Today the summer officially ended when the kids went back to school. I have to say that I'm gutted. I've had a lovely summer. We've had some amazing adventures that have been interspersed with late nights and lazy days camped out in our awesome SoulPad den in the garden.
We've giggled, we've laughed and we've sung along to Sia, Iggy Azalea and Beyoncé till we've been banned from paying music with our men folk in the car.
We've cooked, we've camped, we've paddled in the sea, we've seen Johnny (fucking) Marr and we've spent late nights and damp tent moments with real friends. Real, honest friends.
The summer has been so epic that I couldn't cut it down to a single pic. There's simply been too many memories that needed acknowledging.

I don't think I've ever been so sad that the summer is over. This year I am truly grateful that I am able to work from home whilst enjoying time with my family.
Camp Bestival, was without a doubt a major highlight for the girls and for me. Biba had an amazing opportunity as an official teen blogger and totally rose to the occasion, snapping some truly awesome pics of Johnny Marr for me (I may have told her that I wasn't taking her home if she didn't).
At the weekend our summer den is closing for the season as we'll be packing our beloved bell tent up for the winter..... Or maybe we can squeeze just one more weekend of fun in, what do you think?
