So the first week of the summer holidays is done, and we all survived. I think I’ve got the hang of 3 children now! Here’s a little summary of our week together:
Ezra was at nursery and the weather was dreadful. What is it about school holidays starting at the weather taking a nose-dive?! So Violet, Felix and I spent much of the day at home. We watched Moana for the second time (this is fast becoming one of my favourite Disney films). When the rain stopped we wandered down to Costa for a hot chocolate treat.
Yay for sunshine! We headed over to High Elms for a picnic with two of Violet’s school friends. It was such a brilliant afternoon. The children had space to run and play and Felix enjoyed having me to himself for a while!
In the afternoon we got the bus into Bromley and my mum treated me to some new Converse! She saw the state of my old ones and said I should really get some new shoes! To be fair she was completely right as I’ve had them for 11 years!!!!!!!!! So now I have some beautiful new shoes with no holes in. Violet also dug up some of the carrots she has been growing and I cooked them for their dinner. They were very tasty!
We were up and out early for the first time all week to go to Summer Boppin Tots! I have taken the boys to this class every week of my maternity leave and they have both really enjoyed it. Violet comes along in the holidays and always loves it. It was an extended class for the summer holidays so there was MORE of everything, including the snow machine at the end!
We headed out for another picnic with Violet’s pre-school friends. As soon as I stepped out of the car it started to rain!! But in typical British fashion we carried on. With an umbrella! It was actually fine, we set up the rugs under a large tree and the kids didn’t care about a few drops of rain.
And that’s our week! We are all still friends and I don’t think any of us are wishing school was still on! Roll on next week (after I’ve had a rest this weekend!!)0
