March was a very social one. It kicked off with a huge dump of snow on World Book Day. Then we struggled to Birmingham for My Mum's hen weekend. We celebrated the world's first Auntie's Day with my Besties and their kiddies but then Mother's Day was cancelled due a poorly Little I and in turn a poorly me! Then we celebrated my Gran's 80th with yet more snow. Nieces and Nephews visited and we enjoyed the run up to Easter. Phew. Bring on April and the wedding!
Little E had her first ever gymnastics competition today. She did so well. No medals this time but a great introduction to the competitive side of the sport (without any pressure!). Also important to see other girls and boys of all shapes and sizes rocking the trampette and tumble. Very positive body image message.
Last month we were invited to the launch of Dinosaurs In The Wild, the new immersive walk though experience at Greenwich Penninsula, London. Dinosaurs In The Wild transports visitors back in time to the cretaceous period and a world choked full of dinosaurs. With two dino obsessed little girls in tow we made our way up to London for the opening night to see if the experience at Time Base 67 would live up to expectations.
February is birthday season for me. My whole family within 5 days - seriously! So cake features lots in my photo roundup this month...
This little monkey turned 7 this week. Super proud of my biggest little one. Happy Birthday Little E.
I'm starting something new for 2018. A way to free some of my favourite photos from the past month from my phone. These are snaps I've caught on the hop and catalogue the highs and lows (and the normal bits in between) of the month. This ties in with my resolution to get more photos printed! I'm still undecided on the format so I'll be experimenting a little with how to display the pictures.
There hasn’t been much of these two on the blog lately. They have been loving our new home and the all the space we now have. It has made it easier for them to play together and I can see them growing closer by the day.
Babies are pretty delicate at first and up to the age of 12months their immune systems are weaker meaning they are more vulnerable to catching infection. Milk is a notorious for harboring bacteria making it super important to make sure all baby feeding equipment from bottles and teats to breast-pump parts and even soothers are sterilised before every use. Milton is a household name you can trust when it comes to keeping your family safe and I have one of their fantastic Combi Sterilisers to giveaway to one reader.
Just before Christmas One4all, the multi retailer gift card challenged me to shop for the perfect outfit using one of their loaded gift cards. I was super excited and had a wonderful day shopping on my own (yes on my own without the kids) looking for an outfit for my Grandparents Diamond Wedding Anniversary lunch. Not many couples make it to 60years married so this was a special family occasion.
This weekend saw my Sister in Law turn 40 and I decorated her this very special cake as part of some fun celebrations up in town.
