A week !

Oh wow what a wonderful week I have had but oh how time has flown by.

Monday I went to Yeovil (not my favourite place in the world) but needs must and I had to buy some new clothes for Tallon for our trip to London. Why do children grow so fast?
Then on the way home I popped into see mum and dad, this is something I promised myself I would do more of this year. My realationship with my parents has been shall we say a little (or a lot) strained over the past 15 years. I wish I could say that I had a wonderful mother daughter realationship but I don't. When I read stories here in blog land about you all going round your mums for coffee or going shopping, crafting together. How your mum has passed her love of crafts on to you I feel a small pang of jealousy. I'm really not sure where I get my love of crafting from but it's not my mum. I have three sisters too and I don't see much of them either. Anyway I digress.

So Tuesday was the big trip to London which was AMAZING. The ballet was beautiful,  I didn't know what to expect as this was my first expirence of a ballet and although I  know the story of Romeo and Juliet I didn't know how easy I would find it to follow without words but the music and dance were so powerful that there was no need for words. I wish I could write in words how it made me feel but I just don't know how to explain it in words, may be there are no words.

I spent Wednesday getting myself organised for the school PTA meeting that night. Back in October at the AGM I put myself forward for Chairperson there wasn't many people there and no one else wanted to do the job. Now I do joke and say oh know what have I got myself into but I think I'm going to enjoy the position really. There are some parts of the job that aren't so good paper work and official stuff like making sure we have the right licences for any events we have. However with this year being the Queens Diamond Jubilee we have started to make some big plans for the last day of term. I'll share more about this when it starts coming together a little bit more.

Thursday and Friday was spent getting ready for the new family member who we collected on Saturday.

Say hello to


My baby girl.

Hope you all have a wonderful week.

Darcy is beautiful! I'm glad you enjoyed the ballet. It's something I love, although I haven't been for years - the experience is just magical, isn't it.

Oooo, puppy dog! Soo cute!
Glad you enjoyed the ballet.
I know what you mean about the jolliness of mother/daughter stuff. I wish I'd had that with my mum too! It was great when I was child, but I wish we could've had more fun together in later years. But she wasn't well and that's that! I have to be hard on myself sometimes!!
