The kids are away over the Bank Holiday so Husband and I are making the most of it with multiple trips to the cinema and a cheeky cocktail!
Well, didn't April fly by! For me it was a month of two halves: Easter holidays and my Mum's wedding. So the early part of the month was days out with my girlies, cinema trips on wet days and fun in the garden and park when the sun showed up. We also went up to London to see the latest Disney on Ice show at Wembley. And the back end I was completely absorbed in making my Mum's wedding cake which was a huge challenge for me and I was super pleased with the results. Esspecially as I made all the sugarpaste flowers by hand. The wedding was beautiful day. May holds the countdown to our holiday! Woo hoo!
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.
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.
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.
Last Sunday of 2017! Here we are at midnight. The Littlest crashed at 10:30 but Little E made it to the fireworks. Happy New Year all!
