Party time!

One of the little boys at a playgroup we go to was having a party today which we went along to!  It was really good, it was in a softplay centre so loads of room for them all to run around in!  As usual Caitlin went round and round and down the slide…


Then it was time for party food.  The food was vegetarian so was great for Caitlin…. They had a big plate of chopped veg and another of chopped fruit which she could have any of.  There was cucumber sandwiches and hummus ones too which had a bit of marg on but I let her have those as I’m sure she’ll be ok with that amount of milk.  Also there was potato wedges which she could have!  Noah was fascinated by the balloons that had floated to the ceiling!!


After the food there was time for a bit more playing before we were thrown out on the dot of the party finish time!  In fact that was the only bad bit of the party really…..

Competition crazy!

I have been looking for crafty blogs as I am really stuck on what to put on my Christmas cards…  My last 3 years have been really good (I think) so I want something really unusual to continue with…..  And I found another competition so thought I’d enter….

Keep your fingers crossed for me….

Christmas Markets….

There are so many brilliant things in the Christmas Markets and it seems to get bigger every year.  There was a great felted stall, I’ll have to look up how to do felting later….  Caitlin and E seemed to really like it there, they had lots of hats and bags etc although the bags were Caitlin’s favourite.  They were all really brightly coloured.


There is also a post box that goes directly to Father Christmas so we’ll be writing a letter to him tomorrow and we can take it back next week….  We also had a dance with Father Christmas and his worm??!!  Noah was amazed by the worm and his glasses!!


Caitlin also liked the worm…


These were just by the portaloo’s which amazed me they were proper single cubicle ones and but they had little radiators in them and so were lovely and warm!!!!!!!!  Still a bit stinky and cramped but warm!!!

Thank you Nan!!

Our postie has just been with a parcel for Caitlin and Noah….they got to work straight away opening it….


Inside was an advent calendar and a really cool miniature Christmas tree….


And so we made it and now its sat on our fireplace!!  I know its a tiny bit early for Christmas trees but I’ve been dying to put ours up for ages!!  I’m very close to finishing my shopping and I can’t wait to wrap them all and put them under the tree although I have a feeling I may need to take them back from under the tree once a certain little Noah spies them……  Here they both are with the finished tree.  Caitlin has very wild hair in the morning, I might try to get a better picture tomorrow.  We’re off out to the Christmas Markets today and then I have my first Christmas do outing to Chiquitos!!!


So Happy Christmas everyone…only 27 days to go!!  Hopefully Richard will find out his shifts soon so we can make plans and get really excited!!!!!!

Swimming and playgroup.

Today Noah has been swimming!!  He had a good time and loved running around in the showers afterwards…  While him and Richard were there, me and Caitlin went to playgroup.  I got to talk to loads of people, normally I’m running round making sure they are both ok either playing in the ball pool which is in a different room, or making sure they’re not destroying the creative table!!  Today Caitlin made 2 Christmas decorations which loked really good. 

Tonight they have managed to finish off making their Christmas cards so I just need to add the finishing touches and then get them both to “write” them…..

Off to the zeeum!

Richard asked Caitlin where she wanted to go today…Manchester Museum or the Transport Museum.  She chose Manchester Zeeum!  So off we went….  Noah loved the animals, but was convinced that every skeleton we saw was a dinosaur!  He knows loads of the animals in his book as I said the other day, but he also recognised the stuffed versions which was good as it means he does actually know what an Eagle looks like not just recognising its place in the book…


Caitlin jumped a mile when the frog in the picture jumped forward towards the glass….


Caitlin also loved all the animals and mummy’s etc but the thing she seemed most amazed by was a bus passing the window to which she shouted “wow a bus”!!!!!
