This is my favourite picture of this week for #MySundayPhoto.


It was taken this week on one of our morning dog walks. It might have been pouring with rain but Little Miss A still wanted to just have a sit!

Siblings - August 2016

Monday, 15 August 2016

Joining up with The Siblings Project with these photos of Little Miss A and Baby R.

It's been a difficult month but these two are keeping me going and I love watching their interactions. Little Miss A is being a brilliant big sister. She even tells me off when I forget to do something for Baby R such as put his sunshade on the car window!



I was taking pictures of Baby R for the Tommee Tippee #UltraGames campaign when Little Miss A came in (she was meant to be in bed) and wanted to get involved! Not sure Baby R was very impressed with her muscling in on his modelling gig!


Every morning when we bring Baby R down, Little Miss A asks if Baby R can sit next to her on the sofa and she can cuddle him. It's such a sweet time.

Sunday, 14 August 2016

This is my favourite picture of this week for #MySundayPhoto.


It was taken this week when Mr MoaB took his Mum and the children to Hughenden Manor. She tried really hard to get the sword out but it wasn't to be!

This is my favourite picture of this week for #MySundayPhoto.



Realised that there are so few pictures of just me with both the kids, so on our walk in Wendover Woods this morning I took this selfie.

Play in the Park 2016 - National Play Day

Wednesday, 3 August 2016

For the fourth year in a row, I took Little Miss A along to the Play in the Park event in Vale Park, Aylesbury. She always picks the same things to do and most of them are free (thankfully).

This year we went along with two other Mummies and their kids. As we entered the park we bought 2 tokens each as we thought they'd all want to have a go on the bouncy castle.

Our first stop was the large sand pit where Little Miss A built some large sandcastles and wanted her feet to be buried. It's so fun to chart the changes in Little Miss A with a photo in the sand pit each year!


The kids then made a beeline for the drumming area. They quickly found a spare drum each and were soon joining in.

We then couldn't stall them any longer and took them over to the bouncy castle. They should have gone on the small one for the under 5s but this was tiny and really wouldn't have been that much fun for them so we chose to put them on the bigger castle instead. Unfortunately half way through their turn the whole thing deflated so there was a bit of a delay whilst they sorted the problem out and got it back up. Luckily the kids waited patiently. The 5 minutes did seem to go very quickly so not the best value for money.

We bumped into another friend of ours which was a lovely surprise. The girls decided to run off together and headed straight for the drums again.



When Little Miss A starting flagging, it was time for an ice-cream and one final go on the drums before we headed home.

We are fortunate that this annual event is so local to us and that we have been able to go each year.

You can see more photos from our day at Play in the Park 2014 and Play in the Park 2015 here.

Me & Mine - July 2016

Tuesday, 2 August 2016

Joining up for with the Me and Mine Family Portrait Project with this photo of our little family for July.


It was taken at Waddesdon Manor (shame about the random person in the background, but never mind!). Baby R has changed so much in the last month. He's definitely losing his newborn looks. Little Miss A has a nice bloodied nose from falling over (typical that she did this on the day we wanted to take our family photo!).

So it has been another really tough month and I'm just about holding it all together. There's tougher times ahead in the next few weeks which I'm absolutely dreading. Thank goodness for my kids who are keeping me going and prevent me from spending too much time dwelling on things.


July Highs:
  • - Mr MoaB and I both celebrate our Birthday in July. Mr MoaB right at the beginning of the month and me on the 25th. Both have been very subdued this year with everything that is going on. Next year is my big 4-0 so it will be more of a celebration.
  • - We took Baby R swimming for the first time and it was a success! He didn't winge at all! It was lovely seeing him in the water with Little Miss A. I'm going to start lessons with him in September and I really hope he's as much of a water baby as his sister!
  • - We're really fortunate that there is a Roald Dahl Festival and Parade held in our local town each year. This year the theme was The BFG. Little Miss A really enjoyed watching the Parade and we did lots of themed activities. 
  • - Baby R had his first set of vaccinations. It's never nice letting someone stab needles into them but he was really brave and thankfully got over them pretty quickly. 
  • - Little Miss A had lots of fun at a pirate themed party for one of her friends. It was lovely to see her confidence around the other children she didn't know. 
  • - Little Miss A had lots of fun at a pirate themed party for one of her friends. It was lovely to see her confidence around the other children she didn't know. 
  • - Little Miss A had fun on a walk we took with friends at Coombe Hill.
  • - We had a lovely visit from some good friends. It was so nice that they came out of their way to visit us.  
  • - I took Little Miss A to a free event organised by AVDC. She'll tell you that the best bit was going on the bouncy castle 3 times!
  • - We finished the month off with a family visit to Waddesdon Manor. It was great to get out together. Little Miss A got to make some ice-cream as part of their school holiday activities. She also spent lots of time in the playground.
  • - We are now looking after my parent's dog - Sassy. It's strange having a dog again after our dog-sitting stint last year. Little Miss A is enjoying visiting the playground a lot more frequently again on our walks.
  • - We've had lots of fun in the garden particularly in the paddling pool during the heatwave. Let's hope the good weather continues into August.

This is my favourite picture of this week for #MySundayPhoto.


"Let's play running around!" This is Little Miss A's favourite game at the moment and she takes every opportunity to play it. Here she is with Daddy running around in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor.
