We’ve been fannying about deciding whether to move or not for about a year. We’ve viewed some beauts, some beasts and some that William let rip howling farts in during an awkwardly formal viewing by the owner.
This week, with the help of my marvellous mother, we got our arses in gear, hired a skip (heaven!), and got sorting.
There are three properly dishy workmen in my living room at the moment. It sent me in to such a tis that when making coffee I couldn’t say ‘how do you take it?’ without getting flustered. I’m writing this from the second floor staircase.
William had his first day. That went as expected: “I DONT WANT TO LEARN NEW THINGS!”
He was fine in the end.
Alex had his first full day at his new nursery. He balled his eyes out all day apparently. Poor scrap.
I had my first day back. Was gutted not to be at the school gates for W’s first day, but I had a ball teaching this week. Was great to be back on it. Ask me in November and it’ll be a different story but for now it’s great. Miss the sprogs though (and Andrew but don’t tell him that).
Happy birthday, Alex, you crazy-haired, stubborn, hilarious and happy little boy.
We celebrated your birthday with granny Rose and grumpa Ben. Your birthday falls on my favourite weekend of the year (bar bonfire night): Norfolk Heritage Weekend! All the museums are open and free! Nooks and crannies round the county are thrown open to all!
The next day, we had Peppa Pig cake and went to Wymondham for a vintage car fair.
We all had a super day and you were well chuffed with your pirate ship present that William commandeered. Thanks for sharing your presents, dribble and cake with us all today. You are utterly adorable.
We are going on a cruise! Heaven help us! My in-laws are taking us and my nephew and I have a few anxious rumblings: what if I’m too rowdy for formal evenings? What if I get stuck next to an American at the buffet breakfast? What if I get judged for ordering a Rum Punch at 10AM?
Here’s a pic of us as I write this:
Anyway, got to go as feeling carsick and need to double check I packed the passports and enough sequined outfits. Wish me luck!
EDIT: cruise went well. No men/child overboard. Success.
