Today was Wayne's birthday so the day begun with present and card opening helped a little by Millie.
Later, we set off for a short break in Wales. After delays on the motorway due to accidents and increased traffic diverted from the Old Severn Bridge which was closed for roadworks, we finally crossed from England into Wales.
After settling into our holiday home, birthday celebrations continued with cake.
I agreed some time ago, after much nagging, that Lara could have her ears pierced for a second time during the school summer holidays. Today was the first day of the holidays so I was kept to my word and off we went to town to get them done. This photo was taken shortly afterwards and the nervous look on her face is strangely exactly the same as the first time she had her ears pierced.
This afternoon I harvested some of the produce from our greenhouse. Don't be fooled! These are not Aubergine but rather purple chilli peppers and very small cherry tomatoes. The purple chilli peppers are a first for us and we are yet to taste them to see how hot they are.
