Our Joys of June

Wow July already, where is this year going. We have had some pretty exciting moments, here are some of our favourite joys of June.

June started off with Danny moving into his own home about 3.5 miles from us, this was a very busy couple of days moving him and getting him settled, he is now a very happy chappie! one happy chappie = happy parents.

Next up we have Bradley who has now started performing arts college.  He attends on a Saturday afternoon and is thoroughly enjoying himself. Bradley is busy practicing as he will be performing in a 80’s performance in November and is really looking forward to performing.

We had an awesome weekend away camping in the new forest, it was our very first time going camping and certainly will not be the last. It was a bloggers weekend away, we met some lovely bloggers and their families it was lovely meeting them all.

I came home from work to a beautiful surprise. Ian surprised me with a bouquet of flowers……the reason being “just because”.

Buddy turned 9, we have had him since he was a pup and have celebrated every birthday with him.

We attended our very first blogging conference called BritMums. This was a two-day event meaning an overnight stay in London. We met up with some blogging friends made whilst camping the weekend before and we all had a great time, it was all of our first time at BritMums so we all felt the same…..nervous but excited. Everyone at BritMums was so friendly and we met and made even more lovely blogging friends.

Ian enjoyed a nice relaxing Father’s Day, he enjoyed having full control of the TV remote for the whole day (the boy’s had to give in as it’s fathers day).

Guess what?….. I only went and got my 3 stone award at Slimming World. I was so shocked, I lost a whooping 4 lb in one week and that took me to my 3 stone…….Yes there was tears, I cried, but they was happy tears. I am now two stone away from my target.

We had a lovely meal out and got photo bombed. We went for a nice meal at our favourite family pub/restaurant it has a lovely garden that overlooks the river and it’s very kid friendly.

Do you hate cooking in the hot wether? I do, we looked into making some summer meals and have been enjoying homemade chicken shish kebabs.

I booked our daring/exciting crystal anniversary gift. Ian is unaware of what it is, I will not be telling him what it is until the day……Those that know me know this will be extremely hard for me. All will be revealed in August.

We had a very happy proud parent moment. There was a football presentation and Lee received an award for his performance throughout the season. Lee was very happy and we was extremely proud.

We are ending our month with Lee busy packing to head to Kingswood with the school for his field trip on Wednesday. The trip is to help him gain 25% of his geography GCSE. This week will be a strange week, it will only be myself and Bradley as Ian will be on night shift and Lee will be away on his trip.

How was June for you? did you have any fun/cherished moments?
