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.
