Well half term is done and dusted, its been a mixed one,
some lovely bits and then some I would rather not repeat! The boys have been fighting hard, one
wrestling match and eldest fell face first off the sofa onto the hard laminate
floor. The poor thing had a non-stop
nosebleed for AGES, it was literally pouring out of him with no sign of slowing
or stopping! I was all set to call the
ambulance like it says on the NHS website but fortunately eventually it eased
I pinched the soft bit above his nostrils for what felt like
forever and we tried to apply a cool compress to the bridge of his nose. I have never seen so much blood, as worrying
moments go that was definitely one of them.
I am not quite sure how I managed to stay calm when it looked like a
scene from a Halloween film, but we got through it and my eldest bless him was
very brave. Afterwards he had a late night,
as we wanted to keep an eye on him, he enjoyed some quality time with both of
his parents. We played a couple of
board games and he even watched an episode of the Apprentice. I thought it might teach him something about
business but instead he learnt a couple of low key swear words!!! So possibly that was not one of my wisest decisions.
As for the highlights we went to see a puppet show and the
boys had an opportunity to get involved in a puppet-making workshop, which they
thoroughly enjoyed, it was great for them to learn how you can reuse old
bottles and cartons and transform them into a fun puppet.

We headed to the cinema and watched PAN and
had a lovely meal at the Table
Table in Caernarfon.

The boys had a busy Halloween they went to a party for
THREE hours and danced around for most of that!

Yet they still had enough energy left over to go trick a treating
with their friends, we did well again this year and the boys have sweets to
last them for months! It’s wonderful
where we trick a treat; the residents make a remarkable effort in terms of
costumes and props. One street in
particular you have to brace yourself for because they go all out, they hide in
a car or disguised as a bush or even chase after you with a chainsaw… you have to prepare yourself for ANYTHING!
