Yesterday was 22 degrees and we had promised the three youngest children we would have a little treat in the evening. We decided to light the fire pit, toast marshmallows and try out making s'mores like the Americans do. We had bought the little fire pit two summers ago but had never used it as last summer was rubbish weather. The logs had got damp too but with a firelighter they still did okay and the children huddled round and had some fun.
Today is a different matter, we had thunder and torrential rain overnight. Although it's not cold we are all indoors and I have done some work while the children did their studies.
