I can't believe it's been over 2 weeks since I last blogged, time seems to be running away from me at the moment & I'm trying to catch up with all the blogs that I read, I suppose it will be easier now that Autumn is upon us! It was my eldest daughter's birthday on Saturday, Happy Birthday Jemma. She has recently moved out of her apartment and into a house with a garden so she had friends over for a barbecue, luckily the weather stayed dry as it has been awful for the past couple of weeks.
Mr CB had a weeks holiday and we were going to go away in our caravan but the keys have been mislaid, if they are not found we will have to change all the locks as you can't get replacement keys for the type of lock. Lily was very disappointed but we had some days out instead. We started to go to Dartmoor wildlife park, headed up the A30 towards Exeter then realised the wildlife park was over the other side nearer to Plymouth. By this time it was also raining so we ended up going into Okehampton, we looked around the town Charity Shop's and then the sun came out. So we headed over to the park and had a picnic, it's a beautiful park with a stream running alongside it and we found a really cute house in the grounds. It looks just like something out of a fairytale.
We went to Trethorne leisure farm one day, well for 2 hours! Saw some animals and Lily played in the sandpit and that was enough of that.
And we went up to Bude, it was quite sunny. We had a mooch around the town, bought some fish & chips to take to the beach for lunch, put our (my) shopping in the car and the heavens opened. So lunch was eaten in the car and this is what the beach looked like after.
Some Enid Blyton.
And of course you need a bit of kitsch.
Of course last week held the day that we have been waiting for all summer, GCSE results day. I'm glad to say Jodie passed all her exams with 1 A*, 3 A's, 4 B's and 2 C's, well done Jodie! She has now enrolled in the sixth form to do A levels in Drama, B Tec music & performance, English language, Philosophy & Ethics as well as her gold arts award.
