well june finished on quite a lovely note with lots of fun and definitely a lot of splashing around, both in muddy puddles, swimming pools and the adriatic sea.
let me introduce you to minnie hurley
my dad’s mum, my nanny and ronnies nanny minnie
she’s great and she has just turned 90 years of age
so a few weeks back it was oliver’s birthday. he’s a keen foodie and loves trying out new stuff and really does all the cooking in the house. so for his birthday i settled on a bit of a jamie oliver theme. oliver had attended westminster college with jamie but bowed out after jut 6 months as cubing a whole venison really didn’t shake his bones. i bought him a subscription to jamie’s magazine which is wonderfully put together, we went for some rather lovely grub at the newly opened barbecoa, with breathtaking views of st pauls cathedral
can anyone remember such a glorious easter? the sun has shone, the paddling pool has been splashed in, kicka ball in the garden, the bbq’s lit a plenty & mucho cake eaten. the weekend has been good and then to top it all off to downe we went to xmastreefarm. now i haven’t been to a farm in years, actually that’s a bit of a porky we stayed on one over new year in helmsley north yorkshire…..but it wasn’t like this so i’m not going to count that one, however it did have a magnificant meat fridge but that’s another story……..so i haven’t been to a farm in years then! so the farm is situated in a lovely village called downe, which is very close to where oliver my husband grew up in keston. the farm is very well laid out and organised, it’s not a working farm more of a come see the animals farm. from the moment we arrived ronnie gave it the seal of approval as he came racing round the corner to see a little red tractor ride. “mummy come look it’s a red one!!! ronnie drive it?” and on he hopped. brum brum
so motherhood wasn’t a planned thing, it sort of just came along, kinda just happened. i was speechless for days, my husband however was grinning like the proverbial cheshire cat. then i had to call my new employers who had waited 3 months for me to complete my notice period for then me to rock up and say “hi, i’m here and i’m up the duff!” whoo hoo lets celebrate wasn’t really the reaction i was expecting but what i did get was an unexpected “oh well shit happens”
so people always say that children grow up and learn so fast and everyone goes yeah yeah yeah, well you know what? blooming heck they were right!
today i was introduced to the ace cafe. why has it taken for me to get to 30 something and a little more something, years of age and only to have just discovered it.
now, i have been a fan of tea for a long long time. from the very first cup in the morning, to a cheeky cup in the afternoon with a naughty bit of something on the side to help it all go down just nicely.
eating out with friends used to be quite simple; ronnie was always pretty well behaved in comparison to some and actually quite a joy, as he would scoff down anything you care to give him. watching other mothers & fathers struggle to feed their slightly feral brood with even the simplest of foods was always sad to see, and I often wondered whether they were wondering “why did we bother”.
you awake on a monday morning and in just moments
count down to friday begins
