It's been a lovely week in spite of lots of rain and the return of coughs and colds :)
We have 10 days school hols here and, amongst other things have....

been to the movies ("Despicable Me" - 7/10)
spent the day with my oldest friends and our 8 children 
went to a Halloween party and ate a lot of orange food
had our favourite uncle over to stay and shrieked a lot (their uncle/my brother!)
made our most successful banana cake ever (we are easily pleased!)
bought new shoes
bought new books & discovered "Swallows and Amazons" by Arthur Ransome
(it is a lovely thing when your child reads and loves something that you loved as a child too)
finally got a Buzz Lightyear costume

brushed up on our French for our trip to Paris this week-end!!!!

Yes, I am off to Paris again!
This time with my husband and our children, leaving London on the early Eurostar train on Saturday morning and arriving back late Monday night....very exciting!!
The journey door-to-door takes a little under 4 hours which is quite amazing - my son cannot wait to get on the high-speed train and go in the tunnel under the English Channel.
My husband is looking forward to the restaurants.
And my daughter is looking forward to the Eiffel Tower, seeing the pretty shops, her morning pain au raisin and a trip to Laduree. Or is that me?! She is her mother's daughter that's for sure :)

Next week it is Giveaway Week and I will have a wonderful giveaway for one lucky follower each day!!

Happy Week-end!!

Happy Halloween!!

A few weeks ago my very excited children and I attended a Halloween evening at the fabulous One Aldwych hotel to test out the fantastic new fancy dress range from Clothing at Tesco.

Yummy themed food, pumpkin-carving, face painting, the UK premiere of  "Monsters-vs-Aliens, Mutant Pumpkins From- Outer Space" and, best of all, really great costumes to choose son was a skeleton and my daughter was a pirate witch.
There were rails of very creative costumes - dresses with cobweb sleeves, lots of purple, black and orange, great masks, lots of original and interesting details...Halloween heaven!

My great friend E loves a fancy dress event and hosts a Halloween party every year.....she knows a good  costume when she sees it and on my recommendation headed straight for Tesco and bought her 2010 costume!

All costumes available from Tesco in-store and online (and they are now half-price!)

We headed home having had a lot of fun and the children were given huge goodie bags plus their fab costumes - perfect!!

We are in fact away this week-end but are going to a Halloween party this evening....the costumes are ready and the face painting has already begun :)

Thank you so much to Tarryn and all her colleagues for such wonderful hospitality - you all looked amazing in your costumes too!
