Hermione seems to be back to her usual "directional" self and the holidays have once again resumed. Isaac now seems a bit under the weather but no sickness as yet. I'm sure it won't be long.
Our weekend was spent partying. On Saturday we went to Oak Farm Park for a party and on Sunday we watched William the Wizard at a party in Ibstock. Both were brilliant and a good time was had by all. Only April was invited to the party on Saturday at the Farm, so I paid the entrance fee for Noel and Hermione and took them along too. Stuart stayed at home with the twins as it was just too hot for him/them. On Sunday we all went. William the Wizard was brilliant and he did some "adult" magic tricks too while the children were eating. It was amazing!

On Monday we went to the annual scarecrow festival at Heather. We go every year and we always have a great time. We took a picnic and we had a visit to the park, it was such a lovely day and for only a few pounds. The villagers work so hard to make the scarecrows and to make it an event for everyone to enjoy - even Noel said that it was the best ever festival and he isn't easily impressed!
I've not seen "Frozen" but there were lots and lots of "Olaf" scarecrows about. It seems to be the film of the year.

Having fun on the slide - Sam is quite fearless and will often go down by himself front facing ...

We're off to the swimming pool today - I only have to pay for myself as Noel and April are free through school and Hermione is free as she is under 5. The twins are staying at home with my mum, I'm not that brave!
We are really enjoying our "Summer Holidays on a Shoestring".
Lots of love, Jemma, Stuart, Noel, April, Hermione, Samuel and Isaac x x x x x x x
