Goodness!  I can't believe it's been almost a week since my last post.  I do apologise.  Last week was just crazy busy!!

Here it is in pictures

Hubby celebrated a birthday on Wednesday, so Monday and Tuesday were busy spent wrapping gifts and getting a cake etc.

Collin the Caterpillar, chosen by little miss

 A handmade gift, all our hand prints

Wednesday also saw us head up to the City for the Olympics

Luckily the rain held off

No10 was festooned in colourful bunting

Horse Guards Parade and the Mall where the Beach Volley Ball was staged

Admiralty Arch

The Olympic countdown clock now displays the date and time

Nelson wearing a rather colourful hat!

The fourth column at Trafalgar Square

Flags flying

A fab day was had by all.

The end of the week was spent enjoying the garden and staying at Mum and Dads whilst hubby did some much needed decorating.

On Sunday we headed for Waverley again for a stroll in the GlOrIoUs morning sunshine

Some sweet black calves in the field next to the river

Pretty wildflowers

and fading Cow Parsley

Hope you've all had a lovely week and made the most of the sunshine
