This week… 6-12 April

Fun on the swings
We made the most of the beautiful weather this week (before it turned to torrential rain) and had three trips to the park. Izzy got to run off some energy and pretend she was a Ninja (yes, Ninjas are the big thing in our house at the moment) while Clara got to go on a swing for the very first time. She wasn’t too sure what to make of it at first but then, gripping on tight, she started to giggle everytime the swing moved.

10 months old

Another month has flown by and my littlest is getting bigger by the day. I am a bit behind with this post as she turned 10 months 2 week ago, but time has just got away from me!

That’s one of the reasons I started this blog – to record all the little and ordinary yet at the same time amazing moments that make up our family life.

I try not to take it personally.  She is quite fickle and within five minutes I will be back to being the “best Mummy in the world”. Which sounds like a huge compliment, until you hear her say in the same breath that Daddy is the best “in the whole universe”! (more…)

This week… 30 March – 5 April

It’s been a busy first week of the Easter holidays as we have been down in Manchester for my sister-in-law’s wedding and then to Gulliver’s World yesterday (both of which I will blog about this week). We got back late last night so today has been spent in our PJs, watching Planes 2 and the Lego Movie and eating a lot of chocolate. And writing this post for the second time as I published it earlier and for some unknown reason it has completely vanished! So frustrating! But anyway, for the second time today, here goes. (more…)

Easter parade
This week Izzy was excited to take part in the Easter bonnet parade at pre-school. She was really proud of her hat and I made some cakes for the Easter fayre.
