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


I love the size of Master R against these colourful windows. The picture was taken at the Ice Cream Farm near Chester. We had the whole of the Honeycomb Canyon, which is full of water and sand play, to ourselves!

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


It looks like Master R is poking the elephant in the bottom! We visited Chester Zoo again today, this time with one of Miss A's new school friends.

Me & Mine - September 2017

Sunday, 1 October 2017

Joining up with the Me and Mine Family Portrait Project with these photos of our family for September.



A rushed last-minute set of photos taken on the sofa. A bit different to our photos from last month but they'll have to do as we had a few good occasions when we should have taken photos but for one reason and another didn't.

September Highs:
  • - This month will be remembered as the one where Miss A started school. We're so proud of her. She's settling in well and we're all getting used to the new routine. It's nice to have some one-to-one time with Master R who doesn't seem to be missing his sister much but then he gets free reign of all the toys when she's at school!
  • - We started the month with a last-minute caravan holiday in Rhyl. It was just what we needed after the bad news of my change of treatment. We had such a great time. We were fortunate with the weather and spent a great day on the beach. The kids loved the evening entertainment at the holiday park. 
  • - Mr MoaB's nephew turned 30 this month so we went up and joined the family for a nice Birthday lunch. It's always hard to know how the kids are going to be for meals out but they were so well behaved. 
  • - We really enjoyed our visit to Chester Zoo last month that I decided to actually invest in an annual membership for the kids and I. So I took the kids on my own with the intention of only going for a few hours, but we ended up staying all day!
  • - When Mr MoaB's sisters' asked what I'd like for my Birthday back in July, I requested a child-free night away. We managed to organise it for this month so another weekend away. The kids stayed, one at each sister's house. Mr MoaB and I travelled to Wales and did the Zip World Caverns. It was a brilliant experience. We had booked a house to stay in through Airbnb and it was perfect for our night away - quirky but quaint. The kids had a great time with Mr MoaB's family including a visit to a farm. I think they were so busy that they didn't have time to miss us!
  • - We took advantage of the Heritage Open Days weekend and visited Norton Priory and Halton Castle. We bumped in to a friend there with her kids so spent the day with them. The kids had a great time exploring and especially watching the birds of prey display. 
  • - The kids and I discovered a new park - Wepre Park. After a great walk collecting lots of Autumnal 'treasures' for Miss A's first family challenge homework, we spent ages in the playground before the rain set in. 
  • - Miss A received her next badge at gym class. She's always so chuffed and does love to show off what she has learnt at home. 

September Lows:
  • - I had the first dose of my new treatment this month. Had a few dodgy days and was really worried that I wouldn't be able to enjoy our weekend away but thankfully I was ok and we had a brilliant time. 
  • - I'm still massively behind with blog posts. I'm so tired in the evening that I struggle to turn my computer on and write. Hopefully at some point I'll catch up on myself.

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


A photo of just me for a change! Yesterday Mr MoaB and I enjoyed some child-free time thanks to his sister's and we went to do the Zip World Caverns in Wales. I was so worried that I wouldn't have the stamina to do it with my health issues but I did it and loved it. It was a brilliant experience.

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


This gibbon came for a closer look at us rather than the other way around! Miss A was so excited when he swung up to the window!

We're hoping for lots more close encounters like this over the next few months as we've become members of Chester Zoo.

Siblings - September 2017

Friday, 15 September 2017

Joining up with The Siblings Project with these photos of Miss A and Master R. I didn't think I'd managed to get that many pictures of the two of them together this month, but I was wrong!

 

The most significant event this month has been Miss A starting school! These photos were taken on her first morning. How smart does she look in her uniform!?! I love Master R's face peering at her, taking in this new grown up sister! She's settling in so well and we're so proud of her. It's a bit of an emotional rollercoaster but it's still really early days and she always comes out at the end of the day with a big smile on her face. I'm enjoying some one-on-one time with Master R. He's not really missing his sister too much now she's at school. I think because he now gets to play with all her toys when she's not around (Sshhh! Don't tell her as I try to put them back where we found them!).




The weekend before Miss A started school, we booked a very last-minute weekend away to a caravan park in Rhyl. It was just what we all needed and we had so much fun. Luckily we had one good day of weather so we spent a long time on the beach and it was such fun seeing the kids splashing about together in the sea.

It already feels like the sunny days are behind us but this picture was taken out in the garden on one of the odd hot days we had. It's safe to say that Master R is now copying his sister's antics. You can see him watching her closely and then he'll be trying to do it himself. He's always watched his sister climbing on Daddy and now as soon as Mr MoaB sits on the floor, he's there jumping on him and then he's being squashed by both of them. I love watching them and hearing their laughter together.


When they're not behaving I sometimes feel like sending these two off to the circus but unfortunately I'm just not sure they've got the skills yet!!

We're settling in to the new routine and I'm starting to get used to just having one little person to take out to (and keep an eye on) playgroups etc. So far the signs are good that Miss A being at school each day isn't affecting their relationship. They've been so used to spending most of their time together. I love that as soon as Miss A sees Master R after school the first thing she does is give him a kiss and a cuddle. I hope that affection continues for a very long time.
