I haven’t looked after children for a long while. Sam and I are currently in the thick of life with three small and lively boys, and believe me, it’s full on from early morning until late at night. We love them to bits, but we’re knackered!

I’m going to have to delete all the hundreds of emails I’ve received and start again when I get home, as I really don’t have enough time to read them all and leave comments. In fact, three boys do not leave much time for anything else. We’re out all day visiting attractions on the Island, and then cooking dinner or organising barbeques to feed them all. It’s great fun, but hey, I can’t do everything.

We’ll be out being grandparents at Alum Bay/The Needles theme park tomorrow, and then Osborne House the day after. Life is great, but hectic.

See you after September 1st… x
