Our last post was way back in June and since then all we’ve really done is post pictures to our Twitter and Instragram accounts.
There is no reason for this beyond the want to spend more time with the family and enjoy summer, and it was a nice summer as for us as well.
So what have we been doing in the 2 Bottles of Milk household this summer.
Well a lot actually. Here we are going to give you a brief overview some of which will follow in bigger blog posts others will stay as that just an overview.
In July we were lucky enough to go to Legoland thanks to the coupons in a well known National Newspaper and we had a wonderful time.
Although Oliver and Leo were too young for a few of the rides there were more then enough to keep them amused all day and too be honest we could have had another day there and not got bored.
One of the things we have wanted to do for a while is erect a wall between our kitchen and living room. As anyone with young children knows the last place you want them when cooking is in the kitchen under your feet.
Well we finally got around to actually doing it this summer and the transformation it has made to the room is amazing. Although not painted yet it’s amazing how different the room looks as a result.
American Speedfest @Brands Hatch
This was an amazing day out that both the boys loved. Oliver has need mad on Disney Cars and cars in general for as long as I can remember now and this was the perfect day out for him.
The boys got to meet Mater, Finn McMissile and Lightning McQueen along with a host of other cars that were present and also watch some NASCAR Racing that is held at Brands Hatch every year.
We’ve also had great days out at Hadleigh Castle, The Beach and Greenwich Park in London.
Personally I’ve been busy with work (two weeks in Cambridge was not fun) and also marking 50 years since Star Trek first debuted by going to see the new movie Star Trek Beyond and looking forward to Destination Star Trek in October and Star Trek Discovery (coming next year to Netflix).
As we look forward to the end of the year and the many things we have to look forward to and the things that come around year after year. We will be blogging as much as we can and we will also be doing our, now annual, ‘Have Yourself a Thrifty Little Christmas’ from the 7th November onwards.
