I’m a day later than usual with this. I’m struggling to find some motivation!
Last Friday was a super quiet day at home. It was a good rest before a busy weekend though. On Saturday we hopped in the van and visited my Grandad in Bath. It was his first time meeting Astrid, but Iris made him spend most of the visit playing with her. They had a good time with a sheet of bubble wrap! Afterwards we popped in to see my mum, and my niece and nephew who were staying there. They ran up and down for a bit while my mum chased after them!
On Sunday we took Iris to the monthly outdoor playgroup in the park. It was dinosaur themed this month, and Iris and Trevor made a den for a dinosaur and some footprint ‘fossils’, then we all did a dinosaur trail in the trees. We followed that with a supermarket cafe lunch, and a quiet afternoon with Trevor watching the rugby.
We were up early on Monday, so we went to playgroup. It’s been a while since we made it on a Monday morning! We didn’t do so well on Tuesday though, and stayed at home all day. Iris played with play dough and we did some baking.
On Wednesday we went to crochet club but it was a quiet one and nobody did any crochet! It’s always nice to get out for lunch though. I bought some new shoes and jeans with my birthday money while we were in town.
Thursday was breastfeeding group which was also pretty quiet this week. It’s been so cold here, I’m sure people are hibernating!
We stayed in again yesterday and the health visitor came. Astrid gained a good amount of weight again and all is good. Her first vaccinations are on Tuesday and I’m dreading them!
Trevor picked up the big girls last night, and we had a go at putting Iris to bed in their room. It didn’t go well! She kept pointing to the top bunk and saying ‘I go high?’ The girls were tired so we got her out and she slept in our bed instead.
This morning Iris got me up early, so Trevor stayed in bed with Astrid and the big ones slept in too. Time for Peppa Pig and breakfast while we wait for everybody else to rise. We have a busy weekend ahead!
