St. Fagans

We spent a nice, sunny, Saturday afternoon in St. Fagans today. Despite Thomas and Hannah recovering from a bought of conjunctivitus (and I'll be amazed if I spelt that correctly!), and Andy recovering from being ill for the last couple of days, we had a really great, but tiring time.
Hannah was in a whacky mood, and was determined to walk around St. Fagans at the furthest possible distance behind us, while still being able to see us! She soon came closer once we'd stopped at 'Ye Olde Bakery' and bought some cookies!

Happy Birthday Mummy!

In what is an extraordinarily expensive month in the Hurley household, another birthday arrives in February. This time, it's Ruth's - who is pictured above trying out the candyfloss maker that Hannah and Thomas 'bought' her for her birthday. Ruth also had a new hairdryer as one of the her presents, so she needs to take extra care that she doesn't mix up the two or she is likely to end up with a very strange hair-do!

Happy Birthday Nan-Nan!

It's Nan-Nan's birthday today (Andy's Nan's birthday), so we all made room for more birthday cake, and went round to celebrate. While we were there, Hannah, Thomas and James got to know Taffy and Dewi. James was fearless - at one stage he was putting his hand inside Taffy's mouth. We thought that he'd try and be a lion tamer and put his head in next...

The above photo is the moment that Nanny walked into her surprise 60th Birthday Party. She wasn't expecting a thing, despite Grumpy having a huge grin on his face all morning. Thanks to everyone who came and made Ann's day special!

Happy 60th Birthday, Nanny!

We had a lovely meal at the Ty Mawr this evening to celebrate Andy's Mum's 60th Birthday. It's the last year that she'll be more than double Andy's age, so he's catching up fast!
