Moving house part one ....

This evening we are moving in to Jon's parents. Our house is being completed on Friday but we thought it would be easier to be out the house before habd. Packers are coming in on Wednesday and taking our things into storage on Thursday. In the next few days we have our last chances to chuck away unwanted things and pack up things we want to pack.

Tidy and clean so the house is nice for the new owners.

Today my new best friends shall be my Hoover and vacuum pack bags 

Wish me luck as I just can't see the house being empty by Friday! 

London zoo 4-1-2015

A little while ago my mum decided she wanted to take Noah and his cousin Isla to London zoo ..... Little did she know everyone else wanted to go!
So me and my gang, mum and dad, kelly and the girls - (Isla and Esme) all headed towards the zoo on a cold Sunday morning!

Jon has never been to London zoo so he was pretty excited and the boys were extremely excited. 

The night before the twins were doing all their monkey expressions and Noah went on about how he really wanted to see a squid ..... Which I told him was unlikely as it wasn't an aquarium, didn't seem to stop his hopes lol! 

We all met at 11 by the gates, we drove, Kelly and the girls got the tube and mum and dad got the train and tube! 

Isla was the girl with the plans, pen and notepad in hand ready to list everything we had done and wanted to do!!! 

Everyone really wanted to see the Tigers 

and the twins wanted to see the giraffes (giraffes can't dance is one of their favourite books)

We went into the butterfly house and saw lots of beautiful butterflies. One even landed on the twins bobble hats! 

We saw the Penguins at penguin beach, one was rather noisey which made everyone laugh! 

We saw the gorillas, and the new baby gorilla .... Very sweet 

We all brought a picnic, so at lunch time we all sat down and tucked in. Hot coffees and teas for the grown ups as it was just so cold!  

We went to the Rainforest and saw lots more lovely animals there. One little chap even wanted his picture taken! 

We all had a fantastic day and all the kids enjoyed themselves! 

I Love London zoo and will definitely taking the boys back again and again! 

A few more snaps from the day 

I did my first back carry with Ru..which he seemed to enjoy

Flash back Friday 2-1-2015

I was going through my pictures the other day and tried to pick out my favourite photo from last year. It was tricky but in the end this one wins hands down....

Every summer since Noah was little I have been going to the lavender fields in Carshalton Surrey.  
This was one of those snap it quick before he sees me. 

My lovely alex having a moment
