Not much this month, just celebrating my much-adored son
So this year I had my first summer school! I could only do one day out of the five but hopefully more next year. The following pics are from my trip to the 2017 Summer School for MA English Language via distance learning at the University of Nottingham.
Allensford. This may have quickly become one of our favourite family places. Nothing flash, at all, just a lovely space for running around (or watching younger, more energetic, members of the family running around!) and BREATHING.
Is this a little woodland creature (at Allensford)?
Emily has wanted to go here for so long. We took a picnic but it was so windy and chilly we just ate it in the car; there are a surprisingly large number of picnics best eaten in the car around here! But it doesn’t take away from the experience, the sense of fun and adventure.
Me and my girl. This is in the woods around the Angel of the North.
Emily at the splash pad at Riverside Park. You couldn’t call it a heatwave, by any stretch of the imagination, but there’s a definite feel in the air that summer is on its way.

Cartwheels in Grandma’s garden
Summery little girl!
One of the great things about working from home with your own business: Bailey’s in coffee for elevenses (or ten-ses). The credit for this stroke of genius has to go to my cousin Sarah, though.
28th: Capturing everyday detail – sleepy girl. I love capturing tiny details that may evoke a gut reaction, a lost memory, when we look at them in twenty years. Assuming the internet hasn’t imploded by then of course (must get prints made!)
