Post Comment Love 2nd - 4th September

Welcome to the last Post Comment Love of the summer! How has it been for you? Are you ready for the kids going back to school?

That’s it people, summer is almost at an end. In 3 days the boys will be back at school, I’ll be back into a routine, and the house will be quiet during the day.

This year I have mixed feelings about the end of summer, I’ve enjoyed our time with the boys and spending time together as a family was priceless. But for at least a week now I’ve been looking forward to the boys being back at school. Their bickering is more annoying, they have less patience with each other, and I have less patience with them. Six weeks is a long time and it’s been rather tiring planning days out and arranging time for work too. We’re all ready for a change.

I’m definitely looking forward to some peace and quiet. Driving home after school drop off, making a hot coffee and being able to drink that coffee while listening to the news uninterrupted sounds dreamy right now. 

Planning our weekly meals and knowing we’ll be home to eat them is something else I’m looking forward to. I’ve done a lot of eating over these holidays and have gained far too much weight. My stomach has been complaining for a while and I’ll be happy to get back to healthy eating again. I may not get back down to 10 stones but if I can lose some I’ll be happy.

Even though we didn’t go on holiday this year the summer has been great. The boys have enjoyed trips to historical buildings, exploring and trekking through woodland, and watching orang-utans swing and play at Chester Zoo. We’ve had time at home watching movies and playing board games. BP celebrated his 12th birthday and the boys have had time at home to play their iPad and Xbox games. 

I have taken hundreds of photos during the summer capturing memories from the times they enjoyed themselves and some from the times they threw tantrums. Choosing just one photo that represents our whole summer could prove difficult. But that’s what I’m going to do.


Summer Collage


That brings me to Steph’s and my idea for this week. Instead of Blogger Showcase we’re asking you guys to send us your favourite photo from the summer. It could be you and your family enjoying a day out, at a restaurant, or even enjoying some time at home together. Send your photo, your name and your blog URL to postcommentlove@gmail.com and Stephanie and I will put together a Summer Collage and share it with you all next week. We’ll link back to everyone who sends us a photo. 


Blogger Showcase


We’re still looking for wonderful bloggers to feature in our Blogger Showcase which will be starting the week after we’ve shared our Summer Collage. If you’re interested in being featured get in touch with us via the post comment love email above or give us a shout on Twitter. Anyone is welcome and we’d love to showcase each and every one of you!


PoCoLo


Each week you'll be able to link up from either of our sites and between us Stephanie and I will comment on every post linked.

The rules; Link up your best post written in the last week and we'd like you to comment on at least two other linked posts, as well as the hosts. 

Help us spread the #PoCoLo word on Twitter and include the badge on your post.

If you'd like to be featured in our Newbie Showcase please do email us at PostCommentLove@gmail.com.

Thank you for popping by.

  1. Goodmorning Morgan, where does the time go? It only feels like yesterday that the schools were finishing for summer. My daughter still has just over a week to go before she goes back, but the having a daily routine will be good for us all.

    The summer collage sounds like a nice idea, and it made me realise that I don't have one single family photo of the summer! So sad, but it never occurs to me to get photos of the family, but if I see a creature I'm there!

    Have a fab Friday and thank you for hosting.

    1. The funny thing about not getting a photo Debbie is that you were so "in the moment" that a photo didn't matter. Although you don't have anything to look at you have the memories of actually being there. :)
      My boys are back today, it's lovely and peaceful in the house and I'm glad to have the first day of routine, but I'll miss them. :)

  2. I will be sifting through my photo's! I don't want summer to end. I hate the early darkness the most. I don't care about the cold, just the dark mornings and nights.x

  4. The summer has been very long and drawn out, however it is almost time to get back to normal! Mini Me returned to school yesterday and it pained me to have to set my alarm again, so am hoping on a decent lie in tomorrow! Glad you have all had a fab time in the most part, Chester Zoo is always a nice day out! Love the idea of a summer collage, will have a look through and send an image over! Thank you for hosting and allowing me to link up! Sim xx

  6. I was dreading this summer with my husband being away and having two kids to entertain all by myself but I've actually had a great time and we've had some really lovely days out. That being said I am looking forward to getting some form of routine back!

    1. It's tough on us isn't it? The lack of routine is the biggest thing and as my boys go back to school I'm breathing a sigh of relief. We were all ready. xx

  7. I'll send you a photo as long as i remember to do so in the next few days. I returned to school last week and haven't drunk a hot drink since, i'm just too busy during term time, looking forward already to the winter break
