Since the beginning of term in Year 1, all Cassandra has really wanted, was to be awarded Star of the Week at school.
She's been in the running a few times, however this week her wish was granted when she won the award for "using her number practice at home to aid her school learning" (all the work we do at home does pay off)! and got to bring "Jack" the class mascot home for the week. I do believe that Jack and Cassie will be having some adventures this week..
After a good few years of teh kids (well, mainly Alex) asking if we could have a kitten, Lee and I finally gave in and went to a couple of Cats Protection re-homing days.
We weren't lucky enough to find our little addition, but after a few phone calls to Basildon branch, we ventured over to Romford the other weekend to see a fosterer.
She had about 8 kittens we could choose from and whilst we were originally only going for one cat - namely a little boy called Alfie, the family decision was made to go for the sisters - Adele and Luli.
Re-named Toys and Elsa (wonder who named that one - not) they are darling little things..
Although very mischievous, these little girls have settled in very well and are very playful. The kids have on the whole been very good with them too.
Well Alexander is trying his hand at a different sport, this time golf! Courtesy of John who got hold of a set of golf clubs for him, Alex, Lee and John went for their first session at the driving range at the beginning of November...
I'm married to a wonderful guy called Lee and we have two gorgeous boys - Alexander & Nicholas and a beautiful daughter Cassandra. I run my own secretarial business, I'm currently taking an OU Criminology and Psychological Studies degree and I'm also a very proud Beaver Scouts Assistant Leader. I like to keep busy and one of my favourite hobbies is scrapbooking..
