With less than a week to go until half term the kids are more than ready for a holiday. It doesn’t feel like all that long ago since we were off for Christmas, yet the kids and I are both in much-need of a well-earned rest. We haven’t a huge amount planned for the half term, I’ve a few appointments written in the diary but other than that, I’m trying to keep our schedule fairly clear.
Our Little Lego Lover
Having watched the Lego Movie 2 over the weekend, J is now set upon adding to his ever-growing Lego collection with yet more plastic-fantastic sets.…
Having woken to a dusting of snow, the children couldn’t wait to get wrapped up warm and to head out to play in the white stuff. J was first out, pelting with me with snowballs from left, right and centre as I desperately tried to de-ice the car. He was super excited by the arrival of the snow, though disappointed that he was unable to head out sledging as school beckoned.
Thumbs Up For Snow
E meanwhile busied herself with making snow angels, whilst laying upon her freshly washed, pale pink jacket. I must remember to buy her darker coloured clothing once she has outgrown her current clobber. …
I’m sick to the back teeth of being cooped up indoors, yet I cannot seem to cope with the cold. Thankfully the sun was shining this afternoon and whilst it was, we made the most of it, by getting out into the garden for some fun on the swings.
Swinging Into Spring
It was so lovely to watch the kids run about, screeching and screaming as they hopped from the swings to the slide, huge smiles plastered across their faces. It’s amazing how much difference just getting outside and escaping from the ‘four wall fortress’ can make to your day, your mind suddenly feels a little lighter and the weight from your shoulders seems to lift for a moment.…
Looking at all my friends photos online, I feel kind of bad that most of my shots tend to get snapped indoors at present. Don’t get me wrong, my kids and I are outside regularly whilst at play. However, it has been so cold recently that we’ve not been outside for too long before heading back indoors to thaw out. Apologies therefore if my pictures come across as bland and boring.
As part of E’s extra curricular activities, we have spent time playing a few maths games together – one of which she was extremely excited about playing and has requested endless times since.…
Having spent most of the holidays parading in our pyjamas, the kids seem to have stuck to the habit and who can blame them? I find so much comfort just from putting on a pair of slippers, it’s the first thing I do upon arriving home. I can therefore understand my little ones love for lounge wear. I’d happily wear my pyjamas and dressing gown all day long if I could, as for fluffy bed socks – I can’t get enough of them!
With it being winter and slightly on the chilly side, E decided to wear her ‘Ninny (her word for bunny) onesie’ over her leotard, whilst on the way to her dance class this evening.…
