I have been much quieter than normal and I’m blaming the summer holidays. Although I am loving all the time I’m spending with the kids I do actually miss blogging, reading other posts and commenting. I miss my little routine but come September I’m going to have a lot more time on my hands than normal.
I won’t go into every little thing that has happened so far this holiday as I think it would be a few pages long. I’ll just share some of my favourite parts.
Last week we had a play date with a friend and her children. We met Bex from DillyDrops
at the nearby park to let the kids have a good play. Morgan used to go to the same school as Bex’s son and it was their friendship that bought us together as friends. We also realised how similar our situations were at the time and that seemed to help strengthen our relationship and helped us both deal with what we and the children were going through. When Morgan moved school it was lovely that we kept in contact.
Anyway we had a good catch up while the kids played. Sadly I didn’t get to stay as long as I would have liked as Abby had skipped her morning nap and was exhausted! She did have a nice time following the older children around. She just kept getting annoyed when she couldn’t do the same as them.
Last week I also passed my Theory Test. This may not be a big deal to some but I was so nervous. I had never done it before and I just didn’t know how it would go. It now means I can book my test which is still going to be a while, there is about a two month wait! I want it NOW! It’s so exciting, I just want to be able to drive and have my freedom and it’s just so close now.
We’ve also just spent a lot of time at home. Making dens and playing in our garden.
We are borrowing my brother in laws tent this next week and we are going the camp in the garden. The boys have given me a list of things I need to buy which mainly consists of marshmallows and sweets. We have baked pretty much every week of the holidays and I’m pretty sure the twins are going to be bakers when they are old. It is by far their favourite thing to do.
We have a visit to the dentist this afternoon. Morgan has a bad tooth. (Not from all the baking). It’s completely broke down the side. He broke it on the trampoline, the same trampoline he broke arm on. I swear he’s being banned for life from it. I can’t see the appointment going well and I think they will most likly remove it as it’s a baby tooth.
We’ve also been busy shopping for our first car. We’re looking for a 7 seater so choice is a little limited but there are a few we like. We are thinking we’re most likely to buy a Grand Scenic as they are the ones that fit best into what we need and also our budget. It’s all very exciting. It would be nice to be able to practice in the new car but we aren’t in a rush to buy.
Well that’s all I have time for! Abby has already woke from her nap so she’ll be grumpy later. I promise I’ll be around more now!
