No wonder they keep growing…
Category Archives: The Husband
The Boy was given his first meccano set this Christmas.
He and the Husb spent a happy few hours constructing, then the Cat decided to join in!
More photos from yesterday. We spent a lovely day on the coast with my lovely big sis and her family, including a bracing walk on the seafront. Much grumbling ensued from the Littles (we want to go to the park, the seafront is boring, etc etc) until we got there, when they proceeded to have a lovely time!
And I caught some lovely sunset shots.
We decided that the Cat would probably eat, and definitely try to climb, our beautiful indoor ivy.
The Husb spent a good hour detangling the four climbing strands in the hope that we could keep one, but there didn’t seem to a viable option for draping that wouldn’t encourage a small kitten to want to play with/eat it.
So the plant has had a drastic hair cut, and the Husb is looking a lot less perplexed now .
I started university at the beginning of September. I’m reading (we’ve been taught to say it that way in case we ever go on university challenge – pfft!) Education Studies, then hoping to qualify as a primary teacher.
There is a LOT of work to do and I decided that I definitely wouldn’t have time to blog. Nope. No siree. Not a chance.
I was looking back through old posts this afternoon (while laid up in bed with the boy’s birthday bug (couldn’t think of a word beginning with b to describe the vomiting aspect, and I rather liked the alliteration)) and realised (as I do every time I stop blogging) that I really miss it. The process of writing, the connection with other people, the making the children do ridiculous poses so I can get a picture on quiet days, the grammatically hideous paragraphs with far too many brackets and lengthy sentences that I can get away with because it’s my blog so there!
And so I’m back. Not from outer space, but definitely into cyber space.
A lot has happened in the last month: a stay at The Grand in Brighton for the husb and I for the dual celebration of Big Sis’s wedding and our 13th wedding anniversary, managing to be in the same room as all four of my siblings for the first time in I don’t know how long, the Boy’s 9th (yes, I did type that correctly) birthday and a trip to the Crystal Palace underpass (rarely open to the public) to name but a few.
I will leave you with a selection of photos and the promise (or threat!) not to be gone for so long next time.
Drawn by the children while waiting to go into the subway.
The Husb has long been a fan of fires. He’s now able to combine that with one of his other great loves – power tools.
A fire pit and some redundant wooden garden furniture means that he has lots of excess wood to chop for fires.
He’s a happy man.
Technically, yesterday’s photos but I’ve never been shy of post-dating on here, as you will know.
We have lovely, lovely new garden furniture.
Lovely in the sun.
And gorgeous in the evening.
