Exhausting Weekend

Well, we’ve managed to brave the storm of a hectic weekend with friends staying and the children have been spoilt rotten. They are presently getting their hair dried by our friend Sarah – So I have been relieved of that chore and am sitting at the kitchen table with a little time to myself. Tara and Aaliyah have just stormed down the stairs to say nite nite to Josh, who is chilled on the sofa watching Harry Potter! Daddy has just shouted downstairs for them to return. Now Thor can be heard giggling away in the living room and I hear Tara and Caleb charging down the stairs, their hair must be dry. The guys arrived on Saturday morning and are headed back into London tomorrow morning with John on his way in to work. Daddy is still shouting for them at the top of the stairs. They are all now sat with Josh – watching Harry Potter! They are all oblivious of the story’s of Harry and his wizardry due to still being so young! They have a lot of catching up to do with his books and movies in the time to come.

The children were all brought new Halloween costumes last week in preparation for our Hallow-Fawkes festivities in a few weeks time. The not so famous five insisted on trying them on for the arrival of our friends on Saturday morning.

What with the company, I had the time to publish ‘Thirteen Moons More’ on Amazon this weekend. The ebook is now available by simply searching for ‘Thirteen Moons More’ on your Amazon account or the app. The paperback is also available, but might take up to 72 hours to process on their system.

Argentinian red shrimp Thermidor was enjoyed last night with jumbo triple fried chips (spag-bol was had for lunch) and we all feasted on two roast chickens with all of the trimmings earlier today. Last nights cheese board left me feeling unable to move, but a good nights sleep was had. I even had the chance to lie in until 9.30 a.m. this morning. A first for me in recent years…

Signing off now – last night with Sarah and Josh and all of that so – hoping you all had a pleasant weekend too. Screams can now be heard from the children’s bedrooms… nite nite. The cheese board has just miraculously reappeared!
