So they were the lows BUT there was a high too. Oh yes there was! My kids entered a competition in Borders book shop to win theatre tickets for The Jungle Book show and Abigail WON! Woot woot!. Soooooo (thankfully before dental torture) we had to go to Borders this aft to meet the cast of the show and get presented with the tickets and have photos taken. Eeeeeeh it was fab. For a starters we got there before the cast so the staff at Borders nipped upstairs to Starbucks and got us all a drink (if you want to get round Joz - caramel macchiato does it EVERY time. I would bathe in it given half a chance). Ahhh bliss! The cast arrived in costume and looked ace. The kids were overwhelmed by it all. They were so impressed. The cast and staff at Borders made a real fuss of the kids which was great. Anyhow they posed for many a pic and I took a few albeit crap ones. It's going to be in the local paper in the next couple of days. Sooo on Friday night we're all going to the theatre for free. Really can't wait :o)
Here are a couple of pics (they are a bit kacka because I still don't know how to work my camera properly!)
I thought I'd also share a couple of pics from Sunday when we went to visit my big brother (who turned 40 on Saturday) 'cos I managed to snap a couple of the kids that I rather like.
This is Abigail and my nephew Benjamin who believe it or not is only 6 months old. He looks huge in this pic but then he is going to be a big boy for sure as his mum is 6' and his dad (my brother) is 6'6"
And then there is this one of Maddie the madster who most certainly is mad. Bless her and her cheesy grin. lol
I also have pics to share from Saturday when my good friend Ruth came a visiting with her 2 boys. I'm going to have to do that in a seperate post as my fingers are aching after this mammoth blog post.
