A year in pictures – Day 113

ChildcareWe are fortunate to have the most brilliant childminder and she often sends me little videos and pics of what the kids have been up to.

When I arrived to pick them up today The Little Mister was covered in bubbles and sliding down a polythene sheet covered in water. He was having the most brilliant time.

Happy children with a happy childminder means I am a happy Mummy!

London Marathon heroes

I am so proud of my sister and brother-in-law today.

They ran the London Marathon in a time of 3 hours and 36 minutes. I think they are complete heroes and Philip did a brilliant job of pacing and supporting Louise but I especially think my sister is a legend. She has had a calf injury and has been worried she wouldn’t finish. At about 10 miles in her calf went pop and she took painkillers, walked a bit and then managed to finish the job.

My sister is rock hard. Fact.

A year in pictures – Day 112

Nice view

We have had a lovely, busy day. The Mister did a park run, the kids had music lessons and we spent some time in the garden tidying up around the veg patch and getting ready for planting.

We took a quick trip out for ice-cream and we sat looking out over Castle Cornet and looking at the cruise ship that appeared to be bigger than Herm.

Beach-o-clock

We spent a lovely couple of hours on the beach with friends and their kids.

Warm and sunny and lots of snacks. Lovely. The only thing that ruined it was my whinging children refusing to do as they were told!

Beach beauty

This evening I managed to squeeze in a quick walk with my sister. An absolutely beautiful evening down at Vazon beach.

A quick tramp across the beach and a catch-up with my lovely sister and her nutty dog. Evenings don’t get better than that.

Fashion iconIt makes me laugh to see what interesting clothing combinations The Little Miss comes out with.

Here she is wearing her pyjamas with sparkly shoes, a necklace and a hair band. All accessorised with a miniature suitcase.

She carries it off I reckon.

A year in pictures – Day 107

Mum's bears

Today my wonderful sister is 39 – next year she hits the big 4-0 and life truly begins!

About three months ago my sister commented that she had seen something on Dragon’s Den a company that made memento bear’s out of a loved one’s clothing. She mentioned that she would have liked something made out of Mum’s cardigan or soemthing. I brushed it off but looked up the site she mentioned and thought the memory bears were really ugly!

I found a wonderful lady in Guernsey who made memento keepsakes and commissioned her to make a bear for my sister and a rabbit for me out of one of Mum’s cardigans. Her website is Homemade by Sue. They are wonderful. Beautifully made and perfect in every way.

Louise was so delighted and this has made me happy. Something for us to remember Mum by.

Easter Sunday

Happy Easter everyone!

We have had a lovely day. Church, followed by a lunch at my Dad’s house and the kids had an Easter egg hunt.

Today my cousin Stef and her new husband Rhys headed off to the UK before moving to New Zealand for a couple of years. We are going to miss them loads but thanks to the wonders of technology hopefully we will be able to keep up with them!

A year in pictures – Day 105

Castle explorersBusy day again today. We went out to support The Mister running in the local park run. He did well – 8th out of 181 participants which I thought was pretty good.

In the afternoon we headed up to Castle Cornet which had some local history events taking place; storytellers, re-enacters and children’s craft activity. It was really nice to wander around the castle and take a but of time to explore.

In the evening The Mister and I went out with my Dad and sister to see a local amateur dramatics production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It was brilliant and they had even managed to create a flying car. It looked as good as a West End Production. It was fab!
