Lula

What a lovely Autumn day today:) We went to the park to discover that Lula has outgrown her tricycle. So we went and got her a little mini micro scooter, which she just loves!

Marian’s last night

Thank you Marian

Granny Marian gave us a night out tonight (yippee). Thank you!

We went for fantastic sushi and hot sake and then went for a great desert a The Queens. I had a chocolate brulee, which sounded a little suspicious at first, but was yummy-licious!
We really had such a lovely evening:)

Cornwall

We have just come back from Cornwall where we have spent a week with Dora, Ian and the girls.

Since there was no summer in June and no summer in July, we were certain that August will be great. But no:) It was pretty bad. Grey, rainy and windy.

Picturesque Cornwall is lovely but it was certainly one of the most boring holidays ever since we chose a tiny town with small winding roads with no footpaths and lots of cars. It’s only when you have a small child that you really appreciate things like that. It was very unsafe to walk around and the beach became after the first day very muddy/rocky and full of seaweed. In other words not ideal and I regretted the choice of place. St Ives would have been much better:)

We managed to have a couple of nice days in the Eden Project, Monkey Sanctuary and the Aquarium in Plymouth which Lula really enjoyed. Anyhow life is too short and we will not worry about this one too much just be more careful in the future and choose what is right for us.

Volleyball

All is fun and games. And I could survive my team mates (big muscles guys) rough playing. Even though sometimes I had serious bruises. But it went a little too far this Wednesday, when I ended up in hospital after being elbowed in the nose. I got of lightly as it was not broken, just a deep cut, lots and lots of bleeding and pain! I could have had a nose going west, or broken teeth. Instead I started getting a blue eye, a swollen nose and probably a scar.
It’s not rugby guys! It’s volleyball.
P.S. It really sucks that we are off to Cornwall tomorrow. No pics for me this summer!

Fred and Lula

Another hot and stunning summer day.

We met up at the paddling pool with Rachel and Danny.:)

Lula was holding hands with Fred, who tried at times to free himself, but she held a strong grip. He did manage to run away a few times but his attempts were not successful as Lula followed closely or protested by crying.

Innocent Festival

We went to the festival today. Since Phil was organising all the bands, Lula got backstage and even went on the stage, showing off her belly button to everyone. It was very funny.

It was so hot. Perfect weather for a day out in the park! We sat with friends and ate lots of icecream, cake and other naughty food:)
