Our Weekly Roundup #35

Since our last roundup, we’ve had the Easter Holidays, a trip to Legoland – and I jumped out of a plane!

  • I’ve always wanted to do a skydive even though the thought terrified me. After my husband did one last year and loved it, I decided just to go for it and signed up with 4 friends. There really isn’t anything quite like it. I’ll be writing a blog post about my experience soon but it was the scariest and most exhilarating thing I’ve ever done – and I can’t help but feel incredibly proud of myself. Plus I’ve raised over £800 for the MS Society so far!

Our Weekly Roundup #34

  • The week got off to a surprisingly bright start with a glimpse of Spring, albeit brief. We went to the beach on Saturday and twice on Monday – partly because the tide was in when we visited in the morning, so Clara and I just got to walk across the pebbles, and partly because Izzy was desperate to play in the sand after school. They got soaked going in the cold sea but they had grins from ear to ear.

  • The nice weather also meant Izzy could finally get out on her bike. The rain has put awash to that over the last few weekends. She tried to ride without stabilisers for the first time and was quite unsteady and very frustrated but she did well for her first attempt. Meanwhile Clara was zooming off on her big sister’s old scooter without a care or fear in the world.

Our Weekly Roundup #33

  • Last weekend Izzy and I went to see the new Disney Beauty and the Beast film… and it was amazing. Very true to the original Disney animation, with the familiar songs and even down to many of the lines spoken, but with a few added extras fitting in nicely. I’ve even downloaded the soundtrack so if anyone passes me in the car I’m not in pain – I’m just belting out songs and imagining I’m an actual Disney Princess. Izzy loved it too though it was a bit dark in places so some young children might be a little scared.

Our Weekly Roundup #32

  • This week we have two visitors staying with us – Clara brought home George the Bear from nursery to stay for the week, and then Izzy was picked to bring home Ed the Ted from school. They were both so excited that it was their turn and that their teddies could be friends.

Of course it means having to do fun things that we can take photos of and write about in their books. And as the weather has been rubbish the photo opportunities have been few and far between. We did head out for lunch today and went out to do a few jobs yesterday – but most of the weekend has been spent cuddled up on the sofa introducing the girls to the Harry Potter films. Izzy is a huge fan already so I think we will have to buy the books next.

Our Weekly Roundup #31

It’s half term here but unfortunately I’ve been at work for the first half of it so tomorrow is the first day of the holidays that I will be with the kids. I’m not quite sure what we are going to do yet – I wanted to pack lots of things into what’s left of the school break but it very much depends on the weather, and I can see us spending far more time than I’d like in front of Paw Patrol with the kids fighting over who ate the last raisin!
