Glorious summer

The weather has been absolutely glorious for days.  At the weekend, we spent a lot of time at the park with the girls as the whole family took advantage of the fabulous weather.  Our garden is looking wonderful but is needing a lot of watering as the sun is so fierce during the day.  There has been very little rain lately, so it looks like we could have the very hot summer that we’ve been promised by the weathermen.

June is a busy month for all of us.  My brother Jase and Charlotte celebrate their second wedding anniversary today.  My in-laws celebrate their Ruby wedding anniversary this weekend.  We celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary in 3 weekends’ time; that same weekend, my cousin Jeff will be getting married in Toronto.  We are really sorry that we won’t be there to help Jeff and Leanne celebrate their special day.

So this weekend, we are all going to York for Suzanne and Peter’s Ruby wedding anniversary.  There is a big event planned for Sunday with family and friends, with a hog roast being the centrepiece of the festivities.  We are all really looking forward to it and having a long weekend out of London.

Next week, I am going to view some rental accommodation in Richmond for the family, as our house sale appears to be reaching the final stages.  We are really pleased to have got here so quickly and can’t wait for everything to be finalised.  Moving to Richmond will get us closer to the nursery and make our lives a lot easier as commuting will be less.

Once we are safely settled in Richmond, we intend to kick back and enjoy the glorious summer ahead!

Happy Birthday to Grandma!

May is a month of birthdays – we had PoPo’s (Grandma Maggie’s) birthday at the beginning of the month and Grandma Suzanne’s birthday today at the end of the month.  So just for our two Grandmas, here’s a special rendition of the Birthday Song!

Happy birthday!
