Word of the Week: Presence

This week we had the pleasure of seeing one of our family members from France (Hubby’s Father). He came over for the week and stayed with different family members. Tuesday night saw us play host and my hubby talked late into the night with him in French.

Our Daughters and their Grandparents


This week has also seen (or rather heard) builders working on the property next door to us. They are getting it ready for the new tenants to move into. A tip appeared yesterday and the bath went into that. There’s been drilling, sawing and more going on. I'm surprised that the babies have been able to sleep through most of it. The previous tenant was an elderly disabled lady who passed away around Christmas.

How has your week been?

  1. How lovely to have a visit from your father-in-law. Sounds like a lot of work happening next door - it's amazing what little ones can sleep through sometimes though! #WotW

    1. It's rare so we were keen to do an activity he would enjoy and that the eldest would love too. My girls have always been good sleepers but to the extent I had to wake them for feeds.

    1. Thank you. I've decided that I can cope as long as they don't come through the wall.

  5. A film visit must have been lovely but what a shame about the noise, even more so due to the reason behind it. Great choice of word though, it makes you think. Thanks for joining the #weekendblogshare

  7. How lovely to catch up with family. We had so much renovation going on in the house when the children were babies, that I thought I'd need to record it and play it back when it was all over, otherwise they would never be able to sleep.#wotw

  9. Hi Helena, how lovely that your husband got to see his Dad and your children their Grandad. You are lucky that the children can sleep through the noise of the workmen, hope they finish their job soon.
