Fun to be 4

Sam's on Saturday, four of them played for three hours, 
at the top, Josh, Sam and Logan, Harry is on the left coming down the slide
Harry (yes Harriett) is Sam's best friend
Sam's 4th birthday
 They were left to their own fun, Josh kept a bit of an eye on them, 
the amount of noise coming from this place, was deafening.
 Not the best photo, but Purdy wanted to play with Logan
Logan stayed for two nights.
 My Avocado has now two buds? 
not sure what what these will become, but nice new growth.
 My stash has arrived, I have three fat quarters of 28 hpi, in various shades of brown,  this is for my little girl pulling her Christmas tree, and this fabric. I am behind with my baubles, I have 4 gold infill to complete, not sure if I am in the mood to do them tonight.
It was great fun to see the boys and Harry have so much fun, I think Harry outran all the boys, we enjoyed having a girl about. Saturday was all about Sam, he enjoyed all his birthday presents, we got him a large toy landrover with flashing lights, and a winch which works. Sunday was another day in our car, almost three hours to get Logan homes, time with mummy and then on to visit my brothers, and then over 3 hours to get back home.

My older brother Mel is very ill, and I am so sad to see him so sick, bloody cancer, it's taking another of my brothers. Martin is being a great brother, Mel will stay with him for as long as possible, but it's horrible, just horrible. I now worry for Martin, he is always so strong.

Work is good, I enjoyed the day in court, and have two more days for the same case, it will be interesting to see it through to completion, it's not a nice case, they never are in the family courts. I have almost finished typing my notes, it's nice to have an absorbing task to keep me busy at this time.
Sorry this post is not so good, but it's a sad time in our household.


  1. Sorry to hear about your brother x

  2. lovely pics of the kids enjoying themselves, your avacado is coming on great and putting on a lot of fresh new growth, well done.
    Cancer is a terrible illness, I wish your brother well and your family going through such a tough time.

  3. It looks like a great time was had by all at the party. I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. Cancer has affected my family in a devastating way too, I just pray for a cure so that no one else has to go through such a terrible ordeal.

  4. A lovely birthday celebration picture.
    My granddaughter just started pre-school at 31/2 and she tells me 'my bestest friend is called Alex and he's a boy nanny, not a girl!'

    I'm saddened to read that you are having to face the pathway that cancer brings to families. Wishing you love, comfort and strength for yourself and your brothers as you face the times to come. xxxx
