2015 Week 4 Day 6 – Today, I finally received my order (tardy Post Office) of some gorgeous organic teas from the lovely Andy at Talisman Teas. His company sell fine Chinese and Taiwanese tea sourced from small tea farms and this organic jasmine pearl tea infused in my new mug was truly scrumptious. That […]
2015 Week 4 Day 5 – Willow is trying to be a big girl and use the toilet. Perhaps the smarties treats are helping motivate her 😉 Of course, she still finds time to shout. As ever, i am amazed at the size of all my kids’ tonsils!!
2015 Week 4 Day 4 – As we were all feeling jaded (some from illness, another from excesses of the night before!!), we decided to get some fresh air and walk down to the local hotel for a reviving hot chocolate. Alexei took his skateboard, but was not allowed to ‘ride’ it as he was […]
2015 Week 4 Day 3 – I had another relatively quiet day today, still feeling grotty, and with my sensible head on, reluctantly cancelled our baby sitter for tonight. The children were in and out of the house due to various sports and parties, but when they were here, they decided to let loose their […]
2015 Week 4 Day 2 – I had about 13 hours sleep, but still felt ill the next morning. Luckily my husband stayed to help get the kids to school, leaving me with just Willow. We were due to meet some friends in a cafe and I thought that actually a walk down to the […]
2015 Week 4 Day 1 – I think that all the celebrations for Alexei’s birthday wore me out! I suddenly felt really tired and a bit sick and headachey, the day after he turned 7. So, after getting Willow to bed I decided I felt how she looked here, and followed suit….. …and took myself […]
2015 Week 3 Day 7 – The day is finally here and Alexei turned 7! What an exciting birthday and he enjoyed every minute of it. School where he was the centre of attention, a fun drama class and then a meal out with his us, his immediate family. And of course, his presents and […]
2015 Week 3 Day 6 – A very frosty day today, but safely inside Alexei practised his violin, in a very laid back style!!
2015 Week 3 Day 5 – Even though it has turned really cold, there are signs of spring. Snowdrops growing on verges on the side of the road and new shoots bursting though in gardens. I also took a shot of our dog in her usual position! She is very old and spends most of […]
2015 Week 3 Day 4 – The morning after the sleepover went well and Alexei’s friends seemed to leave happy and he was on good form all day too. In the afternoon Paul took the youngest kids out for a play whilst Barnaby and I stayed in, keeping warm and he did homework whilst I […]
