I didn’t quite keep on top of my 366 posts last year but it’s something that i definitely enjoyed doing. I caught Jak looking through the blog yesterday laughing at the pictures and remembering his life through the last year.
So here is my first 366 post of the year
The boys visited Nanny for a New Years dinner, Nanny doesn’t live near us, it’s about a 45 minutes drive away. Nanny cooked a lovely dinner and the boys enjoyed all the cuddles they received.
Oliver smiling whilst in his buggy at his big brothers
Joseph’s reindeer picture made from leaves that he collected
Joseph received super speller from his school for getting all of his spellings right
Joseph dressed up as Ash from Pokemon, using his baseball cap that he got from Coombemill for our post on country kids
Oliver not very well as he is cutting some more back teeth
As its children in need today Joseph has spent all evening cuddling up to my Teddy Pudsey. It was bought for me when I was in hospital by the boys to make me feel better.
Paul thought the eye patch was covering Pudsey’s ear which is where I had an operation.
On our drive back from Isle of Wight on Friday we stopped over at a motorway stopover, one of those Extra ones.
We’ve been to one of the big ones before, it was huge! With the normal McDonald’s, burger king and whSmiths but they also had a Greggs and a Marks and Spencer’s. I had a little look around and found a bouquet of flowers presented in a box with a ribbon round it, the were beautiful and caught my eye straight away. I was thinking about treating myself when I noticed that they were reduced to £3 down from £13!!
Well, I had to have them at that price!
Beautiful aren’t they!
Oliver had us all in giggles walking through these bicycle posts.
He kept ducking his head just incase he didn’t fit through, he had so much fun running through them that he did it over and over again
Today’s photo of the day has got to be of Joseph doing his homework spellings.
When I picked him up last week on Friday afternoon from school he was jumping for joy, he had practised all week long with his spellings and he had got them all right 🙂 he was beaming from ear to ear with the biggest ‘proud of himself’ grin. He was chuffed to pieces with his super speller certificate, which is now on show on the kitchen cupboard for us to see every day.
This week he has really tried hard too with his spellings and his hand writing, I can see a huge improvement in his writing and his spellings, he has become more interested in his homework and wants to learn how to do his spellings. At first he struggled to keep his writing in the small boxes on the grid but with practice he now fits them all in there.
This is why I love Autumn!
