I had a strange day dream today – you know the ones where you drift off for a few moments and think “Oh, where was I?”. Well anyway, my thought was: what would work do if the children were let loose in the office? The decisions they would make for example: absolutely no worry about risks, speak their mind and not worry about what people felt. I can’t work out if it would be a good thing or a bad thing! haha 🙂
Today started off with just Isla and I: mowing the lawn and doing the housework. Then when Daddy and Noah came home, we took a walk in the sunshine to the park. The children were being so lovely together. Noah put a shirt and tie on, when asked why he said “because it’s Mothers Day and I am going to be nice to Isla for the day”. It was random, but so funny. They do say the most peculiar things. The afternoon was full of yummy food and watching Moana, of course. I hope everyone had a nice Mothers Day.
Today the boys went camping and so it was just me and my girl. She dressed in her special Disney Jasmine dress and looked absolutely brilliant. We went to see Beauty and the Beast which was amazing and spent the day with all the special Mummies in our lives.
Noah gave me these after school, a “tea-rrific” message in the mug card and some sunflower seeds in the pot with a lovely poem about how I helped him grow – like that seed. It’s very cute and I am very grateful. I thought they were two very cute ideas from school.
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.
