24.9

The in-laws went home and our cousin’s son James moved into Dad’s house to look after the kids – Susie loves him. he is really gentle.

24.5A busy week at school and work and then The Little Miss had an outdoor cooking session at Cubs. On Saturday I went to a ladies weights session on Saturday morning at 7.30am…. the kids had swimming and music and then we headed to the beach for the afternoon. It was gorgeous! Emma and I scooted off on our bikes to attend a concert in the rectory gardens. Very nice indeed.

Sunday was Father’s Day and we had a lovely relaxed day… then the news came… Susie has had kittens!!!! 7 of then which is amazing for her first litter. So we had very excited children and Mummy and headed down to see them before ending the weekend with a glorious high tide swim before bedtime.

Week 20 – 15-21 May 2023

20-220.6

The week started with Mum’s birthday and as is tradition I went out for dinner with Dad and my sister. It is always lovely to have an excuse to go out together although it was short meal as I had to get to choir.

The Little Mister had the opportunity to participate in a Digital Leader day which he absolutely loved – anything to do with screens and technology and he is one happy boy!

We had a number of Cubs activities this week and I went to help with various gardening activity at Edward’s Cubs. There was much hilarity in general, amongst both the leaders and the kids. It was a fab evening.

On Friday evening The Mister and I darted between a family Golden Wedding party and to The Little Miss’ Ciubs where she was invested. She as so proud to get her neckie and due to the hard work and dedication of our wonderful friend Kayleigh she also received a fistful of badges as well as her investment badges.

Saturday was exceptionally busy as The Little Mister was involved in the Youth Games where he was playing in a hockey tournament in the afternoon and then there was the closing ceremony in the afternoon. It was fantastic to see so many kids participating in sport. In the middle of it all I popped out to sing at a lovely wedding.

What a fab week!

Week 17 – 24-30 April 2023

10This week has mostly been characterised by washing and absolutely loads of it!!! It has been back to work and back to hard work and the holiday is a distant memory!!

The weather was absolutely beautiful on Saturday and Dad came for lunch. He and Eric had some quality time together as usual.

On Sunday morning I sang at a local church with choir. It was quite fun to do a more formal church service for a change.

On Sunday afternoon we had to go to the AGM for The Little Miss’ Scout group and that was fun and the kids had a go on the zip line and the high rope. They did well, especially The Little Mister who is quite scared of heights. I am always proud of them when they give it a go.

Week 12 – 20–26 March 2023

40

This week The Little Mister had hos Grade 2 violin exam – he has been practicing hard for weeks. I think he was a little bit wobbly so we will see if he has passed. We promised him that if he worked hard he could have a treat and he requested a meal out at China Red so we took him and his sister and our lovely friend Kayleigh out. It was a delicious meal.

Eliza went to Cubs this week and they had an Eygptian night so they all dressed up – her friend James went as a Sphinx which really made me laugh.

We also had parents evenings and both kids are doing really well. The Little Miss’ teacher waxed lyrical about hos marvellous she was and how helpful, compliant etc she was at school. Of course when we got in the car she refused to get out of the front seat and was shouting her head off. Oh! The irony!

I also went to the Eisteddfod exhibition and took a pic of my friend Elise’s gorgeous embroidery, I went to two partied on Saturday night and The Mister took a photo of my which my sister described as ‘making me look a member of the case of Willow’.

On Saturday morning I went to weights and worked hard and The Little Miss and I have matching shoes. A good week.

24.1

The Little Mister went to a fabulous event today. An island wide Scouting event for the Queen’s Jubilee – a short church service and then a social event involving activities at Castle Cornet.

I tried really hard to get a sensible picture of The Little Mister and his bestie in their Cubs uniform. As usual they both refused to oblige!

2.1The Little Mister is off to Cubs tonight and this evening they planted trees.

I love the Scouts for the opportunities they offer and the range of activities they do. It is a very different type of participation to the other things that he does which are mainly sport and music related.

20.1

Today I took The Little Mister to his first Cub Camp. He had been really worried about it so I wasn’t sure he was going to agree to stay but he was so excited by the time he got there.

Apparently there are about 500 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts staying for all or part of this weekend and this makes it the largest Scout Camp in Europe in 2021!

7.1This evening The Little Mister was invested at Cubs.

We absolutely love the fact that he goes to Cubs and gets the opportunity to do things that he wouldn’t get to do with us. Working collaboratively and being part of a team is so important and I think he learns loads of lifeskills.

He was fortunate because Grandpa even came to see him get invested.
