On Friday morning we were piled into the car ready for the trip down to Folkestone to visit our relatives in the south. We were all very well behaved in the car on the way down.
The highlight of the trip was the game of eye spy we had when Mummy (Alli) said I spy with my little eye something beginning with F â?? now bearing in mind that we were on the M1 at the time, Mummy (Alli) & Daddy (Tim) were reduced to tears when Daniel responded with Fish!!!
We arrived at Grandadâ??s new house in Dover at about 2pm and proceeded to trash the living room as we needed to let off steam after being in a car for 4 hours â?? we are not sure that Grandad knew what he had let himself in for.
After settling in and having a little play we made our way to Folkestone to have our dinner at Grandma and Grandadâ??s (we have a very confusing family). We played with Pru, Auntie Alexâ??s dog, and the cars before we ate our dinner of delicious homemade spaghetti bolognaise. After a couple of hours we went back to Grandadâ??s and went to bed.
Apparently Mummy (Alli) and Daddy (Tim) stayed up and had a few drinks, Daddy (Tim) bought Mummy (Alli) a bottle of Champagne as she had just found out that she had got a new job and they wanted to celebrate.
Mummy (Alli) must have celebrated a little bit too much as she stayed in bed on Saturday with a hangover, whilst we went out to the shops in the morning with Grandad and Daddy (Tim) to choose our Christmas presents from Grandad. After lunch Grandad, Daddy (Tim) and Auntie Alex took us up to the cliffs so that we could fly our kites â?? we had a great time, but had to be careful not to fall over the edge as we didnâ??t want to go swimming.
When we came home at 4pm Mummy (Alli) was out of bed, so we told her about our day and then played with our new toys.
The house then filled up as Auntie Alex, Uncle Jerry, Auntie Sarah, Uncle Chris and Cameron all came round as we were all going out for a meal at a posh restaurant! We were all very well behaved in the restaurant including Uncle Jerry!
After the restaurant we went back to Grandadâ??s and after a little bit more playing we went to bed and fell asleep straight away as we were so exhausted!
On Sunday morning we managed to lie in bed until 8am and then we got up and helped Mummy (Alli) clear up the lounge from the day before.
After breakfast we went back to see Grandma and Grandad and had some lunch there before making our way back home.
We had a great time and canâ??t wait to go back and see everyone.
