Today I feel rather jaded. Last night we went out for Julians neices 18th birthday, it was Ok , the food was a bit expensive and the chef seemed to overdo the salt in everything but I think she enjoyed herself.

Then this morning I got up at the crack of dawn to sit in a wood to be a marshall on a 10k run a friend was organizing. So now I am back with my feet up and thought hey I think my journal is due for an update.

This week my eldest son had a special mission! He was to cross the road outside his work to the CORN EXCHANGE and accost Tony Hadley  (his mothers hero) who was opening the beer festival.  He did bless him got his autograph had a chat with him and tasted his own beer. Rory said he was very nice and friwndly to him. I couldnt go myself due to work and the fact I would have been struck dumb and paralysed to the spot like I was last time.

Harry has been going to the local Army Cadets at the nearby airbase and is finding it great fun. They have so far done a bit of CPR , map work and gun safety! He cant wait to get his uniform boots etc. They are apparently in the near future going uo in the air sea rescue helicopter! I shall be having a fit!

Cant think of much else to tell so I bid you goodbye for now    Louise   xx

Back from the cold


Harry is back from his 8 days away in Switzerland. He looks like a panda with a really brown face and white google marks around his eyes! He had a brilliant time and cant wait to go again..better start saving. I think hr krpt his thermals on day and night to save time and his washbag looked unused! Still he had a good bath last night. No broken bones just a few bruises on his shins.

We missed him alot more than he missed us I think but I suppose thats what being a parent is all about. Tomorrow he has to write a presentation which is going to be about the dogs! So he and Julian are going to take lots of photos of them. I am reading the book by Cesar Millan the Dog Whisperer..I would so much like to meet that man.

Hope you are well, we had a bit of snow here today but it didnt really settle.
