Where did the summer go?!

We're truly pausing here - the boy and I are holidaying on the Isle of Wight with family.
It's great not to have to rush here and there and just take life a little bit easy. It's fab too to spend time with family, four generations under one roof - it gets a bit noisy at times but makes me realise how lucky the boy is to be able to get to know Great Nannie as well as spend time with grandparents, auntie and cousins.
Typically the amazing weather we've been experiencing did not come on holiday with us, it's been a little wet and windy today but we still managed to make it to the beach for a paddle!
Yeah, ok, so it was a bit windy but that's the great British summer for you! And we warmed up with an ice cream afterwards!

A walk in the sun

Today we've been for a walk with friends. We've been enjoying actual sun the like of which we haven't seen for ages and it seemed a shame not to get outside and really enjoy it - who knows how long it will last!
So we got to see some of our beautiful countryside and stunning views. It was definitely a day to pause in the pursuit of happiness and just be happy.

The elephants went in four by four (nearly)

So, a quick update on the crafting (yeah, it's a word!)
Elmer and his friends are almost ready for their outlining. The last elephant has been a pain to sew, despite having sewn three of them already he went wrong several times. Now a lesser mortal would probably have thought that it all adds to the 'homemade look' I just knew that it would bother me every time I looked at it if I didn't unpick it and start again. Twice. Grrr.

So as you can see the end is in sight and then it will be time to start the next project - hurrah!
