It's been a bit crazy here!

I'm here, I'm here - I've finally found time between rushing around like crazy and collapsing on the sofa or in bed to write a post! Life has been a bit hectic here over the last few weeks - birthday parties, end of school year activities, a weekend camping, lots of orders and magazine work are in the plus column. Being sick with a tummy bug and then a chesty cough are most definitely in the minus! Somehow, I managed to get the bugs going round preschool and they passed B by - not that I'm complaining about him not getting them you understand, but I wish they'd passed me by too! Anyway, I thought that rather than write a long post about what we've been doing I'd show you some pictures!

Larmer Tree Festival
Apart from summer Christian camps as a teenager the Larmer Tree was the first festival I'd been too -
and it was fantastic!
It's a folk/arts/crafts festival and there was always something going on - bands on one of the stages, comedy acts in the Lounge tent, street artists, buskers, crafts to try for both adults and children -
and everywhere we turned there was something else to see - 
for example giant wooden dragonflies and birds made from recycled bottles! 
It was really family orientated too.
The weather was fantastic too, perfect for camping. B's favourite part was sleeping in the tent!
It was the Larmer Tree's 20th year, and you can find more information about it here

Leaving preschool
B finished preschool last week - a day of very mixed emotions!
He has really loved preschool this year, and has learnt so much and grown so much more confident. 
He's only moving next door to the infant school, but it's going to feel like a big change. 
He's already done some settling in as they've spent time with their new classes.
Don't you love the 'graduation' hat he made on their last day? 

Preschool Trip
The day after the last day of preschool was the end of year trip to Adventure Wonderland near Bournemouth. Definitely a place to visit again! We also managed to squeeze in a quick visit to the airplane museum next door as well.

Tank Museum
This was our first trip out of the summer holidays - B loved the tank display but definintely wasn't as keen on the displays inside! The first part of the display, that you had to walk through to get to the other sections, was a life-size model of WWI trenches, complete with noises playing to you from the walls - a bit too much for my four and a half year old! Oh well, maybe when he's older!

Right then, off to do a bit more work before collapsing into bed - it's the Arundel Bath Race tomorrow and I've got a stall there again. The weather's supposed to be good so we're looking forward to a family day out watching strange bath tub boats trying to stay afloat on the River Arun - hopefully while selling my jewellery too!
