It has been a glorious week this week seeing friends and enjoying the very definite spring-time weather…just lovely!
We had friends over from Northern Ireland just for the weekend but we squeezed lots in and were exhausted by Sunday 🙂 Danielle took all the older girls up to London to see the sights:
The trip up to London last summer obviously did the trick as they all seemed to do well finding everything they wanted to see. They had make overs at Lush:
Tried on clothes they would never wear out in public (the girls had mini mini denim shorts on….
Tried on lots (and lots) of clothes in Top Shop:
Dreamed some very unrealistic dreams in Harrods (the jacket Charlotte is holding is £2000!):
Completely smashed the whole travelling on the underground:
And lastly saw the sights with a boat ride:
Next day we all (well, all the females) went to the Ideal Home Exhibition:
where we bought some snacks at an extortionate price:
Had another make over:
Tried our best to see everything we could:
before leaving, happy but very tired:
Next day they had to leave. Becca was very sorry to see them go, but we had all had a great time!
Monday, A8 was at a friend’s house so B5 and I spent lots of time together:
We went to a charity shop and bought a cuddly teddy bear for a pound:
Climbed trees (well, I didn’t, obviously, but B5 did whilst I played photographer):
Fed the ducks:
and the geese:
watched the terrapins:
before heading off to the park:
The rest of the week was spent with my little ones:
going for walks:
visiting the pond:
going to the park:
doing some bunny hunts at the library:
and having impromptu picnics:
Thomas has been busy working each day at the bakery and his gardening jobs, and the girls have been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to take any photos of them.
To encourage sibling love Thomas is planning on spending 1-2-1 with each of his twin sisters separately, taking them for a hot chocolate. I did manage to grab a photo of them thanking him. And this is a great photo to end on:
I just LOVE the privilege of being a mother <3
