Joining in with the HappyDays Linky, inspiring people to make the most of every day.
Out and about
On Monday we took a trip to the post office to post a birthday parcel to Rosalie’s friend Josh who is one this week; Rosalie was much admired by the old dears in the queue! Whilst we were in town we went to the library to exchange our books. Here’s a tip for free: always take out the same number of books, that way you’ll know you’ve got them all and there isn’t a stray one lurking under the chair!
On Thursday we met up with our friends J & Baby G for some fun at our local soft play centre. It was the first time I’d taken Rosalie and I am not sure what she made of it! She didn’t seem to be too keen on the ball pit, I don’t think she liked the way she sunk in and couldn’t crawl. She did like the rocking animals though, and it was good for her to crawl around freely. I hope she didn’t catch the dreaded soft play lurgy! By the state of her socks, I wouldn’t be surprised…
Fun at home
Earlier in the week I dyed some rice so we could do some sensory play; I did have grand plans but I only got around to putting some into a bottle to make a shaker so far! I have also made her a black eyed bean shaker – these are quite good at keeping her amused for a short while in her highchair whilst I cook dinner.
Daddy bought Rosalie a pop-up tunnel to play in and, after a bit of enticing, we spent an afternoon crawling around – mummy was a bit too big though!
Time for me
I actually managed a small bit of me time this week, despite a number of late nights I did get an early night last weekend and read a few chapters of my book (actually kindle – currently Bridget Jones Mad About the Boy). Jim and I also made sushi and had a sort of dinner-date, we even had wine!
My happiest moment
Seeing Rosalie rummage around in the book bins at the library – she seems to be really happy and at home with books, which I am so pleased about.
Next week I would like to try…
My parents are coming to stay for five days next week so hopefully we will get up to lots of fun things with them.
