The end of the week

It feels like it's been a long one. We've been a lot busier this week - partly the good weather, partly everything starting again after the easter holidays and partly that I'm feeling better. Boy am I tired now though!

Yesterday we went to see the fine lady and the boy could have stayed there all day. Not only is it a great climbing place it's also at a busy roundabout and so a great place for watching lorries, buses and vehicular transport of all kinds.

The statue is very tall - and yet somehow she has a very shiny nipple...

On lorry watch.

One of the latest obsessions is working out signs and symbols and letters are a part of this (we're a long way off reading, he's bright but he's not that bright). We had to go the whole way round the plinth and do the whole rhyme letter by letter.

Today was just the local park (twice at latest count) and the garden.

The boy had adopted the climbing frame as vantage point and spends a good amount of his play time taking in the world from up high.

The rest of the time he's just going higher...

The girl has been unsettled today - I suspect it's all that growing. She's now a chunking 5kg (11lbs) and without slings I don't know how I'd get through the day as she's too long and floppy to hold in one hand.

The bear loves the sun. And loves it even more that he's getting lots of company in the garden.

We had great home made pizza for tea. This has been the first week I've done a meal plan and stuck to it.


  1. You're doing really well, and your children are beautiful - I think my baby is older than yours and you're more organised lol - yay for slings though don't know how I managed without them! Love Sarah

  2. thanks Sarah but I'm not organised at all!
