Sunday 15th February – Day 46
Visiting the Brooklands Museum has been on my ‘To do List’ for a very long time, and having read PODCast’s recent post, we set a date and off we went. It was a brilliant day, good weather and a really happy Monkey. He was eager to go on everything, it was wonderful. We even went on Concorde, which we all enjoyed.
Monday 16th February – Day 47
We were meeting up with friends and had planned to visit the Oxfordshire Museum only to find out that it isn’t open on Mondays. Never mind, we headed back to our friends house and the boys had a great play date and lunch instead. Back home there was Duplo fun to be had before bedtime.
Tuesday 17th February – Day 48
We spent most of the day on art and craft activities before heading off for a memorable swimming lesson. The boy actually swam a width of the junior pool, unaided! At last! So very proud of him, let’s hope it’s the start of a new adventure.
Wednesday 18th February – Day 49
Another day of changed plans. We were meeting up with Redpeffer and family and were meant to meet at Kenilworth Castle. But, after Monday’s issues, I checked online and noticed that the cafe is only open at weekends until April. We all agreed to save that for the future and they headed down to our neck of the woods. After a quick refreshment stop at our house, we spent some time at Waddesdon Manor. I’ve been raving about one of our favourite haunts for ages and finally Iona and her family got to see why we love it so much.
Of course, Monkey found a stick and was having lots of fun with his friends. Later in the evening Iona sent me a text which sent me straight to my homepage – I’ve made it to 45 in Tots100. I still can’t believe it, and am sure there’s a 1 missing there somewhere!! But if it’s only for a month, I will enjoy it 🙂
Thursday 19th February – Day 50
We spent the day with our Special Sheba, had lots of fun and a lovely lunch out. I totally forgot to take any photos until Monkey had gone to bed and I noticed his latest Jenga block construction project – Stonehenge in the making perhaps?
Friday 20th February – Day 51
We drove down the motorway to spend the day with one of Dad’s cousins. Monkey was in his element showing L and I a tractor flying display (you had to be there) before having lunch. He was chatting away and had a lovely time, we had a quick visit to the park before feasting on homemade cake. There were problems on the motorway so we drove home across country. It’s been a busy week and I was shattered, so decided to take a night off from swimming lessons.
We’ve had a lazy day at home and I decided to crack on and finish my two outstanding sewing projects. Monkey now finally has his dressing gown and I sewed in the elastic waistband for his summer pj shorts. I’m going to alter a white t-shirt to go with them. Can’t believe our week together is nearly over, going to miss my sidekick on Monday.
