Thank Pimms Its Friday


Good afternoon - long time no speak. Its been so busy here this week in the VV household - life has been hectic and many things have happened - sadly very few photos taken or much time to write about them. Add to that the fact that I've been doing admin work for MrVV and you'll hopefully excuse my absence from blogging and commenting.

It has been so warm here this week - I think one morning was slightly wet (a welcome relief) but otherwise its been hot, hot, hot. Not ideal for sports events nor for just every day activities. The weekend is promising much the same so I expect I shall spend time trying to keep cool.

I don't think I'd be a good blogger if I didn't share the good news with you all. I often mention my 2 boys and the various things they do - some good - some not so (losing a school polo shirt with 10 days of term left in one that springs to mind - nevermind, he's learning about using the washing machine ;)).  Well its been a good week :) 

Eldest has been selected for the Suffolk Youth Games this Sunday - he is part of the badminton squad - he got his team t-shirt last night and reluctantly agreed to pose for a pic first thing this morning;



As you can see - he's not quite awake!! Mind you it was about 7.30am!!

Last night was little sons school awards evening - he was playing there with the brass band AND he had been nominated for an award. Until they are actually called up they have no idea what they are getting - he was shocked & surprised to receive 2 awards - one for French and the other for Music.  Again he was dragged outside this morning for a quick photo shoot;



The reason for the early morning pictures is, I've been to see my Grandma today and of course I can't just tell her whats been happening - she likes to see pictures too!!

Little son is off on a wild camp this weekend with some of his scout troop - we've packed for all eventualities - suncream and raincoat!!

Keep cool and enjoy your weekends.
