Today I have been mostly eating yummy food Matt has cooked, seeing a good friend and looking at stunning pictures of Marakesh. Designing our Christmas cards and looking at beauty advent calenders and thinking how lovely but how expensive. I have been learning how to use Google talk, trying to not feel ridiculous doing so, and doing my best to… Read more →
Here is a picture of Donna taking Annie-Mo and Bruce, Elsie’s best friend for a walk. Annie-mo looks so cute. We had a lovely walk and then sat on a bench in a field to eat chocolate Danishes. A golden lab retriever came and stole Annie’s Danish right out of her hand. I couldn’t help laughing at her expression of… Read more →
Tonight was the opening of our new local,The Devonshire Place. Matt and I bobbed by in between scouts drop off and pick up to check out what was on offer. The bar is the first thing that you come across when you enter. To the left are shelves containing bottles of beer and to the right a bay window seating… Read more →
I am sat, instilled in a rare moment of peace. Annie is asleep, Matt is working, Sophie is at a friends, Felix is at music club and Jay won’t be home till later. The house is silent apart from at quiet bubble of eggs on the stove and the hum the fridge cooling down. From where I am sat at… Read more →
Today Nanty Nina visited bringing yummy treats for the whole family. Annie was particularly enamoured with the almond croissants but was still happy to share with Nanty Nina.
Here is a picture of my biggest child and my littlest child. Annie had her arm wrapped around Felix’s leg and they stood like that by the door for ages. The sight made my heart feel full of warmth and love.
The time for clearing is upon me yet again. This time it’s getting serious. All my old set lists, writings, big snuggley grey boots, all heading towards the door. I would like a massive skip and then I could just bin the lot and it would be gone before I can change my mind. I have been a bit sneaky… Read more →
Our house is full. Full of my things, Matt’s things, the children’s things and things from both our parents houses. I often try to clear some of it but that just seems to leave space for more stuff to enter. On Sunday I bought lots of boxes to hide some of the stuff in. Whilst filing the stuff into the… Read more →
I made a chicken pie which Sophie decorated for me with love.
One morning, Jaygo and I borrowed a couple of bicycles from our hotel and cycled through Sal Hashesh. It was a lovely activity and a great way to sightsee. The road was empty and we cycled until all that was in front of us were building sites, then we cycled back. One area we passed, near the marina, had it’s… Read more →
Today is Remembrance Sunday, the day when we remember those who have given their lives in times of conflict. Often a poppy is purchased, the money going to the British Legion charity and worn as a show of respect. The poppy symbol comes from when soldiers used to eat and fill their pockets with poppy seeds. Afterwards when they fell… Read more →
Annie likes of Jaygo and Sophie to wheel her around in her dolly buggy. She looks so cute and we all laugh to see her whizzing around in it. This photo reminds me of a scene from Lilliput with Jay in the role of Gulliver.
Now that the weather has turned wet and windy my washing can no longer be hung outside to dry. Instead it resides flung over banisters and towel airers in the hope it will dry before getting smelly. All the landings look like a Chinese laundry and there is a feeling of having to fight through the washing to get from… Read more →
Sophie, Annie and I spotted a gorgeous rainbow on the way home today.
Annie and her friend Ozzie had a wonderful time at Harrogate and Knaresborough Toy Library’s outdoor play session. At £3 a session they really are very good value. The sun shone and it was the perfect day to spend some time outside playing in mud and water and generally having a fantastic time. Annie and Ozzie borrowed waterproofs and wellies… Read more →
