Our weekend in pictures, a little diary of what we get up to at the weekends together.

Saturday 1st April 2017 

Well today started off with salt on my toothbrush as the kids played an April fools on me!! (Same one each year, so it came as a big surprise!!)

Then we got out in the garden, we’ve neglected the gardens over the winter, and should have got out their earlier but it’s been too cold, or too wet. Or we’ve been on holiday!

So when we are out in the front garden, the kids like to ride their bikes around the cul-da-sac. It was one reason why we liked this house, as it was on a quiet road, and space for them to play outside.

We were giving the garage a little clear out, and a couple of years ago we reviewed a go kart. The twins were a little young for it then, and not enough strength in their legs to ride it on their own. So we tried it again this year, and they both love it! I would have loved one of these when I was a child!

It was such a beautiful day today, come mid afternoon we thought we would take a trip to the beach for an ice cream.

The bonus of having this 20 mins from our door is that we can head off at 3:30pm and still have a good couple of hours out.

Sofia accidentally broke her watch and wanted to buy herself a new one. So we popped into Argos on the way home from the beach. Her and Daddy went in with her money, and she did everything herself. She was SO excited!!

I suffer with joint problems, and of course that little bit of garden made my back start up hurting badly. When this happens the best thing for me is to rest it straight away, so I headed up to bed on hubby’s orders, with a cuppa, hot water bottle and my laptop. It meant I was able to catch up on some bits though.

*Although this picture has made me go off and dust my laptop!!!!

Sunday 2nd April 2017 

I woke up in a lot of pain today, I hate my back. Hubby got up and took the kids swimming, and tided up the house. He does everything for me when I am like this, but I find it so frustrating not helping out.

I was able to sit and drive, so off I went to get his Mum and Auntie from the train station. That way I felt like I was doing something to help.

Keeping themselves amused whilst waiting for the train by raiding the glove box!!

Poor Gus is still recovering, however his cone is so big and with more people in the house we popped on his blow up ring!! At least he could sit in the garden with a chew, and have a rest from the cone.

SUNSHINE! Wahoo! It was so nice to be able to sit out in the garden, and watch the kids playing.

But after all the sun and running around, Lily just fancied a cuddle with her Mum. Please don’t grow up little ones.

If you don’t already follow me on Instagram I also post a daily picture, and at the end of the year I put them together into a Photobook.

    Looks like you had a lovely weekend. I wish we had beach huts like those here in Ireland. I’m also jealous you had sunshine to enjoy 🙂

    • We made the most of the sunshine too, the beach huts are so cute aren’t they!
