I had a lovely start to the day: visiting both Isla and Noah’s classes. The difference between reception and year 1 is huge though. Isla’s class was based on the class a whole, doing things together. Noah’s class broke into groups to do work, I guess they can be trusted to get on. Noah is a whizz with his sums – he came out with large sums and I was so impressed. Isla is a whizz with her spellings and reading, I couldn’t believe how quick she was to answer the questions. It was lovely to see.
Tonight Daddy took the kiddies swimming after school, whilst Mummy did some shopping. Then we had Uncle Tommy visit for dinner and to watch the football. It was a nice day and quite different too – which is always good, to shake things up a bit.
My Cheeky little monkeys, I love these happy faces. They were calling me “bottom face” at the time, that should shed some light on why they looked so cheeky. They were watching each other play on subway surfer – the new favourite game and it was nice hearing them help one another.
To celebrate the new Disney movie Beauty and the Beast, Sky Cinema are showing the original Disney Classic. You can download it from Sky Cinema onto your Sky Q box and watch it anytime, in any room. Amazing. I love this film and cannot wait to see the new take at the weekend. Thanks very much @SkyCinemaUK for Isla’s Belle doll, she has been welcomed with open arms by the other Princesses.
Today we went on a fab bike ride, it was the first time Noah had biked along side us as opposed to being on a bike seat. He actually performed better than I did. We cycled 6.2 miles and he only complained a couple of times, one of them being up hill and against the wind. I think I have suffered the most afterwards too – saddle sore. Ouch!
I love this photo, not only because the dogs look like they are focused on something interesting, but because the sky looks completely different from left to right – its like two different days. I have to say the grey clouds did ease off a bit and then it rained! We had a nice day, seeing friends and we went to the theatre in the evening which was lovely. A nice change.
I finished Mrs Bunny tonight for little Isla, she loved it. I wouldn’t say it is the best thing I have ever created but it was the first time I had tried amigurami and next time I know I would make it better. Now I have had instructions to make her a pink dress, boots and some bloomers too!
Today is Mumma’s birthday. I can’t believe it has been a year since we last did the afternoon tea thing. It was lovely to spend the afternoon with the ladies in my life and talk, without being interrupted by the little ones. I ate far too much and drank a whole pot of coffee, then two cups of tea on top! I was fit to burst when I left.
I have been practising crochet with this amigurami toy, this is the first time I have made something and I thought it would be a nice idea to make a bunny. Seen as though it’s Easter soon and all. I love it. The combination of the small hook and the cotton yarn – the pattern looks really nice.
Today was a busy day, normal school run in the morning then Mummy had a course. It was nice as it was just my team, so a good team-building day. The kiddies went to school club in the evening which was fun, they made lots of things and they always come back with HAMA bead shapes. They love them at the moment.
