Half term break

A nice tour of friends and family.

Walking in the Cotswolds
and picnicing!

Playing at Grandma's
And a train trip into London for a dinosaur petting zoo visiting from Australia and a production of "The Queen's Knickers" - both part of 'Imagine' - a children's literary festival.

and to play in igloos.

Friends near Macclesfield

with whom we had a pre-emptive celebration of Kitty's upcoming birthday!
Back home and fun with cousins and second cousins. Mr B hadn't met this new addition before.

A trip to the local playground is a must...
...and the kids enjoy it too!

Back to school and 'normality' tomorrow.

Last weekend we were dancing the night away at a ceilidh for an  A Rocha friend's 40th birthday. We didn't know many people, but seeing this couple again, after a gap of about 11 years, was a lovely surprise!
