Me & Mine – August

This month’s Me & Mine photo is a reminder of how lucky we have been this summer to visit two different countries in the space of a month. August’s Me & Mine was a photo of us at La Grange Du Moulin in France and a month later I’m sharing a photo of us by a lake in Sweden after a lovely campfire lunch…

We did a flying 6 day trip to Sweden to visit friends and had a really amazing and memorable time as they looked after us especially well (a whole other post about this is waiting to be written)

Anyway I’m late already with this month’s Me & Mine, so this is what we’ve been enjoying in August…



Exercising (err what?!)
Celebrating my birthday on the River Thames on an amazing boat
My new iPhone SE (finally upgraded from a 5C after 4 years!)
Simple eating
Watching Tiny House /Eco House videos on YouTube


Cooking pizzas in the outdoor oven (even if it is still on the ground)
Being an Uncle (woohoo, welcome baby Ben!)
Woodfired outdoor hottubs
Celebrating his 40th


Turning 6!
His new discman (retro tech a big hit!)
Singing along to Gangnam Style (see above)
Widget Spinners (he finally got one for his birthday)
His new Huxter top (see photo above)
Glow in the dark dinosaur pyjamas


Drawing (especially with her Water Magic book)
Having stories read to her
