Me & Mine - March 2017

Saturday, 1 April 2017

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

It's so hard to get a good picture of all of us together. Little Miss A is pulling a face which is pretty much the norm when we take these pictures and Baby R is more interested in what his sister is up to! Oh well, it shows the real us I suppose! Thanks to our friend for taking this.

March Highs:
  • - We took Little Miss A to a trampoline park for the first time this month. We tried the toddler trampolining session at Urban Air Cheshire and she had great fun! It was nice that I could join in with her and it wore me out! 
  • - A day out in Southport with some friends. Little Miss A loved the mini rides and particularly loved going on the carousel with her Daddy.
  • - We stayed up at Mr MoaB's Mum's after our day in Southport and then she'd arranged for lots of the Great Aunts & Uncles to visit. Most haven't had the chance to meet Baby R yet so it was nice for them all to have cuddles with him. 
  • - My brother and his wife came to stay for a couple of nights. It was really good to see them and catch-up. They were great babysitters giving Mr MoaB and I the chance to have a rare date night and looked after the kids whilst we were at the Cancer Centre for my chemo. 
  • - We took part in a soggy 'Giant Wiggle' sponsored walk for Action for Children. Unfortunately the weather put most people from the playgroup off, but a few of us had fun.
  • - Little Miss A enjoyed a Pyjama day at nursery and then both kids wore red to nursery for Comic Relief.
  • - I got really spoilt on Mother's Day and we had a low-key but lovely family day together.  
  • - We've explored a few new places and found some playgrounds - which we'll definitely be revisiting now that the weather is improving. 
  • - The month ended on a real high as it was Little Miss A's 4th Birthday. She spent the morning at nursery and loved taking a cake in to share with her friends. Then we traveled up to have a party for her with Mr MoaB's family. She'd chosen a Charlie & Lola theme so I'd made lots of decorations for her. It was a lovely party. Can't believe she's now 4 and will be going to school soon.

March Lows:
  • - Unfortunately the month started with me being in hospital again with sepsis. Exactly the same as last month - I had to stay in for 2 nights. 
  • - Another round of chemo - the end is in sight. 
  • - I had quite an emotional day when Mr MoaB and I went down to my parents house for the last time as it has been sold. Even though I never lived there, it holds so many memories. 
  • - Mr MoaB's Mum had a major operation so we've been thinking of her lots. She's doing ok so we're hoping she'll be out of hospital soon. One of the major advantages to our move up North is to be closer to Mr MoaB's family and so he's been able to visit every few days which just wouldn't have been possible before.

  1. What a lovely photo of you all, it sounds like you have had a pretty busy month.

    1. Thanks Stacey. I always look at the diary at the start of every month and think the month will be quieter, and then it soon gets busy!

  2. Hehe Miss A puling a face made me smile. And it doesn't feel like it's been 4 years since we met and our babies we're tiny and new. I can't believe Ethan is nearly 4 too! Have a lovely April. xxx

    1. I know. They were so tiny when we met and now look at them! It's fun seeing them grow up!

  3. So sorry to hear you started the month in hospital again. Hopefully this month will be a better one. Glad to hear that Little Miss A had a lovely birthday and wishing Mr MoaB's mum a speedy recovery. I love the photo of you all - it's so hard to get photos where everyone's looking at the camera and small children are not very co-operative on that front, are they?! :-) #meandmineproject

    1. The harder you try to get a good photo of you all, the more Little Miss A decides to pull a funny face or decides she doesn't want to be in it! Sometimes you just have to go with a dodgy pic!

  4. Sorry to hear you haven't had a great start to march bless you. HOpe April is a solid nicer month for you. Lovely family snaps that you have documented here though it's the little memories that are the best ones to capture and savor. My kids are never coorperative when family snaps are needed hahahah #meandmineproject

    1. You wouldn't know that from looking at your pics Jenny! I'm hoping it might get slightly easier as they get a bit older, but maybe they'll just be harder as the kids will be even less co-operative!
