This weekend marked a ‘first’ as E was very kindly invited for a day out to celebrate her besties birthday. Up until now, I’ve always been there for birthday parties and such-like and I must admit that it felt rather peculiar handing my Princess over to someone else for the day…
E had the golden ticket and was off to visit the local chocolate factory with her bestie! Later that afternoon E returned on cloud nine, high on sugar and chatting ‘all things chocolate’. She had been spoilt rotten and had the best day!

J meanwhile appreciated a restful weekend, though I suspect he was a little envious of his sisters big day out, thus we got the board games out and spent some one-to-one time together.
Having been thoroughly thrashed by my son whilst playing Frustration, I got even with a game of Battleships. It’s all very well playing nice, but after ten years of desperately trying to rig games so that I lose (just to please my kids) enough is enough – it was ALL OUT WAR.
The competition just got real as my ten-year-old is just like his mother (that’ll be me) – he’s out to win!
