Making the most of the Summer


I haven’t been in at the Q much lately as I have been trying to spend time with my family this summer.  We haven’t been away on a two week holiday but I have spread the hols out so we have had a few breaks and day trips.

We went to Norway, at the beginning of the month, for a week with friends, to the south of the country to visit an archipelago called Hvaler.  It was lovely and we had a smashing time just sitting around and relaxing. We were lucky enough to have a few days of pretty nice weather and so went swimming in the sea around some of the islands, BBQing and some tourist trips around.

I was back at work for a few days and then off again. This time my wife couldn’t get off work so I took the kids and one of their friends camping in Norfolk.

Back at work for a few more days and then off for a few more. Nothing special planned but we will have to start thinking about back to school stuff soon so probably a few trips to the shopping centre.

Whatever you’ve got up to, so far, this summer, I hope it was a good one.
