So this week Preschool was closed due to staff sickness and not having enough staff to cover and no bank staff to take over. Which meant Finley would be home all day Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and then the whole of next week as its half term. This put the fear of god into me lol!! But with recent events and me feeling rather protective and wanting to spend all my time with them, this was the perfect opportunity to do so.

On Tuesday I took the boys off to Westonbirt Arboretum. It was just us three and it was lovely. Having some special time with the two of them and them getting my full attention. We picked dandelion's and blew dandelion clocks, took selfies and had lunch together in the café.

Then on Wednesday, Finley had been due at preschool and I'd planned to go shopping just with Noah for my Mums birthday present, we all went shopping with a friend and her little girl. Yes it was little stressful as they don't like shopping, but we chose my mums present together and enjoyed a McDonalds.

Thursday we enjoyed the park in the sun and then had lunch at a friends house where the boys got to play with their best friend. And today we have had my Mums dog come to stay for the weekend so we have been on a lovely long walk with Mikey and Finley on the bike.

So this week has all been about the three of us and enjoying some time together without the restraints of preschool dropping off and picking up times. And not having to worry about getting dressed and chilling in our pyjamas. So even though we are a family of four, the week days have all been about the three of us.

  1. Ah, sounds like a lovely unexpected week for the three of you. I do love not having to do school runs, good to just chill and play for a bit longer :) Thanks for joining in and sharing with #WotW x

  2. Aww! It sounds like you have had a lovely time!
    Have a great weekend and a lovely half term x

  3. We love Westonbirt. How lovely to enjoy it before half term. #Wotw

  4. Wow! You coped so well, I'm not great with the unplanned! Lovely to read about Westonbirt- we passed the signs recently and I'm very tempted to pack everyone in the car for the day. Sounds like you've had great preparation for half-term, I sense at least one McDonald's will be consumed on our week off. x #WotW

  5. Sounds like you made the most of the unexpected time off! Have a lovely half term
