We have been very busy of late. There has been much socialisation taking place. Willow's friend William celebrated his 1st birthday which was a gorgeous day. We went away to Mike and Michelle's for the weekend (near Casabermeja)where they hosted a bunch of people (we ate a farmyard over 2 days). It was incredible at their little cortijo, it's the most amazing landscape and we never fail to come away in love with it.... and Tanc never fails to come away with a severe hangover! We had Jo and Jayne over for a BBQ and they brought all the information they collected on their trip to the Italian Lakes so we can plan our trip (we leave 24 June for a week)..... very excited about that!

Willow is handling it all well, she's loving spending time with the other babies at Mother's group on Mondays and at swimming on Fridays.

Friday Afternoon Hijinks....

Willow's New Friend Tiara...

Tiara invited Willow to her house after playgroup...

She wants to join in now when we play tennis...

This week Marbella Mummy had her first playgroup lunch at her house. There were only 4 of us but even that was hard to get organised with an attachment to my legs everywhere I went (Willow is a little clingy at the moment!). It was a lovely afternoon and the kids all had a great time (as did the mums). I cooked fish on the BBQ and we had a glass of pink champagne.

We also had our first babysitter for Willow. We went to the White Party at Nikki Beach and had a ball. What a crazy party. We were home soon after 1am (didn't want to push our luck with Meiko, Tanc's assistant who was kindly babsitting for us).
