Jolly June....

Katy Armstrong

Hello there! June didn't quite start off as we had hoped! After a couple of enjoyable days in half term the small one came down with the dreaded Chicken Pox!! I am thankful that we have not got them out of the way but that meant we were house bound for the rest of the week, missing days out, a birthday party and going back to nursery.  Once the worst of it was over we headed out to South Bay to take part in a beach clean! BEACH CLEAN I've previously talked about the rubbish which gets left on Scarborough...

April has been one busy month, full of both work and play. We started off with Easter weekend, this was great fun as it is the first year that the small one has actually understood what was going on (well, at least the bunny and eggs bit!). So we had our first Easter egg hunt and I'm not sure who had the most fun - me putting it all together or her looking for them all! This year BCTF also fell during the Easter holidays so although I was busy getting ready for the vent we still managed to squeeze in...
