It’s Been a While!

Yes, it’s been a while since I last posted anything but we have been quite busy!

Firstly my eldest started secondary school! Yes that’s right my eldest son now catches the bus everyday to the secondary school of his choice! He’s grown up so quickly but i am very proud of his achievements so far in life.

That was the main event for September but we’ve also been extremely busy decorating and to be honest i lost a little motivation in writing and blogging. i have had so much to keep me busy including work but now i am back.

Christmas was a little dodgy with our favourite pet Stan being ill. He decided to get a stomach upset, or so we thought, on Christmas Eve, which led to him being hospitalised for several days and subsequently costing us lots of money. He went back in again at the end of January and although we thought it may be to do with his age it turned out that his thyroid was completely shot to bits.

Stan however is now back to normal if not better than normal. He started taking thyroid medication and he is a completely different dog. It’s almost like he has reverted back to being a puppy, full of energy and bounce again. If you have a labrador yourself and you thing their age is catching up with them yours may have a similar problem as it’s extremely common.

Anyway, since that rigmarole we’ve been on holiday again! This time a short trip to Brittany to Domaine des Ormes campsite. There are plenty of posts to follow on this subject as we visited many great places during our trip.

We’ve also booked our family holiday for the summer which is another story.

Anyway my ramblings will return shortly!!!

Another Day in Devon

It’s been a lovely day down here in Devon again today!

Glorious sunshine flooded through my windows when I woke this morning at 6am.

I got up and had a great drive to work in the beautiful sunshine.

Later on in the morning whilst out and about I got the chance to visit one of my favourite spots on Dartmoor being Fernworthy Reservoir near to Chagford. 

 

  

 It’s a beautiful spot where a large reservoir is surrounded by woodland.

 

 With no cloud or haze today I could see for miles in all directions. The road leading to the reservoir normally has a view of the National Trust property Castle Drogo although for the last year or so it’s been covered in white tarpaulins due to renovations.

If you’re looking for a tranquil place for a summers walk I can highly recommend it!

Where to go camping in France?

Well it’s that time of year again, when we start to look at where to go on holiday. After our trip to Gran Canaria last year we’ve decided to head back to our favourite type of holiday but are we are still unsure where to go camping in France this year.

There are plenty of campsites all throughout France and after having a chat with DevonMum and the three boys we’ve come up with some great ideas.
