Hi again everyone. Well, we have had a real taste of sunshine and warm weather for the past couple of days, and very nice it has been too. Doesn't it make such a difference when the sun is shining?!
Once again I have been trawling through my photos to come up with some more Sunday Snaps, and I hope you enjoy the selection I have for you today.
This first one was taken at the beach a couple of weeks ago, when the weather was still decidedly chilly!
I love this next one of Eli, which was taken on my birthday last year. As you can see, his hair is still quite long, and he still has quite a baby face. This year, he is fast growing up, and that babyness is starting to disappear :(
The following is another one of Eli, again taken on my birthday last year. It was the first time that he had been to a 'posh' restaurant and here he is sat at the table. He obviously knew that something special was going on and was quite excited about it all!
This next one is of Alfred when they were here visiting in April of last year, when the weather was absolutely fabulous, so we are hoping that it will be the same this year, when the family arrive, once again, from France, in a couple of weeks time. Eleanor will be keen to go surfing again!
I took this photo of the house yesterday under a lovely blue sky. Not much colour yet, I'm afraid, because it is a little too early for the tubs and hanging baskets.
This next photo is of daughter number 2, who actually had a couple of days away without the children the week before last, when she travelled up from Devon to near London to celebrate a friend's special birthday. Daughter number 1 also travelled over from France with a couple of friends, so it was lovely for them to all meet up together.
Here are my two girls together, no doubt getting ready for a fantastic evening!
This last photo is a bit special - it is of my mum as a little girl (on the left) with her brother and sister.
My grandad must have carried this photo all through the First World War with him, because when I turned over the photo, this is what I saw -
I do hope that I haven't put in too many photos today, or bored you too much with the little accompanying stories! No doubt I'll see you all later in the week. Until then, take care ....
