Happy Halloween!

Today has been a better day.  Play dough and cbeebies have helped Leo's mood but we were still stuck indoors as it has poured with rain ALL day :(

Hope you're doing something fun for halloween- I'm doing washing up, tidying and laundry- how exciting!!

And breathe!

Oh my goodness Leo has been such a handful these past few days. Terrible whining and screaming orders at me. Things like CAKE! at breakfast time!
Last night I went to get Oscar's milk from the fridge and it was frozen solid because Leo had been fiddling with the settings! Today we had eggs smashed on the floor, orange juice sprayed on the wall and I had a throat injury. They don't call it the terrible twos for nothing!
Thankfully both boys are in bed now and I can breathe a sigh of relief.
I have lit my little oil burner with some lovely new seamoss oil my mum gave me and have made a cup of tea in my nice figgy mug!

Autumn walk in the park

I had a lovely walk in the park with the boys yesterday. The colours are just amazing and I can't believe how quickly everything changes.

The air was cold and crisp but the sun was shining and it felt like the best place to be!

Leo had lots of fun crunching though the leaves, picking up stones, splashing in muddy puddles and running about. He was very tired when we got home.

Oscar slept the whole time in his buggy but at least he got the fresh air too!

Hello again

Eek. It's been a whole month since I last blogged!

It's been busy here. Here's a little round up!

Max started back at uni and is enjoying his course so far. The workload is huge so we've not been seeing much of him which is hard. Leo looks out of the window and says "dada goed away".

Leo has started at a local Playgroup a couple of mornings a week. He seems to be settled now but we had a tricky first few weeks with him crying when I left! He seems to be enjoying it now and comes home covered in paint and glue and his face all flushed from rushing about!

Oscar is now 3 months old. I just don't know where the time is going. He's smiling more now and makes little noises when you talk to him. The poor little thing had croup a couple of weeks ago but has recovered now. He's sleeping a bit better at night too.

It's a beautiful sunny autumn day here in Lugton. Hopefully it will stay like this for a few days. I've got lots of jobs to do in the garden.

Hopefully I'll be back soon!
