Another week has passed – 2015 needs to slow down a bit!

On Monday Beau has ballet, they are rehearsing for a big show next month – she’s going to be a bumble bee!
Tuesday night was girls night out, fab food, friends and a splosh or two of wine – yum!
Wednesday morning was spent with friends and the older ones dressed Wyn up as a merman – this child will have cracking 18th birthday pictures!
Thursday was Wyn’s first haircut and he seemed to be feeling the effect on Friday!
On Saturday I could resist this breakfast face!
Today Jon and I are off to Wales for a conference, Nana and Grandad are looking after the monkeys at home and I am typing this post from the hotel bar with a large glass of Sauvignon. Happy Sunday peeps!




Second full week of the project and it’s been a busy one – lots going on at the hotel and at home.

Day 12 – after a day at work some family time playing games whilst dinner was cooking.

Day 13 – Wyn had his first swimming class since the Christmas holidays. He has been doing Water Babies classes since he was 3 months old and he just loves every moment in the water.

Day 14 – toddler group, Beau’s swimming class – a day with my babies finished off by a lovely hug between them – melts my heart!

Day 15 – a full day working but had to start cooking once the kids were asleep – made a delish chilli with extra veggies and a stew as well.

Day 16 – a group of Americans were staying for a few days for a 70th birthday celebration. This wasn’t an ordinary 70th – it was bling, bold, black and gold and all the extras were requested at the last moment. We called on some great local suppliers and pulled it altogether complete with a pianist for mood music!

Day 17 – trying to spend that last Christmas voucher – no success but did manage a ride on the carrousel and the kids loved it. Couldn’t get Wyn to turn around for a photo he lived it so much!

Day 18 – been doing chores, playing with the kids and trying to drink this vast cup of tea for hours!

#365 the first full week

I have really enjoyed the first full week of the project – just hope I can keep it up for the rest of the year!

We were up visiting my in-laws for a late Christmas celebration which was lovely the children don’t get to see their auntie and uncles enough so it’s always really special. Taking Beau to the cinema was such a treat and we all loved the movie.

We came home again on Wednesday – my manicure was well overdue so that was mandatory on Thursday!

Saturday night was the last Christmas party of last year or the first one of this year – either way we had to dig the crackers and party boxes out of storage on Friday after having only just packed it all away.

We got a slow cooker for Christmas so I am all over Pinterest for recipes of the healthy variety – I have found some which whilst merely reading I can feel my arteries clogging up!

Today – a mooch around town with mum followed by bangers and mash for supper. Wyn’s favourite part was clearly pudding!
