By July we'd finally moved in to our new house and unpacked most of our things.
We'd also started to explore the town and surrounding area.
Em was getting a lot more mobile now – she could crawl quite easily, and was experimenting more and more with standing up. Sometimes she'd make quite a scene of it.
July also marked a long heatwave – not a cloud to be seen for weeks on end, so much so that trees and grass were dying.
As the month drew to a close, the skies clouded over and the rain came at last, restoring the parched flora.
