We have had a lovely week even though it has rained and rained. This week was a blank canvas as our usual classes and play groups were cancelled because of half term. Weeks like this are my favourite type, lazy mornings, late breakfasts, endless games at home and seeing friends and family without the need to dash and clock watch.
Today we have had a simple Saturday, no big plans as such so it was great to spend the day together at home. Well half of it at least as the hubby headed to football this afternoon. So our simple Saturday went a little like this:
We started with a lazy morning breakfast and showered and at Little Mr’s request time to just play. We set up and played with his Fireman Sam village which is one of his favourite toys at the minute.
Over the last couple of weeks I have really been overwhelmed by the generosity of our friends and family. My Little Mr has really been spoilt rotten for his birthday. It may have been a week ago now but he is still receiving gifts now. One of my oldest and best friend popped round with yet more presents for the little man. We don’t get to see each other as often now and with children on the scene a night our for dinner and drinks is long over due but hopefully it will happen again soon!!
We love taking Little Mr to the local farm and took him numerous times over last Spring & Summer. We usually go to the local farm which includes all the general petting farm animals, along with play equipment and the cafe too. However we are fortunate enough that my best friends new Beau works on his parents farm so when we recently visited we were lucky enough to go to the farm too.
Little Mr’s favourite part of the day was definitely visiting the tractors. He was a little perturbed that they didn’t own a green one at first (we are having a few colour selection issues at the moment). However was overjoyed when we reminded him his favourite colour is red and they had a big red one. Little Mr was overjoyed at being ables to sit in the tractors and even ‘drive’ one too.
In attempt to remember all of the small things that make a happy family we are going to make a record of them here. We will include a picture and a short caption with each. Short and sweet.
Recently we had some visitors for a play date. One of my oldest friends from university and her little girl. It’s not often we get to meet up as we live over 70 miles apart but it is always lovely when we do. It’s great to see our children play together – very different to our party hard university days.
