Woolly hats and baby pile ons

Well it's been a busy week with lots of visitors. I've felt a bit like a real person again!

Last Sunday Chrissy came to visit and bought some fabulous woolly hats for the babies (see pics below). Over lunch Charlie said 'Da da' to his Da Da and we all got something in our eye.

Monday night our new nanny, Izzy, came to talk contracts etc. It looks like this is all sorted now. I've spoken to two of her previous employers and they both described her in the same way; organised, great with the kids, reliable, sad to lose her. She's going to start settling in with the kids in March ready for April.

Tuesday Ted, Anna and baby Florrie came to visit - Ted even brought lunch! Florrie is nearly as long as Beth now and both have just come out of 0-3month clothes. Beth is 10 months and Florrie nearly 3 months.

Wednesday our lovely Homestart lady came. She's called Jo and comes every week to help me with the babies. It was well timed this week as Matt was away Tuesday night to very late Wednesday. Unfortunately his great Aunt Phillis died so he went to her funeral.

Ted came back Wednesday night to help me with baby bedtime. Erin and Jamie came down to play with the babies too - I think the babies couldn't quite believe the amount of fuss they got this week!

Thursday daddy was around so that was a great for the babies (and mummy!). They were so excited when they saw him. I'm pretty sure Charlie wee'd - he was shaking so much with excitement.

Friday I thought was a day alone with the babies but no....Jo and Chris came round at lunch time. They both had the babies giggling and smiling all the time. It was a lovely visit.

Honestly it's been lovely and I have really enjoyed having a social life. There may be more of this too as its now 6 months since Charlie came off oxygen. This means we can now mix with others. Hurrah!

Tonight I'm staying in with Matt having a games night and there may be wine. So cheers to that and also raise a glass to Phillis who was a lovely lady - tiny in stature but not in personality. Cheers!
