Summer might or might not be here…

When I started this blog post a couple of weeks ago *blush*, Summer was here!!

We have taken Skipper on some lovely long walks, Skye and Pops have been taking their cameras out and had fun taking nature shots and photos of each other doing crazy things šŸ™‚

Skye is now very much into her photography, especially wildlife and nature, and is starting to think about setting up her own photography blog and has some really great ideas. She has been busy researching other photography blogs and looking at which camera she is going to put on her wish list šŸ™‚ At the moment she is using my Fuji S3200 but she really needs a DSLR, especially if she wants to shoot wildlife.

Both girls had a lovely day out recently at a Mums and Babies sling photo shoot. Skye helped the photographer, selecting and changing lenses, carrying equipment, and setting up shots. She loved it! Poppy was helping entertain the littlies and was very happy to get the opportunity to sling a very little 3 year old! šŸ™‚

Skye has had a busy social life, meeting up with friends, having sleepovers and is just, well I guess, growing up!

Poppy is quite happy to potter around at home with me and we had a really lovely day today sitting in the garden painting and then when we got too hot, came in to do some baking šŸ™‚

We waved Skye off to Scout camp for a week and unfortunately since she has been gone, the Summer seems to have hidden itself away and it has rained most days šŸ˜¦

Poppy has spent a long weekend with her Nana and Papa on the Norfolk coast and has had a brilliant time. She has visited a working mill and baked bread, been to the beach and her and Papa hired a tandem and went off on a 6 mile bike ride šŸ™‚ She made a friend too and has just had a brilliant time. Apparently she did miss us a little bit though šŸ™‚

Poppy got home on the Monday night and her friend E arrived on Tuesday to stay with us until Friday šŸ™‚ So far they have made some fimo key rings, rings and necklaces, made dinner, crocheted, stayed up late chatting, been out walking, visited Peterborough Cathedral where we went hunting for and found the memorial stone of one of our ancestors laid into the floor of the cathedral šŸ™‚ We spent the day a the Green Back Yard. clay modelling and willow weaving and they collected boxes whilst I was food shopping to make bits of an Olympic stadium!

Today looks like a good sunny day (at least until lunchtime) so we are off for a walk šŸ™‚
