Early January 2015

I have been meaning to write updates about our life weekly like other bloggers do, so I can remember what we get up to as a family more than anything.  I have a terrible memory and I have enjoyed going back through my blog and reading the odd personal nugget about our family life, the funny things the boys would say or just looking back at pictures of them when they were much younger.  So its high time I put a few minutes aside to remember our days so they do not get forgotten!

Already its fallen by the wayside as I have managed to miss Week 1 somehow!  So what have I forgotten to say, well we had a lovely walk in the woods, a good 4 mile brisk hike was just what we needed to burn off some of the energy the boys and the puppy have.  

We have been playing a lot of board games with the colder weather; the boys are especially enjoying Catch Phrase and The Magic Tooth Fairy Game.  In Winter I am glad I have reviewed so many board games as they really do come in handy.

Today the boys had parents evening, both are doing very well.  Eldest is one of the brightest in his class apparently that pleased me no end!  His teacher said he starts the day off very enthusiastically but then gets a little lazy with his work, he knows he has the knowledge in there though which is the main thing!  Youngest is doing well with maths and is very polite in his class, but he struggles to sit quietly for mat time and needs to work on his writing.  So we have a couple of aims and targets but the main thing is they are thriving in school.  Hubbie and I could not be more proud.

Afterwards we went to my friends and the boys had a “chocolate party”!  She had melted down lots of her Christmas chocolate and the boys could help themselves to marshmallows and strawberries.  Eldest overdid it I think as he ended up with stomach ache, he can get a little carried away when it comes to the sweet stuff bless him.  I should really monitor how much he has, as he tends to feel poorly if he overindulges.

Today we had a lovely delivery of a brand new washing machine, a competition win for my BEKO mood board.  It was such a treat as our current washing machine was on its last legs!  Hubbie had to regularly pull it apart and try and fix it and it was always making the most peculiar sounds.

Yesterday I let the boys have a friend each over from school, we had chips from the chippie and they probably all spent a bit too much time on their respective screens!  I do need to encourage them to play with all their other toys, but I do find it harder than normal when they have company over.

  1. The chocolate party sounds fun and I'm envious about the chips (they are lush). Glad they are doing so well at school. We still have the writing thing to work on too.
