Presents!

For me :o)


I have been looking at these prints for a long time but as we haven’t finished decorating yet I have put off buying any, until now. Emily has already claimed one (i am hiding the stickers!) , so I will just have to buy some more at some point….

Burning the Candle

I am absolutely exhausted. Early mornings, late nights and constant interruptions throughout the night from the smallest one have left me feeling like a wrung out rag :o( I spent Saturday and Sunday night in Emily’s bed to minimise the night time feeds (will that boy every wean???) and it has definitely helped. I’m feeling a bit better today, but still not 100%. Just wanted to pop by and thank the McKays for using our EC code :o)

Civil War at the Museum

Our local museum is a great place to take the kids – well Emily, as Isaac would trash the place in five minutes – on a Saturday morning. Most Saturdays they have some activities to keep the little ‘uns busy whilst importing a piece of historical knowledge.

This week the museum had teamed up with a local English Civil War society who were around town to promote themselves and to drum up a bit of support and local interest.

The society had provided some traditional costumes of the time for children to try on to get an idea of how people used to live. Also on display was replica armour and weapons including guns and long pikes.

Emily spent the morning making a model castle based on Donnington Castle, and then got dressed up.

We then stopped off for coffee and cakes at Nero and sat by the canal to enjoy a well earned treat before being summoned home for a spot of luncheon.

I HAMA’ed the kids!

Look! From this….

SCARY! Found here while tracking down new gadgetry to add to my Google homepage. I particularly like E’s fangs.

I’ve been tidying the playroom and E’s bedroom today as both were long overdue for a clear out – fun. Mick took Isaac out and Emily was playing on my Gameboy so i had no excuse ;o)
I got 1/2 way through and got bored – as always happens in such circumstances – and so there is now a crate full of stuff with no home cluttering up my craft room :o/
Emily has a friend over tonight for a sleepover so i am hoping the late night and clock change will mean they don’t get up too early…unlike last time when they got up at FIVE THIRTY IN THE MORNING!!!!!!
Right off to do some sewing………..

I took Isaac to the doctors about his coughing and they’ve put him on Ventolin/Beclametasone to see if it helps. He has improved, but then maybe he is just getting over the cold?? We’ll see.

Emily has been i’ll again, stomach upset this time. I feel like we have been house-of-constant-illness for the entire winter, not like us at all. I’m fed up with it and can’t wait for spring, thankfully it doesn’t seem far away :o)

We’ve been in the garden a fair bit enjoying the lovely weather. Isaac is getting to grips with the climbing frame and having a lot of fun while Emily has been sketching the flowers.

Finally a big thankyou to the Grays for using our EC code :o)
