52 photos – week 20

Well this week’s photo is a little later than usual, but I thought it was worth the wait – to get one of the 2 boys dressed up smartly for their uncle and aunt’s wedding as page boys. It wasn’t easy to get good photos of them, and by the end of the main photos they were very cross if

52 photos – week 11

Despite the rainier weather this week, we’ve still been managing to play outside for some of most afternoons. One of Andrew’s favourite games to play is serving ice creams from his kitchen – he’ll stand behind it like this and shout loudly “Anybody want an ice cream?!” until I say which flavour I’d like, even though sometimes I say I’d

Awake – word of the week

After last week’s word of the week – shattered – I’m pleased to say that this week I’ve gone for: This describes me more than the boys, specially Joel. The good news is that he has been sleeping MUCH better since I blogged the last word of the week. This means that I have felt much more awake in the

52 photos – week 11

This week’s (slightly random) photo is of a scene that I encountered one afternoon when we were playing in the garden: Joel hugging Andrew whilst he sat on the potty! Joel is fascinated when Andrew sits on the potty, and Andrew had brought his potty outside so that he could do a wee without missing any of the outdoor fun. Initially

52 photos – week 10

How on earth did it get to be a 5th of the way through the year already?! This is week 10, and the photo is one I snapped quickly at the check out when shopping the other day, as both boys were getting impatient with queuing and I was trying to lighten the atmosphere by playing ‘boo’ from behind my

52 photos – week 9

Right, this week I’m on time with my photo post! Here’s a sneak preview of a post that I’ll write about our fun at Coombe park near Coventry this week. I thought this photo was one of the best from that day out, so I’m using this for this week’s photo post.

52 photos – week 8

Once again I’m posting this after the weekend, with no excuse other than I forgot to do it at the end of last week. But I think this action shot at the park yesterday was worth waiting for. All 3 boys having fun at the swings.

52 photos – week 7

Woops, I forgot to post these at the weekend! My mind has been on other things, and coupled with the fact that I’m getting little sleep with a teething toddler, it completely slipped my mind. Anyway, here are this week’s photos. As you can see, the theme is snakes – Joel hugging a fluffy one in the library (this is

52 photos – week 6

As it’s Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share these pictures of us sharing a heart biscuit lollipop the other day at the garden centre cafe with soft play that we like.    

52 photos – week 5

It’s a bit of a cheat from me this week because it wasn’t actually me who took this photo, but I thought it was a great one of the boys (with Grandad), so it deserves to be the photo for this week – thanks to Granny. As we’re soon to move to Birmingham, Grandad is very pleased that the boys
