Today I took the doggies for a walk in-between rain showers, in their new warm coats. They looked so cute and they matched. Some children walked past us with their teacher and they all said “ah” as they walked past. That hasn’t happened for a long time. I was glad to be inside and cosy today, it’s been very windy.
After we school we went to Great Grandmas and the kiddies have their tea. They absolutely love it because Grandma delivers their tea on soft cushioned trays, with pots for their ketchup and special glasses for their milk. They are treated like royalty. It’s all about routine. They know what to expect and in a way that makes them calm and happy.
Today we had a busy day, Tuesday’s seem to be hectic at the moment: forest school after school club, home for 10 minutes to eat and get changed and then off to Rainbows. The kiddies ended up coming back home and eating another dinner with Mummy & Daddy. The kiddies have been making swings at forest school. You can see them scattered all around the school grounds.
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.
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!
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.
