I also seem to have lost some days.
So, here's a load of photos which sum up January, so far...
Tuesday: (Yes, Sunday and Monday went awol, who can blame them?- for info, on the Sunday, it was my first time leading the older group at Sunday School, I have reframed my new favourite saying at work to meet the outcome "It was what it was". Monday, I had a fantastic day, my first flexi-day. It would seem I reinforced this by not taking photos). And so on Tuesday, I found a way to get names onto the badges I had made, and felt proud.
Thursday: Mr J's birthday. Our meal out was gatecrashed. Their relationship perfectly unique.
Well, I found something to meet the first part of the brief!
I was amazed by how different the boys took to the task.
And was more amazed by whom painted which.
Saturday: Mr J is joining is the Team Honk relay, so we were over the moon when Joker's Masquerade agreed to send an outfit for our week's activities!
Sunday: We all (eventually) managed to make our way to the park. And when I eventually turned up this is how the boys were enjoying their time. As I type this, I wonder how to describe who we bumped into, I would describe them as friends, which means I now have friends we've made as a result of being parents. I will have to think on that.
But anyway, two wonderful boys turned two a week before Tom & Seb's birthday. And they generously let Tom & Seb have the most fun on their birthday gift.
Monday: it seems was 'Bob the Builder' day. Bad mummy missed the memo. This is how they spent their afternoon, as they fixed anything (which they broke first). Lego is a safe option on these days I have learned.
Team Honk Relay Baton from Sunday.
Saturday, I went on a fantastic puppetry course (blog post to follow). I bonded with this puppet so she ended up becoming my newest baby. I need to decide on a name, I have one in mind but Seren wants to name her 'Isabella Grace'.
|And I think, in the footsteps of my favourite story teller, she will be named Matilda.|
