Wedding Fever Has Well and Truly Hit ...

So it would seem I'm getting married in 6 Weeks Time!!! Whilst Jon was in hospital I told him my Gramps was coming to visit in November and through his drug misted mind he suggested we plan a quick wedding in the local Registry office whilst he was here.
Well...... That tiny little wedding has spread into a fairly decent sized wedding at our local church!

Even thought it's bigger than we were planning its still really only family. Parents, Siblings + offspring and partners, Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles + Cousins and then a couple of our best friends.
We had to draw the line somewhere, as if we didn't we'd end up inviting everyone and our little simple wedding that wasn't meant to cost the earth will start being more than we can handle.
We've been together long enough to not want all the bells and whistles of a normal wedding and just have it very family oriented and very simple. Say our vows in front of the people who really mean the world to …

Ru loves stopping in the street and watching the tractors and diggers go by... we get a fair few on these tiny streets, specially on the school run so when he saw this waiting for him after school he bounced around and couldn't wait to get it out of the box.

Perfect for any diehard digger fan, this Hydradig has every little detail that a real life Hydradig would have. Ru loves the way it spins around and that he can move the digger and get it to pick up all sorts of things...mainly his bre…

Introducing our newest member.... Little Link
Named after the dude from Zelda. We've had him for two weeks now, but with Jon being in hospital I haven't found the time to write about him.
When we got him he was covered in fleas, rather skinny and had very sore eyes and a bloody nose. With a quick trip to the vet and some TLC he's doing really well.
He gets on really well with our dog Ray but has still to make a friendship with my cat Indie.

The boys all love drawing and colouring in so the Colour On was a big hit with them. I love that I could just roll it out, give each of them a section and leave the colouring pencils at the end of the table and let them crack on.

There was no fighting over whose paper was whose and they happily sat their colouring in the different pictures and trying to solve the puz…

Big Ben, Back To School and Sleepy Lotion.

The start of last week I headed up to St Thomas with Jon. His back has been playing him up and he told to turn his device off as it seemed to be giving him some side effects. 5 days without it on he was still having the shakes and feeling tired.
His doctors have told him it doesn't seem to be the device thats doing so their must be an underlying issue. He's now booked into have an emergency EEG.

Whilst waiting for our train back to Kings Lynn we grabbed some lunch from Wabi's. We've been together 7 years and this was our first sushi date. He's still begging me to take him to Yo Sushi.

Tuesday was Rupert's last day at his old nursery and he came home and did his biggest line up yet. He's not fond of goodbyes and I think this was his was with coping. He didn't allow me to get rid of it and all the boys had to eat their breakfast around it on Wednesday morning.

All four boys starts back at school on Wednesday. Noah headed off into Year 5, the Twins starte…
