I’m still playing catch up somewhat with our holiday diary, but at the same time I’m determined to make sure I don’t miss a day. Day 7, Wednesday, was one of those days where we didn’t do a huge amount, but when we did do things we seemed to be so involved in it that there weren’t many photos.
Most of the day was spent at home with the kids, save for a precious couple of hours in the afternoon when my MIL came round to look after the children for a couple of hours whilst I went to Welwyn and spent a John Lewis gift voucher that she’d bought me for my birthday. It was very strange being out on my own, and even more strange shopping for myself. I kept finding myself seeing things and thinking how much Master C or Little Miss C would like them.
In the end I came home with a Cath Kidston sewing book, a new notebook, a pretty storage box and also a very pretty tin from the John Lewis 150 years collection. I also kept a bit back so that when I’ve planned exactly what my first project is going to be in my new crafty cabin I can buy some fabric too.
The plan for Wednesday evening had been to meet Mr C in Harpenden to go to Classics on the Common with him. This annual event basically involves loads and loads of classic cars being brought to the common and the public being able to wander round and look at them all. Sadly, Mr C had to go to a work thing in London, so instead I took the kids and met up with the in-laws too. It was a lovely evening, and a beautiful day weatherise too which certainly helped to draw the crowds. Trying to keep in control of two little ones was a bit tough – hence the lack of photos of classic cars! Master C seemed to love seeing the cars themselves – and shouting “car” or “wheel” at every possible opportunity. LMC wasn’t as thrilled by the cars, but did seem to enjoy her ice cream and also spending some time with her Grumps. And, rather surprisingly, it seems that the stickers you were given for making a charity donation on the way in provided plenty of entertainment!
