Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well - I'm sorry I havent got round to posting part three yet of my essay - Ive been so busy with the kids here.

Its been a lovely week having all the children here. It's been ages since we had all five children here together - First time Emma has stayed with us for about two years. She will be 18 this month!! She was fairly distant from us from about the age of 15 til about 6 months ago and she slowly let us back in her life again.  I missed her so much and Im so glad she is around again. Lovely for me to have another girl in the house. 

We have had a lovely time together these past few days!!  John thanked me for making his children so happy!  He has had to work all week and hasnt been able to be there for them as much as he would have wanted.  He doesnt need to thank me I enjoy having kids around.  They grow up too quick and we have to make the most of them while they are young.

My little Joe has been at a football training school all week and they get their medals tomorrow - a little presentation afternoon.  Awww cant wait for that - he has really enjoyed himself this week.  He must be tired!

Well John's children go back tomorrow - Emma brought her car down so she is driving them home - then  my kids go to their dad after tea - blimey it will feel empty here tomorrow evening!

Love Laine xxxxx

Hi Laine ~ your set up sounds just like mine !!! I've had Mart's boys to stay several times ~ I always thoroughly enjoy myself. And luckily the girls love them to bits as well ~ much fun is had when we're all together !! I can just imagine the great week you've had ~ I'm so happy for you :-)  And can we see pics of Joe getting his medal ?? That would be lovely! And if I were you girl I'd enjoy the peace and quiet tomorrow night, get a takeaway, candles, good film....... ;-)

Hi! Laine
Bet you have had a great week, but busy, with everyone altogether...and I'm sure the 'House' feels so empty when they go...nevermind, you and John have a good Weekend and relax together.
