Summer Sun, Boobs and McDonald's

Well the sun has finally shone, and there truly is no better place to be than in England in the summertime. (So I put the kiss of death on the sunshine for saying that...! Sorry I wrote this yesterday.)

I am not so sure I like the long summer nights as my kids have no idea of the time of day, and are not going to bed until 10pm. They are so happy here, spending all their time outside playing. Check out the picture a family picture with them climbing a tree.

It will be nice once they get to meet some new friends, I am thankful that they are only a year apart as they have each other to play with or kill each other depending on the time of day.

On the School front, thankfully we have got that all sorted, St Mary’s CE Primary Wavendon has come to my rescue, it looks a great school, small only 99 children from Reception to Year 6. The Head Teacher seems really lovely, so hopefully the girls will be very happy in their new school from September.. but not as happy as their Mother..!!!

I think the biggest thing the girls are in love with at the moment is Mcdonald’s, Mia can’t get over the fact they get given a toy every time they go there. Amelie thinks the food is the best and that Nanny should work there as she can learn how to make
dinner really quick..! They would eat dinner there every-day if they could.

I must admit that the Mcdonald’s we have by us is a not the Mcdonald’s I was used to, there are iPads for the kids to play on, it is modern, clean and the staff seem to have a sense of pride, and the grilled chicken wrap with a salad is not that bad.!!

We are staying with my parents at the moment and my Dad buys about 4 different papers which range from The Telegraph to The Sun and a Racing Post thrown it for good measure. Amelie has discovered The Sun and it’s “Page 3” she can’t get over the
fact that people show their boobs, and has even asked if I am going to do that (oh for the love of god they don’t want to see my boobs..!)

Now every day she is trying to hunt down the paper. We told her that we don’t buy that paper any more, but today she comings running  in squealing “I found the boobie paper”.. what to do..!!

I am catching up with old friends, had a lovely chat with John who has been there for me through-out my life and career, always helping me, even now I know he is getting his head around the bag market ready to give me some fab advise and a guiding hand.

Mia Tui is coming together, I am sending out bags to some “Mummy Bloggers” and we have had some good news from two “baby magazines/websites” that will review the bags and do some Facebook competitions.

I am booked into The Baby Show Exhibitions and The Spirit of Christmas at Blue Water, together with some Trade Shows to hopefully sell to some retailers who would like to stock my bags in their shops.. Please pretty please..!

Hopefully once all the bags are in the UK in a couple of weeks, and people have read how fantastic the bags are in a few magazines we can start to sell some bags..

    So glad to hear that you guys are all settling well. I’m with you I loved the whole sun setting at 6pm every day thing – bedtimes are harsh in the summer. You are all looking fab – just had dinner with Kelly and the kids and she is headed home tomorrow. Love you.

    Love my Mia Tui bag & I’ve only had it 24hrs!

    Sounds like you’re settling down into a momentum. The girls must love the Summer season, it’s nice to enjoy the balmy evenings. Brilliant news about the school, less so about The Sun although that is very funny.
