A Great Weekend with Friends..

We have had a fantastic weekend with only one drama (not Mia this time!)…. Sharon, Phil, Daniel and Maisie came to visit from Wales.  They nearly didn’t come because Daniel had a bit of a cold but I decided that because Mia’s blood levels were fairly normal due to the week off her oral chemo it was worth the risk especially as Mia had been looking forward to their visit for the last 3 weeks.  They all arrived at 3pm on Saturday and the kids had a great time running round the house (including Mia… she is so much more mobile now), watching “You’ve been Framed” and painting Disney Princesses.




 Bedtime came round very quickly and after a little indecision (from the children) about who was sleeping with whom and in what room, Sharon and I eventually got them all to sleep in record time, Maisie and Daniel slept in Harvey’s room and Harvey and Mia were in Mia’s room (This would soon turn out to be a Godsend!).

Us adults promptly open the wine and enjoyed a curry, it was a really nice evening catching up, laughing and for Sharon and I almost crying!  We headed to bed at about midnight and no sooner had we settled then Maisie woke up being sick, she must have had a bug and was sick quite a few times in the night.  Needless to say Sharon and I slept very little and as soon as the children were up in the morning the Kite family were packed up and headed back to Wales so that Mia did not catch the bug.   Whirlwind Yes, but fantastic too!

We had already planned lunch at Pizza Express with Sam, James Henry and Bella so minus the Kite family we headed in to town and had a great meal with the Matthias family.

It is so good to do normal things with good friends and great that Mia was well and enjoyed it so much.
