Acacia prepared for us all. She made all of the bunting, paper chain and other decorations herself (with the help of the printer lol) and made a VE Day picnic for us to eat in the garden, which included WW2 ration foods such as carrot cookies and cheese whirls.

Jennifer was learning about the different styles of art as her homeschooling topic, so she did some pop art style pictures. One is of Winston Churchill on the side window and then a spitfire scene on the front along with some symbols. On the front lawn we had a Battle of Britain Bear.

Hi Guys just had delivered an exercise bike so as to complement my bike.
Now have no excuse not to exercise in bad weather! Also in this sunny weather the garden has never looked so tidy! 
A picture of my wood burning stove my son who lives in a flat in Stockholm loves to be cosy in front of an open fire.
So have sent him a video of 20 minutes of a burning fire to look at in the winter months!
Keep safe warm and healthy everybody.
