Spent a nice relaxing Bank Holiday weekend at home. As much as I like to get out and about, sometimes there’s nothing better than just lounging around and relaxing.
My first picture this week is of Lily. On Sunday we received an Amazon delivery with some things she’d spent her birthday money on. She was so excited, especially as Megan had upset her the day before by refusing to play with her and I had offered an hour or so on Sunday to play instead. Lily and I were watching OUAT when the dolls arrived and Lily unpacked them all and faced them towards the iPad to watch with us!
On Sunday we also went out swimming. It was something I had promised to do during Easter and with decorating and illness, we just never got around to it. So on our last day together, we headed out to swimming and as an extra treat I bought the girls lunch at the cafe there too. Megan had a cheese, tuna and mayo panini and for the first time, managed it all!
This week the girls did a bit of modeling ;)
Lily got a new dress from TK Maxx and I caught this beautiful pose of her coming down the stairs.
Then Megan tried some actual modeling, for a project we wanted to do. She was a bit stiff and uptight but we did catch some lovely ones – including this which I caught when she was laughing.
This week’s picture is from the last day of term. It’s become a sort of tradition to end term by heading to Pizza Hut as a family. Luckily Chris was off for a week or so at the same time and so we were all able to go. Lily was feeling very loving for some reason and I snapped this great picture of the girls.
This week’s picture is from school disco night. For the first time ever, the girls can attend the same half of the disco, both being in Keystage 2. This meant we had plenty of time to head home, get dinner and get changed, before heading out to take them for 6.45pm. Chris and I went to the pub for a drink during the hour we had to kill and it was really nice.
This week Amy and Liv came to visit for a few days and we crammed a belated Galentine’s Day, Amy’s birthday and Easter, all into the three days they were here. Our belated Galentine’s was on Tuesday and as a surprise I booked (and paid for) a meal for all my favourite girlies, plus I got everyone a little gift and some sweets. This picture was taken at lunch time in Prezzo, while we waited for food!
