Apart from saving a post for my sons birthday at the weekend but not actually completing it and posting it, I have not blogged for A WEEK !!! How terrible is that?
I have been so busy for this week, we have had birthday parties to plan, day trip to the local environmental festival, my poor car had to go into the garage for three days and all of the other things that life throws at you.
I dont know about you but I am so ready for the summer. I want to sit out in the garden and watch my sweeties run around and play in the paddling pool, day trips out, picnics and homemade lemonade. The summer in England does not last for long and even sometimes only for a couple of days, but I sure look forward to when it arrives.
I was thinking today about all of the fun things I would like to do with the children over the summer and I am starting to make little plans in my head of ways to keep them occupied and happy. They both enjoy spending time doing crafty type activities so I can see me spending some time trawling for ideas to keep away for when the rain comes.
I was browsing earlier and came across some American sites and there seems to be many more celebrations and Holidays over there than we have here. I think that it may no longer be the "British" way to have street parties and get togethers that were once just a normal way of life. I think that perhaps people no longer care for these traditions and see tham as "Old fashioned" and just cant be bothered. I mean most people will tell you something about Saint Patricks day but have no idea about St Georges Day. Okay so i will get off my soap box now.
I love to celebrate things, birthdays, anniversarys and holidays. I rarely need an excuse to have some sort of little party with the children and the best parties we have are the "Just because" parties. We have them for no other reason than "Just Because" and will make a special tea or picnic to have together.
What do you look forward to doing over the summer? Do you have any special plans or little things that you simply must do because it is summer?
