I had an Absolutely Fabulous time, being home in England for the Olympics was fantastic, it made you proud to be British and is was wonderful to see all the public getting so invested in the sport. And of the course the Gold moments we edge of your seat exciting even if it was only edge of the sofa watching it on TV!
A few of the highlights of the trip for those who don't follow me on Facebook (sorry for those that have heard all this and waded through all my photos already)
The wedding of my cousin Anna was beautiful, a day that went smoothly with lots of happy smiling faces.
We had a "Great Big BBQ" with 50 friends and family there, followed by an impromptu "Sunday Lunch for 20 at home" that my mum and I still don't know how we managed to pull off.
We did all the touristy things in Nottingham including Nottingham Castle and a trip down the caves, Sherwood Forest and The Major Oak, Wollaton Park and more
We even had a day at Sunny Skeggy (my English friends will get a laugh from that)
Then we had a wonderful week in Brecon in South Wales with trips on a canel boat, a steam train, more caves, Red Kite feeding and a day in Cardiff where hubby and oldest son took a trip to the Dr Who Experience which was the highlight of the whole week (probably all 4 weeks ) for them
Now it's time to tackle the laundry, catch up on work and get the kids ready for school that starts on Monday, thank goodness I did all my cards before I left!

If you didn't know a "Pressie" is an English word meaning Present/Gift and as Wendy is originally from Scotland and I am from England I'm sure it makes both of us smile and think of home when we hear that.
I think Josie is being very restrained holding her Pressie, I know I'd be ripping off that pretty paper to get to the gift below.
I hope you like this
