Alive and Kicking after week 3...

So this week we weren't supposed to be around, having planned to be camping at Belchamps.  But plans changed and we went with it.
Monday was a bit of a lazy day.  I took Nicholas and Cassandra to the library so that Cassie could discuss her two books she's been reading for the Summer Reading Challenge and then we dropped Alexander off at his scout bud Alex's house as they were planning an afternoon/evening of Warhammer..
 Cassie and I then did some baking - her brownies went down well!
Tuesday was literally a total veg out day, Millie came round for a sleepover and in the evening Lee and Nicholas joined James and Ben and Matt & Samuel at a local footie match.
 On Wednesday, the girls prepared a tombola that the boys and I had to pay to join in!
That afternoon Cassandra went to Henry's football party in the rain at - she had great fun and even scored a goal!
Wednesday night I took Mum and Alex to the cinema to see Dunkirk.  Very moving..
 Thursday I swapped kids with Angela and the girls decided to do some shrinkies..
Friday saw Lee and Alex heading off up to Nottingham to Warhammer World.  They had dinner reservations at a restaurant called Hooters.  Alex loved it there!  I took the other two swimming!

They stayed overnight and spent the day gaming and being Geeks!
Saturday I took Nicholas and Cassie and Millie too to Kids Kingdom for a few hours and then we went down to the beach to collect some rocks to go home and paint to then go and hide them somewhere.  Kept the kids (and me) amused for hours!  We're getting on board with the Facebook group "Love Rocks UK".  If you get a chance, look it up, loads of people are getting on the bandwagon.
Sunday saw us at Sadlers Farm bootsale, do love a good bargain!  A trip to Go Outdoors to get a few last minute bits of clothing and then Lee, Nicholas and I all hit the steps at Leigh in an attempt to get fit.  Or in Nicholas' case, fitter!

Made it through the first 3 weeks of the hols!
