life i think has got in the way these past 12 months.
the feeling that i was just saying the same thing over and over, or there were things happening that i didn't know how to share. i haven't been absent though, reading "friends" blogs and discovering new ones has restored my interest, although now i don't know where to start. i guess this is a good as place as any and i really truly want to keep this as a record of our lives. so here goes.....
I'm back, with lots of steps backwards to fill in the 10 month gap !!!

festival weekend

on the sunday morning of the festival there is a kids market.
a few weeks ago Archie came up with the idea of making felt key rings to sell.
\this inspired Hugo to think of rocks.
so the two boys for the last few weeks have been busily creating per rocks and felt monster key rings to sell.
it was a great morning watching the boys set up, answer customers questions and negotiate money.
i think they enjoyed the experience

BMX #2

just as keen and not quite so hot as the first meet they went to.
both had falls this time, Hugo pushing himself to the edge and coming 2nd overall in his races despite not finishing one due to injury, and arch.... well he also has the competitive spirit and he gave his all.
