We entered a team in the Dragon Boat Racing at the country fair. We never do well – we’d probably perform better if we paddled backwards but it’s good fun and we were racing money for The Max Appeal which supports children with DiGeorge Syndrome – a worthy course.
Loving my summer twist on a French manicure – really pleased with them.
Both children have been poorly for a few days with high temperatures and a loss of appetite – both slept with me that night. Jon had the sense to sleep on the sofa!
We picked up Beau’s birthday present ready for the weekend – it is just perfect for her with it’s little basket on the front.
#selfie – need I say more!
On Saturday we went to a birthday party – Wyn was delighted because he could play with a balloon uninterrupted.
Sunday was Beau’s 4th birthday! We had her party at the hotel after we abandoned plans to have it in the village park due to awful weather! British summer at it’s best. It was a great afternoon and the last minute bouncy castle was perfect she had an amazing day.
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!
What can I say I have a girlie girl despite my best efforts! I now embrace it knowing that she is tough as old boots and loves getting dirty!
‘What the Ladybird Heard’ by Julia Donaldson is a firm favourite of Wyn’s – I think this author is simply fabulous.
My boy is so cool – enough said.
My heart nearly melted in the car when Wyn said ‘hand’ to Beau – they rode the entire journey holding hands.
My brother-in-law has turned 40. Jon and I flew out for his birthday bash which was great fun – a weekend sans kiddies! This was his birthday shirt curtosey of my lovely sister.
I had my nails done in a super sparkly party style – just remembered to snap a pic!
