Anyway, since the grass in invariably greener I now don't want the summer to end. Cleggy has gone back to work today after a glorious 5 weeks working from home and I'm missing him already. Alfie starts High School tomorrow and GB starts Juniors...you can feel the nervous excitement in the air at Casa Clegg!
So, Kenzie, our gentle soul, reached double digits
at the end of August.
And for the last week of the summer hols we decided to spend some time at one of our favourite places in the world - Gesail in Snowdonia.
I think it's the 5th time we've visited - and as we cross the ford on the track leading up to the barn I feel can my shoulders relax. No TV, no phone signal, no internet, no DVD player, and normally we ban all electronic games - but this time allowed ipods. And have to admit there was more than once I was glad we did!
Cleggy and the boys loved building their dens and playing with fire (just kidding Granny!)
We've always visited Wales in the colder months before and were really looking forward to being there in high summer. Unfortunalty, it was as cold as ever for most of the week, although the sun did come out towards the end and tricked us, resulting in shiny red noses for Cleggy and I!
The whole place is boy heaven - we found the top of the secret waterfall (thanks for sharing the secret Raynes!), walked for miles and the boys splashed in every bit of water we came across:
...although the walk home wasn't always fun!
The views are just stunningThank you Raynes and Patrick for sharing - you know we like to think it's our ancestral home too! We had another fab week and can't wait to visit again.
and thanks from the boys too!
Oh, one last thing before I get to bed on this school night - at long last my first crochet ta daa.
Thank you for teaching me Jane (♥)
