I was eating for two, maybe three, possibly even four, but basically was in food heaven. It was divine.
All we could hear was the breeze through the trees, birdsong and...SPLASH!!!!!!!!!
The minute I heard it, I just knew. Call it mothers' intuition. I then heard a girly scream, one that is overly dramatic. I paced round the corner to find the Prince had pushed the Princess into a big fish pond. Thigh high water with mahoosive fish.
And the Princess was being dragged out of said pond by a stranger.
And I felt like a rubbish mum who should have been paying more attention.
The Princess, who lost her shoe in the process, was sodden from head to foot and the Prince looked all triumphant and said: "Told ya! Told ya I would actually push you in."
I dragged them both back to the car, one soaking and limping (never did find the shoe), the other declaring he was the winner.
Welcome to the summer holidays.
Just two days left before the little darlings wear their school uniform and allow me to hoover the aftermath of filth up. Apart from the fish pond, and a few other incidents, we've had an absolute ball.
We saw Cuckoo who came to visit us with her brood for the day:
|Prince, Princess, Big Cuckoo and Little Cuckoo|
|They all bonded over chips!|
|We had a really lovely day and the sun shone brightly!|
What else have we been up to?
There has also been a lot of night time cuddles as the Prince keeps falling asleep during the day (after charging around on the beach) and then refusing to sleep at night. Gah!
|Spot the stroppy one...|
Umpteen moments in the library.....
LOVING the Birdman event - that is Warwick Davis on the big screen (my little crush....no pun intended)
We celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. Sadly forgot to get a pic of me and the husband, but we all went out for a slap-up lunch to celebrate. Fab, it was.
Oh and here is Bluebell, the most gorgeous cat who has adopted us. Can't have her in the house due to my asthma but she is flipping lush.
She just needs to avoid the Prince more often. Poor cat. I've told him Bluebell isn't a horse...
Glorious days on the beach, daring to laze in deckchairs (wonder how much longer they will hold my weight for....)
I was lucky enough to spot a water vole. Only I keep getting it wrong and calling it a water VOWEL. So embarrassing........
|You can call me Consonant|
Went to a little festival with friends
The kids weren't so keen on staying out after 9pm, poor mites.
|Cherry tree cardie, natch!|
More beach loving.
|Love his little hand|
|I'd love us to have the same sex baby |
but am guessing she is having a girl and I am having a boy.
|We both ate all the pies ok?|
Then we travelled back to Berkshire and stayed with friends for a couple of nights. We went to a pub and meet loads of our old friends which was just wonderful.
|My lovely French Sophie moved to Zurich a couple of days later.|
My top and necklace are cherry tree, darlings.
I popped over to see my dear friend and her new addition. Ooooh it gets me so excited!!!
|Look at his little munchkin-ness|
The kids enjoyed their sleep over.
How I miss my hostess with the mostess, she's a diamond.
Then we went to Whitstable to house-sit for a few nights. Twas lush.
We had fun.....the kids had fights.
|Cherry tree hoodie of course|
Always love to pop in for a browse when we pass the W.P.
|HOW bored does the Prince look?!?!|
The view from the bedroom window.
We went to Broadstairs for the day:
|More fighting I think|
|King Kong ain't got nuffin' on me, y'all.|
Think I spotted Simon Cowell in there......
But this is what won me over.
|Isn't he gorgeous?! I had a tear in my eye.|
We enjoyed coffee in the sun
|Hmmmm I wear that dress far too often.....|
And now the Husband has grown a beard after not shaving for a fortnight and I think I fancy him even more but now the holidays have come to an end and he is back at work and I have the blues.
But that just goes to show we had a brilligog time. I shall reclaim my house from Thursday, but will also spend time mopping up my face as the Prince starts school. It's the end of an era and I shall miss him desperately.
Loving my Digital Detox by the way. Don't miss Facebook or Instagram AT ALL. Have so much more free time, I may even come off Twitter as hardly use it. I feel happier, more content with life and wish I'd done it sooner.
