I’d like to think that our kids get their creativity from Paul and I, whether that’s true who knows. Either way both J & E are incredibly creative kids, who seem at their happiest when sat at the table with their colouring pens and crayons.
Little Miss Mindful
E has become rather taken with what we refer to as ‘mindful colouring’ whereas J has transferred his skills to his laptop, which he is now using to create a range of comic strips and animations upon.
Little Graphics Guy
Whilst I’m forever trying to find homes for the kids endless piles of pictures, portraits and such-like, I couldn’t be a prouder parent. …
Being actively involved within Education, I was more than aware that ‘World Book Day’ was fast approaching. However, I somehow left things till last-minute thus missing the postage deadlines to purchase costumes or hats for the kids to wear. As my children have been asked to cast their costumes aside in favour for a hat, I was half hoping things would a little easier this year. Who was I kidding?!
E had it in her head that she wanted to be Mary Poppins. Could I find a suitable hat? Could I heck as like! J very kindly lent us his grey hat to cover in ribbon and flowers, which I ran around like a mad woman finding and purchasing as the local florist happened to be shut – typical! …
Late last year Paul booked us all in for a fun-filled day at Wacky World – an inflatable assault course which tours the UK, offering entertainment at an exhausting level.
Neither J or E had seen anything of the sort before and were thrilled at the chance to let off some steam and to build up a sweat. It was so wonderful to watch the kids as they ran around ‘Wacky World’ giving anything and everything a go.
Our Ninja Warrior
The kids had no fear, they were more than happy to throw themselves from great heights clattering into crash mats.…
It hasn’t been the most relaxed nor restful start to the half term holidays. I spent this morning visiting the A&E department for a second set of X-rays to assess the damage done during a fall earlier last week, meanwhile Paul took the dog to the vets (where she was being spayed and having a lump removed from her head) then left the kids with my folks before rushing off to take the Mini for a service.
Having established that the fracture is in fact ripped ligaments, I then made my way to Tesco where I played trolley dash before meeting up with Paul and heading towards Asda for a bite to eat.…
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.…
