Its here!!!

Coming from sunny south London I have to say that I miss the early start to Summer that you get back home. You can bet on good weather from at least June through to September. Its different here, I feel like this year we have had so many false starts BUT this week, well this week my car has not recorded any single figure temperatures. Yesterday it reached 25 degrees which means about 20 in real life. Amazing.

My Dad lives in a beautiful property in Galway that really comes into its own during the summer. Theres a patio with a view, a tree-house, walks, and of course Dobbin and Petal. A few weeks ago we had a summer false start and had a BBQ and day of fun so I thought I would share photos. I took 100+ photos of the pose above in the tree-house and this was the best of the bunch. Think its a framer.

Amelie is pony obsessed. This is the first time she has taken Dobbs out for a walk and she loved it.  For her birthday (in October) she wants a white horse wrapped up in pink paper. Nice easy request this year…

Other than the ponies (and grandparents – goes without saying) the other highlight of Grandads house has to be the tree house. Again, during winter it just sits there but given a sunny day the kids are all over it. The saying ‘boys will be boys’ rings true when I see these two brothers making up games, climbing and swinging on the tyre swing.

We were writing our summer bucket lists yesterday and ‘more fun at Grandads’ ranks highly this year. I have such fond memories of my own grandparents, and summer holidays spent on the beach or in their back garden having fun and it really is good for my soul to see my own children now doing the same. We eventually decided against going back to England this summer, so knowing that we have family here and lots of days planned out is really cheering us all up. I’ll share our summer list soon, have to get through a pre-school graduation, end of term awards, school and preschool settling sessions and a certain little ladies third birthday first!

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a
    quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

    I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!

    Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday. It’s always useful to read through content from other authors and use a little something from their web sites.

  17. Loreta Master says:

    May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover a person that really understands what they’re talking about on the web. You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people ought to look at this and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.

  26. Bill Taschereau says:

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came across this during my search for something concerning this.

  27. Alex Petrik says:

    Right here is the right website for anybody who wants to find out about this topic. You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about for years. Excellent stuff, just great!
