Me & Mine - November 2017

Thursday, 30 November 2017

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

Our first festive photo of 2017 when we met Father Christmas at a local Christmas Fair. Master R isn't quite sure yet what to make of the man in red!

This one with The Gruffalo was taken at the start of the month by my brother on a lovely walk in Delamere Forest. We didn't realise Miss A was pulling a funny face until we looked back later! She's so cheeky!

November Highs:
  • - A big highlight of this month was seeing some of my family and us all staying in a house for the weekend together. My brother, sister-in-law, niece and her boyfriend came up to Chester and we had such a fab time catching up.
  • - The month began with the rest of half term. We visited the World Museum in Liverpool with Mr MoaB's sister and her kids. It's been a long time since we've been to a Museum. Wasn't sure how Master R would be as he wasn't that well all week but he actually seemed to enjoy running around the place! Bit disappointed by the Planetarium Show but other than that we had a great day exploring all the different exhibits. 
  • - Miss A got to try roller skating for the first time at a free local Roller Disco and Laser Light Display event. She got the hang of it really quickly and it's definitely something I'd like to do again with her. The laser light display was fun too!
  • - Another first this month for Miss A was going to a fireworks display. Previously we've just watched a few fireworks from the window, but this year I took her with my brother and sister-in-law to a local display. I was a bit worried she might not like the noise but she loved it! 
  • - Whilst my family were up we went for a wander around Chester including the Cathedral and walking round part of the walls. It's such a nice town to be able to take people to.
  • - Miss A went to her school disco with lots of dancing and some party games. I was helping at the event and must admit the noise level was so high but the kids all had a great time!
  • - Mr MoaB's Mum came to stay for a few days and we took Master R to Grosvenor Garden Centre to see the Christmas decorations. The had some singing reindeer heads which were great fun. Lost count of the number of times we watched them! 
  • - Both the kids supported Children in Need - Miss A had a Silly Hat Day at school and Master R wore fancy dress to nursery. 
  • - Mr MoaB and I have finally got around to making some firm plans for our wedding (we've been engaged since 2012). We've now booked our wedding venue and the Registrars. So we're all set for September 2018!
  • - As part of the Frodsham Christmas Festival, Miss A got to ride on the school float which was themed on 'When Santa Got Stuck in the Chimney'. She sings the song all the time now!
  • - Miss A achieved her next level of badge at her Gym Stars gymnastics class. 
  • - Master R's vocabulary seems to have come on leaps and bounds over the last few weeks. He has so many more words and is trying to say lots more. It's so fab to hear. 

November Lows:
  • - My third stay in hospital of the year. This time due to a chest infection. Thankfully it wasn't sepsis. Meant that my treatment had to be delayed by a week but when I had it, it all went fine. 
  • - I still have so many blots posts unwritten and in drafts. I am struggling to know where to start to get the blog up-to-date but my plan is to try get them all written so that my blog stays as a record for the kids to look back on.
