Day 14

FamilyIt was a long trip home – about 24 hours door-to-door going from Uganda to Dubai then to Gatwick and finally back to Guernsey.

I managed to stay awake until about 7pm and then had to go to bed. I almost fell asleep in a restaurant at lunchtime but woke up a little with a quick walk on the beach.

I have missed my wonderful family. It is good to be home.

A year in pictures – Day 1

New Year's Day

I uhmed and ahed whether to head straight into another year of photos but I know there are people out there who like to read my ramblings! This will be my fourth year of daily photos without a day missed so far so that feels like quite an achievement!

This afternoon we headed down to the beach with some foolish cousins who thought going for a New Year’s Day swim was an excellent idea. It was… shall we say… bracing!

The year has started. Who knows what it will bring. We have happy events planned but I am pretty sure there is likely to be some sadness on the way. All I know is that we will face all things together. Much love to all my wonderful family x

Happy New Year

We have had a lovely day and our friends Emma and Martin came for lunch along with their daughter Ava and The Little Misters bestie Maxi!

We had a lovely lunch and then dragged ourselves out for a walk around Fort Houmet. It was unbelievably windy but we were very excited to see a seal real close to shore.

The sea was gorgeous; huge waves and really wild but there is something about it that I love. Today the tide was high so the waves were coming up right against the fort and I could taste the sea on my lips. It smelt and tasted like home and I am grateful to be here, and especially grateful for such wonderful family and friends.

Happy New Year Everyone x

A year in pictures – Day 246

Nearly there

Today we head home on the boat.

We have had a wonderful holiday. Seen loads of lovely people, stayed in some beautiful places and generally relaxed and enjoyed our time.

Best of all was spending time with this wonderful bunch. We are so fortunate.

A year in pictures – Day 239

My lovesWe have been incredibly fortunate with the weather this year and Boughton House is a really gift when the weather is beautiful.

There is plenty of lovely shady places to sit where the kids can run about and play together.

I love this photo. It sums up all the wonderful things in my life, and as Greenbelt is where I met The Mister it seems very appropriate.

The inlaws are over visiting for a few days.

It’s lovely to see them and the kids are delighted to be able to spend some quality time with them.

A year in pictures – Day 103

We are family!This afternoon we met up on the beach with my sister and the kids and with Stefi and Rhys who got married last week.

In a week’s time they are heading off to New Zealand where they will be living for a couple of years so it was lovely to spend a bit of time with them.

Of course my two children ended up naked in the sea so they were a bit chilly by the time we left!

A year in pictures – Day 100

Family picnicWe had a lovely afternoon at a family picnic following the wedding at the weekend.

I reckon there was about 40 people there and the boys played football and the children ran about and climbed trees and we all ate cake.

It was lovely and sunny and a fab day. Here is The Little Miss walking to the playground with her Great Auntie Josie.

A year in pictures – Day 91

Home alone

We are surviving without Daddy although I really miss him!

This morning I woke up sandwiched between these two mini-beasts. They were very sweet and lay there giggling at each other. Shame they haven’t been so cute all day really!

Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas everyone.

We have had a lovely day. This morning we had a leisurely morning opening presents and chilling out at home before heading to my Dad’s where my sister and I cooked lunch. I have to say it, but it was a really good Christmas dinner to be honest – Mum would have been proud! Before opening presents we went for a quick tramp across the beach.

We had a lovely day together but decided to head home when the children were starting to lose it because they were so tired. Sometimes you have to cut your losses!

I am so proud of my lovely family. Together we are strong and today is one of those days that we always think of Mum. This is our fourth Christmas without her and it doesn’t get any easier, I think somehow we just get better at doing all the stuff she used to do for us.

So, Happy Christmas to all our wonderful friends and family. Thank you for being a huge support over the year – I cou;dn’t manage without you all.
