Keeping Busy....

The week after my op I was kept pretty busy as my parents came to visit.
They brought along my two nieces, so we made sure every day we did something different.

The Friday before they came we went to Jon's parents and had our very first BBQ at their new house and then the boys all played in the pool and hot tub.


Saturday 

My parents arrived nice and early, so none of the day was wasted.
After breakfast we headed off to the woods.


It was nice to see the kids all getting on nicely.

]

They haven't seen each other in well over 9 months.
Noah and Isla have a great bond and I think that will be one which will stick forever.


The kids all had fun exploring the bog and looking for special feathers.
My dad ran circles around them trying to get his daily 10,000 steps in.


After the woodland walk, we headed off to a local pub for some food.
Luckily the pub had a lovely play area for the kids, which meant we could sit and enjoy some food and a glass of wine in peace.


Sunday.

We headed off to the local carnival & boot fair.
The kids all had a budget of £1 and they set to work finding something to buy.
Amazingly they all came away with something that they really wanted.

After a few goes on the bouncy castle we headed back home for some lunch before we went back.
Once home my dad got out the slip & slid he had hiding in the car.


After they were bored with the pool and their tummies full of pizza we headed back to the carnival to go on some more rides.

Rupert had his dreams come true by sitting in a real firetruck.
Every time we walk past the fire station I have to pick him up so he can look in the window at the trucks, so when he saw this sitting in the middle of the field he ran straight for it.


Monday.

We had planned to have a picnic down on the beach, but the weather wasn't looking great so we decided to head to Hunstanton's Sea Life Centre.

They all had fun seeing the different sea creatures and having the chance to hold some of them.
My favourites again were the gorgeous seals.





After we were finished at the Sea Life Centre we headed off for a spot of lunch and a nice glass of Blush Gin (children obviously had apple juice)


In the afternoon my mum and I sneaked out for a child free coffee to have a chat and we headed over to the Norfolk Lavender Farm which is across the road from me.

We had a look around the gift shop and then ordered up our coffee and cake.
I was very taken with the bright pink cake and when I was told it actually tasted like Watermelon I couldn't not order it.

Amazingly it tasted just like a watermelon flavoured jolly rancher.


To end their time here we bought a nice bottle of ròse to have with dinner.


It was nice to have mum here as it kept my mind off things but after she left I kinda got down in the dumps and haven't really done much since.

In the last few days I've focused my energy into getting my new venture off the ground.
Once it's up and running I'll be sharing it with you.
So stay tuned.

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!

Intuition razors are the first 3-in-1 razors to lather, shave and moisturise in one easy step, giving your skin that naturally healthy glow.

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…
