Welcome to March’s Lovely Things. Has everyone had a lovely February? I have to admit it was a bit of a tough month for me as my husband was away for most of the month, I’ve also been ill and then just this week my son has had a rotten stomach bug. But that is why I love this linky, because although things have been tough it’s always nice to look back on the good things that have happened in the month. Sorry it’s a bit late going live today, with all of the sickness I am running a bit behind and decided to take the day off yesterday for Mother’s Day!
A 90th Birthday Party
My Nan turned 90 last month. Which I think is pretty amazing. We had a afternoon tea party for her with all of her children, grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. I can honestly say when I grow up I want to be like her. She embraces life, loves to party and has the best swimming hats known to man.
A Trip To A Farm & Wellington Country Park
We’ve had a couple of lovely days out, despite the weather. The first was to Bockett’s farm, near Leatherhead with friends and we have a great day. Aria kept making me taking up and down the giant slide in the soft play area on repeat. We also got to feed and stroke lots of animals which was super cute. The second was to Wellington Country Park near Reading. I went with a lovely Mum friend I have made through Twitter and we have met a few times now and get on really well. It was exceptionally muddy – and if you know me you will know I’m not actually very fond of mud! I also discovered Aria was not in the least bit fond of it either! But we still have a really fun day out, Logan was delighted to see some dinos and getting a ride on a (children’s) quad bike.
Lunch Out & Mother’s Day
Yesterday was of course Mother’s Day. I hope a lot of you Mums had a nice day? My day started with a much needed two hour lie-in. I almost felt human again. I also got some beautiful flowers and a canvas of me and the children – I just need to decide where to hang it!
My other lovely mention for this month has to be our visit to review Jamie’s Italian in Reading. We went in the week my husband was back home between travelling. He went to the States for two weeks, was home for a week and then went to India for two weeks. It was a really lovely meal out and much needed family time. It is one of those times when I was really grateful for the opportunities this blog gives my family and I.
Another month, another bag. My husband did put me on a bit of a bag buying ban too (oops!). But I couldn’t resist this Pink Lining rucksack in the Leap Day sale. We’re going to Nice In April and that will be the first time I have flown with the children, so I wanted a rucksack to fit in travelling and change bag essentials. How cute are the little dalmatians?
