It’s the end of another month and now officially summer! Well it’s the summer holidays at least, even if the weather doesn’t reflect it… but I won’t dwell on the weather, let’s keep things positive! We’ve just come back from a week in the South of France where the weather was warm and we relaxed and spent seven blissful days playing in the pool, on the beach and at the lake. I’ll be posting more about our holiday in the next few days, so please keep an eye out. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have already seen quite a few pictures – I can only apologise for the holiday spam. Normal level of pictures will now resume.
This month has also seen Lili finish her first year at school and wave goodbye to her school friends for the summer months. She had a glowing end of year report and I honestly couldn’t be more proud of the kind, sweet-hearted girl she’s turning into. I can’t wait to spend the next few weeks with my two girls, the three of us together with no interruptions from school or nursery. In September Lili will be going into year 1 and Poppy will start pre-school, so things will be very different, which makes me want to make even more of this special time we have together.
These pictures were taken on our last night in France…

Learning to swim on her own on holiday (with armbands I should add – she is only two).
Her new bikini – I’m not usually a big fan of little girls in bikinis but the girls both loved them (and they did look so cute).
Having Lili home to play with everyday!
Have a good month!!
