My oh my, February has been super fast right? Even if we do have one extra day this year it has flown in the blink of the eye! After Phoenix’s 2nd birthday celebrations we then celebrated Mr T’s birthday including a lovely date night for us two at a fantastic restaurant where the food was amazing! We then had a lovely relaxed week for half term which I was so sad to see end as we really do just enjoy being with each other like we always have been. We did lots of crafting, playing, parks, play dates and a trip to a local museum.Another thing thats been a big change for our family this past week is that we’ve had our ‘dreadful, mud bath’ driveway done (HUGE air grab/ fist punch into the sky!). The amount of times our mornings have been slowed down by the state of it, particularly in the big rain falls, it has been awful. Not to mention all shoes being covered in mud, kids falling over in mud – on the school run, yeah thats fun!…me finding it harder to get each kid in the car without getting covered myself from lifting them, even though I shouldn’t be doing that either because of my tummy muscles & back but hey – got to be done when the mornings are mental! Mr T also got his van stuck on there too which is always so helpful! So yes, on the whole, we are so pleased with the outcome and are looking forward to getting some plants out the front to add to the finished product (a before & after post will be coming soon!)
To sum up we’ve had a lovely month as a family in all honesty the only thing on my part that hasn’t been so much fun is just getting very uncomfortable in these last 6 weeks of pregnancy
now, especially as I’m anaemic and trying to get my levels up, carrying a huge (said alien/pumpkin type bump) and feeling pretty achy, weak from rubbish sleep, & awful leg cramps in my sleep! This has also led to a round of feeling ‘Mama-guilt’
as I’ve felt like a slow moving, pale looking, moody Mum with not a lot of patience at times.I did want to add, (and feel a little proud about!) that I’ve been given some lovely work & opportunities through my blog recently, including a collaboration with Pampers
. Small but gradual steps which I’ve been enjoying much more now i’m feeling a bit more organised with my diary & planner!
Other than that, we’re watching our baby grow within my ever expanding tummy with joy that he or she will soon be here to make our tribe that of six members.
March should be another interesting month as it will not only potentially be our last month as a family of five, but we’ll be doing a lot of ‘baby prep’, continuing to transform our home into something we love, another half term will be on its way (woohoo) and above all, we are going to cherish every last minute of it before another change happens.
You may be able to tell that we’ve gone a little ‘daffodil mad’ recently but are using this to be fully embracing the arrival of Spring! We usually buy or grow our own daff’s but this little area of green just near our home is a spot that the kids love to explore and when theres an open opportunity, kids will be kids & they will pick a few “for their Mumma & Daddy’s bedroom”.
