So that was summer

Summer 2013In a blink of an eye, summer is over. Just like that, August has ended and September is here.

Except it’s not just like that. Some of the days themselves stretched out in a sea of crafting, tantrums and stress over juggling deadlines with parenthood.

But others were blissful. Hazy summer picnics, bike rides, trips to the beach, exploring our new home near Dartmoor. 

Beach days Summer 2013

We went to Cornwall, twice. Stayed in hotels and on campsites. We went to London, Warwickshire and all over Devon.

We painted at home and we picnicked in the park. We built sandcastles on the beach and dens in the garden. We spent time with much-loved family. We stayed up late and watched the stars come out in the sky one by one.

Home fun summer 2013

Summer 2013, I miss you already.

    We went to see those ponies! Missy Woo loved the ponies in the field but did not like the pony ride one bit, she’s such a wuss. Monkey wasn’t bothered about going on a pony but actually loved it. The road to get to it was hairy tho. 🙂

    You have moved to a beautiful part of the world. It will have its downsides but on the whole, I’m sure it will be a fab place to live in the long run.

    A lovely post Molly – one to look back on. One for the memory box as I call it.

    Awesome summer – box ticked.

    Hope you’re settling in and happy xx

    I usually really look forward to the Autumn but I’m just not this year. I think it’s because we’ve actually had lots of sun and I just don’t want it to end. The thought of dark evenings and cold, rainy days is not a happy one. Even Xmas isn’t appealing to me this year! x
