Autumn 2014

So it's definitely kids birthday party season and our girls are literally inundated with party invites, this is wonderful to feel like our children are welcomed and accepted by the local community. A new venue for us was a party at the Playland Skate Center a roller skating rink which truly felt like a blast from the past but great fun nevertheless.



I have decided after a month of the children being at school I am happy for them to go into school on the bus, thankfully the bus route, timings and driver are all the same as before the summer and the bus driver is a lovely lady who is very friendly to me but also tells me to 'hurry up' when I'm taking too much time giving the girls kisses goodbye!

After a recent discussion with a new American friend of mine I did some research and without a doubt I am now completely switching to organic foods here (except take-aways of course no ones perfect after all!). 
Shockingly America is still using a high quantity of ingredients in some foods which are BANNED in Europe and legally does NOT have to label whether their food products contain GM ingredients or not, an interesting read below...

Tonight we have our fourth set of visitors arriving from England this is always an exciting time for all concerned, they are looking to relax and enjoy themselves :)
