{The Me and Mine Project} 2016 May

May, you took a looonnnggg time to arrive as after booking our Summer holiday back at the start of the year we have been counting down the days! A whole week away in Spain, close to Barcelona, with plenty of sunshine and beach time. Just what we all needed, a week away from the hum drum of work, pre-school and house work! I managed to go on a hen do and be child free (for almost) a whole day. Potty training has also been on all our minds this month and hopefully we have pretty much cracked it! (phew)

Our photo this month had to be on holiday and I absolutely love these, we all look so happy and relaxed and the blue flowers look beautiful. We took this late one afternoon when we visited some pretty gardens up on the cliff top, it was just very relaxing and we found a beach cove we could see over the cliff that we visited the next day, a little gem!







I am loving this month: sunny day adventures, a whole week away as a family, eating buffet breakfast for a whole week, our new camera, wearing flip flops everyday, finding out my friend is pregnant, going to Creative Caterpillars every week with little D, feeling proud of D’s potty training achievements.

Mr H is Loving: basking in the sunshine at home & on holiday, messing around with snapchat filters, buying little D toys as rewards, finally getting a chance to read a book (well… half a book) on holiday, wearing shorts all the time, not wearing socks….

Little D is loving: ย swimming in her new float jacket, eating bucket loads of ice-cream, getting stickers for potty training, reading Sally and the Limpet, wearing sandals everyday, playing in the garden lots, eating lots of raisins, making sand castles at the beach.

Litte F is loving: any toys with wheels to spin, eating EVERYTHING, trying to commando crawl backwards, being tickled behind the knees and toes, standing and giggling with Daddy, shouting very loud, clicking his tongue especially when enjoying his food!

{The Ordinary Moments}#21 โ€˜An extraordinary week in Spainโ€™

My last week’s ordinary moments are going up a little late this week as we have had an amazing week away in sunny Spain and as anyone with young children knows the washing mountain and tired children that have unfortunately come back with us have needed lots of time and attention!

Mr H and I usually go on one sunny holiday a year, its definitely become a annual event for us and we decided to continue it (albeit the things we get up to have dramatically changed… much less beer/cocktail drinking / dancing and adventures ) but we have taken D away before twice and this year off we went with a twoligan and 8 month old on an aeroplane. I’m not going to lie, its not the smoothest thing, dragging children out of bed in the middle of the night, driving for 2 hours, taking them along with 5 billion bags /cots /pushchairs /carseats but it is OH SO worth it. A whole week of pure fun time with ice cream included with every meal!

So here are the holiday extraORDINARY photos…P5182140.jpg

Such a great time in the sunshine, making the best memories full of smiles, ice cream, swimming pools and beaches..
