I am so British and I talk about the weather far too often but hasn’t the weather been glorious this week? So nice to finally feel the warmth of the sun and we have spent a lot of time outdoors enjoying it.
Last weekend we spent a lot of time outdoors doing some gardening. We were due to have some friends to visit but their little girls came down with a nasty stomach bug poor things so that had to cancel at the last minute. We thought we would take the opportunity to do a few bits on our front garden as we have finally had the driveway finished and it was time to lay some turf and do a bit of reorganising out there.
Bank holiday Monday we went to meet some friends at NT Stowe for the day, I will share more about that in a separate post but we had a lovely day and were lucky to get a bit of sunshine!
Tuesday Monkey and I were both feeling full of cold so actually spent most of the day indoors, but we did go for a walk and a scoot and I am so proud of Monkey as he is amazing on his scooter all of a sudden. He’s not been keen on this new one and really hasn’t wanted to learn how to do it, but he has finally got it and looks so grown up scooting down the path.
I was also proud of myself as even though I wasn’t feeling great I got out for a run. It’s my latest thing in a bid to get healthy and so far I really am enjoying it even though I’m not very good at the moment!
Wednesday my mum and I took the kiddoes to our favourite local farm Park and the weather was amazing! So warm and sunny and just lovely so we had such a wonderful day!
We spent more time outdoors at home that afternoon too watering the turf we have just laid and our little lady discovered she loves running through the spray of water from the hose. Shouldn’t be surprised really given how much she loves water!
I was also really proud of our Monkey who wanted to get on his bicycle. He’s had it nearly a year but we always struggle to motivate him to have a go. But one of his friends has recently got a bike and is already riding without stabilisers so his has definitely been a motivating factor for him! He has still a way to go but is definitely improving and his Uncle Marky popped over to borrow a ladder so he helped him out a bit too.
Thursday Monkey went off on a coach trip with playgroup, eek! Made me nervous but he had a wonderful time. Meanwhile LM had a little play with her friend (and I chatted with my friend) then we had another good friend pop over with her gorgeous little man, we went for a walk then enjoyed sitting out in the sunshine.
Finally this afternoon when Monkey returned from his trip we got some water in the tuff spot and had a play outside. Monkey wanted to take a picture of his baby sister and I and I was quite impressed with he got! Budding photographer. LM of course adored jumping and splashing in the water haha. Love this weather!
My word of the week is outdoors.
It’s great to get outside finally in the sunshine. LM really does look like she adores the water. Well done to Monkey for getting out on the bike and scooter.
Ah these are the best bits of being a sahm! Lovely days. You have done loads! The weather has been gorgeous and it was so great to catch up! It better not rain all weekend now!! Xx #wotw
What a fab week! Very sociable as well as lovely sunshine and outdoors time. It has been great to be outside a lot again, hasn’t it? My kids have enjoyed it, too x Thanks for sharing with #WotW
You’ve certainly spent lots of time outdoors, what fun. I really need to get on with some gardening, or rather, giving orders 😉
We can’t help talk about the weather when it is so nice….I find myself having to stop myself tweeting all the time about the sunshine. lol
It looks like such a great week! So much outdoor fun x
Hi Caroline, you’ve had a nice outdoors sort of week for sure. I love the photos of the children having fun in the fresh air. Your little girl looks so cheeky. It’s wonderful what a healthy bit of competition can do, Monkey will be riding his bike without stabilizers before you know it.
Sounds like you have had a lovely week in the sunshine! Great that you went for a run too X love how you’ve used your TuffSpot as a splash pool! #CountryKids
What a wonderful week you’ve had making the most of the sunshine and love the water play photos – Monkey did a great job at taking those! Stowe is on my list of places to visit – it looks like you and Sarah had a wonderful day out together there. Love the photo of LM running through the spray from the hose – what a fun thing to do. Hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂
It definitely looks like you’ve made the most of this weeks sunshine, and for once we’ve had plenty! Monkey and LM look like they’ve had such a great week, LM’s face as she runs through the water is so sweet. Monkey is certainly a budding photographer! Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.
I regularly read her blog too! Both of your blog are nice and honest! Its so nice to have this kind of weather isnt it? Perfect for catching up and being out! #wotw #countrykids
Lovely to see the kids having fun in the sun. #wotw #countrykids
Isn’t it so nice to get them out of the house at last! Looks like you’re all having lots of fun in the sun – long may this continue! #CountryKids
