The bags are packed and the hallway is full.
The children, and me, are counting the days - one and a bit to go.
Last minute lists have been made.
Importantly we have lists of things to do.
One for me and one for the children.
Sunday was a day for me to unwind and blow away the cobwebs with the children at the National Trust's Dyrham Park.
Deer were spotted and I got some time to relax.
We kicked off our shoes and felt the ground beneath our feet.
The boy ticked off no.2 from the 50 things to do... list - twice.
The bees were out and about enjoying the sunshine and the alliums.
And what better way to treat yourself after the walk back up the hill than a Marshfield Farm sorbet?
