This Week… 23 February – 1 March

We made…
Pom pom insects. Izzy woke up with a gunky eye on Monday so I kept her off school and we spent the morning doing “arts and crafts” at her request to keep  her occupied.

Wicked Wednesdays

I came downstairs one day last week (after only being back in the house 2 minutes) to find Izzy had ratched through my bag to get the last sausage roll. At least she went to get a plate!

This Week… 16-22 February

It was half term here so I’ve been trying to entertain Izzy for the week which hasn’t been easy given the weather, being unwell and Izzy generally being in a wicked mood. On Monday she was hitting out and throwing toys around in a temper tantrum and we have spent most of the week trying to recover from that!

We baked…
Yummy gingerbread men. Izzy decorated the biscuits (and the entire kitchen floor) with teeny tiny sprinkles, many of which have evaded the vacuum cleaner three times already. We also finally assembled the world’s smallest gingerbread house, which has been hiding in the cupboard since before Christmas. While decorating it, Izzy announced “I love Christmas. It makes my heart sing”

This week… 1-8 February 2015

We went…
For a walk around Buttermere in the Lake District. I can’t believe Izzy walked almost 5 miles without too much complaining! I was pretty tired myself – I don’t know how her little legs managed it. It did take us over three hours but we had lots of fun having a picnic, scrambling over some rocky paths and going on a bear hunt through a cave. Izzy did get a bit upset when a dog stole the stick she was carrying, but she did recover and spend the next half an hour chasing the dog and throwing more sticks at for him.
