Hi one and all I have been awol for a few months as life has been pretty hectic. I don't even know where to start. In April my daughter Anne her husband Christian and baby Holly bought a new house which was exciting for everyone. They should have moved in early April but then the guy who was selling the house changed the moving date by 4 weeks so they all moved in with me and my other two daughters Angela and Emma. They had to put a lot of stuff in storage but as with any young child there is always lots of things you need to travel with. We were kind of bursting at the seams for a few weeks but it was also good fun and thankfully we all got on ok. I did find it hard to keep up with my excercise regime however so that went out the door.

No sooner had we moved out the daughter and son-in-law than I started decorating two rooms for the wedding. My daughter Michelle was getting married on 31st July and 3 of her friends were going to be staying with us as well. The decorating was quite extensive and I'm not too sure when I realised it just wasn't going to be done on time but realise I did. Michelle lives in London so she didn't really know how far I'd gone with the decorating which was probably a blessing in disguise. Emma my youngest daughter was having one of the rooms and she wanted to decorate it herself. She fancied a vintage theme. It took some time for her to find the right paper and carpet..and so far she hasn't found the right furniture but she's working on it.

When Michelle arrived home a few days before the wedding she was a bit surprised there was an empty room and she wondered where her visitors would be staying. Indeed they stayed in a blow up bed and a z-bed in my front room. It was very cosy. Thankfully they all saw the funny side of it.

The wedding was a great day the sun shone..eventually, the food was good the

wine even better and the dancing was spectacular everyone had a fantastic time and there were many sore heads in the morning.

That just about brings be up to date with where I have been and what I have been doing. Oh! and I am going to be a granny for the second time next February.
