Long time no typing , much has happened over the last couple of months , Caitlin turned eleven and celebrated with a sleepover with friends unfortunately she ended up on crutches that weekend after a particularly nasty fall of a horse so was hobbling around on her birthday but enjoyed it never the less.
Becca is now sweet 16 and yet again has dyed her fringe, she has also picked her subjects for Leaving cert this week which makes me realise how quick she is growing up. We have been looking at College courses so that she could could gear her choice towards her what she wants to do, it is mind blowing to think in a couple of years she is an adult and will be off to college.
Rachel celebrated her birthday quietly too because she got the chicken pox the day before – just like her cousin her timing was a bit off so her party had to be cancelled and a smaller affair with just us was had instead.
It was a nasty dose of the pox too so we did our best to cheer her up. I made spotty chocolate spread sandwiches in her honour and she got the spotty cup and plate ( handy we have plenty of spotty items in the house really)
The garden is returning to life too and I can’t wait to start back with the vegetables again – the strawberries are already back and looking healthy hopefully we should get a bumper crop and I love the daffodils at the backdoor.
I also got a new coat, I have wanted a mac for ages and when I saw one that was dotty well I had to have it and I love it.
And last but not least we celebrated Paddy’s day down in Navan. Becca went with the girls and we went with Caitlin . Fun day out was had by all.
