Summer Holidays

So the UK summer trip is finally here, we've been in Kent for just over a week and we're having a wonderful time! Mary got her Visa (after much drama) and is here with us too. Both she and Annabelle are a bit taken aback by the cooler weather but are slowly getting used to a British summer. Poor BabyBelle was crying every time we undressed her or changed her nappy for the first few days and had goosebumps all over.

So far there has been blue skies...



...and dinosaurs...



...and castles....



...and choir boys....



...and palaces...



...and cuddles...



...and coats for the first time....



...and learning how to do headers...



...and more cuddles...



...and new friends....









...and old friends....









...and Nintendo DS marathons...



...and Mary's Famous Chicken Curry for dinner in England...



....and finally, a swarm of bees who came down the chimney and took up residence in one of the bedrooms on Friday!



All that after only 9 days! Leigh will be arriving on Wednesday morning and staying until we leave on the 24th July, so we will all be in the UK together for the first time in 19 months! An exciting and busy couple of weeks ahead.

hey you, hope you get this- I haven't got your email address!!
I'm so sorry, have had to cancel the blimmin knitting course-only one person turned up last week and we are running at a loss on it as it is-we have to have 5 people minimum to break even in order to pay the teachers.
On a happier note I am definitely up for the sewing course-how cool!! wheat date does it start? I am off on tuesday but hopefully we can catch up soon?anna x
