My little garden buddy

 Lucy has been enjoying the sunshine and we are watching our garden grow

We planted a whole vegtable patch and popping up out the ground are lettuce,sweetcorn,tomatoes,spring onions,carrots and to add an oriental theme for daddy we planted some pak choi......its all growing and we cant wait to taste our crop.

Lucy has been a real help she is my little green fingered flower girl

Back in to the swing

 After a long easter break we are getting back in to the swing of the normal daily routine,no more pajama days and lazy mornings for a while yet
But we did manage to get in to the swing in another way and took the children for a game of crazy golf and enjoyed some sea side fun

golf was quite a pressure,we had a stack of people waiting in the queue behind us and Daniel insisted on getting each shot in to the hole,even it took 18 attempts,Lucy is being potty tained and asked for the toilet about 95 times and what with the fact that the golf course is surrounded by water I spent most of the time diverting Lucy away from water edge,and then Daniel landing his ball in said water.....i could feel the eyes of the impatient golfing queue rolling high in to their heads.......ahh well,they may become parents one day!!! They can wait,we had some fun to be had!











We followed our gold game swiftly by a bowling game



Our money got stuck in the meter and we had to wait about half an hour for happy Harry the maintenance man to come and fix us up to get started but he gave us some extra credit and Dan got stuck in


Of course we had to get in some serious sand play,the kids had more fun here than on any golf course or bowling alley,fun doesnt have to cost any more than a £2.00 pirate bucket and spade















And before we left a walk on the pier
Dan is looking grumpy here as he was denied more time on the rides.



lucy ended the day taking Noddy for a spin round the promenade

Spring Fling



As the title says,we attended the spring fling today,it was busy,crowded and there were plenty of queues,just to sit in a tractor for a few seconds and dont even mention the queue fot the hog roast..............................BUT we had a great time


Even Little Lucy who had to spend the most part in her pushchair as it was just so busy we would have lost her in a sea of wellingtons if she had been let out



She had her own special entertainment in the form of Daniel

Megan and Daniel learnt how to make ice cream,it was super tasty I have to say


And the hour queue for the tractor......well even that lived up to a little boys expactations

Lucy was a little confused by the toy pony,she liked the real one better.



And I got to take home a rather large beautiful bunch of daffodils.

Lazy us

We have been very lazy this holiday and some days have not even ventured out the house,staying in our pajamas,pillow fights in bed,surrounded by a sea of books and toys and extended lunchtimes just chatting round the table and its been great not to have to DO anything,just relax and enjoy the simple things and it has been just the therapy I needed to get my sleeping pattern back on track.......ohhh my sleep ,or lack of has been a bug bear of late but after this week of unwinding I am beggining to give in to a well earned rest




YET.......today the sun called us out to pick the daisys that are growing on the feild and soak up a little spring time........and the supermarket called to stock up the cupboards too........hmmm real life always gets in the way.

Thankyou sunshine

How funny in my last post I asked for a little bit of summer and Voila..........today we got a little taste of summer sun.

I met up with a friend today and we layed down a picnic blanket and watched our boys being boys and chatted the afternoon away in a band of glorious sunshine.

It was great to watch Lucy running around,with one shoe on one she off mostly and see the boys super sports tactics over a game of football

This is what I asked for and I am thankful that even if it rains again for the next few days that I had a little taste of what our summer may bring

Megan will be back in 2 days and I cant wait to see her again.........countdown to the return of my growing up girl



Super confident Lucy


Dan just loves to go so high,he could almost swing right over



Just loved watching the boys playing like this

A walk in th park

We were invited by Andrews sister for a picnic in the park,although a little chilly we had a lovely day and the children really enjoyed getting out in the fresh air
I am craving sunshine now and I am thinking of returning to this park in the knowledge that next time it WILL be sunny

I love the cozy winter months but its been such a long winter and I dont want wrapped up scarves,wellys and big chunky coats anymore...........hurry up open toed sandles,floaty cotton dresses,dirty kneed boys dressed in shorts,sun hats and sun cream and long lazy days spent jumping waves and sandy toes

Ahhhhhhh this seems a distant memory but for now here are some pictures of my wellied up,wrapped up children enjoying the fresh outdoors,whatever the weather

Happy easter

Today we needed to escape from our house of illness
It seems like one after the other we have all been poorly,and the latest victim has been Andrew,and we all know how bad a man is when he is ill.

I am done with sick children........and men!!! lets celebrate easter and thats just what we have done today

We all know the true meaning of easter and maybe it gets lost in a sea of chocolate easter eggs but today we are reminded of easters true meaning and as we watch the parade from the salvation army today I  feel blessed and happy to have my family near me and feel loved and happy and take a special moment to remember

We visited the french market with all its colour and drank in the smells from the fresh breads and garlic,and arrays of colourful crafts,the children took samples of different foods,some were met with distatse but an experience non the less




A visit to pret a manger is always a must and we even planted our own special pret a plant



Ending the day at the fair.
Andrew gave me a pound for Daniel to have a go on hook a duck.........he has lost touch with the cost of living as hook a duck is now £2.50!!!!!!!
Daniel was very happy with his win of a formula one racing car.......the wheels have already fallen off but its all got to be worth it just to celebrate our easter in our own special way



I actually love the word........hook a duck.......i say it many times a day in place of more colourful language...............ie,mummy drops something and now says.....(oh hook a duck) instead of........erm yeah you guessed it!!!!!
