busy times have been had!



I promise not to go blabber on too much but it sure has been a busy few days.

Tuesday was really a very sad day; I went up to Nuneaton to be with my dear friend Sarah on the day she said her final goodbye to her father. It brought back memories of my Dad's funeral and made me look back a little. However, I was pleased to know that I was of some help and support to the family. My love is with all the family and thinking of you at this sad time. xxLol

Wednesday was when my body decided it couldn't fight the bugs the boys have had and I was quite unwell. Dispite it all I met up witht girls in London for dinner. The biggest suprise was to meet up with an old school friend Hadleigh. We have not seen each other since high school and many memories and news were shared!! As the girls predicted we all toodled off from Leicester square to China town for dinner. Unfortunately I then spent the rest of the night battling the bugs and I can assure you I hadn't had too much wine!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday was a day in bed for me and feeling a little sorry for myself. I have say I was starting to wonder why on earth I travelled across the world to the coldest of weather. We have seen readings of -6 degrees on the thermometer.

Friday I was determined to get the boys back up to London and we had a wonderful day seeing the sites. Unfortunately the London Eye was closed but Oliver still enjoyed seeing Big Ben, going on a river boat and seeing the Beef Eaters.

This weekend has been fun packed socialising with cousins in Essex and visiting a couple of the local pubs. I nearly fell over backwards when it was my turn to buy the round! We have also caught up with our good friends Dee and James who are excitedly anticipating the birth of their baby in April.

So that's it in a nutshell and now I leave you with some photos of our fun.

bye xx
