Bed less 13/365

I’m getting a new bed at the end of the week and so that means the old one had to go, so I am now faced with a week on the mattress on the floor!

Memories. 12/365

OK this may be a strange picture to post but it holds a lot of memories.

Today I bought a jigsaw and went round to my parents to borrow their jigsaw board. Its no ordinary jigsaw board, it was a child gate at my grandparents house and is older than me. I remember it being used across the bedroom door when I stayed there as a child. Its also covered in graffiti by my mum, aunty and uncle! It really does remind me of childhood days and family!! Amazing how such a plain object means so much more!

Reading 10/365

When H started school in September I was as little shocked to be told she wouldn’t be bringing home any books for a while. At a meeting parents were told all about Read Write Inc, the scheme they use to tech kids phonics, reading and writing. Unlike other schemes, the school championed the system as it teaches kids all three skills at the same time. I will admit I was dubious but H has loved the way of learning and today brought home her first reading book which she read with no problem. I remember with B the whole learning to read thing was a hard slog for me as well as her and so far we’re have had none of that with H.

This is her eagerly reading me her book for the second time tonight!

Passports and curry. 7/365

This morning we went to our local photographer to get the girls passport photos taken ready for our holiday to Eurodisney in the summer. To say they are excited is an understatement!! The rest of the day was all about getting ready for back to school and work tomorrow with a curry for tea. Its the first curry H has had and the first move away from a korma for B, I’ll have them eating madras in no time!

Fantastic finale 6/365

Today we took the girls to meet Mr K’s family for the first time. It was a brilliant day starting with lunch out then back to their house for an hour. H and Mr K’s niece hit it off and entertained us all afternoon! The visit ended with lots of stickers and cuddles!

image

H decided to stick her stickers all up her arm and only removed them after the hour drive home!!

On the down side we came home without Mr K, as he is back at work tomorrow so we are now back to just seeing him at weekends! Its all worth it though, I love my family!

Perfect Saturday 5/365

Today has been one of those perfect family days. Housework, kids playing out, swimming this afternoon and TV! Nothing special but with not a single tantrum from H and minimal attitude from B, I’m a happy mummy.

Here’s B chilling out watching old school CITV today with delights such as Fun House, Teabag and Children’s Ward!
