Snapshot: Rainy days and Mondays


This late summer bank holiday weekend has felt like more than three days. Friends came to stay, we ate and drank and talked late into the night. It felt restorative and necessary. The kids giggled and refused sleep, as is traditional for a sleepover.

Later, we had some time away from the kids, who went to stay at their grandma's. We drank tea, ate cake, and read the paper, cover to cover, for the first time in YEARS. We ate out with friends.

Then Sunday we hopped in the car and headed for Longleat Safari Park. In the sunshine. On bank holiday Sunday. Madness. But the boys loved it, especially those naughty monkeys scrambling all over the car.

And now we're planning rainy day activities to stop us going stir crazy in the house. Been waiting for the right time to make bath bombs and I think today is the day.

Summer's over, isn't it? I have mixed feelings about the past couple of months - the first proper school hols we've had, really. It's been a lot of fun, but also a little bickery and tense at times.

I've started an Autumn board on Pinterest to remind me of the good things to come, as I can't help feeling a little gloomy about the impending months (it is a little sparse right now). What do you love about Autumn? Remind me.
