Friday July 1 – July? No way. MeeMee is 20 this month, Luke is 14 and Grandad’s birthday is in July too. Weather is so mixed. Warm then cold, raining then dry and sunny. We have had to pop the heating on now and then too! Wales played in the Quarter Finals of Euro 16 tonight and beat Belgium 3-1! WOW! I had my first school report, and we could wear red to school to support the football!

19th July – Mummy and Lea went to London. It was over 32 degrees – the hottest day in about ten years! The train tracks were almost melting and the air con broke on their train home. People were fainting at Paddington Station but Mummy and Lea were ok – just had a journey that was hours longer than it should have been.

20th July. First proper day of our summer holidays. We realised that we had been sent the tent canopy, not the tent! Mummy contacted the company who arranged to send it for us to receive on Friday. So Mummy decided to delay our holiday until Saturday. A cloudy and grey day. Bright late afternoon and we went for walk in Saundersfoot. I had a copy of the new Bing magazine.

21 July – A mixed day, but warm. Really warm at night. Luke and I were at home getting packed and ready for our camping holiday and Mummy worked. Lea and Mum popped out for last min airbeds etc.

22 July – Mummy and Lea went with Nana and Grandad to pick up our hire car. Last minute packing. We had a quick walk and ice cream in Pembroke – it was cloudy but hot. Daddy popped downand we went to Maccy D’s for tea.

23 – 31 July – Our Camping holiday to Crealy Meadows for two nights, Salisbury Camping and Caravanning Club for three nights, and Camp Bestival for three nights.

We hope you have had a great summer!
