tall tales from the motherland

So, as my one regular reader will know, I’m back in England for 10 days to see my beautiful children.

I’ve had a great week so far, starting with breakfast at Pat and Nicky’s straight out of Heathrow. They weren’t up when I got there, but Nicky and Anna (their cute very nearly 4 year old) soon answered the door and made me coffee and breakfast πŸ™‚

Had the best day with them, taking photos and catching up on the last 18 months since I left for Oz. I really didn’t want to leave, but I still had to drive to my mum and dad’s place, go food shopping and get some rest before the long drive the next day.

Went to collect the kids the next day, also took Henry’s presents round so he could open them and play a little before we had to drive the 2 hours back to my parents place. Ella has grown loads (again) and Henry is cheekier than ever!

Drove back to Kent after a nasty road rage incident which I wont go into here, but I did notify the police for them to follow up. There are some advantages to being a photographer – I had the camera on the front seat and caught the guy raging away as he tried to run me off the motorway – he very was shocked to see a camera pointed at him – I suspect the penny was dropping that he was in deep shit. Arseholes that threaten the safety of my kids deserve everything the law has to offer. I still have no idea what his problem was either. Ah well.


Easter Sunday was spent at my youngest sister’s house with her kids and also my middle sister and her 3 kids. Mental doesn’t even cover it. Ella was very quiet as she was still very poorly from the virus she’d had for a week but we all had a good time. I ordered a mahooosive egg for everyone to tuck into

Had a great time, pics from Sunday and more tales tomorrow πŸ™‚

  1. I am very very hungry for chocolates now, thankyouverymuch.

    What sweet pics!. I’m happy you’re having a great trip even if all the kids are driving you batty. I just love Henry to pieces! He is the cutest little boy ever! (Aside from my brothers of course, but I’m a bit biased.)


    • I didn’t get to have much of that choccy as I’m a terrible choc whore and will hoover pounds of the stuff if left alone in a dark room with it – so I left it with my sisters to hoover instead. Now I want some too, delicious creamy chocalateyness, nom nom..

      The trip was brilliant and we had a great time, the kids were awesome as usual, I’m a proud daddy πŸ™‚

      What was not so good was the tonsillitis that I picked up from my daughter and have spent the last 2 weeks off work and am still fighting off *cough*
