NY and Happy

I haven't heard much from Carly all week. The children have arrived and I know it must be hetic. However, this e-mail arrived last night: (not changing how it was written)

hey mummy,
finally got the computer whilst the kids are in a swimming lesson! Thank
you for the letter it made me smile. its nice to get mail coz the kids get
it too!
we had to make up a rap last night about bullying with our kids...they are
so cute when they do it and we are filming it today!

no chance to put pictures up its always so busy here and everyone is so
exhausted by the end of the night! its mad!

having the most amazing time. there is only one bratty child in my bunk who
cries whenever she doesnt get her own way and one who is gorgeous...her
dad owns one of the biggest basketball teams in america!

had ice cream sundaes just before the kids went to bed last nite....which
wasnt the greatest of ideas because the kids were so hyper after and
pretending to be zombies. I am also fed up of high school musical soundtrack
and the hannahg montana soundtrack. thats all my kids listen too!
if poss can you get the memory card out my other camera and send it to me
because im worried i dont have enough space!
and im upset coz i didnt bring enough dresys clothes! please can you send me

Call from Carly

Carly just managed to call from Monroe. She had bought a phone card and explained how hard it is to go on the computer and to tell Grandma and Grandpa this. She also wanted to tell everyone she loved them and is having fun although it is very hot. She was also quite excited that she had been taken to town in a yellow school bus!

Saturday Shopping

Yesterday I went on my usual shopping trip to Loughton. I went on my usual tour of the shops, Superdrug, WH Smiths and even treated myself to a few items of clothing and a pair of shoes in M and Co. However before I got home I had also purchased a Honda Jazz DSI 5 Door Hatchback in Black! As I was walking by Brown’s Honda dealer in Loughton, I saw Laurence who called me in to show me a second hand car that had only arrived on the premises yesterday. We both thought it was perfect and that was that! So I look forward to taking delivery of this beauty in about 2 weeks. I have been without a car for nearly 3 years! (Yes I have moaned about it a lot). So when it arrives I shall post it’s photo on this page.

News from Carly

Carly was only home from uni for a week before she departed off to USA for Camp America. She will be gone until September and we hope she has a fabulous time. She is staying in New York state at a camp called Camp Monroe.
I received a brief e-mail today, the fact that it is brief must mean she is having fun. It reads as follows:

I have arrived safely and settled into my cabin its so pretty here...the
journey was interesting. the air hostesses wore saris and we had
curry...cant rite too much but il get in contact soon. love u

The above refers to the fact that she flew Air India!
