The Me And Mine Project – July 2018

The Me And Mine Project – July 2018

I’ve decided to take part in The Me And Mine Project which is run by family blogger Lucy at Dear Beautiful. People have been actively taking part in it for years and now that my blogging journey is well and truly underway, it’s something I want to get involved with each month.
Me And Mine is all about capturing the whole family together in a photograph. Lucy believes we shouldn’t wait until the perfect day or until we lose a little weight, or whatever the reason may be. She believes that what really matters is that we photograph all the memories we share and want to document as a family. That’s the whole reason I started this blog in the first place so this project is perfect.
So each month we will take a family photo of the four of us and tell you a little bit about what we’ve been up to that month.
July has been a busy month of sport, birthday parties, family events and various activities at school for the end of term. It seems everyone has been busy making the most of the heatwave.
As a family, we love watching cricket. One of the highlights of the month was the India vs England one-day international. Sukh and the kids drove down to Trent Bridge in Nottingham to watch the match. I had gone down the night before as I was working on on an outdoor broadcast for the game. Once my work was done, I was able to join them and enjoy the rest of the match.

The photo I am posting this month is of our day trip to West Midlands Safari Park. It was a hot day but we had such fun, getting there early so we could do the safari without heavy queues. We’ve been to WMSP many times but it’s always fascinating observing the animals. After a picnic, we were then free to enjoy the rest of our time watching shows and going on rides.

This month I have…

* rested and done lots of light exercise as I’ve been suffering from ongoing back trouble (maybe I’ll tell you about it some day).
* done lots of writing and working on my blog.
* enjoyed the World Cup. I didn’t miss a match!
* been watching Love Island for the first time – and I am hooked!
* loved having the patio door open from morning till night

This month Sukh has…

* been brilliant helping and looking after me!
* worked hard editing photos for my blog and on the next vlog in our Orlando series
* doing most of the school runs, which we normally share
* kept my spirits up by cracking jokes at every opportunity
* pretended he hasn’t noticed how much online shopping I’ve done

This month Shalini has…

* enjoyed online shopping for her summer wardrobe
* spent a lot of time reading
* helped me prepare the evening meals
* experienced a backstage tour of Matilda The Musical
* taken some amazing photographs of me – she’s becoming so skilled at it

This month Shivam has…

* enjoyed the World Cup and watched most matches
* spent a lot of time in the garden kicking around a football
* moved to a higher level in swimming and is doing really well
* given Mummy lots of cuddles on the sofa
* been counting down to the end of term and looking forward to the summer

    I love this challenge! It is definitely true- I feel like if we keep waiting for that perfect moment it will never come so we should capture as many memories as we can! xx

      That’s right – I saw so many people taking part in it for so long and kept putting it off because I was waiting for the ‘right time’. But the right time is whenever you want it to be x

      Thanks Lianne. I guess I always knew Dani and Jack would win so I never backed anyone else but I did have a soft spot for Laura x
