Summer holidays are the best!

I am so lucky, I now only work during term time. So I get to have 5 whole weeks off with my 3 little rascals!

We are a little over half way in and we have had some lovely days. We have been to some workshops that have been either free or rather cheap at local places. Today was pirate Lego making. 

I took Marley and my nephew, Cole along with my partner and his son. They are all similar ages so was a good boys day which promoted working as a team as well as individual little projects. The boys all seemed to really enjoy it! 

We have also been to messy play workshops where the children have potato printed onto material and then turned the material into little bags! Such a sweet idea. 

It’s been so nice to see the older girls enjoy the little things and being creative and silly again. School really does seem to have an effect on them which makes them act older than their years. Now I feel like I have children again instead of mini teenagers, I definatly have to keep on top of the activities that keep them creative and young. 



Get better soon buddy..

Today all plans have gone out the window. 2.30am a sickness bug came over our home and struck down Marley. To be fair its only his second sickness bug in his 6.5 years on this planet so on the scale of things weve been lucky. 

As we all know, with sickness comes a 48hour restiction. For Marley this means no christmas dinner and no party day. And we may have to give the christmas fayre a miss tonight too.

For me this means i now only have 1 child free morning to finish christmas shopping, wrapping, a food shop and all the other day to day stuff before i head to work and then on the school run for the end of term and the hyperactiveness, bickering and fighting starts with just small moments of peace and quiet breaking up the day. 

Need to get list writing and new plan making ready for when my boy is back on his feet. 

Get better soon buddy.
