I can’t believe we are already half way through January already! This week has been a week of waiting around for buses and deliveries, playdates and getting lost in the cemetery.
I have a slight obsession with Yankee candles. I have lots of the mini ones in Christmassy scents, and my brothers both bought me big ones for Christmas (Strawberry Buttercream and Snowflake Cookie – LUSH!!), and I *may* have ordered the Sicilian Lemon one the other day – need to hope Graham doesn’t notice!!
We have to catch the bus to nursery. It is only about five stops and literally two or three minutes, but is just too far for Alex’s little legs at the moment – it takes me on my own half an hour to walk it! This makes it even more annoying on days like this when in 50 minutes only one bus came (this is apparently the longest and busiest bus route in Europe and buses should be every 7-9 minutes!), and that bus already had the maximum number of pushchairs on so we couldn’t get on! We use the time waiting for buses to practise counting the cars and name the colours!
I never thought the day would come when I got excited over a steam cleaner but it has! Since we moved into our new house back in October I’ve wanted one as we have laminate floors, and vinyl in the entrance hall, kitchen and bathroom. I finally got round to ordering it and was so excited to swish it round the rooms – makes life so much easier! Next job with it is to clean the oven!
My nan bought the boys a Peppa Pig workbook when we went to visit her the other day – they loved sitting and completing the activities.
After nursery today I took Harrison and Alex to their friends house for a playdate. The kids all played beautifully whilst us mums had a chat and drink. We missed the bus on the way home, so walked through the cemetery. It’s absolutely huge and so beautiful and peaceful, especially in the autumn and winter.
This little dude is seven weeks old today!
My favourite thing about our house is our beautiful fireplace and open fire. We lit it for the first time today (since have found out there are a million rules about what you can and can’t burn so probably the last!) but it looks so beautiful and cosy.
