'Branching Out' (6/365)
We visited a nearby National Trust property today and embarked (lol!) on a bug hunt which was a lot of fun but we all got very muddy! Afterwards Burton had a go at climbing trees (with help from Daddy) and enjoyed sitting on a branch like oo-oo (the monkey from Raa Raa The Noisy Lion)
'My Trolley Dolly' (7/365)
Granma took Burton to ladybirds and then she, Jenson and I popped to Tesco and then we went and had a drink in a coffee shop as we never got around to doing so before Christmas. This is a little tradition she and I started a few tears ago where we would always visit Costa every December to indulge in one of their hot drink specials, but December proved to be too busy for us to meet so we agreed we would make a date in the new year.
'Finding A Stone' (8/365)
Determined to continue my getting out every day resolution, the boys and I spent an hour playing outside in the garden this morning. Burton rode his bike and Jenson the ride on train as well as some falling over on the slippery decking! They also enjoyed finding stones!
Granma and cousin Ben came for the day and as it was dry the children played outside all morning, riding Burton's bike and scooter while Jenson discovered he was good at kicking the ball around from the front garden to the back garden! I think he enjoyed the fact that with Ben here, big brother didn't want to play with the ball! After lunch Granma and I took the boys on a little walk to see the diggers and crane at work as next to the holiday let some new houses are being built.
'My Sleeping Baby' (10/365)
This morning the boys and I, Jenson in the buggy and Burton on his scooter, made our way to the garden centre to meet with Granma and Gran for a drink and a 'mooch' about.
This afternoon a friend and her toddler popped round and Burton got a bit over excited (to put it mildly!) and was a bit of a handful! When they left Jenson fell asleep on me while Burton watched a new Scooby Doo (old skool ones) DVD.
'Hide And Peep-O' (11/365)
With OH back I had use of the car so after I dropped Burton off at Ladybirds, Jenson and I went and did the food shopping. When we got home Jenson enjoyed playing with me and having free reign of the house and the toys to himself!!
Tonight I went out for a delicious curry with some friends in Torrington - its been a year since I last had a night out (all 3 1/2 hours of it) with friends.
'Grown Again' (12/365)
We all popped into town this morning and I took the boys to get their feet measured and Burton was very excited to be allowed (at last!) to have them checked on the measuring machine! Both boys are going to need new shoes!
Rest of the day was wet and windy so not very exciting.
