I love this photo. It was taken when Mark and I went down to London to see The Lion King. It was a couple of years ago now, but that year we had a resolution to do more things just the two of us. Obviously the kids are the most important parts of our lives but we had got to a point where we went nowhere without them. If we were out shopping and decided to grab a coffee or a mcdonalds I would feel bad we were doing it without the kids.
So this trip we asked my Mum to babysit, and off we went to London for the day! It was a brilliant day out, and the kids had a great time with Nanny. I think the fact I spent a small fortune on gifts for them while we were there might have helped too :p
When Mark and I first got together he started to think of a pet name for me. He called me baby, sweetheart, honey, but none of them sounded right. Then one night he txt me and said 'Night Darlin' and it stuck :)
Speaking of getting into trouble, I'm sure my kids try to make me look bad at times! Cameron came into my room the other night looking all scared:
Cameron - Mummy Im worried about you.
Me - Why love?
Cameron - Because you drink lots of alcohol in the morning and they said on the news at school today alcohol is bad.
Me - I don't drink alcohol in the morning love! Where did you get that idea?!
Cameron - You drink coffee and you said we're not allowed coffee because it has alcohol in it.
Me - No, I said it has caffeine in it.
Cameron - Is caffeine and alcohol not the same thing?
Me - No. *sigh*
Expecting a call from social services soon about my drinking!
