Half Term

It's gone sooooooo quick, all but tomorrow's teacher training day and the boys are back at school again.

We've had a good week though, Alex spent a couple of hours in Hi5 club at David Lloyd on Monday which included fun tennis & swimming, we had friends round, spent a session at Timbuk2, went down to Kent to catch up with old friends, went to a birthday party with a fab entertainer and spent the day at Marsh Farm with Nannie!

Nicholas loved feeding the sheep ....

And Alex loved seeing the pigs and baby piglets!

All that's left to do now is tear Alex away from playing tennis or is that bowling on the Wii to do some more homework!

Lover's day....

In true romantic style, even after 7 years together (is it REALLY that long)!??!?!? my man did me proud and after waking up to breakfast in bed, I had a gorgeous bouquet of pink roses arrive!

Thank you darling, love you too :)

Happy Birthday Mum!

It was Mum's birthday last week and after picking both boys up from school, we shot over to Southend with a cake and pressies. Not that Mum actually managed to open that many, as somehow wrapping paper and small boys go quite well together.... as do birthday cakes and blowing out the candles!

Hope you had a good one Mum.

Frosty the Snowman

Lee had always promised Alex that if we ever had enough snow one time, that he would take time off work and build a snowman with him.... that's exactly what he did on Monday, so when the boys came home from school, Lee was waiting for them and after a few snowball fights, Mr Wobbly was built in the garden!

Due to the influx of snow and the fact the Met Office are prediciting more on Friday, the school Quiz night has been postponed - new date to follow.

Drinky time!

Happy Birthday Rachel!

It was one of best friends' birthday on Friday and on Saturday, despite being 30 odd weeks preggers, I joined the hardened drinkers in Leigh and had a good night out with the girls.

Granted I was home by 9.30pm, but apparently some didn't roll in until 3.30am!!!!!

Dirty stop outs.....
