Our weekend in pictures, a little diary of what we get up to at the weekends together. Just a bunch of normal family life pictures!

Be prepared for hardly any photos of Saturday and lots for Sunday! I am still getting my head around vlogging and picture taking at the same time!! I need an assistant (hint hint Kev!)

I am vlogging my weekends too so please take a little watch and feel free to subscribe to my channel to keep up with us. 

Saturday 3rd February 

It was pretty rubbish weather on Saturday so we made the most of it and got some shopping jobs done. I thought we would treat the kids and go to the McDonalds whilst we were there. It was CLOSED! It has been here since I was a teenager but today it was close of refurbishment!!! Just typical!!!  

So wrapped up our jobs and went back home and went to our local one instead. The girls had spent their money on a teddy each. Lily picked this fluffy unicorn and happily fed it McDonalds!!

Here is Gus waiting patiently for me to open the pet shop parcel that arrived! With his food and a very tasty treat inside!  

Anyone got a laminater? I have just started using one for the first time and I love it!!! First job to print out the chores for the kids to earn their pocket money!!  

These were the 2 teddies the girls got. Look at the size of that PUG?!

Sunday 4th February 

Me and Kev have taken up a special offer at the leisure centre that the girls have their swimming lessons at. So we have started swimming whilst they are too. It is a great exercise for me to do to help my back surgery recovery too. 

Quick lunch top up for us…….although look at naughty Gus thinking it looks pretty tasty too! 

We haven’t been kite flying with the kids for years! Who else loved Mary Poppins when they were younger? 

We visited The New Forest as it was suggested as a great place to kite fly. It was perfect, large open quiet place. Slightly up higher too so plenty of wind!

I also post a daily picture, and at the end of the year I put them together into a Photobook.

    • Oh that is SO lovely of you to say, thank you. I keep forgetting to pick it up too. I think the more you do it the more you remember to pick it up. I was surprised I had enough footage this weekend!

  6. We love kite flying too and Mary Poppins that reminds me I need to find where our kite is – it’s been lovely and windy for it of late.

    • I can’t believe I’ve left it so long to do it with them again. Perfect weather for it!

  7. Reading and watching your video makes me reminisce my childhood days. I used to fly a kite before too and now I realize how time flies really. I am glad your kids are enjoying a lot and you also give time for your pet.

  8. Eliza would go mad for that unicorn!! Mine actually asked to go kite flying this weekend but it wasn’t breezy enough here
