Seriously how cool does my little chick look?! Love her.
Returned home and then both kids got sick through the night – thank goodness this didn’t happen in the tent!
My birthday wasn’t the best I’ve had – both kiddies still sick and Jon working but two of my most lovely friends dropped off my presents – fab jewellery!
And here is Beau modelling it all for me!
Wedding at work on Friday – I had to stay home with my sick babies and my sick self since they have kindly passed it on to me!
Everyone seemed much brighter on Saturday so I took them out for the day and it was such a beautiful afternoon. Unlike Sunday which was decidedly autumnal so we headed to soft play. This particular soft play was 4 stories of doom with monster children flying around at high speed. To battle The Hunger Games my two teamed up and I couldn’t have been prouder if Beau, she kept Wyn with her and they played together beautifully. When we came outside the weather had changed and we enjoyed a lovely stroll along the prom.
Our children are so cute sometimes, snuggled up together and on other occasions I can see their horns!
Have given this coffee machine a new home since it’s services are no longer required at the hotel – lucky us!
This little boy was wiped out and had a snooze on Granny’s sofa. At the time I was thinking he was about to get sick but we were spared this time!
We decided it was time for the little man to graduate to the cot bed. He looks so cute in his tiny bed – I also love that he comes into our room in the morning and tells me “out bed”.
Wedding preparations all day Friday – the bride made hundreds of little cranes. They looked fab hanging in the garden.
The weather on Saturday was superb and the wedding was lovely. We are so lucky to play such an important role in someone’s wedding. Job satisfaction – tick.
Sunday afternoon was family time spent in the garden and going for a bike ride in the village. Beau snapped this picture with my phone whilst Jon was taking photos of her. Like the filter she chose too!
Day 43 – the start of a week full of fabulous ladies. My mother is away for the week so I have no additional help with the children so I have had a week as a stay at home mum. Although that doesn’t actually reflect what we did! I drove the children up to my best friend in Leamington Spa on Sunday night after we finished staff training. On Monday a third pal arrived with her two children. The chosen wine glasses came after a discussion regarding crystal and size – we were pretty pleased with our decision!
Day 44 – half term is never the time to go for a day out if you have pre-schoolers and this can be avoided however we had a great day and Wyn had me pushing him on the swing for an eternity!
Day 45 – the drive home with two zonked out children, followed by a dash to the supermarket to restock the fridge and approximately five loads of laundry.
Day 46 – we missed Elspeth’s 4th birthday party because Beau was poorly however we had a lovely after with The Grays in their new home making and then eating fairy cakes.
Day 47 – my little Wyn’s face is returning to normal – still loads of marks on his little body.
Day 48 – we had a wedding at the hotel on Saturday and part of their decorations included to books like this with the pages folded to create words. I’m sure it’s a Pinterest moment!
Day 49 – the second birthday party of the weekend. Yesterday’s was held on a wood and some lovely friends adopted my two and took them when I was working. Today’s party had a truly splendid face painter and bubble man – he had the kids inside bubbles! The theme was pirates and princesses – Beau did not need any encouragement to put on her fairy princess clothes!
What a week of highs and lows!
Monday saw us up near Bath on a Best Western training course called ‘The Personality Experience’. It was an intensive two and a half days but it was so worthwhile – really looking forward to passing it on to our staff.
After the course finished on Tuesday we drove to the New Forrest and stopped overnight there. The sheep slowed our journey a little!
At dinner Jon had arranged for roses to be on our table – we will both be working Valentines. The flowers still look beautiful now – lucky me!
On Thursday Wyn and I had curry for dinner – I am proud to say he was a big fan!
I had a lovely glass of wine on Friday – Beau came over to me and told me it was wine made from turtles! This was followed by another sleepless night thanks to Wyn – I had noticed the first spot on Friday so I needed the wine!
Saturday he had half a million spots – you should see him now poor love. They are in his eyes, mouth, all over his torso and in places little boys don’t need spots!
We had a wedding open afternoon at the hotel on Sunday (my mum looked after Wyn and Beau came to work with us). It is always so lovely to see the hotel set up wedding ready and be able to chat to the couples who come to look around. We have some great local suppliers who help us to dress the hotel and then are there to pass on their wisdom too.
So an inspiring week to start, with a touch of romance ending with a very poorly boy and a tired mummy.
