Fruit Kebab Making Soggy Wedding Belle!

So, what do you do with a 5 year old girl when it's been raining none stop for days and she's coloured in every colouring book known to man?! Well, yesterday, we happened to find our wedding video and Emily asked if she could try my dress on. Oh, every mother's dream, having her little girl dress up in her wedding dress! So, we dusted it off (just how long has it been under the bed, Kim and Aggie would have had a fit at all the dust!) and very carefully put it on her! Bless, what an angelic little bride she made! Didn't quite fit yet which is just as well as she needs a few eons to decide which of the 5 boyfriends she's going to marry!!

Today was supposed to be Emily's sports day but, as they were planning egg & spoon races and not rowing, it was cancelled! So, instead, they taught the kids how to make fruit kebabs (ok, they dipped them in chocolate, but Jamie Oliver's half got through!). So, when she got home, she decided that she wanted to make us all some. So, we got fruit kebabs and her and Rob got apple and cheese too. Quite the little Nigella!!

So, as we speak, the middle of Leeds is shut off as are the motorways. So, needless to say, it took Rob forever to get home. Fortunately we live on a hill so we're fine here, but there's a lot of evacuations etc nearer the city. The rain's stopped now so hopefully we'll get a respite before the next deluge! And just on the point of the wet weather, obviously today has been a one off but I am correct in thinking that we do get rain in summer don't we? So why don't shops sell coats in Summer?! I trailed poor Xander round the White Rose this afternoon trying to find something with a hood on that was vaguely waterproof but most of the shops didn't have anything that looked like a coat! Thank god for Debenhams (% 20% off!!). OK, rant over!
