taking a break from getting ready, packed and sorted to go away. We're off away this weekend visiting my parents for my dad's 60th, seeing my baby nephew who was born on Tuesday and catching up with other family and friends. I'm very much looking forward to it!! Chomping at the bit in fact.
Andy is playing the guitar in prep for a Street Pastors day tomorrow where he's leading worship.
Matilda and I both had our hair cut today - I'm a bit shorter (again!) and M has a new neat bob just under ears. She looks grown up and cute.
I love scrap-booking and baking and I got to do both today and I feel great! I finished the album I've been working on (watch this space for a post including all the layouts!)
I'm looking forward to the routine coming back next week with work and life separated as they should be. It's been difficult working at home more through August as I felt I never gave my all to work or Matilda. But I seem to have got done what I needed to and we've had some great family time at Great Notley, Barleylands, baking, singing, doing craft, watching films, gardening and having silly times!
Toy Story was great - M loved it and danced at the front of the cinema during the out-takes!
I'm privileged to be leading an away day on Wednesday for Restored which is Tearfund's project campaigning against domestic abuse.
In 4 weeks I'll be in Tennessee with Emily and Jack - oh yes!
I didn't even realise X Factor had started again - frankly I'm waiting for Strictly...
That'll do for now, enjoy the Bank Holiday and thanks for stopping by!
