Breaking the rules

Well, it was a very special occasion - Sam's 5th birthday. His (unofficial) god parents were visiting from NYC, who he rarely sees, so playing hooky from school seemed ok on this occasion.

We had a great day, eating seafood at The Winking Prawn in Salcombe, playing in the sun on Bantham beach and a barbeque finale back home. I think he had an amazing day. The tears at bedtime because he didn't want it to end was proof enough.

I am completely and utterly exhausted. Like, I can't string a sentance together, think I'm gunna cry tired and I still have the birthday party to go yet. Twenty screaming kids, high on E numbers (see previous post) and a bouncy castle.
Wish me luck.
