June 2009


Well, the holidays have officially started with a celebratory dinner, lots of icecream with fresh pineapple and strawberries (and a very apologetic waiter as my steak was bien cuit instead of saignant, so I got a new one and now I’m stuffed as I had one and a half steak and a double portion of croquettes and I still had to finish half of youngest strawberry coupe) and a rented movie (The curious case of Benjamin Button – very good indeed!). We invited the neighbours over and had a cosy evening. Ooh – we forgot the extra tub of Ben & Jerry’s we bought at the movie renting shop! That’s for next time then 😀

And yes,  youngest (the left one) went through with flying colours, no fails all Bs and Cs and an A for english of course 😉 Eldest (you guessed it, the right one :D) scraped through with an E for maths now but an overall 50%, so she can go to the next year and nope, no holiday work but a sterling promise she will try hard from day one next school year. Oh, but she did have an A for english too 🙂

So woohooh and tralaa and we’re off for 9 weeks of sleeping in and eating whenever we like 😀

Mother’s pride and joy – still 😀

The girls are growing up fast – I can’t look over their heads any more, certainly not when they’re sitting on my lap (which they still like to do :D) Sometimes they’re fighting – like all sisters do – and sometimes they are just too cute for words – like teenagers can be, still 😀 Don’t tell them I said so though 😀

This afternoon they will get their final report and I’m sitting here fingers and toes crossed they will pass – maths can be a demon so any good karma sent their way will be gratefully accepted 🙂
