Bad blogger

Sorry I've gone AWOL for a while, things have been so crazy but very enjoyable. I have spent the past two weeks at my parents, going out and about and catching up with friends and family. The first week I caught up with my best mate, who has been having a rather tough time of it just recently, but she was so positive and seems to be getting her life back on track. Went shopping in Cambridge, I have been eyeing up a pair of boots for a while, so I just had to try them on and of course fell in love with them!!. The first weekend was great, Charlotte spent the Saturday night in the back garden in my brother's tent with Daddy, a trial run really she loved the adventure. Not so sure that Les was that keen on being woken up at 5.15 in the morning!!!.

We took Charlotte to Great Yarmouth, she loves it there. She even went for a paddle with Nanny. I have to say that my Mum has lost over 3 1/2 stone in weight and she looks fantastic. She has been nominated for Slimmer of the Year, which I believe she deserves to win. In all the weeks she has been doing it she has only gained twice, which only amounted to a pound. Goodluck Mum I'm so proud of you!.

Charlotte lost another tooth, I can't believe the speed that they are falling out. So the tooth fairy had to come again. Luckily for Charlotte, Nanny has fairies at the bottom of her garden!!!.

Dad took this photo of me and Charlotte on the Audley End miniature train, our annual trip, I still love it as big as I am.

Last week we stayed at Hastings for a couple of nights. I used to live in Hastings, well St Leonard's for about 18 months. It was an interesting place to live, but I have some fond memories of the place. It was very strange going back without Les, but I did show Charlotte where we used to live.

And told her that we used to wake up to this every day.

Sadly the pier is closed as it's unsafe. Such a shame as it was a nice pier with shops and a cafe on it as well as holding a French market on there a couple times a year.

I'm off to Southport for a couple days tomorrow, to see my Sister-in-law. Will be back soon, with hopefully some layouts to share.

Thanks as always for popping by.
