What we’ve been up to half term:-
The first Saturday of the weekend we went to nannies as usual then onto Moseley Old Hall Olivia made a broomstick and we had a woodland Autumn walk.
Sunday we waited in for our new washing machine so had a family craft day we all made something.
Monday Bren and I felt awful as we had conjunctivitis not nice, I thought it was just sore eyes but it made us feel quite poorly.
Tuesday we had a clear out of the craft desk and craft area making room for our new pets. I still have the craft but have moved it to our bedroom, I am lucky to have a big bedroom so it filled an empty space.
Wednesday we went to a garden centre in Staffordshire and met Becky, James and Emily, we had a lovely lunch I had cranberry and brie panini with the anticipation of Christmas. We looked around the vast display of Christmas items, The Gruffalo was wondering round with Halloween characters and Christmas to, they really had pulled all the stops out it was fantastic.
On the evening Rich and the kids carved pumpkins.
Thursday (Halloween) Bren and I had the spring cleaning in us so we got the steamer out had steamed half the kitchen along with the fridge and bathrooms, ready for the Christmas and the tree to go up in 4 weeks for advent, we really are counting down for Christmas. Bren made a Halloween cake we dont really celebrate it as such but go through the motions for the kids sake.
Friday we had Annabel round to play, we had lunch then we went to a garden centre looked around the fairy village, had cake and coffee or coke in their case, a very long look around the shop as they both had pocket money to spend, then back home, we dropped Annabel off on the way to do our food shop where Annabel wanted Olivia to stay and play we did our food shop picked Olivia up and had tea at 7pm. Separating the two of them was quite difficult.
Saturday TREAT DAY! Before going back to school we went to the Ascarium Sea life Centre Birmingham, it was fun we loved seeing the turtle Mo going over the top of the tunnel and were flabbergasted with his size, weighing 36 stone! The 4D cinema was brill, it reminded me of Disney, but a few young children got a bit scared, so I wouldn’t recommend it to children under 5.
Today we had thought of going to a local national trust but it has flooded after all the heavy rain we received the other day, the ones around us are flooded so we have decided to stay in today and have a craft day.
Then it will be back to school so I suppose I best start writing my Christmas list of who to buy for as I haven’t started yet.
I also can’t believe that a year today I brought my first car, technically it is my 3rd car as Rich gave me his mini as my first car for an 18th birthday present but the idea of driving terrified me and we sold it. Luna was my second car I had off nanny Jenny, but Cruz is the first car I personally brought with my own wages with some money towards it for my birthday off Richard, so I am so proud of him, he was 4 when I brought him.
So that’s it our half term is over and were ready to look forward to Christmas.
I hope you have all had a good week love Deb x
