13th – We spent the day at Nanny’s working in the garden and the girls had great fun playing with the sprinkler we put on to stop the new grass from dying.
14th – Another hot day in Nanny’s garden but thankfully she has lots of trees so I’m able to work in the shade all day 🙂
15th – I treated myself to this weeks Amateur Gardening magazine and before I had chance to even open it, I dropped in it a puddle of water. It’s really not easy reading a sopping wet magazine but I persevered!
16th – Ella got her first badge from Rainbows. It was for completing the Royal Baby Challenge and she loved sewing it on herself (with a little help from me!). She was disappointed however when I had to tell her that when the rainbows leaders said the royal baby was coming soon, it didn’t mean Kate and William would be bring the baby to rainbows to visit them, it just meant that the royal baby would soon be born!
17th – An exciting development in Nanny’s garden is the addition of a summer house that she’s bought for the girls for their birthdays at the beginning of August but shhh, don’t tell them yet because it’s a secret!
Ant’s busy right now painting it light blue and cream. He’s creating a grass area all round it, the seed he put down the other day is already starting to grow and he’s also creating a circular shaped flower bed for them to plant their own flowers 🙂
18th – I’m nearly done with the first part of the path. The wavy middle bit was easier than I thought and I’m quite pleased with the bends!
19th – I went to watch Ella’s assembly today so I could see her collect her S.E.A.L. (Social & Emotional Aspects of Learning) award.
I have to say I’ve never been to a school assembly where the children sang Abba songs as the opening songs! It was brilliant 😀
