Day One Hundred
Trying to catch a smile. He smiles a lot, but as soon as I whip out the camera it disappears. This is the best I have so far…..
Day Ninety Nine
We managed a trip to the park in the morning after the egg hunt around the house. I’d hoped to do it round the garden but the weather put paid to that. In the afternoon we stayed in and got crafty.
Day Ninety Seven
A local independent children’s shoe shop has opened up near us and today we went along to have a look. She tried on numerous pairs and under the encouragement of my Mother-in-law picked her favourite pair (silver and pink no less) these were also the most expensive, thankfully my MIL offered to pay! I tried to get her to get a nice green pair (green is my favourite colour) she looked cross and said ‘no, that’s your colour’.
There was a face painter in the shop, it was the first time my little girl had had her face painted. She was pleased with the results….. Very pretty :)
Day Ninety Six
We have the in-laws visiting, so we all went to Staunton Farm. This is the Gothic Library, it’s part of the old estate. We went in the greenhouse, the maze and my little girl enjoyed trying out the new indoor play area and I enjoyed a hot chocolate.
Day Ninety Five
I’m still trying to catch up, almost a week behind.
This was last week when I caught up with KJ, we had lunch at the Chinese tea bar in Fawcett Road. We ordered too much and I ordered something with way too much chilli in for me. Ooph.
KJ and I used to share a flat and then a house together. She used to feed me. Otherwise I would have lived on sandwiches and toast. My health suffered when she went on holiday. She makes a mean cod curry :)
Day Ninety Three
Sadly this was pretty much my day. Baby number 2 pukes a lot, on his clothes, my clothes, my other half’s clothes and the bed clothes. I spend much more time washing. Today was what my Mother would call a ‘good drying day’. How dreary.
Day Ninety One
Trying to play catch up again,
We had a lovely afternoon out at the farm, we almost didn’t make it due massive morning tantrums. But once we were there and she had a bucket of chicken feed, all was well with the world again.
Excellent, I’ve finally caught up.
Here is Seth at six weeks. He’s gone from a tiny little squish of a man to a little chunky with gorgeous chubby knees. He’s nearly 12lb already and is changing so fast.
I get lots of smiles and he’s a good happy little boy. Still doesn’t sleep well at night and I’m absolutely pooped, but he’s definitely worth it. If I could just keep him this small for a bit longer……
Day Eighty Nine
Right, I’m slowly catching up. This is yesterday’s picture.
Just before I had my little boy I started going to a crochet group that meets every Thursday morning. I had been wanting to learn for a while and had tried looking at books but found it difficult to get to grips with, without having anyone to ask questions.
The group is friendly and Seth and I go each week whilst my Daughter is in nursery. We are the youngest people there. They’re bunch fag smoking potty mouths, I like them.
I started wanting to learn to crochet after seeing a friends Daughter in a beautiful hat that a family member had made for her, I wanted to make hats too, I like hats.
A while ago I posted a grid that I was crocheting. It was to be the base to a ripple blanket I was doing. I finally finished the blanket yesterday, hurrah! It’s not really my cup of tea hence I didn’t protest when my Daughter commandeered it for her dolls, and cuddlies.
I have lots of plans for different blankets, cushions and of course some delightful hats. And more tea drinking in a Thursday morning with the crochet ladies :)
Day Eighty Eight
This is picture for Thursday, I’m taking the photos, I just seem unable to keep up with the posting. Life getting manic.
I had to take small man to the docs today. He has all of a sudden got a really bad case of cradle cap and his face was looking red and sore. The doctor confirmed that he has eczema on his face. I went to the chemist and there was a 20 minute wait so I had a stroll around the village through the church and grounds.
