Oli was awarded his first stripe in Jujitsu last night and was praised by Andrew saying, “he’ll be a purple belt in a year at this rate” . Well done Oliver.
Oliver signed up to do basketball this morning at 9.30am then played a few games outside at edge hill before going over to Lyndsey and Dwight’s to kayak down the canal. What a great day for it too.
I was very proud of Amelia today as she performed her dances in front of quite a large audience and loud music. She smiled and executed the moves beautifully. Well done Milly-moo…..oh and she got in the final and received a fifth place trophy. Woohoo.
I got to meet and have a training session with one of the best England players: Jade Clarke, who was fresh from winning a bronze at the world championships in Liverpool. We got to hold both medals (commonwealth gold) and chat to her. She was so lovely.
Can’t believe that Amelia is in year 8 and Oliver is in year 6 now….. Growing up so fast.
We had a wonderful time in la calleta, Tenerife with Nana pat and grandad paddy – we stayed at villa Maria which was fabulous. Clean, spacious and with moet for breakfast .. wonderful. The days were spent mainly by the pool with some parascending, scuba diving and paragliding thrown in. We also had some lovely food by the sea whilst watching local children five from the rocks.
Last weekend (Saturday) we decided to go for a bike ride to bickerstock. It was great!! We saw lots of people we know and sat with Mary, Paula and Jane whilst having a couple of drinks and listening to the music.
Oliver turned turned ten yesterday and the weather came out to celebrate too. We began the day with the surprise of going to jump division inflatable park with Ayman, Sammi, Seb, Layla, Freddy, Reuben and Amelia. After an hour of exhaustive
bouncing slushies were consumed and we made our way home to eat pizza and city the cake. Everyone played in the garden until dinner and mummy brought out a chili for everyone. A lovely day. Oliver loved his presents and played a number of games on his table tennis table.
The end of the walk and Amelia “needed” to do some hand stands.
