This week has been half term. We’ve had a couple of days out and about, but with the weather being a bit iffy, we’ve spent some time at home just playing with toys and watching films.
Today we stayed in and did some art. We decorated some paper with paint, and then turned them into Chinese New Year lanterns!
I’ve been trying to get a photo of Ben’s dimple for weeks – finally managed to get it!
Today we met my nan in Solihull for a coffee, and as usual the boys were spoiled! Harrison’s school shoes were starting to fall apart so he had some new ones from Marks and Spencers, and they both wanted a bright yellow raincoat! This carousel has been in Mell Square ever since I can remember, and the boys usually end up having a go on it.
It was a beautiful day today so we went for a walk into the Yew Tree, our local shopping area. Benjamin was starting to outgrow the carrycot on his pram, so this was his first outing in the actual seat. He seemed much happier, being slightly upright and able to see much more. We stopped off in one of the many charity shops, and the boys ended up with a new truck and some cars.
Today we went to the Thinktank Science Museum in Birmingham.It was a vile day – really wet and miserable, and the museum was so busy we could barely see anything, but it got us out of the house for a couple of hours. I love Harrison’s face in this picture!
Today we popped to Costa’s for a coffee with my mum and her friend. Harrison was sent a pair of Ralph Lauren jeans from House of Fraser to review (coming soon!), and when I looked at this photo of him modelling them like a moody teenager, I couldn’t believe how grown up he looked!
One of Harrison’s favourite games is ‘Policey men’. He chases Alex or Daddy room around the room and arrests them!
