"I'm a big girl."

On Wednesday my little girl turns 3. Very exciting as since James birthday she knows birthdays mean a special day and cake. As she doesn't have friends as yet, we are doing a few different things.
Today Nanny and Grandad George visited and we had cake. Later Cat Grandma, Marley and Col Col came to play so we had more cake. Tomorrow we are heading to Wheelgate for a fun day out. On Wednesday their will be presents and more cake and Grandma and Grandad Terry are coming for tea.

Easter hols.

Well, as normal the holidays have flown by. Tomorrow James will be back at school and Penny is heading off to nursery for the morning. The house will seem very quiet all of a sudden.
Despite the chaos of Dad accident which upended our Easter plans, we have had a good time and fitted a lot in. The egg hunt at Frampton marsh, day out in Skegness and tractor driving and actifact finding at Dads being some of the highlight. At home we have have been map making, building, plaster Paris making, partying, baking, singing, putting on plays, model making, planting seeds, digging and tent making. We have completely forgot to do any reading for school, but never mind.
I'm going to miss having a full house of noise but looking forward to next weekend away and more adventures.

Tourist day

Today we ventured out to not so sunny Skeggy. Despite the weather we had a lovely time going round the amusements and on the rides. Penny loved the wheel ride, giggling away while she was going round. James liked the 2p machines collecting prizes and tickets. John and just liked being out as a family. Looking forward to sunny weather went we can get on the beach and make sandcastles.

Penny came screaming and running through, announcing we have a crocodile in the kitchen.
Me "It's a stick."
Penny "No, crocodile"
Me "No, it's a stick."
Penny "No scary crocodile."
Me "No, it's a stick, look." (Going to touch it)
Penny "NO NOT NOT,  it's asleep shhhh."

We now have a sleeping pet crocodile/stick we can't move or touch into the middle of our kitchen.

Easter Dramas

I love the holidays. I love having James back at home. So far we have been to the alloment twice. We have now planned potatoes and spring onions. Unfortunately, Dad has taken a tumble off a ladder in the shed while putting up a camera and has broken his shoulder. It should take 6 weeks to heal but he needs to rest it. Hopefully, he will have the sense to ask for help when  he need it and not struggle along like he normally does. I told him to wait till Friday and we would help him with the camera.
