Sunday – I spent all morning baking and assembing a fairy princess castle cake to take to a birthday party this afternoon. The party was a princess and pirates one so Daddy and I managed to make a couple of pirate costumes for both boys, who thought they were great fun! They both had a brilliant time at the party and the cake went down well too.
Monday– at playgroup this morning Jenson did some more painting which he really enjoys, and today’s ‘masterpiece’ is a painting of a trampoline!
Tuesday – Granma and Gran popped over this morning which Jenson enjoyed. This afternoon he and I played with the play dough. When I collected Burton I was delighted (as was he) to discover that he has been awarded a certificate for his hard worj with phonics. Apparently he was awarded it last Friday, but of course he was off school which is why he didnt get it until today.
Wednesday – After taking Burton to school Jenson and I went for a little walk so he could go jumping in puddles which was great fun and as soon as we got home we had to change his trousers as they were soaking wet!
Thursday – a friend popped over this morning so I was up early baking some cakes for her visit before the school run. After she left Jenson and I popped to Sainsburys as they have a 1/2 price toy sale on so I managed to get a few Christmas presents! It was dry after school so we ambled our way back to the car and Burton and a few of his friends like to climb this tree which is in the school entrance area. Here is Burton hanging off the branch like a monkey.
Friday – more puddle splashing for Jenson as we went for another walk this morning as it was quite a nice day. Afterwards we went food shopping. This afternoon at 2pm Burton’s school held an open afternoon where parents can pop in and see what their children have benen getting up to. I enjoyed seeing Burton’s ‘journey book’ and learning about what he has achieved in his first 6 weeks and it is reassuring to know that he does actually do stuff, as he is not good at remembering when he gets home from school! I am pleased at how well he is doing. Afterwards, both boys went to Granma and Grampy’s for a sleepover .
Saturday – a lie in until 7.45am yaaaay!! Lol. Then it was a rush to get over to Granma’s to collect the boys and get to the swimming pool for 9am for swimming. When we got home the boys and I did some drawing and cutting. Then I took them to the shop to buy some crafty stuff as next weeks weather forecast is not looking favourable which is typical with it being half term , after all the lovely weather we have had for the last few weeks! This afternoon I managed to persuade Daddy to come on a walk to the park with the boys which we enjoyed despite the blustery weather. The boys enjoyed this ride and wanted to go round and round, faster and faster and were both giggling a lot. When they dismounted, Jenson was unable to stand up due to being dizzy! Silly boys.
