This month seems to have flown by. Once again we have jam packed the month as we do each month. I think this may be the main reason it goes so quickly. It has been lovely with lots of family time and days out.
We started the month with a little bit of baking which I normally shy away from as I'm not that great with mess but it wasn't too bad. And Finley loved it so that's always the main thing, I keep telling myself! We had World Book day which saw Finley go to pre school dressed as the Gruffalo, his most favourite book character at the moment and I was lucky enough that Sainsbury's did a Gruffalo costume. (I'm sorry I cheated!)
When the sun shone we spent a lot of time outside, whether it be in the garden, on walks or to one of our favourite places at the minute - our local Arboretum.
We have filled our weekdays with playdates with our best friends which involved tea, cake and lots of playing.
We had a day with nothing planned in the middle of the month so I loaded the car and took just the 3 of us to soft play as we were getting cabin fever from being home most of the week. The boys, and me, had a great time with Finley doing some Mothers Day crafts making me a card and a bouquet of flowers from crate paper.
March also saw Mothers Day which I was lucky enough to spend with my little family along with my Mum and Nan. We had the best day just chilling at eating far too much food at Mum's house. I am incredibly lucky to have my husband that made me feel like a queen on Mothers Day, like he does most days.
Just last weekend we spent our Sunday at the local farming college for their Lambing Weekend along with some friends of ours. It was a brilliant day and the boys got to get up close to all sorts of farm animals, Noah wasn't that much of a fan though. It really was a great family day out and memories were created that will stay with me forever.
With Easter fast approaching as we creep into April, we have been to an Easter craft session this week and made some lovely Easter bits. We spent the day with my Nan which saw the boys posing with Easter bonnets, and a Santa's hat!
Our last day of March saw us spending it with an old friend and her children. It was great to see our children playing together as we once did 25 years ago. We stopped off on our way home at my husbands Grandmas house to say hi and the boys were treated to many biscuits and Easter eggs.
