A relaxing break...maybe...

Updated Post.

I’m on my holidays this week. I decided it would be good for me to get a week away from work before the busy summer ahead. It has been a hectic term of work since Christmas and I feel pretty tired so this is my week to re-charge!
I left on Tuesday afternoon and flew to Glasgow to stay with my sister and her husband Richard for a few days. It’s been good fun to hang out with my nephew Daniel (left). We went out on the bikes on Wednesday and to the play rooms on Thursday. Today the four of us went to the Aquarium at Loch Lomond and seen the sharks which was very exciting! I’m currently in the airport about to fly to Birmingham to go and stay with Stefan, Melody & Caden until Monday which should be good fun! I’ve realised that toddlers are hard work though and I am beginning to wonder if I really thought this through when I was thinking of a relaxing week away! Children get up very early in the morning!

Update...
...I've had a great couple of days with Stefan down in Bicester, near Oxford. It's a beautiful part of the UK and the weather has been sunny!
It has also been fantastic to get some quality time getting to know Melody and Caden. He is another incredibly cute toddler and so i just had to put up a picture to prove it! I think he has bonded with his 'uncle' Neil over the last couple days as we have sung inumerable verses of 'Baa, Baa Black Sheep' and 'Round and round the garden'!

I travel back home tomorrow and so it's back to work on Tuesday! Time flies when you are on your hols!

Did they manage to take the stabilizers off the bike for you?!? Now you know kids get up early? How does nearly 5 years of 6 AM's sound, and thats before you consider the hours up overnight!

Finished reading The Shack btw,a curious read; it certainly poses a lot of different views on things, never thought of the Trinity like that before.

I never got a mention. I'm just a number. Number 4 in this case. I am a person and I have a name.
