Half Term in Wales



 A final few days in Wales for this year,
trying to soak up as much beach/hills/light as possible to get us through the winter.

Megs in Sheffield

Megs seems to be having a splendid time at Uni in Sheffield -
Not that I have much photographic evidence -
However today she went to a walk with friends Katie and Amber - 
and she treated me to a group selfie.

Green Belt

Ben's been going to Judo lessons since he was 8.

He may never be a world class fighter 
{he may never actually win a fight by an ippon}

But today at Judo Camp he graded onto green.

Perseverance pays off!


Visiting Megs

Megs plan for this weekend was to visit best friend Jamie at her Uni  in York -
but when Jamie went home for the weekend - 
a slot opened up for us to pop over the hills
{and deliver a LOT of quorn for her freezer}
so armed with a freshly baked chocolate cream cake -
we shot over the Snake Pass.

We had coffee student style perched on her bed
drove her to collect a parcel, then into town.

Fed her at Cafe Rouge -
bought her books and hot chocolate at Waterstones
and took her back to her flat.
Before she threw us out once again!

Good times!

A Streetcar named Desire

To take my mind off Megs departure -
I had an amazing theatre evening with my wonderful friend Kathie -

We saw the divine Maxine Peake
{our new best friend - see pic below}
in A Streetcar named Desire

It had been completely sold out -but when the set was finalized a few tickets were realised -
and honestly - I think we had the best view in the theatre!

And then she was a student....

Sunday 18th September 2016

In the morning we all went to Church as usual -


but afterwards we went home to pack up the car - 


and by half past three we were at Megan's new home -
the Endcliffe student village at the University of Sheffield.



We unpacked - I helped her make her bed -
we took a few photographs -
and by 5 o'clock she had kicked us out -
ready for her University Adventure.

We drove home over the hills -
full of pride and excitement  and just a few tears.

Just over eighteen years -and she's grown up and moved out - 
it barely seems possible.

Have the most amazing time Megan <3 font="">
