You can hear a pin drop round at my gaff today.
My parents arrived yesterday in time to collect the Princess from the school run. She bounced out of school so happily, she loves my parents deeply and they have a strong bond from when I used to work three days a week and my mum looked after her.
They stayed for dinner and we had roast chicken with salad and new spuds. Followed by Trifle Crawford in the new cherry tree dishes I bought. My mum loved them and has some similar Laura Ashley ones in the same colour but they are taller.
So my parents stayed for a few hours before driving the Princess back home to theirs. We had such a lovely time with plenty of silliness which is standard in our family. I always spend a good half hour showing my mum all my recent cherry tree purchases and as always, we agree we must get together and go in search of more treasures together.

After my parents went, the husband and I put the Prince to bed and cuddled up on the sofa with wine, peanut M&Ms and watched The King's Speech. Really good film, we usually wait til the films are out on DVD as can rarely get out to the cinema, what with the husband's mad working hours and no babysitters.
After the film, we watched Miranda which I'd recorded. She makes us laugh out loud every time. The husband said Miranda reminds him of a combination of me, Davina McCall and a friend of ours. I kind of know what he means. I can see parts of myself in Miranda too and I think we would have a laugh if we ever met. I love all her camera "asides". Very funny.
Then we went to bed far too late after possibly a leetle bit too much wine.
My love has gone to work today. The Prince trashed the Princess's room which I am still trying to rectify before she returns tomorrow.

but knew he was being cheeky so refused to look at the camera

He knows he is not allowed to eat in there. Worst still, he is not allowed to lie on the fairly new sofa bed (I won it in a competition last year) licking a Fab lolly. And his face says it all. I did my "What are you dooooing?" high pitched voice and he just laughed and told me to "shush"....literally. Shush. How very dare he?!
He is in bed now and I am blogging, making chicken soup, tidying up, trying to perfect my crochet (not happening) and then need to do some writing work.
I bought a gorgeous cherry tree skirt yesterday but will show it tomorrow as camera is full at the mo. Therefore I will leave you with a treasure from the cherry tree bought by one of my best friends.
She knows the husband and I have always worn Converse (I have since I was 13) and she found a pink pair to match mine for the Princess. DELIGHTED was not the word when she gave me them. So now the Princess and I wear pink and the husband and Prince wear red.
I believe she found them in Oxfam for under a fiver...she may have to correct me if I am wrong.
