Boy, what a couple of weeks. Action packed and bloomin' marvellous. It began with a trip to London to stay with godmother Anna. We visited The Science Museum which Mo Bot LOVED - all those lights and interactive games for toddlers I can highly recommend. We then hired a beautiful house in Dorset for a weeks holiday over half term with my extended family - it was such a treat. The Old Monastery that has been renovated to the highest spec with enough space to everyone to relax and find a spot for themselves set in the stunning coastal village of Burton Bradstock. It was lovely to spend some quality time with my family who all live far away from us so it is rare we get such a long time just hanging out - the cousins carved pumpkins, we ran on the beach, ate lobster, played games, watched Frozen (a few times!), watched fireworks, met a real life witch.... the list goes on..... The best bit though was the group decision to swap heading out to a restaurant for the evening (which meant baby sitters and driving) and instead hiring a chef to cook for us in the house. It was spectacular food - much better than any restaurant I have been to for a while so thank you so much Matt from Fish Face Events. As if this was not enough fun and frolics we have also been to a few birthday parties where we have filled our tums with jelly and cake, burnt marshmallows on bonfires, undertaken treasure hunts and broke teeth on toffee apples..... tomorrow life is back to normal - gruel and water if we are lucky.
