A lovely week
We had vaguely planned to go to the Lake District this week during half term but, as our plans very vague, and the Other Half had to work it didn’t happen and I was slightly worried about how I’d entertain two kids for a whole week all by myself. Granted, the baby doesn’t really care what we do when we go out but the thought of juggling a baby who now wants to crawl everywhere, plus a 5 year old who wants to do something fun permanently was a bit daunting and I wasn’t too sure how to fill our days.
It turned out to be a fun filled week with walks out in the sunshine, trips to the cinema, trips to see grandma and grandad, trips to collect germs at soft play and trips to eat our favourite foods. Routine went flying out the window in about 2 nano seconds but the sunshine was just too lovely and it’s been odd to see it hang about the North for so long, whilst it’s rained in the South. Obviously, I’m not complaining. By Friday we were a bit exhausted by all the fun and ended up having a very lazy day just lounging about in the garden and later lounging about in our favourite fish and chip restaurant. We need to get back on track with routine rather quickly now and I can’t believe we’re now entering the last long stretch of school before the summer holidays start. I am so looking forward to those 6 weeks. I have no clue how to entertain two kids for that long but there will be a fair amount of “winging it”. We’re also driving up to Scotland in August and I cannot wait. Hurry up holidays!
