106 weeks and 6 days | Me and Mine {March}

What a brilliant, eventful month!

March has always been a good month for us as my boy celebrates his birthday but with the arrival of our little sons, we now have another TWO birthdays to look forward to!

It’s been such a lovely month too.

The spring flowers are out in the garden, we’ve had some better weather and the clocks have just gone forward! Hurrah to that. Altogether a recipe for happier times.

March saw us go to Bluestone, in Wales, for a little family holiday. We had such a brilliant time. The accommodation was fabulous and the amount of things to do for the Twinkles was really incredible! SO many good things to keep them — and us — entertained!

We also visited a fantastic zoo, whilst we were in Pembrokeshire, called Folly Farm. They’ve just won best day out in Wales — for 2015 — and I can absolutely see why. There is so much to do for little ones. The Twinkles had a ball playing with diggers and looking at the animals. I’ve started writing about our day out there but haven’t managed to finish it yet, so that will also be coming up on the blog shortly. Watch this space.

I’ve been so busy with work — and life in general — that quite a few of the blog posts I’ve been planning to write are still in the ideas stages! I took part in the Spring Surprise Project organised by the lovely Lucy who writes at Capture By Lucy.  I’m so looking forward to putting my posts together for those! I absolutely loved choosing and making the gifts for my allocated partner; and, equally, loved receiving the lovely presents she’d chosen for me!

Every weekend, this past month has been chock full of fun things. As well as our little trip to Wales, we’ve had long, lazy lunches with friends, my boy and I visited the set of Coronation Street, in Manchester, which was epic! The boys’ godmummy looked after them overnight and we got to have a night away in a hotel, which was a real treat.

We celebrated my second Mother’s Day! A vast improvement on last year, that’s for sure! My first Mother’s Day was ruined slightly marred by the fact that both boys had a tummy bug. It was memorable but not in a nice way! This year I celebrated with my own mummy — and daddy — which was lovely :)

We also had a little tea party in honour of my babies turning two.  I made a birthday cake — the first of many, for them, no doubt! I had planned to make a rainbow cake but, as ever, left things until the last minute and ran out of time to buy the food colouring paste. A bit of swift thinking — and a Pinterest search — saved the day and I made this little beauty instead!

And, finally, last weekend we had a houseful of our lovely friends staying and cooked for 15 people on Sunday. Noisy, busy and chaotic — just how I like it!

The perfect end to a pretty perfect month. So to sum up our month, in a nutshell.

This month’s highs ~
• Birthday celebrations for all 3 of my boys!
• Our little holiday to Bluestone.
• A day out at Folly Farm.
• Taking part in the Spring Surprise Project.
• The clocks going forward.

This month’s lows ~
• Ending the month with Cosmo Bear feeling poorly and missing out on nursery today.

      Haha! Thanks Polly! Hilarious — so many people are closet Corrie lovers!! They’ve only come out of the woodwork since I said we’d been to visit the cobbles!! ;)

    This sounds like a great month (and I have to say my jaw dropped at that epic cake!!!) Gorgeous photos, and I am glad your second mother’s day was lovely and that your boys all had a great birthdays =D

    Love this post! Your twins are adorable! Love their cute little faces and matching tops! High 5 on the cake! Please can you be our mum? ;) ;) xx

    • 1st April 2015 / 8:31 am

      Hahaha!! Thanks so much you two — pretty pleased with the cake to be honest — not bad considering it was a last minute/day before jobbie! x

    Now that is a truly epic birthday cake – I love the smarties work!! The Twinkles look so very grown up now they’ve reached two, surely they were just little babies a minute ago! And it sounds like you’ve all had a wonderful month :)

    • 1st April 2015 / 8:33 am

      Thanks Carie — I KNOW?!! WHERE did these grown up boys suddenly appear from?! Amazing — one minute they’re little babies, the next they’re HUGE boys!! :)

    Wow what a big month!! You went to Coronation Street, how cool is that!? And that cake is something else… I hope you know that I will have attempt to copy it at some point. Love your family portrait, the boys are so delicious!! (I’m talking about the little ones – in case you were getting worried – tee hee hee). #meandmine xxxx

    • 1st April 2015 / 8:36 am

      Thanks gorgeous Heledd — it was a HUGE month!! And don’t worry — I think all THREE of my boys ARE delicious!! I would have just agreed with you!!! ;) X

    Your energy is contagious when reading this post Caro! You’re right, you just have to embrace chaos and time with friends. I love how you’ve dressed your boys in matching kind of ‘negative’ jumpers. So cute :) And Folly Farm sounds and looks amazing :)

    • 1st April 2015 / 12:30 pm

      Aaah thanks so much Carol! That’s a lovely thing to say!! The boys get dressed in a lot of matching/not matching clothes!! Bless them! They’ll probably hate me for it when they’re older!! ;) Thanks for your lovely comment x

      It’s been incredibly busy — although that’s the story of my life!! Last year was the busiest 12 months we’ve EVER had — and that really is saying something! x

      Thanks so much Sarah! :) They certainly did — and so did all our little guests who came back for a second piece!! The poor Twinkles only had a little slice each!! ;)
