  • Tuesday, 23rd August
    Owen had a nasty cold and actually didn't want to go swimming. I was miserable myself, so we stayed home and he taught me the song, Terrible Crocodile.
  • Monday, 22nd August
    grandparents took Owen to Little Wild Things, and we then had a lovely lunch at Banbury Hill Farm. In the evening we finished Stranger Things.
  • Sunday, 21st August
    grandparents came to visit, and Owen was elated.
  • Saturday, 20th August
    we went to Witney, and Owen had a great time shopping mostly because of the Waitrose scanner.
  • Friday, 19th August
    we started watching Stranger Things on Netflix, and loving it.
