#LivingArrows – Chocolate Mice & Board Game Bedlam 38/52 (2019)

This weekend marked a ‘first’ as E was very kindly invited for a day out to celebrate her besties birthday. Up until now, I’ve always been there for birthday parties and such-like and I must admit that it felt rather peculiar handing my Princess over to someone else for the day…

E had the golden ticket and was off to visit the local chocolate factory with her bestie! Later that afternoon E returned on cloud nine, high on sugar and chatting ‘all things chocolate’. She had been spoilt rotten and had the best day!

J meanwhile appreciated a restful weekend, though I suspect he was a little envious of his sisters big day out, thus we got the board games out and spent some one-to-one time together.

Having been thoroughly thrashed by my son whilst playing Frustration, I got even with a game of Battleships. It’s all very well playing nice, but after ten years of desperately trying to rig games so that I lose (just to please my kids) enough is enough – it was ALL OUT WAR.

The competition just got real as my ten-year-old is just like his mother (that’ll be me) – he’s out to win!

    Great pics! I bet your daughter had great fun at the chocolate factory. I can’t wait until my kids are old enough to play board games! #livinngarrows

    I felt it was such a milestone when the children started going to parties by themselves. So nice to be able to just leave them to it for an hour or two x
