Afternoons in the park with the cousins. What was with the weather today? So beautiful!
Even these faces I find just super cute! I tried so hard to get the poop face captured but I wasn't fast enough!
I took the kids to a secret nature reserve near our house today. I went full scale 'entertainer Mummy'. You know the type - "look kids! A thorny stick!", "look at this leaf Annabelle, doesn't it feel crunchy", "what animals can we see in the trees Joel? Can you see a squirrel?". The kids just whinged about walking and then spent 5 minutes putting assorted items in a hole rather than gazing at the beautiful scenery. This is not the motherhood I had envisioned. 😂😂😂
Monday means Little Creations - our local playgroup! Adelais is asserting her role as playgroup princess. (Photo set up by Annabelle - what else are sisters for?)
It's Lee's lie in day so I'm in charge of keeping the kids downstairs and fairly quiet for the next few hours. It's freezing in our house. Unless the heating is blasting at 100degrees it doesn't feel like the house keeps away the chill so whoever gets up first always gets hit with the icy-ness. I think I'll be spending the first hour of my day under a blanket.
This girl's going to have an amazing immune system. EVERYTHING works its way into her mouth.
I'm down with a cold again. Headache, runny nose, that kind of thing. Lee figured some fresh air would help so to the farm we went. The kids threw a tantrum, the wind made my face cold and now I just want a nap. I got some cute pictures though so I can pretend a marvellous time was had by all.
It's pyjama Friday! I've blown up balloons and am trying to get through some washing. Today the kids are trying to teach Rosie 'fetch' but she's not really feeling it.
I'm not allowed to watch Annie when she's doing gymnastics. For all I know, they could be putting cbeebies on for an hour and raking it in at £4 a session. 😂😂😂 It gives Addie and I time together though - and Addie loves it! She gets lots of attention from the other parents who just coo at her about how pretty she is. She is the ultimate mommy magnet and has helped me begin many a coversation - team work makes the dream work!
Well this is all kinds of levels of cuteness. Girlie Thursdays are pretty great - we've done a food shop today and then Annie helped me to choose a new coat (I accidentally hot washed my new one and it's ripped at the seams and the stuffing has displaced!). We almost bought krispy kreme doughnuts in Tesco but managed to resist. Gymnastics next and then coffee before picking up Joel. Love these girls!
After 3 attempts to get this video live it is finally up! @blanxuk sent me their power white treatment and I've done a review of how I've got on! Head over to my youtube channel and give it a watch!
I love being a dog mum.
We've been to pick up new baby quail today! You can follow along with what we're doing on @thequailgarden. Dreams are happening!
There was something really sweet about watching these two cuddled up together during last week. Annie LOVED being at nursery today though - you can tell she's really missed it!
Looks like carbs are this girls favourite. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree...
Addie in illness turns into a cling-on. There's no putting this little one down at the moment! I love the cuddles, but it would be nice if I could make a cuppa without her screams.
