Phew what a busy week!
Being half term and having to work mon – wed put me in a right downer of a mood. I felt so guilty having to leave, Zachy especially, in childcare and was determined to make the most of our days together so here goes:
Out & About
On Thursday we got up early and jumped on a train to London. We were off to Hamleys for a blogger event to look at a new kids bathtime range: Kids Stuff Crazy range.
It really is a crazy fun range! They have all sorts from foaming soap to colour changing bubble bath with finger puppet toppers and loads of cool gift packs including monkey sponges, bath crayons, mirrors and books all for use in the bath. I can’t wait for these to arrive and will write up a full post about these once we have had a crazy bath 🙂 The team are lovely and have really put a lot of thought and research into how to make bathtime fun for the little monkeys and are keen to share ways for this to happen if your child isn’t keen on it.
Zach had a whale (!!! sorry!!! ) of a time, he got his face painted as a tiger and got stuck into the foam soap which smells gorgeous and can be moulded into all sorts of shapes:
After this we went down to the Tower of London to see the poppies, although it was super busy it was very moving and Zach really understood what they represented which was nice. He ended up with 2 poppies and a poppy band 🙂
Obviously Friday was all about Halloween and after a busy morning visit from a play mate where they made bats and pumpkins (later these went in the window) we went to the local church party which was entitled the Brave and the Bold so didn’t celebrate Halloween for obvious reasons! Lots of fun was had here with cress head making, games and tea and on the way home we did a little bit of trick and treating, first time for Zachy so he was sooo excited when he got a sweet at each house!
Fun at Home
From the aforementioned bat and pumpkin making we also had some yummy sit down all together dinners this weekend that doesn’t happen during the week, Flo is doing really well and eats what we all have and its so nice to put her in a booster rather than in her highchair so she can join in. They both had some great play time with the Early Learning Centre house which shows what a great range their Happyland stuff is for across a range of ages.
Time for me/My happiest Moment/This week
I managed to veg out on Saturday and Sunday evening with a bottle of wine and X Factor. This week I really want to make more time for my blogging. A great start to that this morning as I’ve just found out that I’ve won a ticket to Blogfest this weekend! Woohoo! I’m so excited to see all the speakers, learn lots and meet lots of you guys there so pleeeeease give me a shout as a I’m a bit nervous being a newbie 🙂
Look forward to filling you all in soon…
