Thursdays are the only day that I have all day to spend with the girls. In the mornings we go to a playgroup at a local church near Nana Cez. This afternoon we decided to go to the park that I used to go to as a child. Now it’s been at least 20 years (and the rest I hear Sara whisper!) since I played there but it brought back plenty of happy memories especially going back with my mum and sister.
Miss C, Miss E and Master T were really excited when we said we were going to the park.
Here are a few photos of them having fun unfortunately Miss E fell asleep on the way there.
Even Nana Cez had a go on the heltersceltor!
Not forgetting Miss E who was fast asleep.
Miss C is 4 now and off to big school in September so we are trying to teach her new skills!
This evening she decided that she wanted to help mummy and lay the table.
She did a good job and will be laying the table every meal time!
Way to go Miss C
I remember a couple of years ago one of my sisters telling me that someone she worked with knew immediately that she was pregnant. HOW? Well because she couldn’t stand the smell of her husband! Yes, each time she got pregnant there was no need for a pregnancy test; just the sheer stink of her husband confirmed her pregnancy to her. Now her husband didn’t actually smell at all, it was just her own sense of smell had became so heightened that she found him somewhat stinky.
I have found this myself; my husband too becomes incredibly stinky to me when I’m pregnant. He is ok as long has he has no deodorant or aftershave on! So basically he has decided it is better that one person suffers with his smell (me) than the rest of the population by not using the stated products. Even his hair wax turns me over.
In my first pregnancy I had to ban him from wearing one aftershave it smelt so sickly to me it actually made me vomit a couple of times. Still to this day he can’t wear it.
Mind you I am better this time round with aftershave smells, however prior to 22 weeks pregnant these smells were still a bit over bearing.
BUT…. I still have serious problem with the smell of garlic. If my husband has been eating garlic it seems to stick to him as though he has rolled in it. As well as suffering tears at my cousins wedding because of the dinner incident! (Read why am I crying?) I also found it very difficult to stand too close to my husband because he stank of garlic! I kept asking my sister if she thought he stank, but she said no. Maybe she was being nice! I think not though as the smell of my dad and also my 92 year old granddad sent me walking out of the middle of my cousin’s civil ceremony. I think she would have preferred this than saying her nuptials to the sounds of a heaving me!
I find it very difficult to sort out my 2 year old son if he has done a poo! The smell turns me right over and on occasion has had my running to the little girl’s room. We had one incident where I actually had to call my husband home from work (he only works round the corner to where we live, and for himself, so this isn’t as dramatic as it seems) George had decided not only to do a poo on the floor but also to roll over it a couple of times with his ride on fire engine for good measure. Chris (my husband) actually had to use a spade to remove the poo from the carpet and it took two days and using my mum’s carpet cleaning machine to get the stink out of the carpet. Where was I? With my head down the toilet!
Is it just me that is really excited to hear whether she has had her baby girl today?
I have been checking the news all day on the web but can’t seem to find out anything. I understand that she is having the baby in the US so maybe the time difference is the reason,
I just want to say good luck to the Beckhams and hope you enjoy your little girl as much as your three gorgeous boys.
I hope they get peace and quite from the paps so that they have lovely family time together.
Every Sunday Caitlyn and Ellie go swimming. Today Caitlyn went to see the preview of Cars 2 with Gizmodad so Ellie and I went swimming but walked there through the park.
I felt as though I was on holiday, the sun was shining the birds were singing and there was a lovely perfume of flowers.
Walking through the park was lovely as we didn’t meet a soul until we reached the boating lake, when we finally passed people they all said hello and smiled at us, which is rather unusual. We reached the other end of the park and we could hear drums, to my surprise there was a marching band practising their music – I didn’t know Hornchurch or Havering had a marching band so we sat and watched them for a little while.
We were quite early to our swimming lesson so we made a pitt stop at the swings which Ellie loved.
We then went to our swimming lesson and I walked home while Ellie slept in the buggy.
Lovely morning had by all.
Today after dinner Caitlyn decided to have a sing song. We sang all the nursery rhymes we sing when we go to our local library.
I didn’t realise how many of the words she knew! She sang : The farmers in the den, wind the bobbin up, goldilocks, 2 little dickie birds and twinkle twinkle little star.
She sang them and did all the actions and was really please with herself. I just wish I had recorded it.
Instead here is a picture of my gorgeous singing girl
This video makes me smile every time I watch it
I was looking through my videos and wanted to share Caitlyn when she had just learnt to walk.
Caitlyn and Gizmodad really enjoy planting seeds, in the past couple of weeks they have grown sunflowers and tomato plants. They do really well on the window sill but as soon as we put them outside they die.
We have been given some runner beans to grow so I am hoping we will do better with these. Caitlyn loves watching the seeds grow so we have put them in a jar and hoping that they grow.
I will keep you posted on their growth and also put pictures up and hopefully we will have some to put into the ground and even grow runner beans!
