Day 1 – January 1st and the Christmas tree came down and I spent a few hours rearranging the play room area and finding home for all the children’s new toys. This is half of the play room – I moved around all the bigger toys and created new home corners.
Day 2 – Fed up with Turkey, Mince Pies and Chocolate – lunch today was a nice change from the junk eaten over Christmas.
Day 3 – A Sunday dog walk with a difference, the Air Ambulance landed in the field near our house so we went to see it and the children watched it take off again.
Day 4 – A very tired girl was up a lot during the night coughing and really wasn’t feeling the back to school vibes today. She had to go but wasn’t happy about it.
Day 5 – A very exciting email arrived for me today – it was from Just Giving and was to congratulate me on being so successful in my fundraising for Cancer Research UK last year. I was thrilled and have to thank everyone who sponsored Emmy and I after we completed the Race For Life the day after losing my MIL, Emmy’s Nanny.
Day 6 – I snuck the children’s bedtime companions into the washing machine today while they were in school – it was a frantic rush to dry them before they returned home.
Day 7 – I spent a few hours this morning upcycling a plain white bedside unit for Harry’s Pirate themed bedroom. I painted the sides Blue and added this wonderful Pirate Wallpaper to the top and drawers. I am so pleased with the result. You can see how I made this here.
Day 8 – It’s almost party time! Emmy wants a party for her 6th birthday in February. I’ve hired a hall and her uncle who is a party entertainer will be doing a magic party for her. It was time to write the class invites – 40 of these now written to hand out at school.
Day 9 – We’re going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo. A fun filled day at London Zoo where I almost lost Emmy when this fierce Hippo thought it was lunch time.
