However, it would have meant that I'd have missed not only Aaron's birthday but one of our very best friends coming to stay.
Martin is the only one so far who has come to see us both in Cyprus more than once, this is because he
Aaron booked some days of work so we all got to spend the whole weekend together, we drank, ate, drank, went to the pool, drank some more.... you kind of get the picture :) My parents very kindly looked after Leo so we could go to the beach on our own, it was lovely but a little confusing not having to make sandcastles and dig holes, I read a book but Aaron sat looking a little lost for quite a while!
Leo really enjoyed having his 'Cod-farmer' here (Think that one might just stick - sounds much more exciting than Godfather!) and even asked to see him before Daddy yesterday morning!
Monday was Aaron's actual birthday (and I'm still including it as our weekend was four days long) and we went to a favourite pub of ours, again just the 3 of us as my parents babysat again.
It's becoming quite a regular birthday destination as I first went there last year for a friends birthday and then again in October for mine. It's a great pub, with good food and karaoke, and as a friend of ours works there we always end up with a rather large cocktail to share :)
It was a great night, despite the fact I could have ended up emptying the pub by singing karaoke twice, I'm not a great singer but I often seem to forget this fact. I even sang the very first song lured by the free cocktail on offer for the first to get up!
We had a brilliant few days even though I did suffer yesterday with Leo's 6.30am wake up call, it was all worth it and now we just have the problem of trying to explain to Leo that he won't see him again for a while.... he keeps saying 'Martin on airplane, all gone..... come back now?'
