It’s the holidays! Hurrah! Hubby is now off school for a whole six weeks, and I suppose I am too, really, although I don’t really think of myself as working even when I am teaching. I must admit it is nice to have the excuse of not being able to go to work, though!
I think hubby’s end of term frenzy rubbed off on Little M and I last week, as it felt really busy! We didn’t really do anything terribly exciting though, just a trip into Norwich with grandma and grandpa and a meet up with friends at the sensory room. Little M loves the sensory room, and we haven’t been since the babies were a few months old and not even really rolling! So it was really lovely to watch them explore now that they’re more mobile. Little M still loved the bubble tube though, so maybe things haven’t changed as much as I think!
This weekend we’ve felt in proper holiday mode and took a trip out to Barton Broad boardwalk on Saturday. It was nice and sunny, and the boardwalk was full of flowers, butterflies and dragonflies dancing around. Little M really enjoyed looking up into the trees and around at the different plants. She did lots of squeaking and pointing when we got to the viewing platform over the broad.
On Sunday we had a proper Sunday lunch, then in the evening I went out with the pregnancy yoga mums for dinner. It was the first time that we’ve ever been out either pregnant, or with the babies in tow, so there was a real sense of freedom around the table! It was lovely to be able to have a proper conversation, with eye contact, with each other! We’ll definitely have to do it again soon!
This week’s Living Arrows photograph is from Monday, when we had sunshine (remember that?! I’ve had hubby moaning that it’s ‘supposed to be the holidays’ through the drizzle all day today!). I filled Little M’s tuff spot with water and she had so much fun splashing away, with her toy frog.
I love this photograph because she looks like she’s having such a great time, and is of course absolutely soaked! Little M just loves going out in the garden and will point outside and squeak as soon as I open the French doors. Hopefully we’ll have lots more opportunities to get outside and play in the tuff spot this summer holiday – can someone send the sunshine back to Norfolk please? Thanks!
