Me & Mine 2016 - July

There's nothing like a good wedding to bring family together and that's what we did on 23rd July when my Sister and her fiance got married. It was a beautiful day and it felt really nice to get dressed up, have our hair done and celebrate the love of two very special people. Our photo this month was taken at the wedding by the very talented Martyn of Thompson Photography. If you are on the look out for a photographer in North West area then go check him out. He is super friendly and made us all feel very at ease. I can't wait to see the wedding shots!

July seems to be the month for weddings in our family as Husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on the 15th and two of our very good friends got married on the 16th. Summer weddings are definitely my favourite, followed closely by Christmas.

Aside from yummy food, dancing into the wee hours and a sore head, I've been enjoying the time off for the summer holidays. The perks of teaching! Last summer I knew I would be back to college and studying even harder but this holiday has been a bit less stressful. I'm really looking forward to going back to work on 17th August but I'm also enjoying the time with the kids and Husband. I've read quite a few books that aren't childcare related which has been great too!

Husband took a week off work to finish off our bathroom and he did a brilliant job, as always. He managed to finish it three days into his holiday which meant he could enjoy the sunshine and a lunch date with me. I didn't ask him which one he enjoyed the most! He is missing having his motorbike in this weather and would love to buy one that is "just for fun!"

Zachary has been loving being a bit more independent this holiday. He's been out playing with my next door neighbour's Grandson and another boy from our street. They love playing football together and discussing Xbox 360. At the wedding, Zachary had to take the wedding rings to the bestman. He was quite nervous but did a grand job. He loved dancing with all the family and eating burgers for the wedding meal.

Charlotte wants to join in with her big brother so badly but I still think she is a bit small for having the same freedom as Zachary. Maybe next year I'll feel differently but she has been loving playing outside with her Playmobil toys and riding her bike lots more. She can shoot off like a lightening bolt now! Charlotte was a beautiful flower girl, along with her cousin, at the wedding. They were so cute together and everyone said they were quite alike. They are definitely as cheeky as each other.

I can't believe that it is August tomorrow. This time last year we were on the 2 month countdown until our Disney holiday. We don't have anything like that to look forward to but as I enter the world of full time employment in a new career, I don't think it will be long until we're looking forward to our next trip. August tends to be a quiet month for us aside from the fun of getting ready to go back to school.
