Welcome to the first post of June and the 22nd of 2017 when we celebrate what is
First up a fabulous celebratory mass and award ceremony at school for said 16 year old, who has now been officially stood down for study leave. I must admit to feeling a little emotional during the service.
Next up is a big thank you to one of his friends for his invite on Friday night, it was a fabulous way to wind down after the leavers' celebrations!
Here he is before we set off.
Next up is the journey home, having collected him at 11.45pm - we decided a trip to McD's on the way home was called for - this was just gone midnight and it was still 15 degrees as you can tell from the clock!
Saturday morning and he was treated to breakfast in bed, I did tell him not to get used to it!
I managed some scrapbooking - yay! I mean YAY!
A long time coming, all layouts from said 16 year old's trip to New York in February 2016 (yes I am that far behind on the scrapbooking front).
So first up a group shot in Grand Central station
Then views off the top of the Empire State building
Then shots of Time Square
And finally the half face selfie in Time Square
We enjoyed some blue sky days, in fact a little too much, I managed to get my shoulders burnt on Saturday, I honestly hadn't realised, I did early evening I can tell you!
We enjoyed a glass of white out on the decking after a very busy day working in the garden, which feels like it is taking forever to sort!
We even managed an impromptu barbecue Saturday evening, nothing major, a pack of burgers and some baps
Sunday and we enjoyed a bottle of red, the garden looking more like Steptoe & son at the moment!
The cloud coverage was welcome on Sunday when it finally arrived
Bank holiday Monday and a day of rest as it rained which resulted in some of the aforementioned scrapbook layouts.
Tuesday and Wednesday were very busy days at work as usual and then Thursday I headed to the other job which is by the canal, this is a view from one of my colleague's desk, isn't it lovely, although it is a little warm in the boat house at the moment.
I hope you've had a grand week, if you fancy joining in then pop a post together, pop back and link up and we can come and visit.
