A Big July

July was a busy month in the Blissful House, as evidenced by my absence form the blogosphere.

We discovered Church Farm. I am going to write a separate post about that sometime, but in the meantime it is brilliant, by far the best Children's Farm we have been to.  In short there are animals to view and pet, brilliant indoor and outdoor play areas, tractor rides, woods, cafe...



BB went to his first Disco - the end of term party at his swimming club. I love this place. Its the local Virgin Active centre. The swimming lessons are great, but what I like about it most is that it is a really family friendly place. If we lived closer we'd be members, but as it is, we just travel there once a week.

Yes that's him and Lily again!
Then BB turned three and we had his Birthday Party. A small affair at home in the garden, with about 6 kids and their parents, plus our family. We ended up with 24 people in total, ranging from 9 weeks to 99 years old. It was fun. Thankfully the weather held out for us too or my tiny house would have been bursting at the seams.



Yep - Lily again!

Then 2 days after BB turned 3 my Nana turned 99! She is an incredible woman - still living in her own home, though really she would be better off in a home with people to take care of her and others to talk to - but she doesn't think so. She thinks they are places people go to die - so she's not going!




Then we had some of BB's Australian family come to visit us for a few days. We took them out and about the local area. Showing them Sandringham Woods, Norfolk Lavender, Cromer, Wells, Stamford and Burghley House. BB also went on his first ever fairground ride at Cromer Beach.




In summary, it was a busy but brilliant month. 

Amidst all this - I decided to TTC again! More on that in another post to follow.
