Our everyday life: week 47

This past week we have continued to be sick, everything has felt like a blur, so this photo sums us up pretty well :)

I can’t tell you how excited C was to see the lights going up on the High Street. Christmas is coming…

Speaking of excited, I found this In The Night Garden craft book (brand new!) in Oxfam for 99p! Hours of entertainment :)

Saw Jack’s post about homemade pop tarts and knew exactly what to do with my leftover scraps of pastry…

C and I went with our friends to the beach during the week. Crazy, perhaps? Logan had the most fun I think :)

It was a little cold…

…but quiet, at least…

…we couldn’t believe people we actually going in the water…

When it started hailing we quickly found somewhere to eat lunch! The boys dismantled the display – and practiced using the word “heavy” a lot ;)

On Sunday we spent about 10 minutes pretending to be cultural at the British Museum. C hadn’t napped so we didn’t want to push it…

There was a teeny, tiny, exhibit on the Wise Men of Persia. Like our very own C :)

C couldn’t make up his mind on which fruit to eat after dinner, so he simply had a bit of everything…yes, lemon included.

Wishing you a happy and healthy week (we need it!)

Our everyday life: week 46

Very few photos this week as we have basically been sick with nasty colds and haven’t been that busy! We did look to buy a house, but it had sold (within 4 days!) before we could make an offer. Sad!

First gingerbread man? Not sure which limb to munch first ;)

C has a notebook which we draw in together. On each page there is at least one lorry, obsessed!

New smile! I think it’s adorable :)

Our one trip out this week was one we couldn’t cancel! A work charity quiz night, which was actually quite good fun. To top it off, we came 3rd out of 25 teams – my big boss was there too, phew! They served a ploughmans meal halfway through whilst we tried to identify random celebrities.

Nanny knitted C a new cardigan – it fits!

Pink Panther paid C a flying visit (thanks to Daddy ;) )

Hope you have a happy and healthy week – we need one too!!

Our everyday life: week 45

It’s amazing what young C finds on his travels around the house…

…he absolutely did Mess with Texas though, sorry Chucky!

Fighting some bugs = smoothie for dinner.

I love that he built this tower without us realising – really growing up tooooooo fast.

Work dinner and drinks on Friday – expensive, but fun! My friend tagged along too ;)

…2 for £8 before 9pm…sensible accountants stocked up just in time ;) Yummy.

Made a random crumble with leftover roasted butternut – not bad, not bad!

Best way to spend the (early) mornings :)

“Girl” likes to spend her time reading books about baking, apparently.

A good spot to be when it’s raining miserably!

We really miss having chickens. They would have happily gobbled this all up for us. I wouldn’t have told them that these veggies went in chicken pie, though.

Lessons in piano part 1. Volume detected.

Learning all about Connect 4 with his Uncle and Aunt.

Bake n Shake date night! This marked C’s first night away from us, waaah! We went out for a quick dinner and then saw The Duck House (before it’s West End debut). Really funny play, go see it if you can!

Making play-dough animals – horse, right?

Halloween week – so many children celebrating down our road. It was pretty special! Oh, and spot the figs?

“UH OH”.

I HATE this slide. C LOVES to watch the big kids on it. It’s only a matter of time…p.s. beautiful day.

Feeding time at the pond :)

So sweet to spend time with my little man watching the ducks. Lucky mama.
