Steam Trains, Pretty Dresses and Woodland walks.

Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2022, lets hope this year beats 2021 and life and can start getting back to normal.

I thought I'd share a few pictures from over the Christmas holiday, as I didn't blog much in December as we were just so busy.

We took the kids to the North Norfolk railway to go on the Santa express.
The boys all loved being on a proper steam train and having lunch onboard. 
Even Bea loved it. She sat at the window waving to everything and anything as we sped past.

The day was really set out well, and all the staff and entertainers were amazing.
Definitely one of our best Santa visits.

Can't beat a Christmas Pyjama photo in front of the tree, and this year we had a new addition! Now we have Bea, I think I'll be able to get away with doing this for even longer. Noah didn't even moan when he saw he had matching PJs with his brothers and was quite happy to get in on the photo, as long as he was holding Bea.

Our yearly Christmas PJ photo in front of the tree.

Bea wore some gorgeous dresses over the festive period, I still get over-excited when I go shopping for her. Girl clothes shopping is so much more exciting than boy clothes shopping and I'm sure I'll never get tired of it.

This lovely Boden dress was a Christmas present.

I am really loving Boden's selection of girl clothes at the moment, and I managed to snap a few things up in the boxing day sale. I went with the next size up so they'll be perfect for the summer.
One of the dresses I bought has tractors on the pockets! Just perfect for country living.

Last but not least this was from Monsoon.

We went on a lot of walks, thanks to living right beside a beautiful common where there are wild ponies and cattle.
The boys all love running around in the woods and finding sticks.
Then searching the common for the ponies.

The ponies may be wild but they are super friendly, and we love going to say hello.

On New Years Day we decided to plant a brand new tree in the garden to bring in the new year. 
I had recently bought a weeping Cherry blossom tree which is already about 7ft tall and I only paid £20 for it, a proper little bargain!
I cant wait to see it full of blossom.

Being a tree! 

Whilst in the garden I decided to cut back the roses and have a bit of a tidy up and I also found the first signs of life from the spring bulbs I planted back in September.

I am turning the garden into a cut flower garden and I can't wait to share it with you.
Also this week we should find out if we have an allotment.
I really hope we do as I have plans for new chickens and even a beehive!
