My baby is on the front page of the local paper!
He is the one kneeling at the front! The photo was taken on 3rd July when Ben Smolden came into his school with the torch (yes when I managed to get a hold of it!) and Benjamin was chosen to be in the newspaper picture with him. So for the past two weeks we have rushed to the front door in excitement to look through the two free papers we have delivered to no avail. So I actually thought he wouldn't be in it now as it was so long ago but yesterday imagine my delight when there he was smiling up at me from the doormat! To make it even it more special the paper was printed on 26th July which would have been my Nan's 90th birthday. One for the scrapbook I think!
Anyway you can tell it's the holidays as yesterday I managed a couple of hours on the xbox with the children, cleaned out kitchen cupboards, steam cleaned the microwave, sorted out old school uniforms, tidied up the pile of junk that had accumulated in our bedroom, put two loads of washing on the washing line and scrubbed the kitchen. Worn out now!
A big hello to my newest follower Angela - nice to see you.
Thanks for looking - Off to buy big school uniforms from Solihull, Gulp.
