Another year passes, as Rosie celebrates her 7th birthday AND her last day at Leamington Hastings School.
Wearing the red uniform for the last time, she opened a few presents before heading off for the bus.
In the evening, we had a lovely Chinese meal; where during the hors d'œuvre, the loose front tooth, that had been wobbling for days, finally came away.... and disappeared!! It couldn't be found on the floor, so who knows, it may have been swallowed.
Daddy & the Three Terrors head off afar to deepest Napton for an evening under canvas with the Happy Campers of Birdingbury. This was a Dad & Kids only event, and as a result, required childcare methods that would have made Maria Montessori proud.
A diet of salty crisps, fluorescent sweets, brightly coloured pop, sugary marshmallows and greasy fish & chips kept energy levels up. Fathering such a crowd was thirsty work too, and we are greatly indebted to the founding fathers of Diagio, InBev, Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma & vintners worldwide for sustaining us into the early hours.
