An Evening at the theatre

First evening off in a while for Lisa as I took her to see the RSC in London performing A Midsommer Nights Dream at the Novello theatre. (formally the Strand Theatre).  We went with some of my friends from work and their partners.  It was a really good evening.  Grandma and Granddad B kindly agreed to babysit all 4 children and arrived about 2.30pm which meant that Lisa and I could zip off to Winchester to catch the train into London.  It was a pleasant journey in which gave us both time to sort out things we needed to do for Sunday, Lisa completed her Lesson and I sorted out my talk.  When we got to Waterloo we met up with the others and went off to Theatre themed restaurant and then headed off to the theatre for the performance.  It was an excellent performance as one would expect from the RSC and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.  We got back just after midnight and found Heather cuddled up to Grandma B totally relaxed, all 4 children had been really good all evening so made Lisa feel really good.  A really good night out.

Mother & Daughter camp, Warwick Chapel Dedication

Tuesday 29th June 2004
Daddy is getting slack at writing our diary for us, so we have told him off and so he now has to catch up. 
On Friday 18th & Saturday 19th June Mummy, Elizabeth & Emily went to mother & daughter camp.  If you have read May’s diary you might have seen some of the pictures already in the Camping section along with the father & son camp pictures.  This was a lot of fun.  The girls all went down to Lyndhurst in the new forest and set up their camp, well Daddy and Scott did!  It was the Siswick huge tent as Jess Siswick went along with the girls and her mum wasn’t very well. Then they all settled into their evening there.  During the night, Emily wouldn’t go to sleep so at 2am Mummy brought her back home and really shocked Daddy in the night.  He was very surprised to see Mummy wander in, in the middle of the night!!!
In the morning Daddy & Scotty took Emily back to the camp and then headed back home to do their gardening chores!!!
Last Saturday was the ward treasure hunt in Romsey.  This had been a year in the planning as people forgot to turn up to it last year.  This year though the weather was a lot different.  It was very wet and damp this year but it didn’t stop us all having some fun.  Mummy divided all the people into teams and sent them off with clues to go to the next stage of the treasure hunt.  They had to go to the park and then into Romsey.  In the middle of Romsey Daddy made them all sing and dance the Hokey Cokey – it was very very funny.  The people of Romsey must think the members of the church are mad.  They are right!!
And then on Sunday after normal church we all went to Warwick for the dedication of their new Church building.  The Stake President came to visit and said a special prayer dedicating the building.  It was very good.  We got to see Grandma C who had come all the way down from Scotland to be at the dedication. 

Callings & Parties

Sunday 1st February 2004

Today has been a “busy day Daddy” as Elizabeth would say, but an exciting one.  Lisa was called and set apart as the Relief Society President so she is going to be very busy.  Also all the family came around for a birthday party for Emily who is 1 year old tomorrow.   Already she is one!!!!  Grandma C, Grandma and Granddad B, Uncle David, Uncle Gary and Aunty Lindsay all came round.  Aunty Kirsty didn’t want to come up.  We all had a lovely time; Emily enjoyed opening her presents with a little help from the other two.  We had some party food and the children played with their toys and entertained everyone, they were very good all day.  Emily did try and blow out her candle using her finger but Scott blew it out before she did any real harm!!!! We even spoke to Uncle Christopher in Cyprus.  

Let it snow let it snow let it snow

Thursday 29th January 2004
In the morning Mummy had to get them dressed quickly so they could play in the snow before it all melted.  Elizabeth fitted into the Age 1 snow suit that we bought for Scott when we were in America 3 years ago.  (Check his page). Although she grumbled that it wasn’t her colour i.e. Pink, I was comforted to know that she was warm. 
After playing in the snow Scott went to Chatterbox and Elizabeth and Emily went to toddler group.  My first aid course was cancelled so she couldn’t go to that so we all went to toddler group.
When all the children had gone to bed, a few YSA girls came over for DVD and pizza.  We all enjoyed giving each other pedicures and chatting away.  We sent Mark up to his bedroom to surf on the internet!!!!
