One week after Bethany's birthday and we're celebrating again. Joss turned 15 today. They chose similar birthday dinners; Bethany had lasagne and lamington cake , Joss had rigatoni al forno (same ingredients as lasagne) and chocolate ripple cake, which was a million times easier to make than the lamington 10!
They both had piercings for their birthday, the five year age difference meant a trip to a much dodgier venue, a very scary looking piercer and one little hole in her nose that was twice as expensive as two in Bethany's ears.
Today was also the first day back at school for Joss and Tobes, so we woke the kids up early , which was a rude shock after holidays and much late night watching of Le Tour, for pressies in our bed. Joss' good friend Carina came before school and gave her lots of presents and she was made a fuss of at school. She's a lovely girl and we are very proud of her.
The holidays are over for Joss and Tobes, but Bethany has this week off as well. We had our first day at home together today and I watched Frozen for the first time. It was cold and rainy outside, so the perfect day to stay in your PJs. The weekend was PJ weather, too, but we did soccer in the rain and I left for markets in an old hall when it was minute two. A week in the house with Bethany is just what I need.
