Chums and chocolate cake

My eldest daughter has some friends round for the afternoon. She has duly baked and made her own lemonade too. Any excuse to get out the vintage tablecloths I say!

21 Again!

.......yesterday. Shared delicious home baked (by 13yr old) cake with lots of kids.
Enjoyed the sunshine taking a long walk with David..

We are lucky to live in a beautiful valley with some fabulous views.

And it's such a joy to be part of a great big family where you can share the children out. This is my eldest (soon to be 18) with my sisters youngest, (4 months.)

It's been a long time I know...but I was rereading my blog recently and thought, "what a good archive/diary for my family, even if nobody else ever reads it."
 I did get a bit sucked in to the whole reading of other blogs and then commenting because I was keen to see comments on my own and then before you know it, it can become a bit obsessive and extremely time consuming.
So here I am again and I am going to use this space as a place for documenting our goings on as a family and reminiscing from time to time. If there are any interested parties out there, you are very welcome to join us.

This is me and David after his graduation ceremony last weekend in Harrogate. He has just finished his M.Ed with Open University. It was hard work for him but well worth the effort. Aren't we quite the handsome couple?
 And here he is with the children...

Aren't we lucky??
