This week we have been back to school and work so most of my pictures are pretty random.
Sunday saw us finally taking down and packing away the Christmas decorations. It’s a task I put off every year, the house always looks so bare. I did have a little smile to myself though when I packed away the stockings, this year we will have 4 stockings instead of 3!
Monday was mine & the munchkins last days off! Unfortunately there was no lie in for us. We had to be up early to take the car in for a service and it’s MOT. Which it failed, spending A LOT of money on the car (the tax is also due) is not the best of starts to the year. We did get a courtesy car for the day. The munchkin was very impressed with the ‘posh’ car, although I think she really just meant clean!
Tuesday I had my 1st consultants appointment regarding controlling my blood pressure this time round, I’m classed as ‘high risk’ this time and I have a lot to think about regarding birth choices and was told quite a bit of information, I really had to concentrate (I’ve written a little more about my appointment here) then it was back to work for me.
After school we let the munchkin play with her ipad that her nana & granddad got her for Christmas. We limit the time she plays on it. As it is linked to my apple account my imessages appear on it. She has taken to sending us and my friends messages. It’s actually something I don’t mind her doing, it’s very difficult to get her to think about how words are spelt by sounding them out, getting her to write things down is a battle as is getting her to read! I have pre warned my friends who have been replying to her. Believe it or not it has encouraged her to think about what she’s writing in her messages and to make attempts at reading the reply.
I came home to this beautiful hand painted card! Apparently the munchkin had been planning the card all week, so on Thursday before I got home, with a little help getting the paints out from Mr C, she made me this!
I was not feeling the best. Very achy and hot! I actually got in the bath, with I never do as I’m a shower girl and then got my fleecy lounge pants on and relaxed on the sofa for the night! A head cold and a headache has taken control this weekend and as I’m limited to what I can take it’s going to take me a little longer than normal to shake it off!
The munchkin was going to a party at Splashzone. I really wasn’t sure whether she’d like it or not, all depending on her mood depends on whether she’s calm if we ask her to jump in the shower or she turns into a screaming banshee! I didn’t have to worry as she absolutely loved it! It always makes me smile when I see her playing with her friends and to see her having so much fun! After the splash play was party tea and Ice lollies that made all the kids tongues turn blue! Hours of entertainment for them!

How wonderful to get a hand painted card – I love that and the blue tongue 🙂
She’s very pleased with herself about the card! She showed anyone who would look that tongue 🙂
Aw the Christmas decs *sigh* I do actually miss them 😦 There are a lot of very educational games on the ipad just difficult to ration as they get older – good luck!
She’s already on rationing of the iPad 🙂 She’s been very good with it which I’m pleased about! I miss them for a little while, then I’m glad they’re away for a few months 🙂
What a lovely card!
Thank you, she’s very proud of it
Lovely painting 🙂
In regards to the iPad, you can set up it with your iTunes Store account to share apps, but a different iCloud account so munchkin doesn’t see your messages etc. I really should write a blog post about this at some point…. 😉
Ooo! I will have to look into that, although not that technically minded so may end up round in circles 🙂 if you write a post on it let me know!
Love the card and the blue tongue 🙂
Thank you! She showed everyone who would look her tongue!
Aww that card is just lovely! How sweet x
Thank you, she is very proud of it x
Such a lovely card. Sorry to hear about your car, my motto with cars is you can’t live with them, you can’t live without them. 🙂
Love the xmas decs pic and how sweet that card is – so lovely.
our car is away for new brakes on friday, its never ending. Love the car and the blue tongue – dread to think how high she got with the colourings in it
