Today was our normal Monday routine: school, work and Noah has beavers. Curry’s repair came out to fix our dishwasher, it was a 7:30am call out. I couldn’t believe how early it was. I did some work on Hubby’s website this evening and little Rambo snuggled up with me and I couldn’t resist a photo.

We went to Toys R Us this morning, it was great fun. The children were so well behaved. The plan was to take photos of all of the things they wanted to add to their Christmas list – they did! No begging for toys, I was so impressed. Isla came home and she had a list of 35 items on her list. Santa will need a new sleigh this year.
Today we had a nice chilled day, the kiddies played really nicely all afternoon. It was needed as little Isla hasn’t been well so she hasn’t been sleeping. Daddy and I went out for a lovely meal with some great friends. The meal was delicious, totally recommend the White Horse in Eaton Socon. I also found my favourite red wine: Cal Y Canto. Please locate this for me so I can get it on subscription.
Today felt really cold and frosty. It was -3 degrees when we got in the car at 7:30am. I loved the crispy sounds as we walked to breakfast club. The sky just looks chilly. Isn’t it amazing how the sky can make the mood of a day, so easily. It really felt Christmassy this morning.
One of the biggest priorities for couples planning a wedding are the memories. Naturally, you want the day to be as memorable as possible, so you never forget how much fun it was to get hitched. It’s interesting, then, that so many weddings follow a rigid formula.
Today after we took Snoopy to get his hair cut, we stopped at my favourite abandoned barn. I love it. It’s in the middle of some open fields and the sky was just perfect for photos with the littles ones. So I stopped on the way to school with the kiddies and then stopped with the doggies on the way home.
Tonight I had a chilled evening whilst Daddy was at College. I managed to catch up on a lot of things and it was nice snuggling up with the candles on. I love this time of year. Noah had a violin concert first thing this morning, which I had no idea about until another parent text me a photo (as requested by Noah), so I felt terrible about that. Apparently the letters went out when Noah had chicken pox!
Having children is one of the joys of life. Literally, the fruits of your labour will one day stop being that little bundle of joy in the cot sleeping so soundly and be a growing child bounding around. Its part of growing up to not know your strength, and that’s what playing around is all about. Children get to be free and learn what they’re capable of and how much fun it is to be a little carefree. The rough and tumble of play are best reserved for outside the house and in the garden.
The children currently do forest school on Tuesdays, it’s an after school club that just sounded amazing. The kiddies love it. Den building and swing making. Great fun! Whilst they were at club, Daddy and I walked hand in hand, walking the dogs. It was nice to spend time with my Hubby. The boys went to Wembley tonight to watch England v Brazil. So Isla and I had a girlie night. It was lovely.
Today we had these two little monkeys parents evening. They have been doing really well. I’m so glad that there behaviour is amazing at school. I’d rather the behaviour be better at school and worse at home. I just need to work on the at home! Both doing really well and still maths wizards!
