Such a lot happening right now....

Well, we got back from Paris and what a fab time we had - lovely weather for the most part, showed the kids all the sights and they loved it. Even better was the site on the Seine at Maisons Laffite which was like going back to the countryside in the evening, the kids had space and met up with other kids, we could cook for ourselves and sit on the deck with a glass of wine and relax - so much better than a hotel for our family but with all the beauties of Paris about 25 minutes away on the RER. A total success.

Then we had lovely friends up from Cornwall for the weekend and revelled in the wonderful sunshine once more, making the most of the long distance views from Epsom Downs and taking the chance to look round Hampton Court, something we only seem to do with visitors!!
Now I'm frantically packing for Romania. I've been stuck with needles, amassed first aid kit, worn in my steel toe capped boots and borrowed my guide book for Budapest from the library for our day's sightseeign. I still need currency, I'm hoping to customise my hard hat, I have a load of cooking to do for the family and probably a million other things to do too. I'm terrified, and excited to be going, sad to leave the family for a week, but hoping to do something rewarding and to make a difference and really get stuck in to the project.
