8 of 52 weeks of happy

Good evening

I really haven't had time to take many photos this week - its been rather busy with working and RL stuff happening - the camera just hasn't had a look in!

Trying hard to get the house ready to go onto the market - the boys & I don't need this big space for the 3 of us. We need something smaller and cheaper to run and it seems a good time of year to try and find buyers. I've spent vast amounts of the week cleaning, tidying and sorting - plenty of help too - P was here all of yesterday doing outside chores whilst the boys & I got inside ready for the estate agent to take photos. Goodness knows how long we can keep it like this - we are not a naturally tidy family!

Anyhow today was a happy day - off out for a big family lunch to celebrate MIL's birthday. All four of us plus P's sibling and his family plus some cousins of MIL's too - a party of 12 and a lovely private room in a hotel in Aldeburgh. Mix into that good food and few glasses of wine then you'll get the idea.

It was a good excuse for those boys of mine to make a bit of an effort clothes wise and for me to hunt down my poshest frock and some heels. 

Here's just 4 pics which sum up today rather nicely;

1 - My boys & I - yep even in heels I am the shortest by a long way now!

2-4 - My lunch - chicken terrine, roast beef and then Eton Mess :) I now won't need to eat till Tuesday at least - totally stuffed :)

See you soon

You look far too young to have such tall and handsome sons!

I seemed to have missed the post about you and Mr VV separating (went back and found it), so sorry to hear that, it must be a difficult time for you all. All the best with selling your current home and finding a lovely new one. As you say, it's a good time of year for it.
