Ok, so finally I am taking the plunge!
Feels a bit weird writing this when I don't even know if anyone will read it but for now it can be my own private little pleasure!
It's bank holiday weekend here in the UK the weather is astonishing! Check out that sky!! And, lord knows how, I have managed to bag myself a kiddy free day! "How has she managed that? Jammy bugger." I here you ask.
Well, the other half has disappeared off on a family bike ride with the kids, his dad, cousin and brother and mercy me his sister wanted to go to, but she had no bike!! "H can't miss out!" say I, "I'll stay at home and she can use my bike." (mischeiveous sideways glances at this point) "Are you sure?" says other half. "Oh, yes" says I innocently and full of sisterly generosity...... and so double bonus! No hard slog 10 mile bike ride, (we live in the Chiltern hills here people, nothing easy about it!!)and Kiddy free house/garden! Hooray!! I almost felt like doing a little dance as they disappeared down the driveway.
My mum is appearing shortly to help me turn my weed collection, see below, into something vaguely resembling flower beds and lawn!! And then, when the Kiddies etc return, we are heading on up to my parents for a big family BBQ where I don't have to cook or anything!! BLISS!!
We were very busy yesterday putting the final touches to the childrens "Mail Swap" that the girls signed up for, organised by the lovely Christie. Here are the little parcels ready (apart from stamps) to wing their way to the various corners of the globe.
Do you like the little address labels? I got them here, free downloads are such fun!! And here we have the first of ours that arrived already!(someone's a lot more organised than me!!) minus several of the stickers which have already found new homes!
Right guys, gonna have to go as mum has turned up armed with her arsenal of gardening equipment! Wish me luck!! Will keep you all posted.
Thanks for reading!
