52 photos – week 31

Not my photo, but it’s the best one of the 2 boys from this week. Now that we live in Birmingham, Grandad has every excuse to buy the boys Birmingham City FC goodies, including these kids kits. A little big, but they’ll soon grow into them.

Book bed – wot so funee?

I’m sure there must have been more funees this week, but with everything going on with the new house and my business seems to be booming, I’m surprised I’ve had enough time to jot down any of them at all! For some reason, Andrew has been going on about playing with “fighting arrows” at Grandma and Pop’s house. I have

52 photos – week 23

We have a bit of a bench theme going on this week. Andrew was fascinated by the bar-stool-height bench that we found at the park the other day, and Joel poses with his broom in front of the garden bench – he loves to have a good sweep, even if there’s nothing in particular to sweep up, and in fact

Garden fun – #CountryKids

After quite a few weeks of blogging about our out and about adventures for Country Kids, I thought it would be good to do another garden fun post, especially because this week I have really appreciated the fact that we now have a garden (admittedly this particular one is temporary, but we do have one at our new house too).

52 photos – week 19

        A couple of snaps from the garden this week. Joel is determined to climb on any chair he can lay his hands on at the moment, so he needs extra close supervision out in the garden on the patio. As I wrote on Tuesday in this week’s wot so funee? post, Andrew loves wearing no clothes,

52 photos – week 13

Despite being not very well this week, we’ve had to get out and about even if in the garden or just down the road, because otherwise the boys (and I!) go insane inside the same four walls all the time. These pictures show them doing what they like best: getting wet and muddy! Oh and getting into mischief – Joel

Biting the hand that feeds you – wot so funee?

So far my wot so funee? posts have mainly featured Andrew, eldest brother of two. This week, a particular interaction between him and younger brother Joel made me laugh out loud, even though Andrew didn’t find it particularly funny. Like a nice and kind big brother, Andrew offered Joel a mini cheddar biscuit from his packet. That was cute. Then things

Winter garden fun – #CountryKids

There are many reasons why we are enjoying living at Granny and Grandad’s house temporarily. One of these is the fact that they have a nice garden with lots of space to play. Having come from a flat, though we were lucky enough to have almost sole use of the communal garden there, it’s a real luxury just to be able

In the garden – #CountryKids

In case you missed my recent posts, or haven’t seen me for a while, we’re in the process of moving from Cambridge to Birmingham. One of our reasons for moving to a more affordable city is that we can buy a house with a garden instead of our current flat. I would love to be able to open the back

Fun in the ‘garden’ with our Little Pals gardening set – #CountryKids

Before I knew I was pregnant with Andrew, we were looking to buy a flat in Cambridge. The week after we paid a reserve deposit on a newly built flat in a great location within walking distance from the city centre (about 30 minutes), a pregnancy test showed up positive. I’m not sure knowing this earlier would have affected our
