On friday night we went to the annual guy fawkes day celebration. It is so much fun; there are bouncy castles, food stalls, live music and, at the end of the night, a massive fireworks display. It was the first time we had been as a family and the kids had an absolute blast.
First we took Milly for a ride in the helicopter (one of the perks of Dion working for a local helicopter company that just so happens to be owned by his Aunt & Uncle).

My kids weren't too keen on the camera. Cheeky wee monkeys!
The fireworks at the end of the night were so much fun! It was the first time Tommy had seen fireworks and he loved it.
On saturday it was one of Dion's friend's 30th birthday. The party started at about 4 in the afternoon and, while I was in bed at a somewhat respectable hour, Dion made it to bed at 6.30 am!! We went to pick up the kids from my parent's house that afternoon and when we drove past on our way home we saw some of the people still partying!
If that wasn't exhausting enough; we had to get up early the next morning to get the kids ready to go and spend the day with their other grandparents while Dion took me down to Dunedin hospital for my appointment to discuss the removal of the face lump.
We rushed around like headless chickens and managed to make it to the hospital just on time. The doctors, of course, were running behind schedule and I wasn't seen for an hour and 20 minutes. The appointment was short and sweet; the doctor felt my face up a little, explained what the game plan was and put me on the waiting list.
So, I will be having my face cut open sometime in the next six months and right now I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping I don't look like Nelly on my wedding day!!
