…that is a good thing as it means I have been busy!!! I have enjoyed the franticness put upon myself in my own “crazy as a box of frogs” way.
- Two school outings
“Boby Boy” at the theatre with Miss T and her class and a trip to “Silos”, which is the bibliotheque in Chaumont, with Miss E’s class..
- House full(10)
A happy houseful of Family Cantillion/Bulley for a five day celebration of Miss T’s birthday. A good trial run for NY too. Lots of cooking and prepping. Was great to be able to cook food for my Nana that was all gluten free, the only exception being the party cake. The funniest thing about the week was my spread sheet magnetised to the fridge door, who’d have thunk it!!
- Party of 8(6 being petites filles Francais)
This was a roaring success, even if I do say so myself, all parents dropped and left, the girlies made necklaces and decorated boxes and went ape with autocollants (stickers), they are super cher over here and thanks to Mampy were in endless supply due to a last minute dash in sunny Stroud. Eyes were out on stalks…Afternoon tea with polka dots, bunting and cakes stands went down a treat!! I think I could have done away with party bags, as everyone was a little shocked that it was a party hosted by us and we were giving out gifts!!
- Surprise presentation for 70 enfants in French on English mealtimes and food.
OMG…I have never been so nervous in my whole life. They asked me back for a talk about our differing Christmas traditions.. I didn’t say yes, but for some unknown reason, I didn’t say NO either…Food went down well and each of the children said thank you to me in English and they loved the scones!!
- Weekend getting battered by rapids and swirly slides at Center Parcs!! Ouch but great fun..
All battered and bruised, but lots and lots of fun. Mr B and I went when we were kids and all the memories came crashing back..quite literally.. against the side of the savge river!!
