Well that's the football season over with.
Oh apart from the European Championship, but I don't mind that so much as it's only once every four years, plus it's a good excuse to meet friends and be patriotic.
I love an excuse for a get together, preferably one where we can barbecue, then all shout and cheer at the telly. No I don't mind European Championships and even World Cups, especially if England actually haven't been knocked out.
The season I'm referring to is the September to May months where I loose my husband and car every Saturday. Mark is football mad, plays in a local team on these Saturday afternoons, then watches every match possible on the big screen. Therefore Tommy and I amuse ourselves on Saturdays, thank you very much.
But now it's over and I have reclaimed my husband and car! Which means we are a (mobile) family again ALL weekend, with a whole bunch of stuff to delve into.
As long as we remember not to spend too much money. Because outings these days can cost a small fortune and alas we do not hold a never ending supply of money.
Although I've always believed, with a pinch of imagination, and hopefully a splash of sunshine, you don't necessarily have to spend big to have lots of fun. Some of the best pleasures in life are free.
I think we proved this fact last Saturday when myself, Mark and Tommy, took a trip to the footpath down the road, the one which leads to the forest.
It was time to see what mysteries and adventures we could unravel. And it didn't cost a thing, except the £2 for Tommy's ice-cream at the bottom of the forest.
Now you can't begrudge a kid a £2 ice-cream, can you?
The path to mysteries.
Collecting flower fairies and making wishes.
On the look out for forest dragons.
I wonder if pixies live in this tree?
Time to rest.
Searching for ducks.
Pretending to be a giant.
