Saints v Racing Metro

Guy and I enjoyed a chilly evening with the girls at the rugby watching Jamie start at 6 against a strong Racing side. The boys drew 9-9 after a tough 80 minutes of play.    

London at Christmas & Polpo

After Jamie’s game against Bath we headed up to London for the night. London at Christmas never disappoints. Shimmering lights glow at every shop window, Norwegian fir trees flank every door, carols are sung on every street, Christmas markets spring up on every square and mulled wine and mince pies line the counters in every shop. It’s a magical time and it’s hard to deny that London does it brilliantly….

Guy Fawke’s Night

It was a non-stop day on Saturday. We attended Jamie’s match against the Saracens at the opening of their new stand at Franklin’s Gardens. The boys lost sadly, but Guy had a lovely time gurgling with the players’ babies in the box, and watching Daddy on the field below.

With his crest and initials beautifully emblazoned on the surface, I.O.Shen didn’t disappoint – thank you Natalie, it will…

The old Jersey home

The following morning we hopped over to the old Jersey home – the home of our ancestors for over 200 years. When we sold the house, it was a sad day, but the changes the new owners have made are very impressive. It was strange going back, having not been there for so many years. The place I remember filled with antiques…

Our little Guy’s arrived!

Now we’re home and settling into a routine, it’s been a joy to pore over some of the photos taken in hospital when Guy was first born. My time at the Lindo Wing passed incredibly smoothly and I’m so grateful to all the people who tended to me during my stay. Guy George Selwyn Gibson was born two weeks early at the Lindo Wing, St…
