Haven't been on here much recently. Life has just seemed a little too busy and I just didn't know what to write on here. Have also been busy working on a fairisle knitting commission recently which took up quite a bit of my time. But that is now finished and I am able to get started on some of my Christmas presents. (The pictures of which will have to be posted later, just in case someone happens to read this, don't want to give away the surprise.)

Hardly a sound - no background traffic noise, no sirens going, just beautiful birdsong, my own footsteps, my own breathing , the dog running. It was beautiful our walk this morning.
(The picture was not from this morning as I forget to take the camera with me but was taken on another early morning walk).

Last weekend we went camping for the first time since having Joshua. We just went for the weekend with my sister and her family and my mum and dad. It was brilliant - all the children got on well. We went to the Forest of Dean - which is not too far from home - to a Forestry Commission campsite.
The first night not much sleep was had but the second night was better . On the Saturday we went for a walk following the sculpture trail through the forest so it kept us fairly cool in the heat. And in the evening had a barbeque enjoyed by all including the dog.
Joshua had tears at the end of the weekend as he didn't want to come home. So it looks as though we shall be camping again - hopefully in the near future.

As of September things are going to change in a big way - Little one is going to start at primary school. We have recently done two school visits where we stayed and played for half an hour. And soon we will have to say goodbye to those at Preschool - both staff and lots of the children. Sometimes thinking about it makes me sad as we have both made lots of friends at preschool. But I know it is just another chapter in our lives and that we all have to move on at some point.

I can't believe yet another week has gone by. The last week the weather has been wonderful and we have spent so much time out in the garden. The garden is beginning to look a lot more cared for.
I have also spent a lot of time recently preparing things for the preschool summer fair, it has been taking up a lot of space in my mind both day and night. I shall be glad when the summer fair has happened. (It is this Saturday). I might be able to get back to doing some of the things I want to - like my knitting!

With the lovely weather on Bank Holiday Monday we decided to go to Glastonbury. After a quick walk around the town we picked up our sandwiches from the car and headed for the Tor. I had forgotten that it is quite a walk for someone with little legs to get to the Tor - we just kept saying we were almost there! And reminding him that once we got to the top we could have our lunch. Also the promise of an ice cream when we got back down to the town worked well.
At the top the views were amazing. It was very clear and you could see out into the Bristol Channel and beyond. I don't think I have been up there with such good views.
Once back down we did as promised and bought the little one his ice cream while Mummy and Daddy treated themselves to a well earned cup of tea and the dog had a long drink of water.

For the last week or so I have been meaning to blog but have just not been able to put the words on here that I wanted.
We didn't get either of our 1st two choices of schools for our youngest. We did get our 3rd choice which is a very good church school but it involves getting to school by car, we had hoped to be able to walk. We have gone on a waiting list at the church school in the town but I don't hold out much hope of getting a place. So mentally I have been going through the thought processes of how to get to school - walking is just not feasible, so I am hoping if the weather isn't too bad we will cycle maybe two days of the week just so we don't use the car too much. Also we will park a little bit away from the school so that we do have a little bit of a walk before and after school.
I can't believe in a few months time my little one will be going to big school. It is all rather frightening and I am not sure how I really feel about it all. I have mixed emotions. It seems like one chapter is coming to an end and another is just about to begin but with lots of uncertainty at the moment. I know deep down that it is just a change in routine and we will work into our new routines and they will become our everyday routine. I am sure over time little one will cope with school just as he has preschool.
Still not sure I am putting this how I want but I have so many thoughts going through my head at the moment. Sorry if you are reading this and hoping to find my usual happy post with some knitting involved - I am still knitting.
