July – Goodyear Driving Academy

My son was picked to go on a young driver lesson at the Goodyear Driving Academy. I was so impressed with his skills at driving a car for the first time ever – he didn’t stall once! He did better than me on my first lesson.

August – Our Wedding Day Flashback

I discovered a write up of our wedding day on my computer which I wrote shortly after we got married on 5th August 2009. I thought it would be nice to share it on my blog. It was also fab to read back about my thoughts on that day.


September – Our Weekend in Romney Sands

A blog post which was split over lots of smaller ones. We had an awesome time with my sister and her family in a caravan for the weekend. It might have been autumn, but the weather was lovely and we spent a lot of time on the beach across the road.
