Well, it’s all back to normal here, most of the snow has gone, apart from the giant snowdrifts that still line the street of the primary school, so that’s fun for the children to climb over in the morning!
Been a pretty busy week here with work for both Asa and I, but it has been much easier without all the children home!
Day 63 – Today I finally got to go and see all of the snow at the fort, Neva and Lochlan decided they would like to stay home and look after the smaller ones, which meant I could go for a walk with Asa, Eowyn and Merrie!
Day 64 – Thankfully most of the snow had disappeared on the back roads to Norwich as I had a bloggers brunch at Chapelfield, which was lovely and involved cups of tea and lots of delicious pastries! As well as catching up with Boo Roo and Tigger Too, who had brought Piglet along and she was just adorable! That evening Neva and I made our way back to Norwich for the opening night of Kite Runner which was brilliant.
Day 65 Now that everyone is back in education, Merrie and I can resume our morning walks to the beach, although we could only walk along the prom today as the bad weather and storms had made the beach pretty awful, there was also signs of palm Oil and a few dead guillemots, and various sea creatures had been washed ashore, there have been reports further up the coast of dogs dying from eating dead shellfish, so we are not taking any chances! Now that Merrie is becoming much bigger it is starting to get difficult to hold on to her, so lots of owners of large breed dogs had recommended the dogmatic, she wasn’t keen to start with but she is getting much better and we can walk along without me at risk of being pulled along the promenade!!
Day 66 I cheated slightly as this is actually a pic from Viggo’s preschool as I didn’t have my camera, he has been so excited because preschool had a delivery on Monday of six duck eggs, with a hatch date of Wednesday, the children have been fascinated and I have never seen Viggo so excited, he is looking forward to going back in on Monday for duckling cuddles! So far 5 of the 6 eggs have hatched.
Day 67 – Happy Half Birthday Merrie x Today Merrie is 6 months old, and her half birthday falls on what would have been my nan’s 102nd birthday. She passed away in 1995, so she never got to meet Asa or any of the children, we were very close and I still miss her very much, Xene’s middle name is Elizabeth in memory of her.
Day 68 With all the snow last week the children missed World Book day, so the high school did it today, Kaide went as a Hobbit and Neva was Clarisse from Percy Jackson.
Day 69 Today has been a quiet day, Asa has gone off to play rugby, and Viggo has taken to wearing his Pikachu hat around the house, it always makes me smile because he copies things that Tyrus does, usually about 2 weeks later! I guess it has got to the point that although three years apart, they are now at the same level and Viggo will overtake Tyrus in the not too distant future, I expect to notice it more once he starts school. I have a feeling he will become Tyrus’s protector!
And that’s our week, snow all gone and now on a countdown to Easter holidays and Xene coming home xxx
