The summer holidays are over

I am painfully aware that I have not "blogged" for quite some time. It has been pointed out to me on numerous occasions and the question has been asked "will you ever blog again?" In an attempt to re-cap the entire summer holidays, I have chosen to do so in pictures... a cop out I know but...so many things happened over the holidays. But there were equally as many days where nothing happened of any significance at all...


OK, so here we go...


I spent an absolute fortune on school uniforms so everybody had clean, fitting and smart clothes to wear in September. Believe me, it is not easy trying to make sure that four children are fully equipped for school on such a tight budget...  
Katies new uniform and coat





During some of the cloudy and miserable days that make our typically British summer, Sam and I spent a boring morning watching the television...... then I drew all over his tummy....just for fun :)



Charlie helped himself to his "Cat Munch"


On the sunny days, the washing blew dry....


Sam was continually hungry and pretty much lived at the fridge door...



Other games were played, this one was, make a picture using the sticky shapes and then explain...
It was hilarious.... :)


Jim pretty much lived at the computer...


We made plasticine cats, burgers, snails, teddies, houses, flowers and cups..


Lots of biscuits were made and then consumed...


Many a cheesecake was made and also consumed...



We actually did have a good holiday. We went to the cinema at least four times, we went bowling, we ate McDonald's at least four times, we ate cake, we played piggy in the middle, we slept, we argued, we watched TV, we laughed, we cried laughing, we slept downstairs, we picked berries, we picked apples, we read, we played games, we played cards, we watched films, we made jam, we tidied the garden, we enjoyed each other company, we nearly killed each other, we slept in, I blogged  didn't find time to blog, but we did have fun.....
