It's lovely to see it. 11 eggs; is that usual for blue tits? Here's hoping they all hatch and fledge.

11 is pretty normal for Blue Tits, there can be a lot fewer, but up to 16 or 17 is not unheard of... Due to the high risk of becoming prey they lay so many, it is unlikely that all 11 will fledge, as that is a LOT of mouths to feed!.
