What a gorgeous week, filled with precious family time, lots of sunshine and E for emotion. As we come to the end of the week Lil G and I are completely excited for the holidays. So many of his plans hinge on the sun shining so for now I just have my fingers and toes crossed that this blooming lovely weather we have been blessed with hangs around for a little longer.
One summers day in July, temperatures rising, the sun shining brightly through my office window, I found my thoughts turning to clocking off time. It isn’t often that the sun shines, or that I get to run out of the office at finishing time but as I left Lil G that morning I made a pinky promise with my boy, and I was determined to keep it. As Mr H was off to play football that night I had a master plan, we were going to have a Teddy Bears picnic in our garden, something Lil G loves to do but sadly they are often indoors due to the weather. I was planning on surprising him with not just any old picnic, it was going to be a BBQ in picnic style with hot dogs and toasted marshmallows, his favourites.
And relax. What a week and can I just say, what is happening with the blooming weather? I just want to wear my sandals and summer dresses but honestly I think the weatherman is against me. It’s been a long week at the office, my first official week stepping into my new role and what with my training in the evening, blogging, being a mummy and of course trying not to fail at being a wife I am looking forward to our Friday night chill. I don’t know about you but I am dreaming of long summer days, a little BBQ in the garden with my boys and the start of the summer holidays.
There are days like today when I sneak out of bed a little earlier than necessary, bleary eyed and tip toe along the landing in fear of touching the floor board that creaks just outside Lil G’s bedroom. Ever so quietly get myself ready for the working day, all set to leave the house whilst my gorgeous boy sleeps. There are days like today when I don’t get to enjoy the sleepy head snuggles with Lil G or even to catch a glimpse of him before I leave in fear of waking him. Instead I spend the following 10 working hours day dreaming about the moment when I see my boy next. When I get to scoop him up at care club and hold him so tight that he wriggles free whispering you’re squeezing me too tight mummy. Oops. (more…)
And so, the big day came and went, in a flash of the camera my boy was all grown up. One minute he was four years old in the middle of his reception year at School, the next he was turning a whopping five years old, coming to the end of his first school year and having a flip-tastic birthday party. After months of building up to the day, choosing what to do, which way to go, how to celebrate and whether to have a party with his friends or not we decided to go for a Flip Out birthday party. And boy did they have fun. We have been flipping out at the new facility in Stone for a few months now and so we knew what to expect in terms of the activity and as Lil G had mastered some of the flips and tricks he was desperate to show his little friends.
