It’s been two weeks since we returned from our fabulous hols in Singapore (more blog posts coming on that trip!), and we’ve been so busy settling back into ‘Term 3’ of the school year – especially with the man of the house away, on business, for a week and a half. He was working in the UK (some 40 hours of travelling time away) and though we missed him heaps, I was really happy for him to squeeze in an evening with his brother, sister and parents.
He also caught up with his best friend from his school years (whom he hadn’t seen in eight, long years!), in Oxford, on his last night.
Whilst he was travelling through from Newcastle to Durham, and Birmingham to Leeds, taking in the countryside (and pubs) in between…
We were busy on the school routines and fitting in some fun times in between.
We saw the fantastic film ‘Inside Out’, and visited the beautiful Wellington Botanic Garden on the weekends. The daffodils were blooming!
The gardens were so beautiful and there was a brief hint of spring (though we are far from there… some cold fronts forecast for much of August!).
Miss 9 put together this awesome video of our visit (the editing is ALL her own work & she directed me as to what to film).
Now we are back to being a happy family of five, with hubby returning home before school finished. His presence at school pick-up was such a warm and welcome surprise for his three daughters.
It’s great to have him home x
