The One Show live from the Isle of Man today.

 How excited were we to go and stand in the audience for The One Show and better still get up close to the presenters Chris Evans and Alex Jones. Both were super friendly and stopped for photos and autographs. Best of all we went home and watched the show on Sky+ and there was little Z clear as day on the TV and Mummy and AJ even had a fleeting appearance too.

Winter Wonderland in the Isle of Man ....

OK well not really as we haven't had much of the white fluffy stuff. It did come down enough this evening to stick and give a white covering so we gathered the children up along with snow outdoor wear and marched up to the school grounds with the sledges (just in case this is the only dusting we get!!!).

Badminton tournaments - Jan 2013

AJ has done really well so far this year. He entered the seniors Club Players tournament in all 3 disciplines (singles, doubles and mixed) and played really well. This is a completely different experience for him as he was playing against adults. On Saturday, he entered the juniors U17s tournament and did really well. He reached the semi-finals of the doubles competition which is brilliant at his age. Well done Son xx

Happy Birthday AJ - 1st Jan 2013

Yes it's official, we have a teenager in the house!! Our little boy is now 13 years old - OMG! Who remembers as well as we do the lonnnnnnnnnnng Millenium New Year's Eve waiting for a certain baby to arrive???? He is all grown up now but will always be our baby!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!

AJ and little Z were very pleased with the Christmas presents they received from Mummy and Daddy and the special surprises from Santa. Little Z has been out already to try out the new bike and AJ has been surgically attached to the Kindle Fire since it was opened!

Look out for elf no 5 on the back row!!!!

Who needs Nigella or Jamie??!!!!

Whilst in hospital Mrs H watched a baking programme and really liked a cupcake recipe. Last weekend, I finally got to try it out to rave reviews from the family and Mrs H's work colleagues.


 
Mrs H also decided to try making something using filo pastry which she had never done before. Behold the feta, spinach and sun-dried tomato filo pie which was delicious.
 

 

A singer in the making

Little Z took part in a musical theatre Christmas production where she had a solo spot with her own microphone! She was so cute and Mummy cried!


Visit to Santa's grotto..

Which was on a double decker bus this year!!!! It was actually very effective and he was a very jolly Santa too!
