After our big ikea order we still found ourselves going back on Saturday to get some more bits and bobs to add to our mountain goodies that is taking over ken and Helens dining room!
Noah made a special Burns night Pudding - cranachan as part of his follow a recipe homework!
He was very pleased with himself.
He's doing really well with his reading and even earned himself two house points for doing lots of reading during last week.
We have started reading Roald Dahls 'The Twits'
Noah is loving it and wants to finish it so we can move onto George's marvellous medicine!
The twins are missing nursery a lot, so I'm taking them to soft play twice a week to keep them busy and to just get them out of the house. It usually is lovely and we spend about 2 - 3 hours there, I usually treat them to lunch.
Today wasn't so great. The boys got pushed, pinched and kicked whilst the child's mother just looked on. The child wasn't just doing it to my boys, every other child ended up crying at one point because of said child.
We only stayed an hour as the boys got fed up and wanted to go.
Ru is rather snotty and cutting another two teeth, he doesn't know whether he is coming or going!
He turned 9 months on Sunday and he's already out growing out most of his 9-12 month clothing.
We have ordered him the next stage car seat!
He really isn't staying a baby *excuse me whilst I cry*
He can walk along holding on and is now able to balance alone, it really won't be long till he's on the move unaided!
Fingers crossed we hear something about the house this week as I'm dying to set up the boys new rooms

A good sign of a great customer care is a 24/7 care service and yes you guessed it over at woolovers that is what they offer you!
A little bit about this great company .....
"Started in 1989 from small beginnings, Wool Overs is now a world class knitwear retailer, supplying nearly 750,000 customers with men's and ladies classic and contemporary knitwear. We now have websites for the UK, Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand and two fully-translated versions for France and Russia - all helping to ensure we can spread our love of knitwear the world over!
We developed our business through meeting many of our customers at the various UK Equestrian and Country Shows. Our range of knitwear has now grown since those early days to over 160 styles available in 180 different colours and combinations, and is still very much the creation of our customer feedback. We are of the firm belief that successful ‘niche’ marketers need to develop specialist knowledge to enable them to go that extra mile, and we’ve been completely wrapped up in natural fibre knitwear for over 20 years now.
So, for lovers of Wool, Cotton & Cashmere knitwear, we think we’ve managed to create a rather special range that offers you amazing value, without compromising on quality. More importantly, we hope you feel the same! In association with the British Wool Board and Woolmark, we ensure that our woollen yarns are of the highest quality, and unlike most high street knitwear today, all of our styles are fully machine washable.
Today there is a greater need to use natural, renewable products. Wool fulfils this need, whilst also providing warm, stylish, and durable garments. We sincerely hope you find what you are looking for on this website, and that we provide you with the quality of knitwear product and level of service you expect".
They offer free delivery too, so really what are you waiting for! Go check it out for yourself!
They have a massive range of animals, soft toys and baby toys such as comforters, soothers, rattles, tail books and soft books.
The choice really is endless and you could find yourself browsing the pages for hours, I got lost in all the choice and wanted to buy every thing.
In the end I decided I liked the look of Ollie owl, so into my basket he went. A super quick checkout with the aid of PayPal and he was ours. The delivery took 2 days, so really a great service and I could have not asked for more!
My plan for master Ollie is to sleep with him myself for a few days so my smell transfers on to him, then place him with Ru and hopefully the coziness and my smell should comfort Ru and help him sleep until mummy's bedtime!
It hasn't been as awkward as I thought it would be, actually it has been really rather lovely!
The boys are loving being with their nana and gramps, I'm enjoying having yummy meals cooked for me ....... We have had a different meal every night! It's amazing.
Ken really loves his cooking and gets rather creative in the kitchen.
We have our own lounge, so the boys can't destroy the nice lounge and it keeps us from getting under each other's feet. Once the kids are in bed we then venture into the grown up lounge.
Today Jon and I will be signing the house contract and hopefully from Monday things will really get moving.
Our house was officially sold last Friday, it was odd as we drove past a few times and saw the new owners in there and it made us feel sad but after a few days we were over it and are looking forward to our new start.
Noah is feeling a bit on the low side as he is unsure when and whats going on. We keep reassuring him we won't just up and go, he'll have plenty of time to say goodbye to his friends. I'm also trying to sort out a few pen pals for him, so he can keep in touch with his friends and practise his handwriting at the same time!
The twins aren't too phased by what's going on. I think they just love the extra attention and hugs they get from nana and gramps.
