Another very busy week at the hotel with the continued installation of our new PMS system.
On Monday morning Wyn missed his nap and was desperate for a snooze!
I am really pleased with Beau’s birthday party invitations which arrived this week – need to send them our double quick – not long till the party!
Wednesday was ‘go live’ day and all our work paid off and our system was all online and operational by the middle of the afternoon.
Jon had what seems like a rare night off and we ended up playing jenga – must be a record breaking tower – just look at how tall it is!
Every other Friday I have a box of organic veggies delivered and they are always fabulous. This week lots of lovely salad, spring onions and spinach.
We went to a local village fete on Saturday – the weather was lovely and it was a really relaxing afternoon spent with friends. Beau loved having her face painted as a princess.
On Sunday when Jon came home from work he decided to cut Wyn’s hair! He didn’t do a bad job at all, it’s just that he looks like a proper little boy now and not my baby Wyn.
It has been a very busy week with work and home life colliding. We had an elderly family friend – 92 staying at the hotel for a few days. She never had children and so whilst wanting her to spend a little time with mine I am always acutely aware that she finds them and their childish nonsense alien in the extreme! We also had Jon’s nieces staying at our home and they adore my darling’s childish nonsense and find it completely compelling!
I meanwhile was working each day and squeezing in time with friends and their children early in the morning. Lucky to have such understanding friends.
My glass of wine on Friday night was just the job!
On Saturday we cleared out some of our baby items which have been taking up valuable space – clearly Beau is too big for the bouncing chair!
Wyn added the butter from lunch to his hair – I rather like the punk look!
A good friend’s sister was very tragically killed on Friday night in a road traffic accident. I am beyond words – it is so so sad. She was such a delight, a smile that lit up a room and a personality to match. When you hear news like this it just makes you want to squeeze your loved ones a little tighter.
It has been such a long week and I have been at work loads and yet all my pictures reflect my children – I always feel like I’m pulled in so many directions but even more so when my presence is required at the hotel day after day, all day like it is at the moment.
Beau has some new trainers and is now determined to learn to tie her own laces.
Wasn’t able to take Wyn to his swimming class on Tuesday due to work but he still gave me loads of glorious snuggles when I came home.
I purchased these hanging letters at Christmas but have decided to keep them out all year – they make me smile everytime I look at them.
Jon’s parents have dug out his toy cars from the depth of their garage for Wyn – I’m not sure who is more excited Jon or Wyn!
Beau’s hair is getting really long now but I am terrified about having it cut incase her curls disappear!
My children love to take all the cushions off the sofa and have cushion islands – I seem to remember doing the same when I was little.
Jon just managed to leave work just in time to come to the theatre with us today – we saw a production of the book ‘Room on the Broom’ by Julia Donaldson. It was fabulous – Beau found it really funny and Wyn enjoyed it up to a point but he was a bit tired and grouchy towards the end. We went out for supper and these two ‘monkey bottom faces’ were Wyn and my dinner companions – delightful!
