Beach Day

The week before half term we decided to ditch the home learning and all go for a walk to the beach, to get some fresh air. to clear are heads and hope the boys didn't moan as much as they did the last time I made them walk to the beach.

We weren't planning on staying long, but the beach was pretty empty, the sea was warm enough for me even to dip my toes in and the weather was amazing we decided to stay a while.

We hadn't really gone prepared enough, we packed one hand towel to dry feet off on the off chance they wanted to paddle, juice for the boys and a flask of coffee for Jon and I.

Once there, they practically dived in fully clothed straight away!
That one hand towel definitely hand its work cut out for it,

It was nice to see them away from their games and all having fun, there was no moaning or arguing and they all played nicely as brothers, they even all made sure Ru was safe and no one was being left out....even Noah cracked a few smiles, which doesn't happen very often at the moment.

Jon and I soaked up some rays and enjoyed our coffee and the view whilst the boys enjoyed themselves.
It was nice to have some peace and breathe in the sea air.
It really made me feel much better.

It was nice to see the beach empty and not over crowed like many photos I've seen on social media, though when we did eventually head back home, the beach was getting busier.

We've lived just up the road from this beach for nearly 4 years and I'm pretty sure this was the first time we'd spent half the day there as a whole family.
Usually we go for an hour tops or I tend to walk them there with friends to have an ice cream, so it was nice for all of us being there and playing as a family.

Once the weather picks back up we'll be heading back fully prepared with more towels and swim shorts a picnic and supplies to keep us busy.

As we headed home for lunch the local chip shop was doing takeaways, and nothing beats chip shop chips after a morning at the beach so we couldn't resist buying some to eat on the walk home!

Perfect way to end a perfect morning.

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…
