Last Day Of Summer 2013

Saturday 31 August 2013
Looking back on the last few months...

As the leaves start to change and the blackberry and apple picking starts, we have to wave goodbye to those Summer days. In the last week the nights have drawn in and by 9pm the sky is dark and the air has a slight chill.

So before we start planning our Autumn / Winter wardrobe, begin to think of Autumn birthdays and Christmas-time, here is a look back at Summer 2013.

This Summer we had a few parties, get togethers and time with our families and friends. After celebrating my Mum's birthday on a very hot day in June, we went to Gloucestershire to celebrate my Mother-in-laws birthday and a farewell party to the farm which they have worked for over 40 years.

Little L crafted a banner to put over one of the farm buildings and we celebrated with gorgeous home-made cakes, local produce and the Wimbledon final.

It will be sad that Little L and her cousin Littler J won't be able to play in the woods and chase around the perfectly kept lawns when they grow up but onwards and upwards and I am sure more pleasures and precious family moments are around the corner.

When the Tour De France was on, we had one of my favourite get togethers of the Summer and celebrated all things French . Our French foodie evening

A Lancashire celebration with bowls
In August we celebrated another milestone with Crown Green Bowls after a lovely lunch. Have to say the appeal of the bowls was too much for my Little L but she slept all the way home on the two hour journey.

My blogging highlight from the Summer have to be -

 Making Biscuits
oh the fun!

Crafting Fathers Day Cards for the first time. Very special.
