Another week bites the dust..

Well another week of the school holidays gone...

We went bowling, swimming, hospital appointment, picnic, drives in the car, out for pub lunches, to a small music festival and on a long bus ride to Chichester (took my mum on that one)... and to top it all, it was a 'double decker' bus, the first ever that Steven had been on, so we just HAD to go upstairs and sit in the front... (as usually the local buses are just single decker)....

Sitting at the front and being so high was novelty to Steven (and me), as Steven loved looking down on people but and for me it was the not driving, and having time looking at all the lovely houses and gardens and chat to my mum on the way.
It was a number 700 that goes from Portsmouth to Brighton, along the scenic route, (where I usually drive on the main roads for quickness) but we stopped at Chichester, as felt a an hour and half ride each way was enough, lol....

and guess who forgot not only her camera, but her mobile as well, doh....

On the way back we stuck to the downstairs, as not sure Steven would have made it back up the stairs as we had pottered around Chichester just stopping for a jacket potato for lunch, so he was rather tired...

On another day we went for a drive to Southampton as last time I was there I saw a craft shop, so wanted to take my auntie and mum to have a nose... we also popped into Ikea as I wanted to have a look at the 'expedit' units in real life, as thought about getting some for Stevens room when we re-do it...

I was good and didn't buy too much stash, lol...


and we had a picnic in the park....


We had fun at the music festival, but it bought the worse out in hubby... LOL


and they did a quiz, in which we won first prise, it was a team effort, hubby knew the answers, daughter wrote them down and and I collected the prize...
but hubby soon pinched it off me. when he realised what the prize was, lol...


So it all, another busy week, and cannot yet again believe how quickly these summer school holidays are going, BUT as usual, am finding them very tiring, and am looking forward to getting back in a routine though and some energy back too...

Oh yes and we had football yesterday afternoon and came a close 2nd again..... enough said about that, lol....

I know gina, I was more surprised at forgetting my mobile, as it's usually glued to me...

LOL gina, never noticed my auntie sitting funny before, it was some sort of post, as not enough room on the bench, (and her bum is bigger than mine)...lol...

ha ha ha! poor clive.
of course i forgot your aunty was with you. it makes a brill pic, i love it. again it would make a great page. you could even if your clever enough, is crop the photo take your aunty and her invisable stool. and put it on the front of a birthday card for her.
this is when you have tons of spare time on your hands. lol
