This week it was the wedding of one of my good friends. It was a fantastic wedding, in a beautifully decorated barn and everyone looked like they were having a really good time. It was great to catch up with old friends – it’s hard to see each other when we live 1 mile apart thanks to conflicting calendars – let alone when many are spread across the country and beyond!
Even better than having a good old fashioned knees up to go to? No kids! Izzy and Clara had a sleepover at my sister’s house with their two cousins, who are 3 and 6. Izzy had been looking forward to this for ages and shared a room with her little cousin – they didn’t go to sleep until after 10pm as they were too busy talking and swapping beds! We even managed to get a cheeky child free trip to Wetherspoons for a fry up on Sunday before we went to pick up our very tired but happy little girls.
Our first week of Summer holidays meant that on the days I don’t work, I had some extra time with Izzy. Usually she would have been at pre-school in the mornings, tiring herself out for the rest of the day! So it was nice to have a couple of lazy days, with face painting and cake making. Izzy picked a recipe for an easter cake out of a book and insisted on decorating her cake in the same way – except we didn’t have any chicks or mini eggs so she used haribo and sprinkles (lots of sprinkles!) to replicate the pattern.
Random things Izzy has cried about this week…
Because she doesn’t ‘know much about planets’.
Because Daddy left for work without saying goodbye (she was flat out asleep when he left).
Because she didn’t know how to leave a message on Daddy’s voicemail.
