Summer Bucket List

May 30, 2013


So half term has been a bit of a wash out. Three days of rain has meant planning fun activities for the kids is really hard and they are definitely getting bored. It’s so much easier when the weather is nice. The girls seem so much happier pottering around the garden and sleep so much better for all the fresh air and exercise.

I know once Summer is finally here it will take us all by surprise so I’m trying to plan a few activities for the warmer weather now while I get chance.
