It’s been a rather exciting and busy time since I last blogged. It snowed, actual real snow that the kids could play out in, the sort of snow that made us decide not to travel but to stay home and have snowball fights and hot chocolate.
I really regretted not buying the kids any waterproof trousers or the sled we’d seen in Asda the day before. I had explained to Annie that it probably wouldn’t snow and if it did it would only be a dusting which wouldn’t warrant a sled – how wrong I was!
When we weren’t out in the Narnia-esque back garden we were playing inside. Jon wrapped my birthday presents and the kids went crazy with the packing paper. They wrapped each other up, threw it around, chased it and hid under it, who knew brown paper could be so much fun?
In addition to that excitement I celebrated my birthday in a lovely relaxing way with the family. There are no photos of my ‘big day’ apart from a blurry one on Annie’s camera and that’s good with me.
It was nice and quiet, we stayed local, Annie went swimming while the 3 of us mooched around town, I treated myself a paper trimmer, we shared a Happy Meal (Annie’s 1st one) for lunch, we watched a movie and then in the evening Jon cooked a gorgeous dinner and we watched The Great British Bake Off.
I got lots of lovely books and Jon and the kids bought me all the Project Life bits I’ll need for the year, I even got to finish my first 3 weeks as the photos arrived with perfect timing.
We will be seeing my family at the weekend for more birthday fun and then next week we’re heading off to ‘the big city’ to wander around the shops and eat in my favourite restaurant. I maintain though, that until we all the activities have been done and the presents unwrapped it is still technically my birthday, so on we roll with my big birthday, day two…!
How was your weekend, did you get any snow?>
