The weeks are flying by and so with two poorly children and a day of Disney I have taken the time to catch up!
There are a few big events coming up in the village in the next couple of months – first will be the opera and then after that we have the fete. Much more excitingly than those however is that my boy turned two this week!
Two cute pics of my bubbas and a fabulous manicure for me round up this week! We were away for the weekend celebrating a 40th birthday so party nails were the order of the day!
Managed to get my hair sorted – no more grey for seven weeks!
We have a toad that lives near our front door and this little frogy chap by our back door. Quite the place for amphibians to hang out.
Look how he concentrates – this is just before the game was destroyed and it takes rather a long time to set up!
They wanted to sleep together, sleep took rather a long time coming but eventually bliss!
We went to Camp Bestival on Saturday with the kids and it is a truly family friendly festival. Expensive no doubt but a fabulous day out – we will be back.
Sunday marked the start if opera week in the village. We were in the church late setting up.
This year’s opera is Don Giovanni and the performers came from all over the world to take part.
It is amazing what such a tiny village can achieve – it was a great success roll on 2016!
My sister is over from Ireland for their annual summers holiday – it is lovely for our children to have this time together.
This week was full of celebrations two important birthdays for two important ladies. We also went on our first family camping trip. Going to with two other crazy families was amazing after days of rain the weather took a turn for the better and the sun shone for us. Happy memories banked!
I couldn’t resist this picture of Jon – why do cats always pick the person who is the most allergic to them to snuggle up to?
Beau lost a ballet shoe on the first night of her performance at the theatre – I haven’t replaced them yet, I am still hoping it will magically appear. I had so wanted to keep her very first pair of ballet slippers.
The posters are coming together for Don Giovanni which we are putting on this Summer in the village – with professionals doing the singing naturally!
This little chap was having a good nose over the fence at us and what a beauty he is.
Another image from the opera weekend.
I came downstairs to find Wyn enjoying storytime with Grandad – so sweet.
Beau had such a lovely time at the birthday party this morning – she loved decorating the glasses and of course posing for a picture afterwards!
