I'm still here

In case you thought I'd disappeared again, I haven't. Things have been pretty busy the last couple of days and then I couldn't find my camera cable.  I'm still here though and back in business :)
 On Friday I met up with Claire and Alice. I picked them up just before 9am and we headed to Starbucks for breakfast.  Alice loves the lemon and poppy seed muffins and the chocolate coins!  I hadn't seen them since Tuesday and it was lovely to see how happy Alice was to see me again.  I love that little girl so much!!
 We were trying for a photo of the two of us but, as you can see, my phone was far more important than a photo.
 After Starbucks we headed to Mary's for Claire to have her highlights topped up before Christmas and baby's arrival. Alice always enjoys going to Mary's because Mary has a little girl too and Alice gets to play with all her toys.  However, after a while I could tell Alice was tired and she was quite happy to come and sit on my lap for a cuddle. It didn't take too long before she was asleep. And yes, this was a self portrait because I want to capture these precious times with Alice.
On Saturday Claire and I went round to the flat to do a final clean and make sure everything was out of it before she had to meet the landlord and hand over the keys today.  Alice was spending the day with her Daddy (in case some of you haven't realised, Claire and Craig split up not long after Claire found out she was expecting the baby. And although this isn't what she had wanted, she is now a much happier person and is doing a wonderful job with Alice and I know she's going to be a great Mum to her two girls) so we were planning to just keep going until we'd finished.

We'd only been there about an hour when I got a call from Hugh to tell me he'd just been in an accident on his way to work and had hit a tree. I'm not going to go into details but am very thankful that he is alright and that he only suffered a cut to the head and a bruised hand. It could have been so much worse!

I hope your weekend has been a good one.
