An Exhausting Weekend

An Exhausting Weekend

We got up at quarter past 4 on Saturday morning and drove to Portsmouth to see my brother and his family to celebrate his son's Noah's first birthday.
They have a lovely apartment right by the docks and with the view of the sea and the weather stunning, we could of been anywhere in the world! 
We had a lovely time outside enjoying picnics and games of french cricket. We also paddle on the smooth stoney beach and spent hours wondering along the coastline to parks and Ice cream venders.
Watched as the numerous ferries glide by so close it felt like you could touch them. And enjoyed a Sunday mass in Portsmouth Cathedral followed by an all you can eat pastry fest by the docks.
Whilst we were there we also went into the historic dockyard where we could see a battle ship being loaded and strolled around HMS Victory.

Now back home it feels that we have been away for a week. The children are exhausted and Raph has been asleep since half ten! Very unlike him!! I have sorted the bags and have now got the washing on to get out on the line. Its like we were never away! 
The whole weekend really made us appreciate how lucky we hare in having such a big family that makes an event of everything. Celebrations all round!
