There are some lovely new toys round here. Among them are two frog princes and two beautiful porcelain dolls, (one with red hair), sitting, waiting to be discovered, because Kerstie is bringing our little girls, (one with red hair) down for a few days.

I’m just three days away from leaving to England for the summer, which I’m so very excited about, but always miss my children, so love having my middle child and my beautiful granddaughters in town before I go.

Kerstie ran into heavy traffic driving down, so the girls got here practically just in time for bed, but with a little play, a snack, a little cuddle and a story from “auntie Chloe”, off to sleep they went, Ever and Isla in the huge brass bed and Zoe in her cot in Kerstin’s room.

And how tired were they? Kers says they always get up at 7:30, but it was 9am by the time we saw their little faces! Hooray for a sleep in! Kers couldn’t believe her luck.

Today was raspberries for breakfast and afternoon Barbie picnics. It was such a hot summer’s day that Chloe attached the hose to the water mister…which should have only cooled down the garden, not soaked the girls…lol…they had other plans, so, a change of clothes later, and snuggles at the TV for a cartoon. It’s amazing how children “zone” out!

I walked around and watered the garden this evening. I’m so happy to see the noble privet in full bloom. I left the blossoms on it for the bees and they seem to appreciate it to the max. It’s positively buzzing. Bees need all the help they can get. The hummingbirds have been camped out in my garden lately and absolutely loving the crocosmia. I keep trying to take their photo. Darn speedy little things! If they’d just hold still for a minute…

We’re planning a beach trip tomorrow. The heat wave is supposed to intensify, so I already hear the ocean calling our name. 😀

      Do you think so Jo? Bunny looks so much like baby Kerstin, so probably very much like my side of the family. 😀 And yes! I’m bringing the sun. Just two more sleeps. 😀

    oh what sweetie pies. I love it when our grands come to visit….they all live on the coast. Don’t you love to play tea parties and their little imaginative play?
