Who's wearing their catcher's mitt?


Not quite sure what's up with my family, but we've been sick...again!



First me and the oldest 2 got flu, with a dash of vomiting thrown in for good measure, at the same time as I was having the living room and dining room decorated. Then Eva joined us, maybe she was feeling left out!?


By the end of last week I'd had my fill of paint fumes, decorators, sick bowls and snotty tissues! However, my house is starting to resemble a home; pics to follow...



Then my babygirl turned SEVEN...

SEVEN...how on earth did that happen? We celebrated modestly (the party happens this Saturday) the 10ft trampoline is still waiting to be erected.


And Chris and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. We had all kinds of grand plans of taking a train into Paris and having a blissfully romantic weekend - sans kids. But given the week we'd had, we decided to stay closer to home and spent a fabulously luxurious night at this gorgeous local hotel.

We enjoyed a lovely romantic dinner, champagne cocktails in the bar and after waking up to this view...

and soaking in this bath...

...I was treated to a calming facial the next morning in the spa.




All of this was just what I needed before returning to the humdrum (I mean joys) of school runs and cleaning house. Now to get on with arranging a party for 25 6 and 7 year olds. Joy.

Have a really fun weekend - whatever life throws at you!

Happy birthday to Eva! We had a party for Serena last Sunday, it's a shame we couldn't meet yet!

Our babies share similar birthdays. #1's was the 16th; he turned 8. And, it's hard to believe that we've only been together for 8 years, it seems like I've known him my entire life. Happy birthday to your baby, and happy anniversary to you! Looked like it was just what the doctor ordered.
