Of course this isn’t of the slightest interest to Beloved as he works in the city ~ but I’m super excited

After a nights stay in a hotel, off to the airport we go ~ then Moo will be taken on his first ever plane flight …goodness I hope this goes well

So where are we off too ??

Bangkok
Beloved have been here several times before so know our way around

I have an itinerary arranged that would make a travel agent envious, this includes the railway market, floating market plus something I think Moo will love ~ a long tail boat ride under the bridge on the River Kwai

Anyhoo must dash

I’ll fill you in on all the tales of our travels when we get home Bye ❤

All Dressed Up …. And Yes We Did Have Somewhere To Go

Last Wednesday 12/9/2018 was one heck of a day !!  firstly it was Beloved & I’s wedding anniversary … we have been together … well since forever LOL

If that wasn’t enough of a celebration it also happened to be a very special day for 2nd Born ~ his graduation, it took place in the amazing Lincoln Cathedral

Lincoln Cathedral
An artistic shot of Lincoln Cathedral at sunset just moments before the start of 2nd Born’s ceremony

Sorry to bore yo but I’m now about to subject you to a ‘Proud Mummy Moment’ captured for prosperity

Jacob and I 12 9 2018
I was fighting back emotional tears during this shot PS. note my awesome vintage dress 🙂

Sorry for the photo heavy post …… NOT

3 generations
3 generation of the Von Parry family ~ even though baby ‘Fox’ is sooo totally over this photo taking business

I had to smile to myself during the ceremony ~ the graduates from the School of Education were first to grace the stage and everyone clapped politely, yet when every single one of the nurses graduated there were huge cheers & shouts from their peers and family members ~ what a awesome feeling to know my boy and his cohorts are sooo supported as they enter the big wide world

If you jump right over to here and skip to 50 mins 31 seconds (approximately LOL) you can see 2nd Born’s ‘moment’

PS Moo asked me to include this photo at the end of this post

Moo 9 on 12.9.2018
A future graduate in the making I wonder ?

Thank you for bearing with me through out this post … you may now return to your everyday life 🙂

 

A Surprise For Moo

Would you believe Moo is 9 next week?? for a few weeks now Beloved & I have been harbouring a surprise for him. Last night was the night for project ‘Amazement’ to commence

August 2018
For a boy who loves dinosaurs only one thing would fit the bill the superb show ‘Walking With Dinosaurs’
Walking with Dinosaurs
These bad boys are LIFE SIZE ….. just wow

 

T. Rex
Moo’s absolute favourite the magnificent T. Rex

At the end of the show Moo burst into tears …. Beloved & I were mortified until Little Man uttered the words “This is the best day of my life” Awwwww bless him ❤

A Special Guest Blogger

Grandma lets my big brother Moo write on her blog now and again & she said at the grand old age of 2 months I could do my first guest post … obviously she will be doing the typing I’ll be just laying here looking adorable 🙂 Sooooo what does a babe have to post about WELL …

Lets talk sleep

no sleep
Who needs sleep ?? not me that’s for sure

Daddy has been studying for y e a r s, he’s done lots of procedures, work experience in Africa for a month and just lately been doing 3 months experience at a prison !! and now guess what ??

daddy nurse
Yep he’s only gone and done it …my daddy is now a fully qualified nurse and in a couple of months mummy will qualify too

He tells me if there is something I really, really want to do when I grow up and that if I work hard I can do it ~ isn’t that cool

Fox 2 months old
I’m listening honestly daddy, but come on, how can I take you seriously when you talk to me in that babyish high-pitched voice, even if it does make me giggle

That is my first guest post over

All my love

Fox

 

Where Have I Been? … Well

In my wisdom rather than coughing up a lung each month for an expensive internet charges I thought I’d change providers …. BIG MISTAKE as you may or may not know I live in ‘The Tangled Backwoods’ ~  it transpires not all internet providers are equal, the new provider had a download speed something akin to the light a penny candle gives off in a hurricane

slow internet
Let’s just say it’s a good job Beloved and have been married for 72 million years ~ he already knows I have the patience of a 2yr old in a sweet shop

Anyhoo back to the old provider it is …. I’m currently booked in for surgery to remove a kidney for this months charges,

What was I going to tell you ? oh yes a few weeks back Beloved & I took Moo to Woodhall Spa’s 1940’s festival ~ I love it we get to travel hold up all the traffic in Millicent Morris while we pootle along at 35mph (45mph downhill LOL) while we are dressed in our finest 1940’s gear.

We discussed with Moo the importance of good manners and decorum while out & about and how discipline had changed over the years …. I don’t think he believed us UNTIL

Moo 2018
It was demonstrated just how a policeman would take an unruly child by the ear and give it a good darn tweak !!

No child was harmed during this photo shoot (although political correctness may have taken a bashing)  many a passer-by was heard to be chuckling and stories being told of how the very same thing had happened in their youth….. listening to some of tales I’m not  surprised some of them had their ear tweaked 🙂

 

 

Bragging Rights

Just a super short post as my broadband in pants – changing it next week so I can access the internet without pulling my hair out …. anyhoo look who has made into the final 3 in the Oscar Pet Food Company monthly Pet Idol competition ~ our very own D4

Otter 4 months
 Mrs P says all 3 pets are winners -Beloved was duty bound to vote for me though because I know how to get into the shoe cupboard and his new boots would have been history if he hadn’t 🙂

I’ll let you know how I got on at the end of the month when the votes are counted ….

 

 

 

 

Update On Baby ‘Fox’

Many thanks to all you who have offered kind thoughts, best wishes and prayers for ‘Fox’ guess what

coming home
HE’S COMING HOME !!

He has responded well to the antibiotics for suspected meningitis ~ his lumber puncture was tainted with blood and the decision was made rather than put him through the procedure again they would treat him as if he did indeed have the infection. While still a little jaundiced he’s feeding well and the best place for him now is at home with Mummy, Daddy & Big Brother Moo

Mummy and Fox
Happy days, now he can begin the new exciting adventure of family life xx
