This week we've been making the most of the spring sunshine and getting outdoors. We went to Camp Wilderness on Saturday and then on Tuesday attended toddler group where the mothers were all given a little pot of flowers. I chose these beautiful yellow ones to plant in the garden.
Then I headed to the playground with the girls and let them both slide and swing to their hearts content. Juggling two isn't always easy but we manage. Wednesday we attended another play group and we've been out in our own garden tidying the area and planting seeds.
With space week on CBeebies I decided to dig out the children’s books we had on the subject too. Both of these have been read during bedtime story hour on the television and I've read them again during the week.
We watched Martin Lewis the money show. I admit to feeling like the girl who haggled for the first time on the show and know for a fact I’d have to write everything out that I’d like to get across before attempting to talk to someone. I've visions of me saying something silly!
It’s always sad when people move on and you've enjoyed their company. This is so true of a lady I got to know through one of the toddler groups we attend during the week. She was their leader and with so much going on for her she has had to step down and now she has expressed that she will be moving away entirely as her husband changes his job too and is becoming ordained.
We've been making a lot of things this week from fires, clay animals and bracelets to a carrot patch in our garden. My husband and daughter had fun digging in the garden together before planting the carrot seeds.
We made sure to wear clothes we didn't mind getting dirty in over the weekend. This is the great thing about buying second hand now and again. I don’t care if the girls get filthy dirty. I just wish for them to have a great time all day every day.
Thank you to everyone who has been wishing me a speedy recovery. It really means a lot to me.
How has your week been?
