Summer Days Linky 24th July
Welcome to another week of the Summer Days linky which I am co-hosting it with Katie from Mami2Five Blog this year. The link with run all the way through the summer and into September and will be the ideal place to share your summery posts and find other to read and hopefully inspire you too!
You may want to add a round up of your week, a photo you would like to share, a recipe or a craft – anything you like that makes you think of summer. Would be lovely to see some family fun outside, enjoying the summery weather, be it on holiday or messing around in your back garden. Whatever you would like to add, Katie and I are looking forward to seeing all your summery fun.
Of course there are a few simple rules we would like you to follow please:
- Link up one of your summer related posts from this year.
- Please comment on at least the two posts before yours. If you want lots of lovely blog karma (it’s a real thing, honest!) then the more you comment, the more comments you will get back – simple!
- You can use the hashtag #SummerDays when you comment to let people know where you came from.
- Please add the badge to the bottom of your post to help spread the word of the linky.
- Have fun – it’s summer!
It’s lovely to see some regular linker-uppers joining us each week. Sabrina from Mummy Stylist has linked up with some great places to visit with toddlers over the last few weeks, and this week I loved her post about a family-friendly festival at Caversham. Another regular to #SummerDays is Sarah from Extraordinary Chaos and she had another fabulous post about a spa day at Thornton Hall. Another of my favourite posts from the week was by Helen at Wonderfully Average – what could be more summery than a BBQ?
I started the summer holidays by actually going back into school. What is wrong with me eh? Well, Freyja has been wanting to see my school for some time, so I took her in to show her where I work and some of the bits and pieces we have in the Science labs. She loved the safety glasses and lab coats and even lit a Bunsen burner!!
With the girls not being at nursery we have been trying to get out and about, but not venturing too far as the weather has been so variable. We have had a couple of trips to the park. It is lovely to see the girls becoming more and more independent as they are playing now, happily entertaining themselves except for when they need a push on the swings.
When the weather hasn’t been so great we have managed to have some indoor fun too: drawing, painting and baking.
We also have some new additions to the household – some caterpillars. I thought it would be nice to watch them grow and turn into butterflies over the duration of the summer holidays. Will keep you updated with their progress!
