I'm Back!

SInce the best part of 2 months have passed, I thought I should add another post. Recapping on the whole of my life would be a little dull, so I thought I would concentrate on holidays. In mid- July, we went to the Isles of Scilly. We stayed on St Mary's and it really was an amazing place. The Scilly Isles are about 30 miles off the Cornwall coast and are beautiful. We flew over by helicopter, which Daniel loved and cried when he realised we weren't going back on! It is really like another world, where people leave parked cars with the windows down and are generally very trusting. It is also very quiet - at 9am on a hot day, we went down to the main beach and were the only family there; by 11am there were 3 families. Just beautiful - but pretty exclusive - we could only go as Neil's parents were so generous. The whole thing left us pretty chilled out and Daniel loved the beach... photos to follow.

And now I am just back from another island - I was a leader on an Urban Saints holiday on Westbrook, Isle of WIght. it is actually a long time since I have been involved on a camp with children and young people that I don't know, and I had a wonderful time. It was so good to be part of a team and lots of fun to get to know the children and young people. Daniel loved it as our room was next door to the meeting room, which held drums. From 6.15am, he was demanding to go to the 'ums'... although we mamanged to keep him off them until at least 7.30am! They must have loved us...

And on Friday I am taking a group to Greenbelt, which should be excellent, both because of the event and the people that I am going with. The forecast looks good too...
