A brief round up

Joshua is nervously approaching his Show on Saturday, with just the tech rehearsal on Thursday before the performance. He's also finished the website for his Bronze Arts Award "My Hero" project which you can view here.

Samuel is in turn working on his next venture, which is his own gluten free hand made shortbread service! He's designing a website and some leaflets and wants to then leaflet the local area. He's been doing a lot of research and costing it all out, including deciding the best packaging to use.

William seems to be doing increasingly well despite not being able to read properly still. He's even managed to create a movie, drawn in Paint and put together in Movie Maker! As soon as I've got it off of his laptop I will share it.

Jonathan is continuing to shine. As an example, view his latest "performance" on Youtube!

He's also been introduced to the potty, aged 2 1/2, and managed this evening to use it for the first time. He recognises lots of letters, all his numbers up to 10, can count up to 20 in English and 10 in Spanish and is generally scaring the living daylights out of us!

Finally he's allowed someone else other than me to put him to bed. All last week Roarke did it, and then on Friday we were out and my Mum put him to bed.

Roarke and I have been busy, but there have been some highlights. We reviewed a restaurant in Sevenoaks which turned out to be one of the best meals I've had in a very long time. Then, this week, we attended the Gala Reopening Dinner for Limoncello Restaurant in Sidcup. It was a lovely evening (we hosted the Deputy Mayor at our table), including opera by Aspects of Opera, and their new chef proved he was more than up to the task of a four course banquet for around 80 guests. If you live near Sidcup, please go and visit. This weekend they have an Italian Market at the restaurant and you can sign up here to get a voucher for a free cappuccino when you buy a cornetto pastry (yes, it's an Italian pastry - like a croissant - and NOT an ice cream!)

Roarke has actually been quite unwell and is awaiting an appointment with the rheumatologist to try and get to the bottom of it. In the meantime, we're picking back up our Herbalife business and thankfully the nutrition products are working their usual magic and his health is picking back up.

Christmas is a busy time for our church, especially for our community arm, the Hope Foundation. With a Christmas meal for the elderly of the borough, and a Christmas Hamper give away to those in need in the area, it is a very busy time. If you live in the BR, CR, DA or ME postcodes and have any white goods - especially coookers - that are in good condition and full working order, PLEASE contact me as we have many families in dire need who would be very grateful for them. I can collect from any of those areas.
