Tom's mum was visiting for her birthday and Tom's sisters all live in our local area (ish) so we hung out together before the heat got us and certain toddlers had to be home for nap times. It's lovely that Wilf has two of his cousins living so close by. Tom's sister joked that each year we come with another pushchair, it is often the mentioned that Tom and I will have another by next year but I assure you that isn't in the plans for a good while yet.
Wilf got to make his very own lantern, which as you can see he was pretty proud of (he stepped right up and asked the lady for some pens to get started, and got stuck right in). There was a drumming workshop which he was very interested in but didn't quite build up the courage to try. Rather amusingly though the next morning he barged into our room, having found him drum in his toy boy and was beating it merrily. Having practised at home he was ready for his performance, a perfectionist some might say.
After such a busy week away from home during the days and working all evenings it has been nice to relax in the sun with my little family. Hopefully things will start getting a little calmer over the next few weeks. Wilf is starting his settling in sessions this week and I am feeling so good about this situation, his nursery is fantastic and he seemed to love it when we went to view it so fingers crossed it will an easy transition. I always thought I would prefer a childminder but as it happens I went with my gut instinct and the nursery was a much better fit for us.
On our way home we stumbled upon the most beautiful (working) vintage radio for £20. It fitted perfectly in our pushchair so we got to bring it home with us, I'll post a better picture soon, it is quite a find!
Hope you all had lovely sunny weekends, did you go anywhere? Relax in the garden? We even had the paddling pool out!
