Hope you‚Äôre having a good week. Ben and I took Aoife to the Hilton London Syon Park hotel this weekend, which was really nice because it‚Äôs very rare that we both get a whole weekend off.¬†We went swimming and then to the spa, where I had a lovely ‚Äėlava shell‚Äô massage. It‚Äôs kind of like a hot stone massage, but instead of stones, it‚Äôs 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!¬†¬†We also took Aoife to the swimming pool which she absolutely loved, because she loves being in the water. I‚Äôm 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.
I‚Äôve got to be careful about what I say in front of Aoife as she‚Äôs started repeating everything she hears. I accidentally swore the other day and she copied me, so I said, ‚ÄúAoife, I‚Äôll be saying ‚Äėoh shoot‚Äô instead now!‚ÄĚ It‚Äôs funny because when you‚Äôre 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 ‚Äď they pick up everything that you say! It‚Äôs also quite exciting though, because every day she‚Äôs learning more and more vocabulary.
Ben had some exciting news this week as he‚Äôs been signed on to NEXT management. He‚Äôs done shoots before for magazines, so he‚Äôs got some experience.
