Me and Mine - June 2015

dear beautiful me and mine

June saw us getting outside more, as we took part in 30 Days Wild. Much of that was in our garden, which is coming on nicely. Not all our vegetables have taken to the poor soil, but we've had some lettuce and rocket and a few strawberries. The wild flowers we sowed are looking beautiful and attracting butterflies, bees and even a damsel fly.
We also took part in the Rationing Challenge, which was educational and pretty tasty. 
We checked out a few nearby fayres, visited the Safari Park a couple of times - just avoiding being eaten by lions, when we realised B had opened the back windows in the car! - and got on with more decluttering. 
We made use of our new English Heritage membership too, and this month's photo was taken at Wrest Park on Fathers Day. It's the first time we've been there, and we will definitely go again. 
Towards the end of the month, I ended up with labyrinthitis. It is horrendous. Constantly dizzy, nauseous and feeling that the room is spinning. I've not been able to drive and it's been pretty tough on the girls, because we've not been able to get out during the week. Labyrinthitis can last 2-3 weeks. Here's hoping it will be over soon. 

This month:

The Hubby has enjoyed...
Seeing his new exercise regime getting results
Getting his back waxed
Making preparations for turning the spare room into the girls' bedroom
The food we ate during the Ration Challenge
M speaking more words

I have enjoyed...
Trying out Egyptian dance at Strawberry Fair
Enjoying the first fruits of our garden
The Ration Challenge
30 Days Wild
Helping my cousin with breastfeeding her new baby
Watching Hunt for the Red October with the Hubby

B has enjoyed...
Watering the garden
Theatre Bugs and soft play each week
A friend's birthday party
Wearing her Flower Girl dress daily
Reading her Marvel characters Encyclopaedia
Flying off the wet slide during a rainy trip to the park

M has enjoyed...
Watering the garden
Watching Lego Superheroes and shouting, "Hulk!" at the screen
Saying her own name
Going for "poo wee wee" on the toilet
Climbing and declaring, "Did it!" when she succeeds.
