We saw Katherine Jenkins on Saturday night at High Lodge in Thetford Forest and she was fantastic - what a voice and she is so lovely. I gave the tickets to Jonathan for his birthday back in January and without him knowing also organised for some friends to meet us there - so he was really surprised and pleased to see them, the setting is so beautiful and we all had a great evening.
Then Sunday I became a godmother to this gorgeous little munchkin,

this is Euan and the christening service was very personal and Sarah & Neil had organised a fantastic spread back at the house, what a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
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.
Yesterday I went to Anna's class at Your Touch of Craft and made a gorgeous mini book, just got to do the journalling, think I'll be making quite a few of them as gifts.
Everything is coming to an end,Henry had his last swimming lesson of the term last night and they are allowed to take a friend for a play session, James and Henry had a fantastic half hour in the pool. And the night before we went to Hardwick heath for a barbecue with Henry's Beavers group. He has really enjoyed Beavers since he started after Easter and already has quite a few badges.
I'll leave you with this picture of Evie, taking time out at the christening to eat strawberries !
