Our Weekend // 14th - 16th October

Our weekend started the moment the boys finished school.

We packed up the van and headed off to Mimi's and Mergies.

The boys were having a sleep over and Jon and I were off to Wembley arena to watch Seasick Steve.
It has been 10 years since he appeared on the Jools Holland show and this was his first big arena show.
Jon has been a fan of Seasick since day one so he always try's to make the gigs when they're in London.
Jon introduced me to him way back when we first meet and I've been a fan ever since,
we have even discussed having one of his songs as our first song as our wedding.

We had a great night but I wasn't really a fan of getting back to my mums at 1pm.
Thankfully none of the kids woke up when we rolled in and we were able to sleep till 7am.
Mum told me over coffee that Rupert didn't actually go to bed till midnight but the twins and Noah went at a decent time and were no problem at all.

After a massive breakfast and a lovely hot bath (for me) we got dressed and headed off to the local garden centre to let the boys have a run around and let off some steam before we headed off to Jon's parents.
It was also an opportunity to have some time with my mum.
We sat on the bench and watched the boys all pretend to be ninjas.

Rupert was rocking his new getup from Cribstar a cool Instagram shop.
The tee reads - Not Your Basic Toddler and it suits him right down to the ground.
I also wore my Mother Of Dragons which is also from Cribster.

Once back from the garden centre we got ready to head off to Nana's and Gramps house for our last dinner in their house.
They are off to Norfolk at the end of the month.
It was also Helen's birthday last week, so it was also to celebrate that too.
Ru actually sang 'Happy Birthday To Nana' in his own little way with out any prompt.

Sunday was a chill out at home day.
The rain stopped us from bundling the boys out so we decided to stay home, watch films and do some baking.

We had a some bananas that were perfect for a Banana Loaf, I found a Jamie Oliver recipe that didn't have any added sugar in.
Perfect I thought, shouldn't leave the boys bouncing off the walls.

I also attempted to make some bread, but that completely failed.

Ru's had a cough for a few days and yesterday it became really chesty, so I've booked him a doctors appointment for this afternoon to get it check out.
Whilst on the phone I booked the twins and Ru all in for their flu nasal spray.

The boys have a real thing for hot chocolate at the moment, so I went all out and got some whipped cream and marshmallows yesterday and treated them to this for pudding.
Rupert just ate the marshmallows and left the rest.
Jon was treated to one once he'd come back from walking the dog.

The twins and Noah all went to bed at normal time and Ru was up till 11ish.
He didn't cause too much havoc, which meant we could actually enjoy some TV.

I'm going to call the Health Visitor today to try and get her to come round so I can re discuss Ru's sleeping and eating habits.

What did you get up to at the weekend?

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
