Thursday was Emily's 5th birthday.We went over for a party tea and birthday cake.And of course we had to have pass the parcel and dancing.We bought her ,among other things, a digital camera.Within minutes she had got the hang of it and was taking brill photos.It was her favourite present,even better than the bike from mum and dad.
Friday I had coffee in the morning with my best friend and then off again to sarah's.It was Emily's proper party.S had hired a village hall and engaged an entertainer.The hall had tyo be set up and i still have the bruises to prove how heavy the chairs were.The entertainer was brilliant.Mainly a magician but he entertained 30 ,yes 30,children for two hours.He also did all these balloon creations.Absolutely fabulous.Poor Grandpa couldn't go because a lot of these children could be hatching chicken pox.I stayed and looked after Ruby who found it all a bit too much,but I got lots of cuddles.
Saturday saw the arrival of our and his 3 children from cambridge(Jude had to stay and get a project done).After lunch we had a walk at loggerheads and an ice cream.
Sunday sarah and family joined us. We ate out at lunchtime and then went to the bailey Hill festival in our town.Quite a low key affair but something to do.Following that we went to the Art Exhibition in the parish church where Grandpa had entered a painting.Then there 10 of us here for tea!
Monday morning we had a country walk looking for fossils.The kids love being outdoors and walking(and playing endlessly with Lego) and living in Cambridge love our hills.The garden took a huge bashing with football ertc but who cares we had a great 5 days.
WE are absolutely shattered and have a huge pile of washing and ironing to do.
Finally we went back to the exhibition this afternoon.We bought two paintings and C discovered he had sold his painting.He is so chuffed!!!
Bye for now.
