M’s 9th Birthday!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, hence no blogging – the reason for this is because it was M’s 9th birthday!


She looks so much older!


We had my parents here for her birthday weekend, and while they were here we managed to fit in a visit to House of Illustration to see Lauren Child’s Doll’s House.  It was a lovely and interesting exhibition, though the museum itself was a tad small considering the entry price.

The following weekend my sister and her family came to stay and so M had friends and cousins here for her birthday party.  J did an amazing job of entertaining them all for two hours and even extended the party by half an hour because he didn’t want it to end! 😀

With all this activity going on I’ve definitely not been feeling as flat.  The girls have been busy with all sorts of things – imaginative play; sums; card games; cooking; den building; dancing; craft; climbing trees; and Minecraft.
