After being away for a couple of weeks, it was a pleasure to visit Isabella for a little while on Monday morning.
She seemed pleased to see us.
Isabella has found a new hat to supersede her crown, which had been discarded nearby.
Daddy's recent birthday had generated a cake (thank you Grandma Wendy) that Isabella helped us to finish.
The Didsbury train set is now quite extensive, and has a new car circuit bought with Great Grandma Dot's Christmas money. Isabella loves it.
Now for Jacob and Jessica. While we were away, they took part in a running event in Manchester, both completing the 2km course at a good pace and raising funds for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, who looked after their mum for an uncomfortable six weeks last year. Well done you two.
