Something to smile about

It's not been the best of summers. That's why I have not been blogging as much as I otherwise would have. All should be fine really with the building work over, kids are happy, husband too I think, horses are fine... But there has been a continuing cause of stress in my life that I care not to write about. Not now anyway. 
The thing about kids is that on a bad day they can really test you and make you feel pretty desperate. But then I find that in moments when it feels like there isn't  anything to feel good about, they still have that amazing ability to put a smile on your face.
My little girl returned to school this week and this is the first Friday it's just me and little man again. So it's quite nice to just fuss over him without the constant arguing over toys etc. with his big sis. 
During the last week of her summer hols, I took my young lady for a day out in town and despite the rain, we had such a great time. We went to Hamley's to "build a bear"…
