Peace at Last
On our first New Year in our new house, we decided to just invite everyone up. We had four couples staying in our house (should have been five but one lot had to turn back at Carlisle with a sick child) and a bunch of folk without kids down the road in a rented house. It was a mad thing to do. Everyone had wee kids so had to get up early, but none of us had quite adjusted to this so all still stayed up really late. I was 9 months pregnant so not really fit to be host at all!
Everyone mucked in, and we had a lovely time. And we learned that for the kids to give us a break from the running and shouting, we just had to put on Baby Einstein. Bliss.
I miss our 'party house'.
