If you want to be a big cop in a small town ....

We had another lovely holiday at Coombe Mill Farm in Cornwall (where I found out I was pregnant again!)


Dotty the pig - also expecting




And despite having a bad back and being a little bit pregnant, we got a sneak peak at the Olympic stadium when I became one of the first to try out the track (Mo learnt it all from me, ahem)






April - We had a great day out at one of my former workplaces - Legoland (they didn't let me operate the rides again though)
This ride may not have been intended for people F's size!





May - Proof that there was some good weather - just in time for E to try out her new play house




Our first glimpse of Smidge2
