Last night, we capped off our busy day with mac and cheese for dinner, a church meeting for Mr Mallon, and bedtime stories for the kids (Warrior Cats for Pippi and The Boy, and The Deathly Hallows for Betsy). Then a bit of pre-bedtime Buffy the Vampire Slayer for Mr Mallon and I.
Today, we have been partaking in a bit of summer holiday fun. We met up with some friends at Formby Beach. It was overcast and rather windy, but I don’t think I’ve ever been to a Merseyside beach when it wasn’t windy, and at least we didn’t need towels and suncream and all that sunny weather jazz. It was lovely seeing our friends who we haven’t seen for a little while as they have been busy over the holidays.
There has also been quite a lot of Minecrafting happening during downtime around here, and a new app passion, The Robot Factory.
