A lot of schools were back in this week but as we finished later than most we’ve also had this week off so today is the last day of our Easter break. I’m always a little bit sad when the holidays are over but even more so today. Maybe it’s the age that O is at which has made him so much fun for the past two weeks, maybe it’s helped that the weather has (for the most part) been lovely or maybe that it’s because I know I’m heading back to a crazy half term. We really have had a wonderful Easter break and I have loved spending so much time with O, and I think he’s quite liked it too.
Yesterday was the day the primary school places came out. We are a year away from this but as the past 12 months have flown by it will be here before I know it and the thought of my son being ready for school makes me want to weep. Two lovely posts that I read yesterday were Brummy Mummy’s So It Looks Like You’re Off To School which made me want to cry and MummyDaddyMe’s We Didn’t Get The School We Wanted. She wrote beautifully about her disappointment at getting their third choice school for their gorgeous girl.
Last weekend we headed off to Wales to my parents caravan house (as O calls it). On site there is a little swimming pool which we always take O in. Usually it is really quiet and on Monday we had the pool to ourselves. I don’t take O swimming (naughty mummy) but he does love the water and his confidence is really starting to grow which was lovely to watch. He had such a great time that I took him to our local pool for their Ducklings session yesterday and have booked us in again for next Thursday. They have a 10am session which ties in perfectly with getting to preschool for 12.
I’ve been listening to a lot of Taylor Swift this week. The lady can write a catchy tune, even if O shouts at me to “Stop Singing!”
Eek, struggling a bit with this one this week. We have been having a bit of a chilled week so not too much making going on. I did make hubby and I meatballs for dinner last Friday. They’re an Ainsley Harriet recipe and are one of my all time favourites.
I also made a purchase of a new phone app for editing photos, PicTapGo. I love it and in just a few days I’ve had my £1.49 moneys worth.
My new jacket that I am reviewing for Trespass. I’m not normally an outdoor attire kinda girl but I really love this coat and it was really put to the test in a very wet and windy Wales on Sunday.
Cuffed Jeans – again something I’ve not really been a fan of before but they are so comfy and practical when running around after a three year old but don’t make me look like a total slob. I may have bought a second pair too.
We had such a lovely weekend in Wales (despite the weather), sometimes it is so nice to get away from it all. We would have stayed longer but the in-laws were going on holiday and wanted to see O before they left. I’ll leave you with a few of my fave pics from the Caravan House. Have a lovely week.
