Week 30 – 24-30 July 2023


A busy first week of the school summer holidays.

30.5The kids spent the week at Outdoor Guernsey and they had a fantastic time – coasteering, nerf wars, archery, climbing etc.

Even better it was The Little Miss’ 9th birthday and it was on Friday which meant she had a brilliant time at Outdoor Guernsey. I had made a couple of massive chocolate cakes for them all and she had a great time. We had a few friends and family over and had pizza for tea. We are lucky to have such a fabulous daughter although she is definitely like a grumpy teenager at times!

Saturday was a really busy day. In the mornung we went for a walk to do the Scarecrow Walk. Such a fun, creative event. In the afternoon/evening we had a massive family party. It was billed as a 100th birthday party as my Uncle was 70 and my cousin was 30. It was a fantastic excuse to all get together (I reckon there was at least 60 of us!) and I had such a fun evening. I love my family. Fun and entertaining.

The weekend ended with an invite for the kids to swim in my cousins pool and then a BBQ at Dad’s house with my aunt and uncle and cousins. We also had some family staying so it was a mental and busy weekend and it was such a wonderful time.

I am absolutely knackered now though!

Torteval Scarecrow Festival

We had a lovely walk around Les Babouins du Torteval, or the Torteval Scarecrow Festival. I have to admit I didn’t think were quite as many amazing entries this year – usually it is more political but it was a little bit tame!

The Room on the Broom entry was fabulous and was my favourite.

A year in pictures – Day 220

The Scarecrow Walk

I have to admit that I took this yesterday on the Scarecrow Walk. Just something else that we managed to squeeze into a very busy Sunday!

I loved this display – sacks made into Golden Guernsey Goats. Very creative!
