Today is the last day of the school holidays in our house and the last week of the uni holidays. So whilst the lovely girl prepares to return to school (in not the greatest of humour it has to be said but with a new haircut – 4 inches of her lovely blonde hair cut off!), the politics student is allegedly revising for exams and the young engineer has become an employer today. I can’t quite believe that our little boy, the young adult who acts so daft at home, is now an IT entrepreneur with a business partner and an employee….I guess all parents must feel this at some time.
For our house, a sign that the new year is well and truly under way is when we reach the birthday of my best friend’s daughter on the 10th and hubby’s birthday on 11th January. We went to the Pizza Express part of the 9th birthday party yesterday, deciding to skip the ice skating at Hampton Court Palace to avoid the cold – and yours truly was the “best auntie ever” for the cake. This year I was tasked with “A Series of Unfortunate Events” for the theme, and fortunately my mob have all read the books and watched some of the Netflix show. My lovely girl helped with painting the decorations on the sides and we were very pleased with our efforts, particularly when all the party guests recognised the characters. This year is a big one for hubby (and me too later in the year – yes, 21 again) but more of that next week!
I wrote a long post for the Versatile blogger award yesterday and tagged various bloggers (who I thought hadn’t been nominated before) so I’m sharing one of each of their posts with you today. So grab a cuppa, relax and enjoy!
Have a great week,
