Sunday 1st March – Day 60
After seeing some Instagram photos of PODCast’s recent trip to see the butterflies at RHS Wisley I knew we had to actually get there this year. So the date was pencilled in and off we went. I used to visit Wisley a lot as a child but it’s been well over 30 years since my last visit. The butterflies didn’t disappoint, but actually seeing Monkey running through the rock garden just as my brother and I had years before was the highlight.
I went off to seeing class to modify a t-shirt to go with Monkey’s pj shorts. The machine didn’t want to play ball though, so we spent most of the lesson trying different things to get it working properly. All good fun. Spaghetti Bolognese for dinner and of course that means mess alert!
Swimming lesson for Monkey and he made it quite obvious he wasn’t in the mood to try kicking let alone swimming. Disappointing as he was being graded, I’ll get the results on Monday. When we got home I had a Chuggington app for him to try out on my new iPad mini, so much easier for him to use than my phone.
Granny’s birthday so we called her to wish her many happy returns before heading off to school. But Monkey then decided it was now my birthday and he made me countless birthday cards! When then put our finishing touches to Mr Bump for World Book Day.
Thursday 5th March – Day 64
World Book Day and Monkey took his Mr Bump potato to school. I then headed down to London for an event with Moonpig launching their Spring collection. Sometimes blogging is a rather surreal experience; one minute you’re in the Sky Bar of a Holborn hotel looking out across the city skyline and the next you are legging it up the road from the station to get home in time to pick Monkey up. It was a really enjoyable day, more to come on that soon.
Friday 6th March – Day 65
I got some work done in the morning and then met friends for lunch. The weekend starts as soon as I collect Monkey from school on a Friday. We chatted away on the way home and then caught up with the news from Spain with Granny and Gramps on Skype. Then it was tickle time! My swimming lesson was a bit hit and miss, think I left my brain at home this evening.
Saturday 7th March – Day 66
We had a lazy morning watching CBeebies in bed and I woke up with a stiff neck – ouch! We got Monkey’s homework out-of-the-way – Maths, so he was happy to concentrate on his number lines. Then it was tidy up time – the living room looks like a cross between a toy shop and a building site. It was meant to be a two-man job, but I think someone forgot to tell Monkey. Mummy, I’m just having some quiet time!
