I think I need a new title for this series..it’s always more than a week! Anyway, the last time I did one of these posts was 14th June, and so much has happened since then!
A few weeks ago, the boys made these cute little flower key holders from Baker Ross. My dad came round and loved them, and asked if he could have one for their house. They stuck it up using Sugru, and it looks great!
I (without the kids and Graham!) went to the wedding of some close family friends. My oldest brother was best man, and absolutely nailed his best man speech. He and the chief bridesmaid also surprised everyone and had us all in tears of laughter by doing a rap they had written about the newly married couple just after the speeches. It was brilliant. I love this photo of me with my youngest brother and his girlfriend. They are getting married next year, and I am so excited to be one of their bridesmaids!
The week after the wedding was BML16! I’ve written a post all about my weekend, which you can read here.
I had been really looking forward to my first lie in in five years when I went to London for BML16, so you can imagine how I was unimpressed I was by being woken up at 5am by the fire alarm and having to evacuate the hotel!
Last Thursday, Alex had his nursery induction. He is going to the one at Harrison’s school, and his key worker is one that I know well from working there. She is absolutely lovely, and Alex loved it. In fact, he had a strop on the way home because he wanted to stay. He can’t wait to go to ‘big boy school’ in September.
I realised a couple of weeks ago that I had just one, really rubbish photo of me with the boys. I needed one for a magazine article that we are going to be in (eek!) so I got Graham to take one for us. It’s not perfect, but I love it!
On Sunday we went to a huge car boot sale, and picked up these for 50p each, as well as lots of hot wheels type cars for only 10p each. The boys were given £5 each to spend, and they had to ask how much things were and give the correct money – a little maths lesson as well as some fun!
Harrison really enjoyed playing the time game that we bought at the car boot sale, and asked if we could do some clock work. He got o’clock straight away. I was really proud of him because time is a really difficult concept for children – I’ve taught 10 years old who struggled with it, so I was over the moon. He was really proud of himself as well, and took it into school to show his teachers.
So there is our week and a bit (ok, two weeks and a bit!) on Instagram. How was yours?
