Girls just wanna have fun...

.... but they're a bit too tired at the moment to get off the sofa.

The boys are away so Mimi and I are catching up on a bit of girl time. Had a spot of lunch at mums, then went to the gym for a swim in the outdoor pool - rather nice if you kept your shoulders under - and stopped for refreshments in the cafe.

We'll be tucking into a homemade curry later and a bit of tv watching.

lovely jubbly holiday in Majorca

Oh, we had such a wonderful holiday in beautiful Puerto Pollensa. This time we did very little, just lazed around the pool for most of the day. The kids had a ball - snorkelling, water aerobics, jumping on lilos (and chicken chucking(!)) - and Dr Green and I just soaked up some rays. Now have to wean Dr Green off of crosswords and soduko.

Read a fab book that was recommend by a friend - Dear Fatty (Dawn French's autobiography) - which was easy to dip in and out of, very funny in a belly laughing kind of way but awfully sad in places.

Great entertainment in the evening - a big slap of cheesey dance routines, and even cheesier shows. In particular, a rather stroppy Rod Stewart soundalikee called Rud!! Stewart, a reptile show (Jake had a huge yellow python crawling around his neck, yuck) and an Iranian magician (who Mimi ably assisted).

The photo is of the kids eating their obligatory after dinner Ben and Jerry's ice creams on the beach. We had some pretty tasty meals out in particularly beautiful settings. We just love Maxims and La Piazza on the market square.

Thank you very much Rachel The Sister In Law for house/chook sitting and for having to suffer the freakish gang of 4 vs wood pigeon incident!
