Long lost family reunion


Mummy and daddy had a night out on Friday, they went to see the Black Keys at Alexandra Palace so I was left with my Uncle Luke and his friend Reese.  I was such a good girl, mummy had fed me and I was ready for bed by the time they left for their gig.  Uncle Luke gave me my bottle and I went to sleep and didn’t wake till morning.  I think they must have had the easiest babysitting job ever!

On Saturday night there was more Birthday celebrations but this time it wasn’t about me anymore. We went out to Morden to Lucille and Henry’s place, their parents were hosting two parties, an earlier one for Henry’s 3rd Birthday and a later – adults only one for Henry’s daddy; Jason. There was an Olympic theme to the party so daddy dressed up as a cyclist and mummy was all dressed up to compete in an equestrian event.  As I also own a lovely pair of leggings that look like rjodhpurs I joined mummy in the equestrian theme.  I think we looked fantastic.  Jo organised a nanny for the night so all the adults could party and have a few drinks whilst we were being taken care off.  I think mummy and daddy indulged a little too much as they were both looking a bit rough the next morning.

Sunday was a very special day.  My G Nan and G Dad are English, they were born and raised here and still have a lot of family living in the UK.  Unfortunately when they moved to Australia many years ago they lost contact with all of their family.  Daddy had been looking on Ancestry.com and was hoping to get back in contact with some of the Stanley’s and nan’s family in London.  Nan had been collecting all the family details, dates of birth, names etc for daddy and out of the blue she recieved a letter from the Red Cross.  Her brother Albert had been trying to find her for years and they had finally tracked Nan and Gdad down.  So Nan called up Albert and they reunited over the phone.  Nan was so excited she let us know Albert’s details and Daddy contacted him to arrange a time to meet up.  Daddy was really happy as he really wanted to meet more of his family.  Uncle Albert and his wife Brenda were going to come along to my birthday party but sadly the snow made it too difficult and so we organised the following Sunday.  We met at the same Pub as my party and had a really yummy lunch.  I was such a good girl and got lots of cuddles from Brenda and they bought me such a lovely outfit for my birthday (I am so spoilt!).  Daddy and Luke were really happy to finally meet Nan’s brother after all this time.  Unfortunately mummy didn’t feel well so she had to go home during lunch but Daddy, Luke and I really enjoyed ourselves and spent the afternoon catching up.  What an interesting and fun day! We are so lucky as uncle Albert invited us to one day visit them on their property in Sussex.  I heard they have cows and some cottages so it would be a really fun farming weekend. Silly mummy forget to get some photo’s before she went home so we promise to get lots when we meet up next.

The rest of the week has been fairly quiet other than a little free trial day at the Little Gym. Mummy took photos here, it was so much fun.  Lots of soft mats to crawl around on, we practised walking and climbing which I am very good at, we also played with some balls and popped some bubbles.

Stay tuned as we are off to visit Oma in Salzburg next week.  Mummy will hopefully find the time to blog everyday we are away.

Race you to the top! climbing up Mat hill

I love climbing through tunnels.
This little gym is tiring, might just take a nap on this ball.
