Our Weekend // 8th - 9th October

This weekend was slightly more interesting than last.

Noah had a birthday party to attend, and whilst he was there having fun we took the other three boys to Pizza Hut for an early lunch.



Noah had a great time and even though its lovely seeing him making some really nice friends its heart-breaking knowing that in a few weeks he'll be leaving them behind as we head off to Norfolk!

Once home I decided to do some baking with the twins, I wanted to spend some one on one time with each of them, so they both made something different.



We were sent some cake boxes from www.bakewithlilianddex.co.uk*
Cake kits perfect for kids.


All the dry ingredients all measured out for you in one box, all you need to do is add butter and mix.
They were just perfect for a rainy day activity.
Alex made the Hairy Hedgehogs and Oscar made the Spooky Spiders.

They turned out amazing and something ill be buying in the future.
They put the store bought cake kits to shame!
You're doing real baking with out half the hassle!

In the evening we had a mum from school - Shelly (www.facebook.com/stomainateacup) whose little boy Tate is in the same class as the twins come over with her kids and partner for dinner.


We all had pizza and then whilst the kids played we sat and chilled out in the lounge.
It was nice to have other adults round, to have some normal conversation with.
Jon doesn't really like to socialize much (he's a proper hermit) but he even enjoyed himself and got on really well with both Shell and James.

On Sunday we went off to find a new park to let the boys run off some steam .... though saying that they didn't have much steam as they were all up till past 11 Saturday evening., and walk Ray.




He still cant walk to far without his wound opening up again, So whilst Jon did a quick lap the boys tried out all the different climbing frames and slides.
We then went on a hunt in the woods to find some things to make an autumnal collage for the twins homework.




I finished up the day by ironing all the boys uniform and chilling out with a cup of coffee.
Noah went off with Mia from over the road to the arcades down in Leysdown with her mum and dad.

What did you get up to over the weekend?

I'm pretty excited that I've been invited along to take part in the semi finals over in Orpington this coming Friday.
I don't think there's anything more entertaining than a good board game.

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…
