    Welcome back Angel....you have been missed.

    Only 2 kids this week due to others having holidays, so just take g it easy with soft play mornings and dvd afternoons. Me and my family are off to London for 3 days on Thursday and also on count down to 3 weeks in Disney at the end of August so as you can imagine every spare moment I have is trying to plan our holidays.

    Welcome back we have been so worried about you, glad you are making a good recovery.

    We have been out for a muddy walk - not raining here in Somerset today but plenty of puddles around from yesterday and the weekend.

    I have a 7 year old here today (I said to his mum I would look after him for free today as a thank you for her lending me a stunning ball gown for my cruise last week), and a 3 year old watching a little TV (as a thank you for helping dry up) and a 2 year old having a nap.

    Fingers crossed that the summer is coming back as it was 40 degrees last week in Rome and I have been freezing now home, mind you coming back from Italy and going straight to WOMAD festival probably wasn't the best idea I had ever had!

    Cruise was lovely but I wouldn't do Italy in July again, it was tooooo hot for sightseeing and even too hot for sun bathing on the deck (everyone was looking for sun beds in the shade)! Everyone was friendly, people on our table for evening dinner were lovely, food was delicious (I really restrained myself and only put on a couple of pounds), we did our own excursions which was a little stressful when you know if you don't get back in time from Rome that the ship will sail without you. We had a wine package (6 bottles for £102) which lasted us 7 evening meals and the other drinks were very reasonable (I thought they would rip us off on those), internet however was very expensive so we didn't bother. I was a little disappointed in the evening entertainment - it only lasted 45 mins as they did 2 shows a night and some of it was a little dated and amateurish, I think I was expecting a bit more glitz & glamour. Lots of people we met do 2 or 3 cruises a year - we will do one again but not for a year or so. When are you off on yours?

    That sounds great , my In laws used to cruise several times a year but they don't stop in Ireland so they had to travel to the UK to get one, and father in law decided he was sick of airports so they are currently trying coach tours, done some good ones already. Would love to try one, maybe in a coupe of years time when we can leave the dds in the house on their own.

    We have already been, did London and Wales Harry Potter studios legoland etc, had a ball. I will go with friends shopping weekend to belfast in nov , love that, and dh turns 40 this year and fancies a trip to Berlin for Christmas markets leave the kids at nanas so won't complain!

    Welcome back Angel! Great to hear from you.

    Had an ok day, not awful, not wonderful, lol. DD and one particular mindee arguing every two minutes and I actually got really cross with both of them for the first time ever. It's six of one half a dozen of the other with those two and I have tried every strategy in the book to stop them from bickering these last couple of years and today I had just had enough. Felt really guilty afterwards for the rest of the day as you do

    We went for a picnic tea and I got the parents to collect mindees from the field instead of my house and it was so much nicer, smoother and less stressful (one parent in particular) than doing it at home. Think I'll arrange it that way tomorrow too!
