popped over to Thornbridge Hall for their NGS open garden day. Thornbridge Hall is home to the Thornbridge brewery and if you're local then you'll already know how good their beer is (it's blummin' amazing!).
We'd been to a festival the day before so this peaceful day out was a nice contrast. Miss E insisted on wearing fairy wings. Elsie plodded around. Ice cream and cream teas were consumed. It was such a nice family day out!
