Weekend away.

As part of my birthday present, Andrew and the kids had booked a surprise weekend away to Dorset. We stayed in a holiday park, my idea of hell before I had kids but the prefect place now that we have three busy little people to entertain. The three day weekend was full packed with activities and discoveries. There was skiing, doughnutting, basket ball playing, fossil searching, ice cream licking, boat fantasying, the unmissable amusement spending, fish eating, go kart speeding, barbecuing, sleeping, live show watching, bingo playing, hmm, have I missed anything.. oh yes, beach strolling, sand castle making, hill walking, and lots of moaning, swimming, cooing, and stuck in the traffic I spying!!
But here are some pictures to prove it..

And if you wonder what the giraffe,( Greg is his little name) is doing on every single picture, you will have to ask Harry how he thought that bringing the school teddy with us was going to enhance our holiday break!! You don't know how stressful this is, trying not the lose the .... teddy. It is worse than loosing a kid, it is the school teddy, what a responsibility!!

Anyway, we had a great time and I fell in love with Dorset and I want to retire there but I am sure another ten million people do too so we will only ever be able to afford one of these static caravans!!

This week is our gorgeous baby girl 19th week. Looking chubbier everyday but still the cutest baby in our eyes.
and because I know my mum wants some more pictures...

I hope you have enjoyed half term too.

What a weekend!!

It all started on Friday night, with my birthday party. 28 girl friends came to celebrate my birthday at a Robbie William tribute in a hotel near us. Now, I am not the biggest fan, well, he is kind of nice but I wouldn't necessarily pay to see the real guy, but this chap was really good fun, cheeky and talented. We all had a fantastic night. Well I hope people did, I know, I had a great time and it was so lovely to have all my friends around. All the men babysat, which was also a nice change!

I stayed the night and had breakfast with some friends and when I got home Andrew and the kids had lots of surprises for me and gorgeous food ready on the BBQ. I felt a bit worse for wear on Saturday but I blame it on Mariska's snoring.
On Saturday night, the Eurovision was on and as sad as it sounds, we love watching it and Grahame Norton's comments always make me laugh.
And Finally on Sunday, I did a 5 hours cookery course and in farm near us. It was great, especially since a friend of mine was also there. I ate in enough in a weekend to last me for a month. I dare try the skinny jeans I wore on Friday night, they would probably burst!!

And now for the cutey Violette 18 week picture...

 Still the easiest baby in the world! But I am sure I will eat my words one day!

Have a great week.

Another day late!!

but we were away for the weekend so here is the 16 week old picture.

I know, the body is dirty, but I thought I would leave it this way to remind myself that it was the week she started eating. Well, tasting more than eating, judging by how much goes on her clothes more than in her mouth!
And just because I love this picture...
Have a nice week everyone.
