This week… 9-15 November 

Izzy had her first ever parents evening. According to her teacher she has settled in lovely at school and is always enthusiastic about everything! The best bit was looking through some of her workbooks, such as the ‘Weekend News’ were she draws a picture every Monday to explain what she has done over the weekend. It’s funny to see what kind of things are really big news to her – like going for a walk and finding a conker, or going swimming in the big pool. I know she has only been there for a couple of months but its reassuring to know that she has settled in well and is trying her best. She is so determined to be ‘Learner of the week’ and is always a little disappointed when the accolade goes to one of her classmates (although not jealous, just determined to try even harder, which is nice!) and she is never prouder than when she gets a sticker – whether its for eating all her lunch or doing really well at reading.

How to make an aquarium cake

A friend and I made this cake for our other friend’s 30th birthday. And, if I do say so myself, it is pretty epic. There is a long standing tradition of buying each other fish themed gifts, a running joke of sorts, so when it came to deciding what cake to make, we knew it had to involve fish somehow.

This week… 24-31 August

This week has been less accident filled, although Clara did get stung by a wasp at nursery. She took it in stride though. And, my appeal for last week’s parking fine was successful, after I emailed the company to explain that Izzy had face planted the floor, thus making me late.

This Week… 6-12 July

We started the week with our 2nd Wedding anniversary on Monday. The day didn’t get off to a great start when I got a phonecall from Clara’s nursery at 9.30 to say she had been ill. Her Daddy had the unenviable job of leaving work to look after her through the worst of the stomach bug but by the evening she was feeling much better and we still managed to have a nice evening with steak and gifts.

This week… 25-31 May

I haven’t written this feature for a couple of weeks now as we have been enjoying an awesome family holiday in Portugal. I’ve got ideas for a few holiday themed posts – time dependant, of course, as tomorrow I start back at work part time after 13 months of maternity leave. Things are going to be a little hectic around here!

Clara is one!

The big news this week is that baby celebrated her first birthday. I’m now officially Mummy of a 4 year old and a 1 year old – how did that happen?!
