Where the time goes no one knows. The last three weeks have been full of things! A had a school trip to the Leicester Space Station one week and came home buzzing about the things she saw. L went to a pizza restaurant one morning and got to watch and assist the chefs in action. She loved every minute and enjoyed coming home with the pizza she made, to share with her sisters. The following week we also had a teacher meeting for L where we heard about how enthusiastic she was about learning and how sweet and motherly she was toward any new/shy/quiet classmates. Awwww! We had a workshop with H and her year group too, that proved more great fun and was very informative.
A and H also went to a surprise evening out with Mum to their very first ballet - The Nutcracker! It was a special night and A in particular was absolutely enraptured with it. She cannot wait to go to her next ballet! L attended her first birthday party here and had a ball. We all also had a couple of marshmallow toasting sessions over our fireplace over the last few weeks... and there will be many more in our future ;)

The month started with the second half of school term resuming. It was a fun and busy few weeks on the school front. H had a trip to a transport museum, A to the space station, L to a restaurant. There were a couple of workshops, H received a certificate at assembly and we had a teacher interview for L. Along with all the other regular school things :)
The girls have also enjoyed a few playdates with lovely friends, the kids in the street and a birthday party. We had a lovely bonfire and fireworks night with the people in our street - much to everyone's delight and enjoyment. We had an entertaining visit to the doctor's office where the poor nurse thought she was going to remain deaf permanently after giving L vaccinations. The first time any of our girls had screamed like that for their vaccinations. It was loud... but amuzing :)
L and I had our embroidery date this month - such a delight that all three my girls have enjoyed these trips and trying their hands at this craft. There have been regular weekly walks with a friend - an opportunity for a little extra exercise and getting to explore our suburb on foot. Lots of the usual life goings on, Hubster spent a week in Spain for work, and as the temperatures dropped we had fun roasting marshmallows.
Many Christmas gifts were finally finished and sent off to their various destinations. And now we start thinking about our first Winter Christmas here! Exciting!
