Summer moments and memories


This summer, well, what we’ve had of summer, we joined in with the Roberts Bakery #softandfluffy challenge to record some of our fun times in a memory jar.

Here are a few…..

A Dad and lad day out at the footy, The Duncan Ferguson Testimonial, a true  Everton legend. They had a fantastic day in a fabulous atmosphere and seats right on the pitch side, perfect.


The teens absolutely loved their day out at GungHo giant inflatable obstacle course. It was a lovely sunny  day and a fantastic challenge, even Dad joined in.

Closer to home this time, with great friends at a canal side barbecue. Lucky again, as it was  another hot and sunny day.


Last, but not least, was a bunny hunt, not really the teen’s cup of tea but this was an added bonus to a walk around Norton Priory walled garden.

It’s been good fun recording and sharing our summer moments, add yours to Roberts Bakery on Facebook

Talk about it Tuesday 25/8/15

I was talking with my friend today who is worrying about her little boy starting school next week, he’s a great little boy and I’m sure he will have no issue at all, in fact the issues are all hers.

These days we worry so much about choosing a school, when I was a child we all went to the local school and the only choice that had to be made was wether you chose church school or not.

The was our experience………..

Is finding your dream school just pure luck

In 1997 we moved house. We chose our house on all the usual criteria, location, size, big sunny garden all the usual dream features, of course we didn’t need to worry about school as being 37 and my other half 42 It wasn’t our concern. Haha little did we know! In 2000 our son was born and so it began. continue

Boating, barbecues and beautiful buddleia

I’m sitting looking out on a thunderstorm and cannot believe the change in the weather, we’re still in August!

It was just over a week ago the sun was shining for our boat club barbecue, which was held at our moorings.


We started the preparations with some bunting, we had recently finished painting the Pergola and added planting to an empty trough to finish it off.

I’m not known for my gardening skills so I let Suttons decide what plants would look good in the raised planter, the Petite Buddleia fits in perfectly.

We had a fab barbecue and we showed off our moorings to perfection.


Thanks to Suttons for the donation of some plants.
