Aoife and her friend Koa are adorable together…

Hi everyone,

 
Hope you’re having a good week despite the horrible weather!

 

Ben and I met up with Kian and Jodi last weekend for a Sunday roast. Aoife and their son Koa are adorable together, they play together and are really good friends. They’re the cutest little things! Aoife is still very young so she hasn’t made many friends, but Koa is 3 months older and they get on so well. He told Jodi that he really likes Aoife and thinks she’s really pretty – it was so cute. When Aoife sees photos of him, she recognises him and points him out as her friend. It’s so sweet.

Her birthday is coming up in March, so I just bought her dress. I haven’t made any big plans as she’s still quite young, so I might make it a small party. I think next year she’ll be old enough to appreciate all the excitement, cake and presents a bit more.

 

I do want to try and get her picture on one of the children’s TV shows where they say happy birthday to kids. The picture pops up and they wish you a happy birthday and say your age, which is very exciting for both the child but also the parents I think. When I was 7, my Mum sent one in, and it was shown… but I missed it! The next day everyone was talking about it at school, and I was so disappointed that I hadn’t seen it.

 

She’s almost 2 now, and she understands a lot of what we say and what’s going on. It’s lovely, because she’s just so happy-go-lucky. I wouldn’t be able to be apart from her, I see her almost every day.

 

I think for her birthday I’ll be getting her some clothes and toys, but I’d love to get her a sing-a-long CD player for children as a birthday gift, so if you know any great ones, I’m open to suggestions!

 

Speak soon,

Vanessa’s birthday party summed her up perfectly

Hi everyone

Hope you’re having a great week. I’ve had so much on so it’s been a while since I’ve written my blog but I’ve got lots to tell you all.

Ben is back in the England team which is brilliant. He played in the England v Argentina match last weekend and he’ll be playing the All Blacks this weekend too.  I’m so happy to see him back at his best after the terrible injury lost him his place from the England team temporarily.

I went to Twickenham to support with my two oldest friends Catherine and Frances who had come over from Ireland to visit. I’ve known them since I was four years old so we’ve been through everything in our lives together. They don’t know me as Una from the Saturdays, they just know me as Una. I like to think I’ve stayed true to myself through the years and having them as friends has helped to keep me grounded. They still live where my home town Thurles so it was nice to catch up on the town gossip too!

Frances ended up wearing Ben’s shoes for part of the evening! We were all glammed up for the rugby because we were going to Vanessa’s birthday party afterwards and Frances was wearing really uncomfortable shoes. I’d brought Ben’s shoes with me because he’d forgotten them so she thought she’d slip them on to give herself a break from the heels. We really got the giggles seeing her wear his massive shoes!

Vanessa’s birthday party was brilliant. It was at her boyfriend’s mum’s pub in north London. Lots of people we knew were there and it was a really relaxed evening – that’s what Vanessa is all about. She just loves having a good time and she’s got no airs and graces – I really love that about her. It was a really fun evening  as I knew it would be. Rochelle, Mollie, Vanessa and I got on the karaoke and Marvin, Ben and Vanessa’s boyfriend Gary got together for a photo.
