Jo’s 40th

My sister celebrated her 40th at The Factory Cafe in March this year. OK, it’s three months later and I’m finally downloading the pics and putting them up on my blog.

It was such a good party and a celebration of her life so far with all her closest friends and family. I had one too many Patrons and paid the price the next day when Freya woke up at 3am and didn’t want to go back to sleep until 5am! All worth it though…

Freya at the Frédérics

Some pics from when Freya stayed with her aunt and uncle. Jo always sends me pics if we’re apart so I can see what she’s up to. I even get pics of her when she’s fast asleep! Just so I know all is well. I love the updates and it keeps me sane while we’re apart. Thanks for looking after our baby girl like she’s your own my sista.

Freya’s 1st birthday

We celebrated Freya’s first birthday on 18th February. We only wanted something small – direct family only. I’m so glad we did it this way too because Freya was actually so sick and wasn’t herself.

I got quite into decorating our place for her birthday though. This is what Pinterest does to people. You start obsessing over decorations! I could feel myself getting sucked in to the black hole I call Pinterest but then I stopped myself. It’s her FIRST birthday. She won’t have a clue. Save your energy for when she’s older. I’ve already created a ‘Kids – Party’ board on Pinterest so I’m ready for it.

I’ll upload some of the pics from my big camera tomorrow. These were quick snaps taken on my phone.

We’ve had a lot of visitors from the UK recently who met Freya for the first time. Although all these visits were far too brief for my liking, I know what it’s like when you get back here on holiday, after being away for so long. Your family want you and all of you. You have so many friends and family to see that by the end of your holiday, you need another holiday.

It was so good to see you all my friends – just wish we could have had more time together.

Sorry about the grainy pics – taken on my phone.
