Wish you were here....

...well not really.  It's been a hectic week here in England.  I am enjoying the time with my daughter, Billy and Jimi immensely but I am exhausted.

I have walked an awful lot and I have blisters on my feet and my back aches.  A sign that old age is creeping up on me.

Nevertheless, two weeks is never long enough and I am sure this coming week will just fly by.

Billy celebrated his 6th birthday on Thursday, and some of the family popped in after school.  His great-grandfather bought a sandpit as a joint present for Billy and Jimi (whose birthday is on Wednesday) and they had great fun in it.



My daughter and I had an enjoyable lunch out on Friday, and we plan to do the same again on Monday.  I miss her so much and love these precious moments with her.

Yesterday I saw my neice's daughter Elsie, who was born in February.  Beautiful little girl, and last night my brother and sister-in-law took me out for a meal.

Today the boys have a joint party, with a disco, and there will be 40 children there.   It will probably be the most hectic day so far, but I am looking forward to it!

Mr A is managing to get home fairly early every day from work to look after the dogs.  Timmy seems to be outgrowing his bed so I'm afraid Mr A has allowed him onto the bed with the other three little ones.   I would not have given in so soon but Mr A let's the dogs get away with so much.

That's all my news for now.


  1. The boys sure have grown and are really adorable....glad you are having a great time with your family. XXOO

    1. They seem to grow up far too quickly Erica. Yes I'm having a great time xx

  2. So glad you're having a great time, Ayak, despite the blisters Grandchildren are hard work, but worth all the effort, aren't they. I hope the party goes with a swing and everyone enjoys themselves = even Grandma. :)

    As for Mr A and the dogs - he's incorrigible. :-)

    1. It was a fantastic party Perpetua. The kids all loved it. It was very noisy but lovely to see chşldren having such a wonderful time.

      Mr A? Incorrigible yes...but I wouldn't change him.

  3. You'll be back in time for the next book sale for street animals on May 11th

  4. Sorry Ayak - Book sale is 10th May

  5. Delighted that your break in England is going well - blisters aside! A party for 40 young children will be unforgettable!! Good old Mr. A! Sounds like you're doing all the right things and making the most of your time. Sandpits are such fun!
    Enjoy the rest of your time.

  6. I think I left a message on fb.....but, the memory isnt too good ! I know you'll be having a wonderful time, try not to catch any UK kiddy germs before you return. Think of the welcome you'll get when you get home...those dogs and Mr A will be so pleased to see you. Jx

  7. Glad you're having a good time. Ooh, wish I could attend that book sale!
