This morning has been a challenging one (I’ll leave it at that, if you have kids you’ll know what I mean!), which made focusing on the positive equal parts difficult and more important. I looked through the vast amount of photos I’ve taken over the course of week to bring back all the happy moments and here are my highlights:

A morning spent at Binchester Roman Fort (post to follow):

  • M and L ‘excavating’ Roman pottery in a small sandpit.
  • M getting to try on lots of different Roman helmets and dress in armour.
  • L got to try on a plastic version and started banging her sword on her shield like a fierce warrior.

A great day at Lowther Castle (post to follow):

  • L dancing in the house in the woods.
  • M running round the play castle having so much fun.
  • My dad pushing L in the swing, she wouldn’t let him stop for a good half hour!
  • We all had a go on the tree swing (including my mum and dad!), I felt like a kid again 🙂

I finally got all the back to school shopping done.

M was invited to a trampoline centre with some friends. Afterwards I took him for lunch at McDonalds just the two of us (left L with Granny).

Last Sunday M asked Granny and Grandad if he could have a sleepover and it was arranged for Thursday, he always has a great time there.

With M sleeping away I got to have some one on one time with L.

While I was cooking tea last night L decided to bring her cooking set through and play next to me.

How was your week?

  5. great list of happy considering you were feeling low! I look through my photos to find the happy bits each week. It really helps. It’s a struggle when I’ve not taken many photos though! #happydays

    1. Thank you. I’m the same, on days I haven’t taken pictures I struggle to remember what we did at all!

    1. I think we’ve all been there, sometimes it really is a good job I love them! One on one time is great, especially with the oldest, can’t be easy having his little sister cramp his style all the time!
