Day 90. Easter cakes.

Last day of term today, yippeee! 
Will be nice to have the girls home for a bit (did I really just say that?!  )
Here's the cakes that the girls made for today's PTA Easter Egg Hunt at school:


and my offering (was quite chuffed with the compliments ):

Day 89. Certificate for the Head.

Sasha sat and wrote this certificate for the Head teacher Mrs.H tonight :)
She's so thoughtful!
She can actually write her name really neatly now, so I'm sure the rest will catch up.

Day 88. Blue Sky.

Yes, the sky really was that blue in the UK today. Unseasonably warm!

Day 86. Easter Crafting.

Both girls had a lovely time after school today, a short play on the trampoline and then great concentration on an Easter craft project making and decorating eggs. I was really impressed with their levels of creativity and how much care they took - very unusual!!

Day 85. Girls Having Fun!

Looks like fun, almost wish I'd been there... but I was having a much needed catch up with best pal session instead. Don't think the girls missed me too much ;)

Day 84. Mother's Day plants.

Here they are, in the garden where they belong, at last (thanks Mr C). 
One from Tamsin last year, then one from each of the girls this year. 
Fingers crossed they grow and thrive too!

Day 83. Class 2 Assembly.

Sasha was very happy after assembly (see my main blog Assembly update), 
doing lots of twirling around with her chef's pinny on!

Day 80. Weekend round up part 2.

OK, skipping back to Saturday evening now.....


Wow, wow, wow. I loved this because a) it was actually fab, and b) Tamsin really enjoyed it - her first ever concert, but definitely not the last!!

Day 79. Weekend round up.

I couldn't bring myself to post a photo of the sunset tonight (although it was lovely) when I've got so many photos from the weekend I'd still like to show.
So here's a couple for starters:



The train trip into London followed by top front seats on a red double decker bus - exactly what Sasha ordered!

Day 78. Mother's Day.


Such a lovely way to start the day. 
The writing on the envelopes and in the cards was very special.
We then went on to have a brilliant day out - more on the blog soon!

Day 77. Visit to my mummy AND JLS!!





                                     To Birmingham via a canal somewhere....

                                                      A Brilliant Day.

Day 76. Mother's Day assembly.

Sometimes you feel like you have no photos, and then all of a sudden, like buses, there's a run on them. Anyhow this is the pic for today - the words from a song in Mother's Day Assembly, which was just the right side of touching 
i.e. I didn't have to pull out the full box of tissues ;)

Day 75. Early morning fog, early afternoon sun.





Taken at about 8.45am as I bundled the girls into the car for the school run, followed by:


taken at 12.30pm - what a gorgeous day, more summer than spring!

Day 74. Spring has Sprung!

I've been looking at these for the past few days and loving how yellow and cheery they are, so I thought I'd share!

Day 73. Toys and reiews.

Poor Big Girl was off school poorly today. She managed to drag herself upstairs at one point to help me out though. She arranged our latest product to review in a display for a photo (along with some of her existing favourites):

I have a feeling there'll be another one of these days later in the week....!

Day 71. Happy Uncles.

Happy girls and Happy uncles.

Day 70. A 'grown-up' night out!

We were delighted to be invited to a joint 40th party for some 'old' friends of ours - it's not very often that we go out without the girls! It was a lovely evening, and as we were leaving the girls were having great fun on the trampoline with Uncle Matty and Uncle O.

Day 69. Playdate.

Friday playdate, good way to start the weekend. Everyone sitting at the tea table, it's a miracle!!

Day 66. Pink Beetle.

OK so I'm not getting any closer to winning an amazing prize with the quality of my photos sadly, but this was just a snippet of today:



A lovely deep pink Beetle which we followed home. Sasha insisted it was a taxi, as the only pink car she knows is Tina's taxi in the CBeebies 'Me Too' programme. 
I'm sure that even when she's 18, she will think that all pink cars are taxis.....!

Day 62. A gift for me!!

I was really chuffed to receive a little package through the post today..... 
it's not very often I treat myself, but I was given some money at Christmas and have only just got around to spending it!!

So Thank You...




Day 61. Friends.




Uh-oh, playing catch up now - I had these photos ready but just forgot to post them!
