Happy Father's Day

To everyone who is indulging in a little spoiling of the fathers in their families today - I do hope you are enjoying yourselves. We are doing it by our traditional method here in our household -

Himself is busy enjoying his breakfast and being loved up by his girls. That's what it is all about, after all.

And now I am going to do that mother thing. Overflow with pride. The girls were great last night. The whole show was wonderful but - of course - I was focused on two dances in particular. Helen and Emily only joined this dance school in September after doing most of their dancing on the Isle of Wight. The classes they went into here, according to the grades they were dancing, put them in with girls who were quite a bit older than them - three to four years older on average. That can be more than a little intimidating for young girls. So to see them hold their own last night, enjoy themselves and give it their all was that much more satisfying.

I have a couple of photos here. My camera flash was not up to the distance involved so Emily's in particular is very dark, but I am showing you because I want you too see the height difference between her and the only other girl in her modern class. Let's just say that where Emily was robbed in the height genes department her partner wasn't.

And here is Helen with the teenage girls she dances tap with. Helen is on the far right -

So today we are just slobbing about eating big breakfasts and being lazy until the girls have to go to their friend's birthday party. I'm feeling the need for a takeaway tonight.



  1. Woo hoo for the girls - can`t wait for the school play, sports` days. I`ll be the pushy mother cheering on her son...hope daddy has been spoiled rotten by his girls and you`ve had a great day!
