Snow Fun

I thought I'd share some photos from the snow. We haven't really been up to much lately, so I don't have much to report. I have completed my first TMA and I'm about to send it off to be marked and the boys all had their first ever snow day!

I'm really enjoying having this as my view! Every time I come into the kitchen this is what I'm greeted with and it fills with me joy, I'll be sad once it all melts away. I'd love to live somewhere where it was constantly snowy.

... Cat Naps ...

Oh to be a cat!


... Beach Trips, Eye Tests and Rainbow Roses ...

Half term and another week off for the boys. We hadn't planned much for this week, seeing as we've only just come back off a holiday.
To kick start the half term we decided to head down to the beach and stretch our legs.

It was lovely as it was practically deserted and we had a nice stretch of beach all to ourselves.

The boys all had a good run around and we had fun writing our names in the sand.

The beach is definitely our happy place.

On Tuesday Jenny came to stay and the boys all had eye test. For Noah it was his second one and for the rest it was their first.
Noah and Oscar had perfect results.
Alex had to been booked in for another appointment as his results were a bit iffy, so he had to go back today and have some eye drops to enlarge his pupils so they could have a better look. Everything was fine and he doesn't need glasses which has upset him as he really wanted them!
Ru has to go to the eye hospital as he's developed a lazy eye.

Whilst we were busy in supers…

... Num Noms Pancake Day Fun! ...

We looooooove Pancake day in the Mini Beast house and were more than happy to team up with one of our favourites - Num Noms to have some NumNomtastic pancake day fun!
We were very Kindly sent some Pancake Day supplies along with Num Noms series 4 Deluxe Pack and Num Noms Mystery Pots

Ru adores his Num Noms collection and is always excited when he gets the chance to add to it. He does like the starter packs, but his favourites are the blind bags. The light ups and nail varnish Noms are his favourite!

Noah and I set about getting the pancakes cooked, I've never used a pre mixed pancake batter before and I was actually pleasantly surprised at how nice they were. Noah showed off by flipping every pancake before placing it onto the wood block.

Once the pancakes were all made we placed them on the table with an array of toppings. Then the competition was on ... who could made the nicest topping.

Alex opted for Lemon Juice, Chocolate spread and marshmallows.... I wasn't too keen on …

... Good Days ...

The last week has been a good one. Back from Centre Parcs I was ready to carry on at school and properly get into my studying. I cut down my hours so now instead of 3 full days I just do half days, so I can spend the rest of the day studying without the boys around. I'm already ahead.

The boys have gotten the bug for outdoor play again since being on holiday in the woods and every chance they get, they like to be in the garden....even Ru who usually doesn't go out unless its warm.

The twins have been learning about Space this half term and have been really enjoying it and really keen to do extra work at home. Last weekend they drew a poster of our solar system and then researched how many moons the different planets had.

I changed the top of the hallway table out and replaced an old lamp with some fresh flowers. It gives the hallway a fresh look and you really cannot go wrong with rainbow coloured tulips!

I've finished two units already and submitted a dummy TMA. After ha…
