Oh my word I didn't realise that my last post was over three weeks ago. Thank goodness Georgia woke me from my reverie with this great comment:
Blimey Simmy, snow doesn't last that long. What else has been going on for you in Feb?
You see we got ourselves a new computer soon after and it's taken ages to transfer everything over. Plus the fact that I have no Photoshop on this new system to edit my pics for this 'ere blog. So I've slowly been getting to grips with Vista (which I do not like by the way) and I must look at Picasa for picture editing asap.
So what has been going on in Feb? Well, we've had Raj's 9th birthday and a lovely half term last week. Different this year as Amber was in the Cotswolds visiting old friends and Raj went to my sister's so it was just me and Rohan for a few days. We footled around, went out for lunch and snuggled up on the sofa and watched The Truman Show and Local Hero. It was really lovely to have some quality time together as middle children don't always get that do they.
My big news is that my sister has moved to the area exactly a year after we arrived here (26th Feb last year). We lived near each other in London until 1998 and always said we'd try and do it again and now that we're back in the south east they thought they'd join us. The children have all got places at local schools and sis and I are looking forward to some shared meals, shared child care and for me some exercise. My sister is a rabid walker and I've asked her to help me get into shape - but slowly. I can just imagine our mornings from now on with me puffing and panting alongside and begging her to slow down. The mere thought makes me feel faint so I think I might go and raid the fridge as it might be the last time for a while!
Will be back soon, promise ....................
