I know - I'm not supposed to be here - I should be in Cambridge relaxing in the hotel having spent the day sightseeing and shopping HOWEVER I'm not. The reason? A 7.30am phone call from MIL to say she wasn't well - seems there's a bug going round her sheltered housing complex - she said she'd still come to be with the boys if we wanted but it wasn't a chance I wanted to take - colds yes but bugs if they can be avoided should be.
We managed to change our booking till next weekend (tbh in the grand scheme of things its only a minor blip) and instead have had an unexpected day together as a family. The sun was shining this morning so we decided to head up to Southwold. A lovely long walk along the prom was had - stopping to have our first ice-creams of 2011. We arrived quite early so there weren't too many people about - the beach had a few families with tinies building sandcastles and the Prom was fairly clear;
A quite trip around the town was necessary to - the boys disappeared off at one point leaving me alone in the shop which sells lots of CK bits - I left empty handed!!
MrVV & I have spent most of the afternoon watching the rugby - trust the Irish to scupper our plans of a Grand Slam - I'm sort of watching the Wales/France match and hoping that the French win ;)
I wish I'd taken a picture this morning when the postie arrived - I'm taking part in the birthday swap and quite a few parcels have arrived today (all hidden away till Tuesday) - his face was quite a picture as he handed the pile over to me - 'Been spending on ebay?' he asked - I didn't even attempt to explain the truth to him!
Right back to the match - the French are doing the right thing at the moment ;)
See you soon
