At Papee's House & Lit de Roi

He said he'd made some improvements. What he'd actually done was install a wooden play set (slide & swings) and a pool. The kids think it is awesome! They like being at Papee's house!

Last night they just went mental after the drive/flight/drive down here. But today was a good day! They played in the field and on Papee's park. But by lunch time they were itching to go out. We drove them down to the lake and found a shady spot to camp out, shoved arm bands of Jack & Tom and let them splash about in the water with me. They loved it! Jack loved spotting little fish in the water and Tom went loopy when 4 little fish started to nibble him on the feet and legs!


I had to bribe them out of the lake with a dip in Papee's pool before dinner. No way they were getting out of the water otherwise! But then I had the same issue getting them out of the pool. In the end I think it was shear hunger that dragged my elder two sons out of the water and, reluctantly, under the shower for a soaping up and hosing down!

It's a shame that Georgie is a bit small too join in right now. We have no baby-float for him here like we did in Wales. But he had a good bit of bonding time with his Dad for a change - it's usually me playing with George while Hubby dies the big kid stuff with Jack & Tom - and he seems perfectly happy.

Think we're off to find another lake-beach tomorrow!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
