Hannah’s Big Weekend

A couple of weekends ago we celebrated a rather big birthday for my sister, and what an amazing time we had! A group of us hired a holiday home in Chichester near the sea for the weekend. We celebrated by eating a LOT, playing games and quizzes about Hannah’s life, catching up with old friends, enjoying walks on the beach, and snoozing by the fire. It was such a good weekend filled with such lovely people. If only we all lived closer to each other!

Below is our “grand designs” house:

A group of us went to Mass on the Saturday and wow was it the quietest most peaceful Mass I have experienced in a very long time! Benedict fell asleep in the car, and then remained asleep on Dom’s shoulder for the duration of the whole Mass… Incredibly thankful for this gift. Although, I think Dom’s arm was pretty dead by the end!

Back at the house, a very intense game of chess:

I love these next two photos! Joseph really wants to play but Benedict just has other things on his mind:
