function Chicken and Custard

Sunday, 10 August 2014


We made many stops on our epic drive from Calais 
to Sarlat in the Dordoigne region of France.
But the most memorable was our visit to Chartres
where we had a bit of a wander around he city
to stretch our legs, and to visit Chartres Cathedral.

We Sold Our Van...

...after a couple of hours on Ebay,
a very nice lady called us to say she really wanted to buy it
and she drove down from Manchester
to take it to its new home
where she's got great things planned for it!

We were all sad to see it go, but have plans afoot
for lots more festivals and camping trips.

Wookey Hole

After Farm Festival, we decided not to go home
but drove over to Wookey Hole instead,
drank pear cider and ate Sunday Lunch at The Wookey Hole Inn 
then camped at Lower Milton Farm.
A beautiful campsite - and a fitting place 
to spend our last-ever-night in the caravan.

Farm Festival 2014

A wee film of our weekend at the 
Farm Festival in Somerset...

Great company, great music
and the rain stopped just in time

Good times!

Sports Days

Two 'Sports Days' in one day.

First up was Maisy.

The Green Team (St. Patrick's)

The obstacle race

The bat and beanbag race
Next up was Jamie...

Let's just say he improved his ranking from last year.
Must be all that training he's been doing.

Best friends.
Molly's turn came later that day.

Collecting her prize.

Waiting to start the relay race.

Even the teachers had a go....

Maisy's class went camping.
Real camping. In real tents
30 seven year olds.
And some very brave teachers.

Here she is before....

According to Maisy, it was her best trip ever!

Father's Day

A sunny morning.
A drive up to Clumber Park.
A bit of a walk.
An impromptu picnic.
Tea and the papers.
A sausage sizzle.
A rope swing.
Some football.
A lovely day.
A lovely Dad.

Happy Father's Day Jamie.
