Hello blog, it’s been a while since I was here. I’ve missed my blog and that’s due to a lack of “me time”, not even a little “bit of me time”. I should mention the Jubilee – we loved it, and although did not see much “live”, the highlights have proved useful. We were lucky enough to go away for the Jubilee weekend, and here’s our tale..
Life in our house gets very busy just before half terms and school holidays, and last week was no exception. Husband is busier, with lighting and sound for plays, reports to write and other schooly bits. Unfortunately my job gets busier and busier at a very similar time.
It was quite “fun” (aka stressful) just getting to half term. We were due to leave as soon as we could after work, but soon realised, as day after day whizzed by, that we were not going to leave as early as planned, supper time in Wales, was not possible. So we decided to feed little ones before we set off, and arrived with enough time for them have a look around, bounce on the trampoline and get into bed. The best bit was that we knew, once little ones were in bed, we could jump into jacuzzi with a cool beer or glass white wine – or two.
It was quite a gathering of 7 adults, a 14 year old and our two smaller ones, all going to a beautiful house in Wales complete with outdoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, tennis court and trampoline. Plenty of games of hide and seek, squashed sardines and quite a bit of Jubilee watching on telly. It all culminated in a BBQ with all the Jubilee paraphernalia and loads of food.
Now back home, it’s straight into work for me, a “Daddy day” with Daughter and Son, and then back to it from Thursday onwards. Roll on summer holidays ………….
