Two weeks ago I broke up from school and I’ve been remiss in updating the blog.
We’ve had a busy old time if it. We went to Ibiza for a few days which was exciting as we had to get up in the middle of the night.
To wake ourselves up I insisted we went for a swim in gran-gran’s non heated pool. Even the Big m has never swim this early in the year – she has now! It was freezing! Not to be deterred we also decided to sample the sea
It was pretty cold too. The Big M said it was ‘bracing!’
We went out for some lovely lunches
Here I am feeding gran- gran.
We also went to lots of playgrounds
And visited grandpa
Bopped gran gran on the head with the bopper
And saw a very big fish in the harbour
As soon as we came home we were off again – this time to London for various hospital appointments.
Between these we went swimming at St Pancras’ new pool – which was AMAZING. Apparently it cost £123m to build. You can see why. It had water canons, water jets, jacuzzis and a massive shallow kids pools complete with floats and toys.
We also went shopping to buy a new frying pan. Argos on TCR has got a lot smarter
The weather was glorious so we hung out like Londoners in the park
Visited the church the Big m and d we’re married in (and I was christened in)
It was also the Big m’s bday so we walked along the Thames (if you look closely you’ll see a man with no head! -sadly he was moved on by security after we gave him 50p)
We saw lots of boats including The Golden Hind – sir Francis drake’s ship (we had to look that up!)
And walked along a floating pontoon
we also had a lovely lunch at st Katherine’s dock.
It was all rather too much so Inigo and I both had a snooze in the sunshine
On Saturday we left London and headed back west for solomon’s christening. It was a lovely do held at one of only five thatched churches in the U.K.
Once the b m became godmother Lou we went back to best friend Lucy (Solomon’s Aunty) house. Inigo rather enjoyed the catering
And Solomon enjoyed the grand national – his dad’s horse came in second! Well done Vincent!
Back at home we carried out some more mundane tasks – like the washing
And hoovering (well, eating)
Then yesterday we went to meet the Big m and d’s university friend, Charlie and his son Will at the Swanage railway. The Big d got recognised loads and ended up having to ride on the footplate of the Devon Belle.
Whilst we travelled in the carriages.
We also went to the beach and had a paddle (not much colder than Ibiza)
And built sandcastles
All in all a good few days.
Lots going on this week too….
