Welcome to Me and Mine August, the Summer holidays addition!!
First off I hope everyone has had a lovely summer, haven’t we been lucky with the hot weather. Shame it didn’t last through the school holidays…..in fact it got cooler just in time for Kev to have some off!
We had a holiday at home this summer. Kev had 2 weeks off from work which is amazing in the school holidays for me, but lovely for him to be able to have that time with the kids. We have had some lovely day trips out places, just really chilled and no stress with rushing around.
We had a walk to a local river near us when we remembered that we had taken a Me and Mine about September last year in this exact place. So we quickly got into the same position and took an updated one!
It was nice to think back because back then I was on a cocktail of drugs, about a month before my back operation date and I hadn’t been out for a walk (shuffle!) for about a month. I was in so much pain and I was just pushing through it. I was able to look at the progress I had made, which is often hard to do when you’re still in pain. But I am doing well and I think there is always going to be things I can’t do or not well and I just have to manage good days and bad. But at least I was able to walk happily with the children and only turn back because I wanted to.
So August is also my birthday and we took a trip to a sunflower field. I have been wanting to visit this for a while so I was a happy bunny!
Shame the rain came along not long after this photo was taken!
We’ve had a lovely summer and visited to many lovely places together that I will be sharing on the blog over the next few weeks. It just sucks it has to come to an end and back to work and school!

I am taking part in the Me and Mine photo project with Dear Beautiful for my 4th year. This project is all about capturing your family each month, and not just getting pictures a couple of times a year at photo shoots or at special occasions.
