We had a fantastic day out in Funchal, had lunch with a friend and then took the mad toboggan ride down the streets with just two men holding ropes to control you - scary! And also took the cable car down, which was fantastic.
It was so lovely to get away and relax, the children were great (okay, we had the odd Evie tantrum!) and we just read and played (- lot's of crazy golf) and spent time together, which is what it is all about.
And now we are home and the weather is fantastic - hurray. Jonathan and I spent a lovely Sunday at Sudbury's cricket ground watching the Lord Taverner's celebrity eleven play Sudbury, whilst sitting in a marquee eating a three course lunch and then afternoon tea. We did a bit of celebrity spotting - Chris Tarrant, Mike Gatting and Fraser Heinz to name a few.
I have now managed to catch up on the washing - although not the ironing and am waiting for a kit to arrive from Cocoa Daisy, you know, the Ali Edwards Travel Album one, so I can get all my holiday photos scrapped!

This week has been spent trying to get ready for our holiday which we go on this weekend. My head is so full I cannot tell you, but I have got most of the mundane tasks done - ie: cutting the grass, filing the paperwork, cleaning the silver etc. So now to the packing, which I hate ! It's not the clothes' it's all the 'stuff' you need to take including things to keep the children amused. We are going on an HPB holiday to Madeira. Hope the weathers good, I so need the rest.

which is a lift of one Anna did for Easy Craft Projects, how cute is that ! It's going to go in Evie's room. Have also made some anniversary/birthday and christening cards ready for the rest of the month.
My best friends son is being christened on Sunday afternoon and I am going to be his God-mother, so exciting, hope to have some photos to share of that next week.
My lovely husband has just arrived home with some beautiful pink roses for me, so I am off to make his dinner. Have a great weekend xx
