What a wonderful month March has been! It doesn’t matter which month Easter falls in whether its March or April we always have a busy time as it’s a 4 day bank holiday weekend. We’ve really made the most of this Easter weekend especially as the weather on Good Friday was glorious where we were (No coats people, no coats!) We spent Friday at Chatsworth house in Derbyshire doing an egg hunt and Easter filled activities plus they have a lovely farm to walk round so K really enjoyed doing that. Not to mention that Chatsworth House is on stunning grounds so you could spend the day literally walking round them. Saturday was a swimming day. D is FINALLY starting to enjoy swimming now and lasted much longer than the 7 minutes he’s previously lasted (Hurrah!) It helped that I ran to the shops on Saturday morning to buy an inflatable chair for him to sit in the water with so I think it made him feel more secure. Why I haven’t bought him one of those chairs before now I’ll never know as we got K one when she first started swimming at 8 weeks old!! Oh well, he has it now and loves it. Sunday was the busiest day as we had all our family round for food and drink. There were 15 of us (18 if you include little ones!!) so it was a hectic day but it really was lovely to catch up with family. If your anything like us, it takes a military operation to get us all together at one time as we all have super busy schedules but usually special occasions tend to bring us together. K was exhausted by the time everyone left as she had been running round so giddy all day. Monday ended up being a bit of a chill day as the weather was cold and gloomy. If any of you saw my Instagram you will have seen that I queued for an hour and 10 minutes at our local shopping centre so K could meet and greet Bing and Flopp from Cbeebies (Yes, you heard right – 1hr and 10 minutes!! Madness, I know) She was so happy about it though and I guess it was better than a morning in front of the TV. The afternoon dried up a bit but was still really cold and windy but we managed to go to one of our local parks where our picture was taken this month. Literally the quickest photo I have ever taken on a tripod as 1. it was absolutely freezing and windy 2. it had started to rain and 3. D was furious that I had got him out of his warm pram just so I could take a photo and was about to cry. (never work with children or animals)
It’s so nice that we can say that spring is finally here. It’s such a wonderful time when all our surroundings are waking up from the winter months and new animals are being born. It’s officially a good bye to the winter gloomy weather. The clocks going forward means that the nights are lighter and the mornings are lighter. It also means it’s one step closer to summer time. Hurrah!
This month we are loving…
Park trips after tea time
New animals being born and living close by to see them
