Fun in the sun

Wow hasn’t it been a hot one this week? My social media feeds have been full of sunny scenes; blue skies, paddling pools, ice creams and lots of smiles. There has also been plenty of moaning about the heat which amuses me given that a week ago many of us were moaning about our lack of summer. But hey, we’re British and moaning about the weather is just what we do. Plus it has been seriously hot!

So what else to do than to try and find ways of keeping cool. Fans in bedrooms, ice on temples, ice lollies, oh and of course playing with water in the garden. I love our garden, we’ve put in a tonne of effort to get to this point and now it just such a lovely place to be. I also really love our gazebo as it provides us with some much needed shade on these hot hot days. Because pictures speak louder than words, ¬†instead of rambling on, I will show you how much fun we’ve been having outside this week.PhotoGrid_1468993911685PhotoGrid_1468995883162PhotoGrid_1468994909082PhotoGrid_1468995676426

So at the end of a summers day this is what my garden should like. Covered in abandoned toys, with sand and water everywhere. Miscellaneous items of clothing and towels strewn across chairs to dry and just general detritus left about. Evidence of a lot of fun had outside, and evidence that I have enjoyed it as much as my kids have rather than constantly cleaning up after them.


Are you enjoying our little heatwave?

  1. There is nothing finer than seeing your little ones play in water in the garden. We’ve had the paddling pool out a few times this week and it’s lovely to hear them splashing and squealing in delight. Hope you continue to enjoy the sunshine over the summer x

  2. Ahhh this is like our garden at the end of the day hehe and as you say so it should be – the sign of fun and happiness. Love the sunny pics and the one with dad and the littlies is so cute. We are also melting but ice creams, paddling pool and fans are helping, I’m not moaning too much because I know it’s not going to last long! Thanks for linking up lovely #bestandworst

  3. I’m loving the weather (just wish it was cooler at night!) and we also had some water play in the garden yesterday. Love your pictures, they show perfectly how much fun you all had. Lets hope summer continues! #whatevertheweather

  4. I’m so glad to see your garden after a day in the garden, it looks similar to ours! Lots of fun memories made and debris strewn everywhere! We haven’t had that many good days yet, but fingers crossed for them to get better here too! x
