Buttercups, Daisies & Sunshine

Hey guys well Spring finally is finally here! We have just had a really lovely walk in the evening spring, fresh air. There is just something about this time of year, being able to spend a lot more time outdoors and enjoying the good old British sunshine even if it isn’t that warm just yet.

I feel pretty lucky having the countryside on our doorstep, which does have its advantages, like today being able to go for a walk after school and watching the excitement on our daughters face as she runs around and picks Daisy’s and buttercups to pop in a little cup of water when she gets home. Just spending an hour being surrounded by nature, daffodils, the sound of the little stream at the bottom of the farmland and lambs in the distance is just bliss.

No more continuously popping the washing in the tumble dryer, on the radiator or anywhere it can go! Being able to sit in the garden or listen to Millie playing outside after school and on the weekends whilst I prepare our tea!

We have lots of Easter crafts to keep us busy over the half term and I am sure our house will be full of Easter eggs and me saying that I never want to eat chocolate again, until the next day that is. Its the one day where you don’t have to hide from your child(ren) to have a sneaky nibble of chocolate.

Sometimes its the little pleasures in life that are the most important!

Weekly Blog!

This week has been manic! I seem to of been here, there and everywhere! I’m looking forward to a much needed day to myself tomorrow. Im the person that sorts everyone making sure they are all organised which means I tend to neglect myself. I really do wish weekends were longer, there just isn’t enough time to fit everything in.

On Monday we had parents evening which went fantastic, unfortunately though we aren’t impressed with the teacher she has this year. Teachers are there to educate not put children down for forgetting to pop in the commas on their school work! It’s taken 7 months for this teacher to inform us, a letter home or a quick word at the end of the day would of been great.

We seem to of spent a lot of our time this weekend outdoors regardless of the weather. So after a busy week I just hope next week is a little less busy!

Weekdays and trying to persuade your child to get ready! 

Well i couldn’t of named this any better! But since it’s Monday tomorrow it got me thinking, Since my daughter has turned 7 I spend most of the morning saying get dressed, brush your teeth and wash your face and i don’t just say it the once, I should really just record my voice and play it every weekday. 

Then you have the sleeping in longer on a weekday and up as soon as it’s light on a weekend!! When she gets up to read a book or play with her shopkins it literally sounds like an interior wall is being knocked down!
