DATELINE MONDAY 21ST MAY 2018
Happy Monday I hope you are well, Chag Sameach (this means I wish you an enjoyable festival in Hebrew) I hope, that if you are celebrating the two day Jewish festival of Shavuot that happens seven weeks after Passover and that started Saturday evening that you are having a terrific time, if you are celebrating Ramadan I hope all is going well with the daily fasting. Monday style greetings from London W10, I hope you had a great weekend. I'm sure you will have an eve better weekend next weekend, why you ask? well in case you have forgotten it is a bank holiday weekend. Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Did you see it? Did you watch all of it? Did you go? Of course, I'm referring to the wedding, not just any wedding, the wedding of the year. I do like the Royal Family but I think you guys know that and even if you don't like the Royal family, it's nice to have a bit of a celebration. Harry and Meghan's wedding was an amazing advert for Great Britain, the weather was great, the pomp and circumstance was an ever world class we Brits know how to do an awesome occasion.
Talking of marriage I wonder if Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un will finally be a match made in peaceful heaven or not, only time will tell.
OMG have you seen the news footage on the TV of the volcano erupting in Hawaii it is just amazing, the forces of nature are truly awesome, if I had endless stacks of cash I would have bought a ticket and flown to Hawaii I would love to see this type of nature in action.

Leyla and Hannah's twitter and witter bit of the Monday morning e mail
Hannah enjoyed her first cheer leading competition last Thursday, she had her cheerleading outfit on OMG, she was so excited, a little bit disappointed that they only came fourth. Ten teams competing, I don't think she quite believed it was the taking part that counted and not the winning, another mile stone in her life. I managed to drag a reluctant Leyla to watch her sister compete, she really didn't want to go but as ever when she got there, she had a great time.
On Sunday after attending synagogue for the Shavuot service we were due to enjoy a long standing invitation to lunch at a very close friends of ours. I asked the girls if they wanted to come, Hannah was immediately up for it Hannah even came to Synagogue with me, but Leyla was having none of it "Daddy I am not going" as an experienced Dad of 15 year's service I have learned what fights to fight and what not to get excited about. OK Leyla not a problem there is food in the fridge knock yourself out. We have a great lunch and Leyla had time to herself a result for everyone.
That's it you are now up to date wishing you a great week ahead
