Easter week has very much been about one word for us:
Hubby and I have both been off work, meaning the three of us have been able to spend our days together and we also got away for a mini-break in Southampton (you can read more about that here).
As well as that we had my mum and dad down for a lovely visit, which Little Miss thoroughly enjoyed. Nanny brought with her the best part of a new warm weather wardrobe for the little lady! It was a little bit excessive really but I can’t complain as I’d yet to get around to buying any summery things and it will save us a lot of money. Plus it clearly it makes my mum happy to spoil us a bit from time to time. Little Miss shamelessly stripped off in the living room to try her new gear on – although wearing one pair of shorts on your head while having both legs in a single leg hole of the other pair is a look that is unlikely to catch on!
We also enjoyed a big family gathering with my husband’s family, which these days involves no fewer than seven children aged six and under, including three two-year-old girls! Little Miss enjoyed playing in the garden with her cousins and unwrapping some lovely Easter presents.
The rest of the week has seen the three of us hanging out together. Little Miss enjoyed a swimming session with Daddy. It was her first time in a pool since last summer but after a tearful shaky start – when she was desperate to keep her socks on! – she loved it. She’s also the proud new owner of a Peppa Pig rubber ring.
We also had a trip with Granny and Grandad to the soft play facility in our local leisure centre. You need to be two to use it so it was Little Miss’s first time there and was another big hit.
Tomorrow it’s back to the work/nursery routine for the first half of the week – boo! But at least we have another long Bank Holiday weekend to look forward to – hooray!
Hope you’ve had a great week, whatever you’ve been up to!
This post is part of the Word of the Week linky run by fellow blogger Jocelyn over at The Reading Residence. The idea is very simple, every week you come up with one word to sum up your week.
