This month has been a bit of a slog, I think reflecting on the last few months has made mr H and I realise that we really don’t enjoy this part of the year much, especially as the weather has been pretty crazy this month. This month also saw my return to work, and with little F being only 5 months its been pretty tough…its safe to say that we are ending February with a house that looks like a bomb hit!!! Our clean washing pile is not far off the ceiling…..
We went on a weekend adventure to Torquay living coasts in a bid to ignore and beat this winter weather, but we actually just ended up standing outside in what felt like a hurricane, wetter than the penguins we were trying to see, and trying to stop the baby from getting completely soaked. Admittedly little D thought it was a great adventure and was least fazed by the hurricane, but we were all pretty cold by lunchtime. I vividly remember trying to cross the road, Mr H pushing the double pushchair and me getting quite angry at him being so slow, and just hearing him shout ‘the rain cover is a saillllll’
We did have one brighter weekend, and took all our shiny new camera bits and bobs down to the Eden project again and make use of our locals pass. Little D thought the park and ride bus was the shizzle (easily pleased) and the tripod worked a treat. Mr H is not overly convinced about using a tripod in public…do we look like we are a bit crazy? Not sure, but also thinking I don’t care! Unfortunately I had a brain lapse and totally forgot how to use the remote in the 5 minute window that we needed it….lesson learned…but we got some pretty good shots….and little D was pretty star struck at meeting the REAL stickman!
I am loving this month: cold weather with lots of bobble hat wearing opportunities (my hat and little ones!) , mini eggs..especially the yellow and white ones why do they taste best?, dry shampoo still making sure I make it out the house everyday, listening to the random things that Little D comes out with now!
Mr H is loving: Mini Malteaser packets by the bucketload, watching the rugby (snippets when not dealing with small children!), being in a video at work (famous!), not driving to and from work in the dark
Little D is loving: dinosaurs rahhhhhhhh, reading Tiddler before bed, NOT going to bed well at night…hanging off the curtains in her room!, petit filous yoghurts by the bucketload, swimming with Mummy
Little F is loving: sleeping a little better at night (don’t want to jinx it!), rolling around all over the place, holding and playing with his Lamaze doll, swimming lessons with Mummy
