Yay, it’s September! Actually, I’m not really celebrating as I’m missing Andy and Daisy, but I have to admit it is nice to have a bit more time to myself during the days… while Gabriel is napping, at any rate (please don’t drop your nap, little man!)

So, I have a general catch up post so you can find out how I spent my summer. A fair bit of it was spent in getting Custom Fit ready for publication, but I made sure I took plenty of days off too. Basically, if the sun shone we made an effort to go out and do something. Sometimes that was just a walk in the countryside, but we did take a few day trips down to the seaside.

Who’d have thought a bunch of people playing “good songs moderately well on tiny toy instruments” could be so funny?! Continue reading
