A well earned break.

I decided to take a well-earned mini-break from mini-making last week so that I could spend some quality time with my son before he starts his new school. Although we didn't go to too many places or spend lots of money, we still had a lot of fun together. The sun shone all week, which was a bonus & makes it much more pleasant when walking along the local seafront. We spent a fun half hour with my partner & his son rowing around in circles on the boating lake (and getting quite wet). But I think our best day was when we went to York Maze. What a great day out!! The maze itself is actually made up of maize & as my son is a huge sweetcorn fan I had to hold him back from helping himself, LOL. We also took the tractor ride, very rough & bumpy & needless to say when I got off the trailer I had a very sore...(you can fill your own answer in there, lol).

LOL, thanks Kate. It was nice to actually spend a week not making miniatures, as much as I love making them. My son goes back to school tomorrow, he's starting at senior school, & thankfully I'm still on holiday, so I will probably spend the whole day crying, (always upsets me, first day back). But it also means I will have a full day to myself to concentrate on some new minis :o).x.

School has been in session for us now for about three weeks and I'm still reeling from the transition--it takes me at least a month or two every year! Glad you could do something with your child before he started school. I'm very close to my three, Maggie, 19 who is living home this year while going to a local college, Ben, 17 and a senior and Joanna, 10 who has spent the entire weekend with a new little friend and will be exhausted but has had a great time (she e-mailed me!).
