For George's birthday day out this year Katy chose (with some help from us as we'd found a discount voucher tee hee) a day at Chessington. We had a blast. It was really quiet so we managed to get on everything we wanted, including some pretty scary roller coasters with Katy.

For the last two weeks blogger has locked me out. Not that I have much to say, September has been all about getting into the routines of a new school year and coping with the changes in homework levels. With homework and after school activities life has been pretty hectc. Katy is coping well but I am still adjusting.
I've no photos to share but have a bunch of layouts, so here are a few for now.

There's nothing quite like a beach in windy weather. We went to Narin beach on our second day in Donegal, and the rain stopped just long enough for us to have a paddle. Katy loved the wide open spaces, and paddling in the sea of course. It wasn't as cold as I expected it to be, which was a blessing as I expected it to be freezing!

The first evening in Donegal was beautiful. We were able to sit out in the back garden until after 10pm, annd the light was perfect for photos. We were so envious of my aunt and uncle's surroundings, all these photos were taken within a 5 minute walk of their house.

and for once I took a load of photos. In all the past holidays in Ireland I have taken maybe 10 shots in total, whereas this trip I have somehow ended up with a few hundred. A warm sunny evening and a trip to Donegal helped enormously. These photos are from last Saturday night, when Mum, Katy and I went out for an early dinner and decided to go for a walk after eating along the Strand and into Burgess Park. Katy had new sandals (her 'heels' - they have a 1/4 inch 'heel') so she was happy to pose for a while.

... and once we had our first days off from work and holiday club we headed into London for the day. Katy has a long list of activities she would like to try this summer, and Borough Market and the Tate gallery were our first stops. We bought lots of yummy stuff in the market and had a picnic on the grass beside Southwark cathedral. We finished as the rain started so we wandered along the riverbank by the Thames to the Tate.

We went to Epcot today and had booked a lunch with the princesses in the Norway section. Katy really enjoyed this, especially meeting Mary Poppins.
