The first week of the Easter holiday has passed at a gallop.
We started Monday with a lay in and then carried on the day with a fair amount of general lazing about. The afternoon saw a bit more action when we had a new kitchen window and back door fitted.
Our old door was a wooden one and let in so many draughts and the kitchen window was the last wooden framed one in the house which needed to be replaced with a double glazed one.
Not that exciting as far as home improvements go but we are so pleased to finally get these two jobs done.
Tuesday was chosen as the day to go and pick up my mum so the four of us could go on our annual Easter trail at Itchen Valley Country Park.
S has been wearing hair clips with bunny ears on all week and lent them to T for a quick photo opportunity.
She was concerned about him wearing them at a slightly wonky angle and here she is trying to help him, all he was concerned about was getting a selfie!
Although I haven't been posting my daily photo challenge here I have been keeping up with it on Instagram.
Tuesday was draw a picture of a bird day.
My drawing skills are pretty rubbish and when S asks me can you draw a horse/pig/cat then the results aren't always very impressive. I found something on Pinterest which shows you how to basic animals and so we had a go.
S's is on the left (including her bird) and I had to share my very woolly sheep.
We live quite close to a branch of The Range and after seeing an advert in a magazine I wanted to check a few things out in store so that's where we went on Wednesday. S had to come with me and in return for her patience I took her to a new (to us) playground where she spent a very happy hour.
There were no plans for Thursday and I did wonder what we would do but in the end both children were busy with friends and I was hardly needed at all. This has happened a few times recently and is a very strange feeling.
Yesterday was lovely. G is now working closer to home and is able to cycle to work. He put in an extra hour on Thursday so he could leave early yesterday and was able to meet us at Royal Victoria Country Park for a picnic lunch.
Good food, good games, good company and good fun.
And another selfie, this time me and S, complete with her bunny ears.
