it’s Mothers Day today, so we went to Painshill Park, where we bumped into Belinda, Rory and Isabella – Belinda had texted me, but had my number wrong so we’re lucky we bumped into each other. Anyway, the weather was good, and we had a good catchup – Isabella is 1 tomorrow. Awww!

Anyway, miss Madam decided to freak me out this evening. We’re sat at the table, and she said “bye bye Bella” (several hours after we’d left them) so I sent a text to Belinda. I look back at H and she’s sat in her highchair with her eyes rolled right back – it was kind of freaky in a bit of an is-she-having-a-fit sort of way – which she wasn’t thank goodness. I asked her what she was doing, she gave me a huge grin, and then said “aaaachoooo!” about four times in a row. Bloody mad, that one.

Yesterday Alex and Joseph popped over, and J and H chased around the back yard with the football, having plenty of “MINE!” moments trying to keep hold of the ball and stop the other from taking it. At one point Joseph was sat on the step by the window, and H sat next to him, then nudged up to him a bit closer. Then again a little more forcefully… until she pushed him off. Ooops. Luckily Alex saw the funny side of it… I think this could mean H is the hardest of our babies now though, as she’s shoved Bea and shoved Joseph, and Joseph took out Sebastian, so that only leaves Charlie, but he’s too busy woo-ing Molly.

God, what’s it going to be like when they’re teenagers?
