There are days when everything seems to fall in to place, Friday evening was one of those. The sun was shining, it was almost the weekend and, more importantly, my husband was working from home so would be able to finish on time without being delayed by the craziness that rush hour brings.
We decided on a spontaneous trip to one of our local favourite places for a little walk, a little drink in the sun and some fish and chips. We had a lovely evening and, whilst we ended up eating our chips inside as it was a little cooler than expected, we all enjoyed ourselves – it was like being on our holidays.
I love these pictures that I took of my girls. I have been enjoying watching them together this summer, they have always had a good relationship but now they are aged 3 and 5 they get along brilliantly (most of the time!).
It has been interesting seeing how much they have changed, especially Meme who just seems to have grown so much in the last 12 months. She has always been the more laid back daughter but these last few weeks she has definitely been testing at times. She is craving adventure all the time, which I love, but we have also had a few instances where she is answering back and rolling her eyes. I try to let it pass as I know it’s all part of growing up but we have had some strict words at times. Harri has been the complete opposite, since she turned three in June she has been like a completely different child. There are not as many tantrums or demands and she is a pleasure to be around, albeit a little bit of a chatterbox. She is ready for her next chapter starting preschool and, although she is more sociable than her sister, I know, unlike Meme, there will be lots of tears on her first day.
I love that we have made so many memories together this summer.
