I’ve not blogged much this week, mainly because I’ve been quite busy (and as I was away the weeks before, I hadn’t scheduled many posts either!). Last Sunday was a baby shower for my lovely friend Cheryl (the first shower I’ve *ever* been to – they aren’t that big over here). Then my beautiful friend Amber came over from Sweden to see me (Peachy-girl, it was awesome to catch up. We are oh-so-excited to come see you next year if you are not on field season!). And then I headed back into school to start prepping for the new school year (as ever, I am super excited to dive back in. And as ever you are all welcome to mock me when I post oooh, about halfway through next month about how shattered I am!).
I loved this – as well as lots of games, we also filled in little forms for the baby and the parents to read. Such a beautiful idea! This is my work in progress. Chez’s sister Sarah arranged the shower and it was absolutely amazing.
Thank you so much for including me, ladies, and all the very best for the arrival of the wee one!
On Sunday evening, this beautiful girl arrived to see me!
We chatted and visited and walked and shopped and watched a tonne of chickflicks and bad TV. I love how we just jump straight back in where we left off, whether we’ve been apart two years or two hours!
We also went to Westminster Abbey. Which cost £15 pounds??? I was scandalised. And you couldn’t take pictures. So I just snapped a photo of the exorbitant price instead…
On Tuesday Amber flew home…
…and now we are firmly into the ‘tidying and organising’ phase of back to school. This was my classroom at its worst point…I will get there but I always like to get everything sorted and cleaned well ahead of classes! I’ll be working through next week, then it’s meeting days, and then? The boys are back!
