For weeks the Hubby and I have been looking forward to a date day. We got the train to Carlisle and went for lunch at The Last Zebra. Everything on the menu looked delicious but I eventually settled for the belly pork which was amazing. Hubby had the Cumbrian burger which was stacked high and looked epic. Of course we had to sample a couple of cocktails while we were there, starting with my favourite, a mojito.
After lunch we went to see the new Avengers film at the cinema which was really good. Unfortunately during the film I started feeling really unwell (nothing to do with the cocktails!) and by the end my throat was killing me and I felt really achy. So we got an earlier train instead of hitting a few more bars as planned, and were home to relieve the babysitters (grandparents) by 8pm.
Recovering from ick
Yesterday was mainly spent in bed and necking hot lemon in an attempt to get rid of illness. Today I am feeling a bit better but still not great so Hubby has taken the kids out for a few hours to give me a break.
Shopping for holidays
Not long to go now until our holiday in the sun so I’ve been making sure we have essentials like suncream and buying the cutest summer outfits for the girls. We got some cute shorts, canvas shoes and a little pink romper suit from Sainsburys, tshirts from Asda and a summer dress from Matalan.
If anyone is going on holiday, or just likes to take the little ones swimming, Huggies Little Swimmers nappies are half price in Boots at the moment – we’ve stocked up for our hols!
Clara is 11 months old!
Just one month of her first birthday, I can’t believe where the time has gone! She is a little monkey, getting into everything at the moment!
