The last week has been all about birthdays. Imogen was one last Friday and we had a whole weekend celebrating, including a party for one of Sophie’s school friends.
My family came to stay from Yorkshire; my parents, sister and grandma, and the in-laws all came over on the Sunday for a barbecue. Catering for 25 people with two children isn’t easy! But thank goodness I had my parents around to manhandle them and help out with the cooking and preparation.
So we have a week off from parties this weekend and then it’s Sophie’s fifth birthday party for her school friends next week so I have been buying supplies for that. And no sooner is her party over than she’ll be off school for the whole summer. I’m trying to come up with ideas and plans for keeping us all occupied for the two weeks we have at home before we go on holiday.
