Well, here we are, down in Sheffield with The Little Tykes! Emily came up with Rachel for the funeral but we haven't seen Daniel since Christmas. He'd just turned 3 then and we are amazed at how his language and conversation has come on since then. This purple ball seems to be one of his favourite toys but I can see ball games will soon get too energetic for indoor play.
We have had this weekend planned for a while but last week the building work at their home was moved forward a week, consequently there wasn't a bedroom for us. R & S quickly decided to book us into the nearby, Double Tree Hilton. An undisturbed night's sleep and a lie in! Who say's Friday, 13th is unlucky? What a Mother's Day treat! Thank you.
Child-minding will recommence at a sane hour tomorrow, possibly with a visit to the hotel pool.
