Phew, what a week..

It's been a very busy week. My trip to Bangladesh was confirmed last Friday, and I'm flying to Dhaka on Saturday evening, and since then it's been non-stop at work preparing for this trip. I'm going for a week, and there's probably two weeks worth of work to do, so whilst I'll be staying in a nice 5* hotel (the Sonargaon) I don't think it'll be as relaxing as it could be.
It's Breast Cancer Awareness Day today, and the staff at the nursery are wearing pink, and encouraging the kids to join in. When we dropped Lara off this morning, the other four kids there weren't in pink (maybe we'll forgive the boys!), but Lara was wearing enough for everyone:

A walk in the woods

We met up with our friends Ed & Lizzie and their daughter Hannah today for a walk in the local woods. It was nice to be able to let Jackson off the lead and still keep him under control, he came back when called, even when we encountered other dogs. If only Mishka would watch and learn! We still keep him on the lead all the time, otherwise we'd spend most of the time on the walk chasing after him.
Lara and Hannah played nicely back at Ed & Lizzie's house, it was all too much for Hannah, who went for a nap while the grown ups had a spot of lunch. Lara couldn't decide if she wanted to eat Ed's lovely fish pie or play with Hannah's toys, but thanks to you guys for a lovely lunch!
I've put some photos in the "New Uploads" album to the left of the blog, seeing as I'd not updated this for a couple of months!
