“Just Because” Flowers

Just because flowers

Just because flowers

I don’t get flowers from Owen very often, which means that when I do they are all the more special.  I came home from work this week to a beautiful arrangement in a beautiful crystal vase with a note that said “Just Because”!  What a lucky girl I am.

Summer Fair at BISS

What a glorious weekend of weather – hot, blue skies and plenty of sunshine!  It was the annual fundraiser at BISS on Saturday – all proceeds benefit a local orphanage.  It was very well set up with lots of activities for the kids to do, lots of stalls for the adults to buy things and entertainment from a local group and school kids all afternoon.  I was on duty for 1 hour, manning the coconut shy.  Meanwhile, Owen took Isabelle and Oliver to the obstacle course and all the places to win stamps to cash in for prizes!  They had fun on a surf machine and the water slides – it was nice to cool down after being in the heat all day.

The kids School!

It was an afternoon filled with fun and we came home with bags full of candy, toys and information on lots of local providers.  We have bought a barbeque that will be delivered on Monday, and I have put an order in for a Norwegian raincoat (I am going to need that for the rainy season here!!)  Tesco were promoting their “Finest” wine and we will be placing an order with them too!  Judging by the number of people at the school, I think it will be a very healthy donation to the local orphanage.
