Proud Parents

Our boy (now 6 yrs old) is doing so well at school! He has just been asked to join the year above class in both Maths and English. So from now onwards, he will study twice a week with Year 2. It's fair to say we are very proud parents!

Morning treat

Today we left home 20 mins earlier than usual (Little Madam stayed home with Daddy!), so we could stop for a coffee and hot chocolate before school, just Sean and I. Quality time with my son is so precious xxx

Heading for Heathrow

I started my Saturday morning with a green smoothie

Once Alan is back from his PT session at the gym, we'll be off to Heathrow to pick up Sean who has been staying with his Grandma in Sweden for the half term holiday.

He's travelling alone on the SAS 'unaccompanied minor' program again. We think he is brave, but he thinks nothing of it LOL! Missed our little boy tremendously and can't wait to see him!!

Gorgeous day @ Grosvenor Square

The capital is spoiling us with beautiful weather today so Anna and I took the kids to Grosvenor Square in Mayfair. 

Anna's older boy Nick (above pic) was looking after Scarlett Grace to ensure she didn't go on the muddy grass, and we sipped on our take away cappuccinos :-)

Bathroom renovation in progress

Beautiful fireplace to warm us up from the sub zero temperatures outside 

 Another glass of bubbly? Dont mind if I do..
Although missing the kids (that my wonderful Mum looked after), it was so great to have a child free holiday - almost like a second honeymoon!
