It's been a busy week here at The Syders. The weather pleases me at this time of year and so does the garden, so I've been pottering about and getting the garden all lovely for summer BBQ's (hopefully).
1. We had a great week with our Daughters Friend, who was visiting us from North Devon. My Daughter was bouncing around all week, thrilled to be re-united with her best Friend. We are now making plans to go and visit her in the summer holidays. I can't wait as North Devon is a very special place to us.
2. I had two trips into London to meet and wave off our Devon Friend. Living in Essex I have very easy access into London and I do like a trip in every few months. I always feel like I'm going home as I start seeing red buses, underground signs and so many people in a hurry. I love the sounds, the scents and the busy atmosphere. I love that I know where I'm going and can smoothly navigate my way around the underground as childhood memories come flooding back. I always think of my Brother (the one who now lives in Canada) when I'm in London as we spent many days jumping on and off the old Routemaster buses as children, with our carrier bag of sandwiches.
3. I have been really excited all week for tomorrows BIBs results. I didn't think for a minute that I would be in the finals when nominations were taking place, so we had arranged a weekend away as a celebration for our Daughters partner's birthday, so I wont be at the ceremony but I'll be on Twitter Friday night eagerly & excitedly watching the results. I'm so thrilled to be a finalist, and my Family are so proud. Good luck to everyone and have fun to all of you who will be at BritMums Live over the weekend. I will be at the conference next year, I promise!
How has Your Week Been?
