A walk around the lake

After feeding the ducks we went a little further and found Mummy and her chicks and then Mummy swan and her little ones too. The boys had a lovely day out. And Dad enjoyed himself too.
This was last weekend when we had some sun and when hubby had just returned home from his trip.

Welcome Home. . .

My son had a lot of fun decorating this cake for the welcome return of Daddy on Thursday last week.
He also made a banner and hung a paperchain 'diary' which we made a loop for everyday Daddy was away. This went more than halfway round our living room. And when we sat and worked it out we realised that in the last 52 weeks Daddy has been here for 22. Less than half of the last year. Our youngest is 7.5mths and he's missed 6 of those months. It was a bit if a shock when we looked at it this way and saw what a huge chunk he's really missed!
But that is our life and we adjust to it the way we have to. . .

The cake is half gone now and my oldest is just getting used to Daddy being home. Luckily he seems to have readjusted to the change quite well so far.

Until next time. . . :o)

Saddened by lack of Bloggy Love!

My last post was about a fundraiser for Help for Hereos. Not one single comment from any of the fellow bloggers out there in blogland. I did receive a lovely package for Mandy for the Gorgeous Louise from A Pretty Paper and Chipboard Story. But that was it. I can't count the number of times people have asked for a gift for charity and I have sent off a package of jewellery.
Perhaps I should stop the love too. . .
