Hope youâre having a good week. Ben and I took Aoife to the Hilton London Syon Park hotel this weekend, which was really nice because itâs very rare that we both get a whole weekend off.Â We went swimming and then to the spa, where I had a lovely âlava shellâ massage. Itâs kind of like a hot stone massage, but instead of stones, itâs shells which are sourced from the Philippines.
It was great for me because I had loads of knots in my back from diving, so it was completely relaxing!Â Â We also took Aoife to the swimming pool which she absolutely loved, because she loves being in the water. Iâm really keen to get her swimming.
We met up with some friends for dinner and played giant Jenga, which Aoife loved because she kept trying to pull all the pieces down. I think she was excited because it was past her bedtime, but we let her off because it was nice to spend some time together.
Iâve got to be careful about what I say in front of Aoife as sheâs started repeating everything she hears. I accidentally swore the other day and she copied me, so I said, âAoife, Iâll be saying âoh shootâ instead now!â Itâs funny because when youâre young you think you have to be careful in front of your parents, and then you become a parent and you have to be careful in front of the children! Especially because children are like sponges â they pick up everything that you say! Itâs also quite exciting though, because every day sheâs learning more and more vocabulary.
Ben had some exciting news this week as heâs been signed on to NEXT management. Heâs done shoots before for magazines, so heâs got some experience.
