We had our annual party (though it has been 2 years since the last one as we had chicken pox this time last year). It was fun, fun and more fun. We saw old friends, welcomed new ones and loved the fact that the children are so much more self sufficient & easy than 2 years ago. I didn't see them all afternoon and they told me they 'loved everything about the party'. Friends were sleeping in tents, in spare rooms and yesterday morning we all sat in the garden & had a party post-mortem.
The children go to stay with Nana on Wednesday until Sunday. I am going to miss them so much (although I do get a little bit excited when I think about having 2 WHOLE DAYS on my own.) I hope I can make the most of it and not mope about.
I have discovered Noah and the Whale. 'Blue Skies' actually makes my heart soar and my skin tingle, despite the fact that I must have played it twenty times this weekend. "Blue Skies are coming" is my new philosophy on life.
