The Summer Holidays aren’t what I expected them to be! I had so many plans for this year and so many things I wanted to do but unfortunately things don’t work out how we wanted them too!
Week 1 – 18th JUL – 24th JUL
Sat, Sun, Mon and Tuesday were all pretty quiet, we were packing and getting ready for going away for our first anniversary! My cousins had the children and they went to Drayton Manor and Cadbury World whilst we went out for a lovely all you can eat chinese and to The Glee Club afterwards to watch the comedy carousel and it was such an amazing night! Friday we went to the cinema to watch Inside Out.
Week 2 – 25th JUL – 31st JUL
Saturday on the way home we went to the Ice Cream Farm in Cheshire which was a lovely and then on the way home my whole world was turned upside down, Dan decided that he no longer wanted to be with me that he was no longer happy with me, the next two days were a total blur and I did nothing but cry, then Monday night it was as if a light switched on and I realised I had two choices, I could sit at home and mope about – which believe me I could quite easily have done – or I could get off my backside and make something of myself. I had to step up for me and for my three amazing kids and I needed to show them that I was ok! I didn’t want them to dislike their dad in the slightest and I knew that moping about and them seeing that would paint him in a bad light, so I stepped up and sorted myself out. We watched movies, and enjoyed time together!!
This week after browsing blogs, I have found the Me and Mine project with Dear Beautiful Boy, Bump to Baby, Capture By Lucy, Let’s Talk Mommy, Mummy Daddy Me and Tigerlilly Quinn and I love that I will be able to share our family photos with others and keep a record of what we have been doing that month too. So although I am a few days late I am joining in with February with some pictures we took down the beach 🙂
This month has seen us getting out and about a lot more as a family, lots of walks and fun all together. We had February Half Term so that was a great excuse to get out and about too 🙂
This week with the older ones back in school me and Harry went out with my friend and her son, who Harry loves, to visit a beautiful little place with a miniature railway – Harry loves trains so he was so excited the whole way there – probably a little over excited. But we can’t leave the bigger ones out now can we, we went for a lovely walk along the beach on Friday after school – I was meant to write this post last night, but then I realised I was up at 6.30 ready for the Eisteddfod so ended up going to bed!
This week has been super happy! I have started driving lessons which has been so much fun, and I am enjoying it so much more than I thought I would! You can view all of my Happy Days Posts if you wish 🙂 To see what we have been doing each week to make us happy 🙂
And off we go…
Wow week 5 already I can’t believe how quickly this year is going. I am loving looking at everybody’s posts for Living Arrows , not only do I get to see how each child or family are developing but also get to know people and get to know things that I wouldn’t even think to ask. The blogging community is amazing (so far 😉 ) and I love Living Arrows for linking so many blogs with one main focus.
This week has been pretty good. It started with a horrible cough for me, but as parents we recover quickly, although I must have mentioned this cough so many times on the blog that people are getting fed up of reading it – but I get no sympathy at home so need to find it from somewhere. Since the weekend though things have been great, lots of walking and lots of fun!
This morning we decided that we would go for a walk through the park and onto the beach to get some pebbles that Harry could paint in the week and we could have a walk along the beach, little play on the park there then back home ready for Dan going to work.
So we walked there all excited to go and play in the sand and when we got there the tide was in 🙁 So we played on the little fitness park first, of course Daddy had to show them how 😉
